Stayin’ alive

A kidney dialysis/transplant diary

Friday update

Friday night update: 

Just about bed time. My calorie total for the day is just short of 1600. That’s a little more than I’d like (about 200 calories), but I feel I need a snack tonight so it’s going to be a tangerine and a half cup of 1% cottage cheese.

Besides, with the 2 hours of grocery shopping I did this afternoon, I expended 615 calories on top of the daily stuff.

Did get a big, beautiful poinsettia for the living room, too, so things look a little more festive here.  I kinda want that this year since it’s the first Christmas since I came back to life, so to speak.  Whoooo, I feel a Tim Burton moment coming on.

Gotta work tomorrow morning, so I’ll say goodnight.


OK, it’s a little before noon. I’ve walked 5 minutes (woo hoo!) on the treadmill at 1.5 mph, the week’s worth of menus is done (check under pages in the right hand column), the grocery shopping list is ready.  Time to make the Chicken Chili. It’s a CKD non-dialysis, dialysis and diabetes friendly recipe.  That’s good stuff. Now we hope it’s good eats, too.

And here’s the links to
Eggplant Seafood Stew good for CKD, dialysis and diabetes.
Barley and Beef Stew, it only lists dialysis — probably because of the protein —  but it looks good to me as far as diabetes, too.
