    I never thought of that. When I am off tomorrow, I am going to move the stove and check behind it.


    I am going to take your advice and buy the mouse traps that you put the cheese on, and that snap and kill them. Something has got to work.


    If these traps don't work, I may need to get a cat. Good idea about the motion activated sprinkler. I have seen the mouse, and lucky for me, it is not a rat.

    Day #40 - No Buy Year (2/1/19-1/31/20)


    Weds - 3/13/19. 60 elliptical, 10 treadmill (walking). Sauna 25. m-t-d workouts: 12/13. Today is the start of my liquid diet for my test on Friday morning. Liquid diet is an exaggeration, since I am allowed jello. :) Unfortunately, I forgot to make the jello last night. Today in this office is the monthly birthday celebration. This time, instead of having a cake, they are ordering pizza's. Of course, it is on the day of my liquid diet. :bang: I am not even attending, since I have no willpower. I am taking off from work tomorrow and Friday. I could have gone to work tomorrow, but I have to drink that drink that they make you take from 4:00 to 6:00 pm tomorrow, and I would have had to leave work early. It probably would have been better to go to work, to take my mind off the test. On the bright side, 2 days of basically fasting, and I will shed some pounds.

    Day #41 - No Buy Year (2/1/19-1/31/20)


    Thurs - 3/14/19. 100 treadmill (alternating walking / running slowly). Sauna 30. m-t-d workouts: 13/14. Today, I already have over 24K steps. 15K from the gym, and 9K walking around Costco and other places. I haven't been to Costco for months, and it is not a good place to be when you are on a "no buy year". I went because I needed new eyeglasses. I wanted to buy like a thousand things, since I have all this repressed shopping stored in my brain. But all I bought was 2 pair of eyeglasses, 2 packages of apricots, a package of Crystal Light, and the outdoor solar lights that I have wanted to buy for a while. I also bought mouse traps at Home Depot. The rules for my "no buy year" allow for food, and home repair / improvement purchases. I bought the crystal light to use for the drink I have to start drinking shortly for preparation for the colonoscopy. I am substituting Crystal Light for the flavor packet they supplied with the prep drink . I called the pharmacist, and asked if it was okay to substitute Crystal light, and she said it was okay. It is about 4:30 pm now on Thursday, and I haven't eaten anything since about 8:00 pm on Tuesday. That is about 44 hours. :eek: I won't be eating anything until after the colonoscopy, which probably will be completed 10:00 am or so, the total hours of no food will total about 62 hours. I went the scale today, I am back in the 180's, though I am sure it is temporary (due to the fasting), I liked seeing it.

    Thank you. It went well.

    Sleep: Friday / Saturday 4.42 (3.08 deep, 1.34 light) - incorrect, slept much longer

    Day #43 - No Buy Year (2/1/19-1/31/20)


    Friday - 3/15/19. rest day. m-t-d workouts: 13/15.

    Saturday - 3/16/19. 90 treadmill (1/2 walking; 1/2 running slowly). Sauna 30. m-t-d workouts: 14/16. Colonoscopy went well. Got to the hospital, go to the area they do that procedure. They connect you to an IV (I didn't remember that part from the prior time I had this done). In about an hour, they roll the bed into the room where they do the procedure, the anesthesiologist puts you under, and the next thing you know, you are in the recovery room, remembering nothing of what they did (luckily). Got good results, no polyps, and no inflammation, and don't need another exam for 5 years. I was surprised, I was expecting stage 3 or 4 cancer (I always expect the worst). So I have no explanation of my gastro problems, but at least it is not colon cancer. My brother drove me to the procedure, and after we went to breakfast at a diner across from the hospital. I felt fine, and it was the first time I had pancakes in a few years. :eat: My brother drove me home, and then he left. I was still feeling fine, but 5 minutes after I got home, I threw up my delicious breakfast. The rest of the day I rested, and didn't even put on 2,000 steps. After about 60 hours of fasting, I weighed myself before I left for the procedure, I was 185. I wish I could stay there, but when I weigh myself tomorrow, I hope to still be in the 180's. Fasting for 62 hours was much easier than I had anticipated. Tomorrow I hope to start lifting again (back training).

