Day 94: Loving Myself Healthy

Monday, December 03, 2012

Today has been an excellent day because I got to go back to work. I have missed the pool so much. It was the longest that I've been out of the pool in over 4 years. It felt so good to be back in the pool & working out with my friends. It was a good day.

This afternoon I had to take my SD card from the CPAP to LINCARE. I got it there and found out that it wasn't working. I needed to get the machine itself and bring it back over there. Then the van started overheating. GRRR. My nerves got shot. I ended up back in the bathroom. YEP. IBS strikes again.
In the meantime I was going back and forth to the bus stop picking up granddaughters. Finally the result were retrieved from the CPAP machine & I am ready for the Pulminologist on Wednesday evening. I got a substitute for my evening class.... then went to AutoZone so that I could get some coolant for the van. Bought a new radiator cap too. Put a gallon of coolant directly into the radiator. SIGH. Talked to the mechanic who thinks that now the thermostat has gone bad from going through all the overheating before... he even admitted that he probably should have just replaced it when he did everything else SOoooooooooooooooooooooo we bought a new thermostat and he's going to come to the YMCA tomorrow and put it in after the van has had enough time to cool down. Yep, more money and more frustration... but I believe it will all be okay.

All & all..... I didn't overeat and I didn't go crazy. My caloric range is midrange, my exercise is HIGH because I stayed after work & did more workout on my own. Life is good and I am happy, even though I'm stressed. The beat goes on. Bright blessings to you all....

    So sorry to hear of your continued problems, Dawn. You really are doing so well with the way you are handling everything and keeping your food intake within range! You deserve a huge pat on the back for that! I hope everything can run more smoothly for you now.

    You seem to have handle your stressors very well. It's too bad the mechanic didn't follow through with his thoughts. They should know but then on the other hand, he may have been trying to keep the cost down for you and replacing parts that are working may work for a long time.

    I sure hope this is the last bump in the road concerning your van. I was in the pool at the Y for 90 mins today so that made me happy!
