Somewhere Over the Rainbow...

How'd She Do Dat???

I visited my friend Karen's blog Lily Valley, and found her granddaughter creating rainbows on paper, using sunshine reflecting off a CD...
Just sayin...

Hello, my name is Mad Overkill Snapper and I DO HAVE POPCORN CEILINGS...
the shadow is a moving fan. 

I think I heard the rainbow say   "I am OVER it".....heh heh heh

I am singing …
Somewhere over the rainbow
yada yada yada
And dreams that you dreamed of, they really do come true.

Except if the song is true, WHY do I STILL have popcorn ceilings?

Aint this AMAZING?

A-Salt-ed Plus Flower Friday

Joining Rosy at LLB Backyard for Flower Friday 

Thursday lunch was a Hoagie from Noreens Deli, after my weigh in meeting at TOPS.

Thursday is our one day I allow myself to EAT OUT or BRING IN... NO cooking!!!!

The Royal wedding kept me home and in front of the TV all morning, on my regular shopping day.

Oh Well, she says to herself, LETS GO GET PIZZA.... we did! I also had Broccoli Cheese Soup.

Enough SALT for 3 or 4 days..   Alas! Sunday AM stepping on the scale I was UP 2 pounds since Thursday.

And dressing for my shopping at Walmart MY NEW RINGS DID NOT FIT. Think sausage fingers

 Can you say WATER RETENTION caused by SALT?

I drank a full glass of water, ate a banana and 2  pieces of watermelon and when I got to Wal-Mart I did a LOT of extra walking.

I knew to do this because for the past few weeks I had been researching what causes water retention and how to get rid of it if a person DOES SOMETHING STUPID...

You can stop right here if you don't need to know about foods that help.

I was A-salted by me, myself and I...…

If retaining water, add exercise, drink a lot of water. eat fresh fruits, veggies

Here is a list of a few foods that help

8 Diuretic Foods That Can Help You Lose That Water Weight