    Glad all went well with the procedure. Hopefully the gastric issues will get better soon

    Glad the results were fine. And, as Mac wrote above, I hope that the other issues get better soon.

    Glad the procedure went well. We had dinner with friends last night and one of them is doing this on Monday and there was hardly anything he was able to eat. Doesn't sound like the most fun thing to do.

    It definitely is not the most fun thing to do. It is worse for the doctor, the patient is at least asleep. But on the other hand, the doctor gets paid for it.

    Thank you. I want to go to the doctor, and get tested for parasites, which I read can cause this problem. In the meantime, I am having a lot of fermented foods, which is supposed to be good for the bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract.

    Thank you. I hope to get this resolved.

    Day #44 - No Buy Year (2/1/19-1/31/20)

    Sunday - 3/17/19. back training; 90 treadmill (walking). Sauna 30. m-t-d workouts: 15/17. I haven’t done any lifting since about 2/23. Luckily I weighed myself, and took measurements today, since I probably would have blown it off again. I lost 1/2 of an inch in my back measurement since the last time I took measurements (about 3 weeks ago). Seeing that, got me to lift today. I did the 8 exercises I normally do, but at a lighter weight, and lower reps. But it is a start. I hope that muscle memory is a real thing.

    I have good news and bad news about my mouse problem. Last night, I finally got around to setting up the mousetraps. I put 2 near the stove, where the nest is. Anyone walking into my kitchen, would think I have a real rodent problem, I have the glue strips, 2 of the traps that the mouse can get in, but can't get out. I had no results with the last two methods. As I am walking to the kitchen this morning, I could hear the mouse, so I didn't think I got any results from the mousetraps. But I go into the kitchen, and there is a dead mouse in the mouse trap, and a live mouse on the glue strip. I expected the mouse on the glue strip to be making noise crying or shrieking, but was barely moving. That was the larger of the two. It took about 5 minutes, but I got both mice into a plastic bag. I took the bag outside, and dropped my garbage can on it, and killed it (so it wouldn't suffer), and disposed of both mice, and the mouse trap. Of course, when I return to my house, I hear a mouse scratching at the stove, so at a minimum, there were 3 mice in my house (hopefully not more). I was a little dismayed by the number, all along I was thinking - 1 mouse. I put more mousetraps down, and hopefully this one will go for the bait (peanut butter). I looked at a youtube video about mice last night, and the video said you normally get the best results from traps on the first night. Hopefully that is not entirely true. One interesting thing, the video said mice don't especially like cheese, but will eat it when nothing else is available. They like peanut butter, nutella, and chocolate according to the video.

    Day #45 - No Buy Year (2/1/19-1/31/20)


    Monday - 3/18/19. rest day. m-t-d workouts: 15/18. I woke up very tired, I needed a rest day today. So far, have about 3,500 steps today. Hope to put on about 4,000 at lunch time today. I check the 2 mouse traps this morning, and most of the peanut butter is gone, but the trap didn't work, or I didn't set it correctly, and there is no dead mouse in site.:( But I take it as a good sign, since at least the mouse was attracted to the trap. On the mouse video I looked at, they suggested mixing a bit of a cotton ball to the peanut butter, so it is harder for the mouse to take the peanut butter, and more likely for the trap to work. I skipped that step both days so far. Tonight I will try that. Happy Monday.

    You're making progress with the mice and hopefully there's only one holdout that will soon be caught.

    Nice to read that you're moving iron again.

    I hope it is only one holdout, and maybe not 30 more. :scared:

    Thank you about the lifting.

