I'm Melting! Melting! What a World! What a World!

It is hot. Humid. Sticky. Nasty. I think I am going to melt into a little puddle of goo before the day is over. When I do, just get out the hose and wash me away. lol

I stayed at 1200 calories, yesterday. Go me! I am doing well today, too. I am so sick of this stall I put myself in. Only I can pull out if it. If there is any comfort, it is that I haven't gained anything. Small comfort but comfort, none the less.

I am so swollen. Even with the Lasix, my legs feel puffed and heavy. My hands feel swollen, too. Heat and humidity does this to me. I need to talk to my doc when I see her next month and see if there is any more relief she can offer. 'Cause I gotta tell ya, it is damned uncomfortable.

Let's see.. What else? I am doing laundry. Yay. I didn't make my bed and I am unlikely to do so. Did the other stuff I needed to, tho so I am not a total lazy slag, today. lol

Heh! Heh!  Reminds me I need salad stuff. 


  1. Its really hot where I am and I'm having a laz-o day....just blog surfing!

  2. Humidity is the absolute worst!!! It's not good for anything-especially if you have hair like mine!!!! Hope you can cool off and the swelling goes down!!! I know it is miserable!!!

  3. Yep! 93 was our high today. *sings* Feeling Hot Hot Hot!! :) Go you on calorie tracking!!

  4. I just got done sitting out at a soccer game and it's still hot out! But at least I'm tan! Ha! Thank you for the comment on my blog today - it means so much to me.

  5. I saw today on the weather how horribly hot it is where you are. My 94 didn't seem so bad then.

  6. Go you indeed! We're in the heat and humidity muck too. I. Hate. It. Anyway, hoping you feel better today and keep up the good work!

  7. Whenever I'm having a hard time getting rid of excess water I chow on some cucumber, it helps me.

    It's hotter than hades here too, sucks big time, as soon as I leave the house to go to work my hair deflates and I am instantly damp.

  8. Ick! Humidity, not fun!!! LOVE the LOL cat picture! And hope your weekend is a good one!

  9. Hot here too but I'm not complaining because soon we'll be back to below zero. Don't like the humids though so didn't get the garden tilled, maybe tomorrow.
    Hope you can get some relief on your swellings. Not fun hurting and being uncomfortable.
    Take care and God Bless!!

  10. So today was a lazy day where I could have reached numbers but flat out didn’t care to try and then saw something, actually a few things that made me get my butt up and workout. The first was this

    It made me laugh but then I went into the bathroom and looked in the mirror and felt all serious and stopped. Buzz kill.
    Then I was helping my nephew with homework and read this article

    that basically said your overweight and it has been shown to kill young women so do something about it before you become a statistic.
    Then I ran 3 miles and hit the gym for a hour.
    Then I came to your page after that cause my ankles are puffy as hell too. I am so glad your here Erika.
