Is a Clean Bowel really Important

I have been on a health kick the past month or so mainly because I am having so many problems with my hands that I feel are the result of the Arimedex that I take for cancer prevention. ( that was a huge run-on sentence... so deal with it) I am back on sugar busters( with that week break that I mentioned) because sugar is toxic for your body and I feel much better when I follow the diet. I have also been reading about having a clean bowel. You have no idea how many on line things you can get into about cleansing your bowel tract from the everyday toxins. One place a herbal medicine shop even has the most gaggy pictures I have ever seen. These nuts take the herbal bowel preparation and then after they produce the results... they use the hook provided in their kit to hoist that...ummmm product of digestion..... out of the toilet so that they can take a picture to send into the company who then puts it on-line. Excluding them there is alot of stuff out there about poo. I decided after much deliberation after reading pros and cons to err on the side of the pooees and sent off for my first of 3 bowel cleansing kits.... paid 50.00 for the bitch and didn't shit for a week. I then got talked into another radio infomercial brand called Colon Cleanse... I think that was about 35.oo and again did not achieve nirvana from a dirty duodenum. My ER doc tells me that for 10 bucks he could have given me a prescription for go-lytly and I would have crapped for a week. You see though, I don't think the cheap stuff works. I think you have to pay more money to really make it work and have a squeaky clean colon. So I tried my third thing and still did not do the job so to speak. I must have the worlds most resistant intestines to medication because swallow a mouth full of spinach and I am in the bathroom 6 times. So I am still on the quest for something that will empty my body of the toxins that I have been ingesting low these many years and that will greatly improve my quality of life that doesn't involve putting 5 liters of fluid up my behind like one homeopathic doctor suggested. The thought that has occurred to me is that all this stuff that I have been taking will suddenly let loose, all at once, at some place that would be totally inappropriate. You all will be able to tell if it works because I will be wildly healthy looking, , will have abounding energy, will have the glow of well being, and my skin will be alight from the inside, I will lose at least 20 pounds of belly fat, and I think my hair will grow too.

Talking Stoves, New Years Resolutions and Missing Teeth

Here it is the end of January and I have yet to enter an obvious blog.. one concerning my New Years Resolutions. Have you ever really thought about how many people ASK you what your resolutions are. This really is not their business and I felt that I could tell the asking party that not telling was my resolution. That didn't work and got very confusing to all.
Ms. X: okay Debbie what is your New Years Resolution this year?
Me: My resolution is not to tell anyone what my resolutions are.
Ms. X; what a good idea, so , now what are they?
Me: I am not telling
Ms. X: Well why on earth not??
Me: Well, its my New Years Resolution.
Ms. X: what is???
Me: Not telling
Ms. X: Not telling what??
My resolution for the three of you that read this is to lose weight and to save money for the wedding. I am not doing well with either one. I must admit though that I gave up on Nutrisystem.. not because it didn't work because it did BUT, I can't afford it. So I started sugar busters again. I am also being faithful to the gym and Joshua is helping me even though I try his patience at every turn. I had a cheating week when I really ate a lot of milkshakes because I had a tooth pulled. My dentist the wonderful Dr. Huff, in Lafayette, pulled one of my back teeth out because it was too far gone to save without a root canal and that was going to set me back 2000.00 bucks. I called Stan because I wanted confirmation that it was the best thing to do. I was hysterical, not because of losing the tooth but because I am terrified of pain. When I was a child my mother took us to a dentist in Columbus, Ohio named Dr. Sparks. That nasty, mean, cruel man pulled a molar from my mouth that was abscessed. I was about 6 and he didn't use an Novocaine. He said bad little girls didn't get any. I felt like an idiot in Dr. Huffs chair. He is an awesome dentist and has caused me no pain but its the POTENTIAL that gets to me... and I cried like a baby. I had snot dripping down my nose and had a death grip on his assistant, Joey's, hand. It came out and I was still alive and still hiccuping from the tears. I drank a lot of milkshakes and fell off the diet wagon. I am still thinking the wedding is a year away... I nearly poopooed when someone pointed out that it was going to be here in 7-8 months. I really have to get on the ball.

I was sitting having my diet breakfast the other morning and Stan tells me the stove is talking in French or some other language. I didn't bat an eye because I have a stove that lets you know by readout if you need to do something. I had noticed that I couldn't read it the other day and was profoundly greatful to Stan that he pointed out it was in another language. I really thought that I was having cognitive problems. So today in exercise I tell Joshua that the stove is talking to me in French and does he know anything about that? To which he says to me "so what is zee stove saying to you madam...queek, queek, zee toast it is burning" and on and on... he just kept it up, it was really funny but you had to be there... he had me laughing till my side hurt.

I went to see my nurse practitioner, the awesome Amy Guidry who is with Dr. Wiltz in St. Martinville. I am off the prednisone and really don't want to take it anymore and she gave me some other pills to take. So today I feel pretty good and was able to exercise without crippling myself. Better living through chemistry and all that!!!. Alot of my aches and pains will be lessened when I shave off the pounds so if taking medication helps me do that then I will take the pills and quit bitching.
I really have a lot to share in the next few days. I am going to post about Josh and Desiree's new business location and I have before and after pics that are just stunning.
Becky and I went to see the decorator and planner for the wedding and that will be another blog... hummmm what else..... I guess I will keep the blog updated as to my exercise regime and weight loss it might keep me on target. Till later dear friends.
