Day One Hundred Eighteen

June 19th, 2016 at 05:55 am

Calories: 1434

I can't believe how well I did on calories, considering the eating I did at the carnival. But I did skip dinner. My main treats at the carnival were a crabcake sandwich and Italian ice. I also got into the caramel corn and cheesy fries that others bought.

Spending -- well, I spent $25 at the carnival, with little to show for it. Mostly went to activities for the grandchildren. They had a good time, though they got tired and crabby at the end. I understand, I was tired and crabby, too, though I held my crabbiness in.

I really can't stand for very long any more. I can walk, but just standing around and slowly strolling are murder on my hips and legs. I went home afterwards and immediately hydrated and took Advil. I still had a baseball game to go to. At least I can sit through that! But I didn't want my legs throbbing while I sat.

Hoping that weight loss will at least help if not solve this issue. And I should be more regular about stretching exercises.

Shifting to finance -- I am going to change my tracking from a strict monthly (1-31) schedule to a schedule that coincides with my payday, which is the fourth Wednesday of every month. So when I get paid on the 22nd, that will essentially be the first of July for me, since the bulk of July's expenses will come out of that payment. It is awkward to have a few days after pay day when I feel like I can't spend anything, because I am trying to come in under budget. The budget should really reset on pay day. So -- the only reason I'm explaining this to you guys is that you will see monthly recaps before the end of the month, which might look like I'm jumping the gun, or even worse, cheating!

Now I'm focused on the birthday dinner for DIL. My schedule: tomorrow I'll order the gift and grocery shop, Tuesday I'll clean the house, Wednesday prepare and serve the dinner.

And then on July 1, it's up to Michigan again for the July 4th holiday.

Everyone with a father, who is a father, married to a father, or has children who are fathers -- Happy Father's Day!

    If the $25 spent made for happy grandkids, I'd say you did have something to show for it, Smile

    I wouldn't beat myself up over the $25...you spent it with time for the grandkids and that is priceless time.

    Sorry about your not being able to stand...do you have back issues? I have discovered since I have had some back problems, certain things really bother me. For years I have had calluses in the ball of my feet and one doctor told me not to wear heels. I didn't wear heels. Now I have read it is called Greek toe or Morton's toe and it is a bone in my food that causes friction, but can also cause back problems.

    No, my back is okay -- it's my hips, legs, and feet. And I do have a terrible callus on the ball of my feet below my pinkie toe. It causes a lot of pain. I constantly work on getting rid of it, but it never goes away entirely, and it always comes back strong. I don't ever wear heels, either! I think I'm going to have to see a podiatrist, eventually.

    Glad your back is OK. You might Google Morton's toe and see if this looks like what you have.
