Thank you so much Hats, hubby is just going wild today, I'd hate to see what he's got planned for next year's birthday when I turn the big 6 - 0. He made me breakfast this morning, bought me coconut ceylons, 2 PS3 games and tomorrow he is getting us Chinese food. He's still talking about buying me more stuff but I said no, enough is enough. It's an inner struggle about getting that coconut banana cake, but I have to watch the sugar. I've been battling with high blood pressure lately but it's starting to come down. Yesterday we took my BP and it was 129/92, not too crazy about the 92 but it's better than 158/90 at the doctor's office. Today I have to take it easy, I've been doing PS tuts and now my back is aching. I told myself I wasn't going to do them anymore but then those little gems catch my eye and I can't resist. I'll post the ones I've been working on. Thank you once again for the birthday wish, will let you know how the cake battle goes.  sunny

Hi StarLite - glad to hear things are going pretty well for you. Happy 59th birthday!

I also had a full physical recently and found out my triglyceride level was in the high range. He prescribed me Fenofibrate to help lower it, but I'm going to try a more natural way first. Tweak my diet, cut down on the alcohol, and try taking the fish oil capsules since I read that omega 3 helps cut it also. My blood pressure was also a concern, the first time I took it, I got a 120/90. A month later they took it again, and it was 120/78. I should probably start taking a daily reading myself to keep track of it.

Wish you and other AP'ers a healthy year!

Very interesting. 59th year, blood pressure ,
this all reminds me of an Incident I had at Roanoke, recently.

while getting Chinese food I saw some markings on an egg roll that looked sort a like ,
C R O A T A N
instead of soy sauce, all they had was something called fenofibrate.

ever heard of anything so wild ??
anyway,
Happy Birthday Mrs. StarLite Moon.

Thank you Lakerz and Harold, I like your little plug at Roanoke, I hope you will like my next game, although it is a bit of a scary supernatural thriller.

I just took my BP and it was 127/88, very pleased with that. I hate taking medications too. I've upped the speed on the treadmill, I couldn't believe the sweating I did. I'm going to start working on my weight now, I've stopped sugar, I use Xylitol in my tea. I'm going to try to go a whole year without sugar, but it's hard when they keep making that coconut banana cake I love so much. Well folks I'm off to see what mischief I can get into. Be careful not to step into any strange time machines and if you do, I'll meet you at Roanoke, just don't forget the password  flower

My health got a whole lot better over the past 18 months since I started to force myself into a daily fast walking routine. The area I live in is quite hilly, so it does not take much to get my heart rate up to healthy levels. Try to do on average 4 miles a day 5 days a week. Sugar has never been a big draw for me thankfully, I have no problem staying away from desserts and sodas and all that. I do like my beers though, especially IPAs, and those basically metabolize directly into sugar, so drinking a few is identical to having a huge dessert. Bad news all around.

Good luck with the treadmill, stay at it!  sunny

Glad to hear you are doing much better Lakerz, I love walking too when I can, but sometimes my back says no. My BP was really good last time I took it, 122/80, I couldn't believe it, I guess it's the medication.

Hubby moved my computer to the livingroom because I can't sit now on a chair. I think this was a big mistake because I spend more time on the computer than before. Not that bad I guess, I do love working on my graphics and my game. I get so sick of working on Hawk Manor and have to take a break for a few days and then I get on a roll and can't stop. I was hoping to release it for Halloween but I'm not sure that's going to happen. It would if I worked on it day and night but then I wouldn't be able to walk at all. Oh well, the perils of old age I guess.

I don't drink pop or juice, the most sugar I get is a mint after dinner but that's even taking a toll on my eczema. I can't even have a lousy stinking mint. It's funny, it seems that after dinner is when I feel the crave for a sweet.

Keep up the walking and you'll see the improvements in no time. I'm nursing a cup of tea at the moment, once I'm finished that I'm off to the treadmill.

Hi StarLite, the most important thing is taking care of your health. Hawk Manor will get released when it gets released and we will play it then. Smile

Hi Hats, the game is on hold for a little while. My blood pressure is back to normal and I've lost 6 lbs. Hubby and I have a new way of eating now and he has lost 3 lbs. Still doing the treadmill, but unfortunately am suffering from Vertigo now. Bromazapam helps it when it's bad. I can't believe October is here. Where has summer gone, I feel like I'm stepping in and out of a time machine. Well I have a couple of vids to post so I'll do that. Take care and hope you are feeling good too sunny

I can't believe it's already Oct either. We didn't have much of a summer here this year.We had a couple 100 degree days. Just very unusual weather for us here. Aug is usually very hot, dry and no wind. I suppose summer will be back to normal next year.

Before you know it the little mummers will be here. I pulled out the Halloween decorations today to make sure they weren't moldy because it rained last year and they got wet. I hope it stays dry at least for shell out. We have to trim the tree out front because it had grown over half of the steps and I don't want the kids to catch there costumes on it, plus we're running out of room on the steps sunny
