One month later

Friday, July 13, 2012

gosh slow and steady right? it has been one month, of not eating nuts, corn or popcorn.. my favorites for fiber. and my thyroid blocker has been decreased to a half a pill, and a IBS med added. and i do feel better, sort of. some days i feel weaker, really sleepy, clumbsy, headachey... some days stronger, like i could play all day, move couches, pick up stuff, clean house??? rofl.

And it has been one month since i started back at the YMCA. sometimes i am so sore i just don't wanna go, but i go to the water fitness class anyway. stretching in the water has certainly helped. and playing water volleyball on the weekends has too.

I had my annual test done this week to, by my family doctor. (my doctor left the area, so i have a replacement doc) blah he hasn't impressed me yet. he makes leave feeling like i am ok, but leter i realize so many questions went unanswered. not to mention he doesn't test as many things as my last doctor did. he only tested my chloestrol, and sugar. not CBC, calcium, the ac1. and my stupid insurence wouldn't cover another bone density scan even though i was in the negitive 1 range. and now i have more new crap to worry about.

well if i watch what i eat, not as much fiber at one time, more soluble fiber with fruits and oats, not as much coffee or none, and keep swimming, i seem to feeling much better and god the bloating has finally gone down. you know i went up 2 pant sizes, in like a couple of weeks. at least my big clothes aren't still tight. ''yay.

slow and steady, slow and steady...

  The water fitness is wonderful -I'm trying to line up my own schedule for the Y classes for fall/winter. Water volleyball O'MY I would love that! Do you play at the Y? We do not have any such classes that I know of. I so love volleyball. emoticon

  Keep going. Never stop. You are worth it. So many of us value everything and everyone more than ourselves. It's time for ME!. We make time for those things we value. I am valuable and SO ARE YOU!

    You are going and doing. That is great. I too have physical challenges that don't make sense when you look at the "numbers" on a test. I am impressed with your tenacity!!!
