On Saturday we went to the markets, nothing like the Farmers Market in Tauranga, but cheaper fruit and veges than the supermarkets. Made the Haymaker Pie for dinner which everyone loved.
On Sunday we went for drive out to Lake Tarawera, it was a beautiful day... My daughter who hates her photo taken allowed me to take a few from her this outing, Chris was at his mates house so missed out. While out there we decided to have a walk (well Steph and David walked, I was in the chair :)) through the Buried Village, it is free for locals or $32 if you live out of Rotorua, personally I think it is a rip off but hey thats me....
Did my nails with an OPI yellow nail polish, have been looking for one for ages a nice yellow one, well this was not a nice yellow one, lucky I only bought a mini bottle, I then put a silver crackle on the top thinking that might look better, well that made them worse lol.... I call it karitane yellow but I can not be bothered changing it before we head to Palmerston North on Wednesday...
The upp in meds, is really knocking me for six... this morning I took my night meds, and was wondering when I was getting a few groceries why I was so tired... :(, have to really watch myself now for a while and hope the side effects calm down sooner rather than later.... cause right now I am a dangerous person to be around :).
It is kinda funny how people talk about CRPS as invisible pain, cause I certainly not only feel my pain, I can see it as well, with swelling, colour changes, temperature changes, like I am cold to touch but am sweating like a not very ladylike pig :).
On Friday got my hair bleached again, it is now how I love it... no colour in it this time around - photos above of my hair :)
This morning my Aunty (dads sister) in Holland passed away, that cancer took her life away, like most of my Aunties and Uncles. Have met her once a few few years ago, when I went to Holland.
Just thinking about this low carb eating, if it works as well as people have said, then why are the doctors not picking up on it... is there enough long term studies done on this way of eating, don't get me wrong that I am against it cause I am not as I am doing it - just curious if the success rate is as high as what we read, why are doctors not recommending it more, or why are diabetes organisations not promoting it, surly if it works as well as they say, it would be promoted more? I have yet to do it long term, so have no idea what long term results are for me. I can understand why people eat like what my parents and grandparents ate like in their day, as there was no fast food companies etc... so people like my family who did not have much money, lived basically of the land, but they ate things like homemade bread, potatoes, rice.... etc, higher carb foods. I try and eat as little as possible processed foods... Just curious thats all :).
I have done nothing on my CRPS website, hoping to tomorrow and better pack as well for Wednesday when we go away, I am not looking forward to going away with not being very well at the moment, but the contact course is absolutely compulsory, if I don't go then I don't pass :(
So you prob wont hear from me till the weekend, unless something really exciting happens between now and then, oh and next week have an appointment with ACC next week, thats enough to stress anyone out :)