    Tuesday - 3/19/19. 60 elliptical, Sauna: 30. m-t-d workouts: 16/19. I was ready to go to workout this morning, But I couldn't find my eyeglasses. They weren't where I normally put them. It is good I bought 2 new pair (haven't rec'd yet), since I am wearing my spare pair. After searching for about 20 minutes, I found them in the pocket of the hoodie I wore when I got home from work yesterday. So gym visit was a bit shorter than planned. Same issue with mouse last night, the trap was picked clean of peanut butter, but the trap didn't go off. I am going to stop at Home Depot on my way home from work, and see if they sell better traps. These cost 4 for $2.27, so maybe they aren't the best.

After investigating more youtube video's on mousetraps, I saw the problem wasn't with the mousetraps, the problem was with me setting up the trap. Unfortunately, I fell asleep early last night, and didn't set them up last night. But I definitely will tonight (mouse was very noisy this morning):mad:. Tomorrow I hope to lift, probably legs.

    Thurs - 3/21/19. 60 elliptical; 15 treadmill (walking / running slowly). Sauna: 30. m-t-d workouts: 18/21. I wake up about 2 am thirsty, I go into the kitchen to drink a glass of water. I see in the kitchen next to the mousetrap is a mouse on it's side, partially under the stove. I see from the position of the trap, it did work correctly. I think I will clean this up later, when I get ready to leave in the morning. I come back at about 4:00 am, there is no mouse.:confused: I am not sure what happened. If the mouse was injured and crawled under the stove, or if it was not injured, and went back under the stove. I will say I didn't hear any mouse noises this morning coming from the stove. I am going to try again tonight with the mousetraps. On the weekend, I am going to move the stove, and see what is under it. The first 2 mice were blackish brown, this mouse was gray. I am hoping it was a mouse, and not a rat. :scared: It wasn't that large, but it was partially obscured by the stove, so maybe it was bigger than it looked. I can take having a mouse in my house, a rat is a different story.

    Friday - 3/22/19. legs, abs, 15 minutes treadmill (walking / running slowly). Sauna: 30. m-t-d workouts: 19/22. I didn't hear any mice activity in my house last night or this morning, so maybe I did get the last one. Prior to yesterday, I heard it from under the stove daily, both at night and before I left for the gym. Unfortunately, I did hear light footsteps when I woke up during the night coming from my attic, and I am going to put traps there tomorrow. My issue of the attic, is that to put the traps I have to open the entry to the attic, and I am concerned that whatever is up there, is going to go into my house when I open the door to the attic, or while I am putting traps down. I didn't mean to make this thread so much about mice, but this will be the tail :) end of the mouse talk. I started training legs and abs today, both of which I haven't done in at least a month. Less exercises, lighter weights, and less reps.:( But it felt good to be training both again. Tomorrow I hope to train chest or back. TGIF.

    Say it ain't so Shamie. I'm invested in your mouse travails and need to know the progress and the outcome.

    About your concerns with opening up the attic I think that if there are any critters up there they will not come near you and instead scurry away to other parts to hide.

    I am also now very invested in the mouse saga.

    Good job picking things back up at the gym. That's always something I think is hard to do after I've taken some time off.

    Thanks. More discussion below. :)


    Thanks. More discussion below. :) Harder than I anticipated. I didn't train any chest days since 1/19/19. Today was a killer, mostly for my ego.

    Day #51 - No Buy Year (2/1/19-1/31/20)

