I am doing well today.
I have a dental appointment tomorrow for a cleaning and possible refit on my retainers. I am keeping my fingers crossed that my retainers can be refitted so my teeth do not shift anymore. If not I am back to the drawing boards on that. We will cross that bridge when we get to it. After that I have about 2-3 more hours in the chair finishing off everything else- 4 more cavities to fill. (I can only go an hour at a time due to my OAB) Then my entire dental will be done! The rough part is my appointment for my next fillings aren’t until May as that is the soonest they could get me in! That is so annoying because I just want this done. At this rate I will be spending the better half of a year dealing with all this. Oh, well it needs to be done!
After the dentist tomorrow it’s back to the doctor next week for a renewal of my prescription for my OAB. I was hoping to be off the meds by now; however, I do not think that is possible so I am not adding any pressure on myself. After talking to my doctor at the first visit he made it clear that lifestyle changes usually do not correct this problem so we will review every 3 months to see how I am doing. I am still not better but I am not bad either. Slowly but surely I am hoping to get off the medication and be able to manage this on my own. Again…no pressure. It will be what it is and I will just keep working towards a healthier me.
Weight loss wise I am still maintaining but not losing. I am still trying to find balance in my work outs when it comes to the OAB flares. I know they are something I have to live with but finding the right combination to promote weight loss and keep them from being so bad is what I am doing right now. All trial and error! Either way I am sticking to my goals set this month.
Spring cleaning is underway! Yes, here in Ohio there are still patches of snow and yes we are still getting flurries here and there but spring is around the corner. I have plans to blow the funk off the house and get things in order. I still have a few remaining boxes to unpack from the move a year ago! Lolz In all the cleaning I plan on getting Betsy out and giving her a once over. Once the weather breaks her and I will be going for long bike rides! YAY!
Hope everyone is well!
