Ok, today was an upper body workout. I hate upper body workouts because they always involve things like pushups. And my new dreaded exercise, the triceps dip. I cant do pushups. I tried anyway and did what I could. I am sure my form was bad, but I didnt give up! Then came the triceps dip....who thought of that?? I'd love to give them a smack to the back of the head. I didnt give up though...I kept trying it. I dont think it's a good exercise for me right now though. I pulled a muscle in my back a couple of weeks ago and this one made it start aching again. Not bad, but I think I'll skip it and do something else next time.
My eating is still not under control. I had a good breakfast this morning, but I blew it at lunch. I'll do better at dinner tonight though. No use screwing up the whole day, right? I think it's because I am so tired an sore that I am eating poorly. Not an excuse, just trying to look at my mentality while I am doing it. I know I eat more when tired and I know that I eat for comfort. I need to find something else for comfort and maybe take a nap instead of stuffing my face. Maybe I'll try that.
Good news....I went to the dentist yesterday and all my teeth are doing great! No cavities at all. Gums looks good! Apparently my dentist has been right for the last 10 years and flossing really does help. Who knew? I do have a couple of old fillings that need replacing, but they are doing fine for now.
Today I went to the eye doc. I have been getting headaches at the computer lately. I noticed it's harder to focus on things that are close up. It's all a part of getting more mature...yeah...mature. She said physically, my eyes look good, so that's great news. She also said to go up a level on my reading glasses and up 2 levels on my glasses for stitching. I forgot to take my old glasses in with me, so we had a hard time with one of the tests and since I drove myself in, she didnt want to dilate my eyes. So, I mentioned my husband was going in on Saturday so she's fitting me in with his appointment to do the test with my glasses and the dilating! Awesome!
No doc appointments tomorrow...but Friday is my annual Boobie check. Let's hope that one turns out just as well. Then the week after, I am getting my yearly physical. I already did my bloodwork and everything came out good. So, by the end of next week I will have been completely checked over by all my docs. And next year I can remember to schedule all the appointments all at once again so I dont forget anything!