    Sat - 3/23/19. back training; 60 elliptical. Sauna: 30. m-t-d workouts: 20/23. I went to the doctor on Thursday night for my continuing gastro problems. He gives me a kit to bring a stool sample to the lab. :o There is a lab by house, but the ones near my house are closed on Saturday, but there was one open about 6 miles from my house, it was sort of near the gym, so it didn't bother me too much. I drive there before the gym, I bring the sample, the women there ask where is my prescription? I tell her, I didn't get one. This made me realize how stupid I am, since anytime they send me for a blood test, I get one. She tells me, how do they know what kind of test to do if there are no instructions from the doctor. Made sense. When I made the doctors appointment for Thursday, she had mentioned the doctor would be in on Saturday. So I drove back to the doctor, and get a prescription. The doctor is near my house, so a wasted trip 6 miles there, and 6 miles back, not to mention the wasted time. You would think this is the first time the doctor ever ordered the test, he of all people should know a prescription is required. So I am back in the lab office, the women tells me the doctor ordered 2 tests, and she needs 2 separate samples. She tells me they will do the one test on the sample I gave, but gives me the container for another sample. She tells me I can't do the test there (I was thinking she meant in the bathroom in the lab). But the lab was in an office building, so I go to the men's room, and "produce a sample". I go back to the lab office, she tells me they can't accept it, since the bathroom is used by many, and it could be contaminated. So I have to bring another sample next Saturday, since there are no labs near my office, and there are none that are open late during the week. The doctor said if these test don't show anything, I will have to go back to the gastroenterologist, and he will probably prescribe a probiotic. I already take a probiotic, but maybe he would prescribe a stronger one. So while I was at Whole Foods, I looked at their offerings, and they did have much stronger ones that I am taking, like 150 billion CFU's. They are kind of pricey, about $80.00 for a 30 day supply. I was tempted to buy, since it is still much cheaper than going back to the gastroenterologist, but decided to wait for the results of the lab test.

    Sun - 3/24/19. chest / ab training; 21 treadmill (walking). Sauna: 30. m-t-d workouts: 21/24. Speaking of the mouse, right before I left for the gym, I went to pick something up I dropped near the stove. As I am picking it up, there appears to be a string on the floor. But it wasn't a string, it was the tail of the dead mouse from a few days ago.:barf: I haven't heard any mouse noise coming from the house, so I hope the mice issue in the house is no more. But I hear noise from the attic, but still haven't put the traps in the attic. Hopefully tonight, but I wouldn't bet money on it.

    Day #52 - No Buy Year (2/1/19-1/31/20)

    Mon - 3/25/19. 65 treadmill (mostly running slowly). Sauna: 30. m-t-d workouts: 22/25. Yesterday I mentioned about the probiotics. Yesterday, I was at Wegman's (supermarket), and they had a 5 day intensive probiotic that had 400 billion CFU's :eek: (I have never seen one with over 200 CFU's). Again, I was tempted to get it, it sounds like it would be exactly what I need. But again, I decided to wait for the lab results. A few months ago, I convinced myself that I had diabetes and bought a glucose meter & testing strips, which were totally unnecessary, since my blood sugar and A1C turned out to be normal. To be fair, I did have some of the symptoms, but I should have waited for the results from the doctor first. I almost took a rest day today, but last minute decided against it. I woke up tired, I am in the process of cutting down overgrown bushes on one side of my house that are adjacent to my house, which the squirrels are using to get onto the roof. I cut 2 down, and there are 3 remaining. With the bushes there, I never noticed the siding had algae growing on it, so the house needs to be power washed (once the bushes are removed). Most likely, it will be me with a bucket, hose, detergent, sponge & ladder. :) Without the bushes, cleaning the gutters will be a breeze.

    That's quite the runaround you had with the doctor and the lab. Wifey takes probiotics and I think hers about 20-30 billion, which I thought was a lot, but based on what you wrote I guess not.

    Thanks for the mice update.

    20-30 billion is on the high side. At a certain point, I think it is overkill.

    Day #53 - No Buy Year (2/1/19-1/31/20)

    Tues - 3/26/19. shoulders, triceps, abs. Sauna: 30. m-t-d workouts: 23/26. I felt very unconditioned today. This is what happens when you basically stop lifting for 2 months. Overhead press formerly I was doing 5 sets of 10 @ 80 lbs. Today doing 60 lbs felt heavy. Scary how fast you lose muscle.
