Good Morning,

I am trying to get adjusted to the medication that I am taking--it sure makes me sleepy. That's a good/bad thing because the sleepiness takes over whenever it wants and sometimes it is at the wrong time. It is helping with some of my pain issues, and I am giving thanks for that.

I am waiting to talk to my doctor's office again about coming back to work full days. It will either be tomorrow or Thursday, depending on how we can make contact with each other. (The person I need to talk to is out of the office today, but if I understood the message correctly, it is saved on the computer and someone else can help me. I'll find out for sure when I call them back.

Yesterday was my really hungry day--I managed to stick with my plan, but it was sure a challenge. I wonder what caused that. It's probably another thing I can blame on the medication I'm now taking. It took all of my willpower to walk by the vending machine at the fitness center and stick with the grape tomatoes and watermelon chunks I brought with me. I did it though, yay for me.

I wish you all a perfect day--get in some extra activity, drink your water, and make healthy eating choices. You can do it!!

    I hate meds that make me sleepy or hungry. Heck I hate meds period. Always have. LOL.

    I hope they will let you go back to work full time.

    You did real well with the temptations. There is usually very little at all in vending machines worth eating.

    I am glad your pain is somewhat relieved and congratulations for not getting anything out of that vending machine. That took a lot of courage.

    Good on you resisting temptation! I am glad your medication is doing some good!
    Busy day here -two session bridge, one I am running, and the best donuts I ever had will be tempting me tonight. Part of our hospitality of welcoming new players..
    Hope your day goes well and you get good news from work!

    Glad you were able to say "I stayed on plan" during a challenging hunger day!

    Yummy, I had some watermelon for my snack last night and it was so good! Glad you've got some medication that's helping you with your pain, but it's too bad it makes you so tired. Lots of pain killers will do that, I found that out when I got my wisdom teeth out...oh man, I'd take 2 of the pills they gave me and I'd be passed out within a half hour. Have a great day!

    Hope you get that call back about work work schedule. emoticon with the watermelon and grape tomatoes. Both are so yummy, but have never eaten them both at the same time. Will have to try that.

    Woo Hoo on the grape tomatoes and watermellon. They both sound really good to me right now and it's only 8 am for me!

    I have a medication I need to take occassionally and it makes me sleepy. I hate that part. I feel for you as being sleepy can cause us to give up on our journey so fast. Good for you for sticking with it! emoticon
