I got the results of my blood/urine tests, but I haven't met with the nephrologist yet to review the results. That will happen in about 3 hours. One thing I couldn't help but notice, though, is that my Vitamin D level is very low. I wonder if that has been what's causing my leg pain and general discomfort. I can hardly wait to find out. I haven't rushed out to get supplements because I want to hear what the doctor says.

This is pay day. I paid the mortgage. I am holding off on other bills, as the deposit is still showing as "pending."

I owe more than I have in checking, so I'm going to have to transfer some money.

Here is my June recap:

Housing: $1069 (includes two assessment payments)
Vacation/Travel: $564
Gifts/Charity: $173 (includes two birthdays)
Utilities: $155
Eating Out: $91
Groceries: $89
Phone: $52
Personal: $40
Medical/Health: $36
Gas: $25
Entertainment: $21
Vet/Pet Suppies: $19
Laundry: $11
Fares/Parking: $8
Car Repair/Maintenance: $7
Household Supplies: $1

Grand Total: $2361

I spent 71% of my variables budget.

This morning I spent $30 on gas and $27 on groceries. My ten items at Food4Less were: cereal, blueberries, wine, onion, bread, olive oil, mushrooms, peanut butter, pasta sauce, and sherbet.

    My vitamin D was on the low of normal at 31 last year, which after reading I know is not optimal at all. This was after a full summer of full sun exposure, so I wonder what it was before! My doctor told me to eat more cheese and yogurt?! I so rolled my eyes at that. That is not going to get Vitamin D up at all. Sun exposure and supplements are more likely to assist.

    Often, if you are very low, the doctor starts you off with very large doses, then you may be retested and do a maintenance. It took me quite a while to get mine up. ( months)

    Foods that provide vitamin D include:
    Fatty fish, like tuna, mackerel, and salmon.
    Foods fortified with vitamin D, like some dairy products, orange juice, soy milk, and cereals.
    Beef liver.
    Egg yolks.

    Hope you found out what you needed to know. I'm just now getting to read your blog and the others because yesterday and last night every time I clicked on one, it would tell me it was unavailable.
