I went to see my Naturopathid doc this morning for a check-up. Of course he wants me to get in for a PAP smear and ... shudder ... a mammogram! I know people feel very strongly about having mammograms done, but I personally do not intend to get one done at this point in time. I may POSSIBLY consent to an ultrasound of my breast tissue, but that's it. If radiology can't perform this with a req then it's just not happening.
Nothing exciting to report. I seem healthy on the outside, BP good in spite of my excess sodium intake. I keep trying to get that down, but it's everywhere! I had 8 large vials of blood drawn, which included a vial for B-12 & folic acid levels. They fed me breakfast before I left - an organic apple and protein shake. I'll know more when the results come back, but hopefully my MPV was high last year because my B-12 was low. I'm crossing my fingers!
I haven't gotten my workout in yet, but I will shortly. I haven't missed a workout day in weeks so in spite of lacking a little motivation the past few days I have done well. In fact I've even gotten more time in than I'd planned just to push myself for being a whiny baby about it. I'm happy to say I felt better for it and my motivation is back on track.
We've made it half way through the week and I see a major storm in the middle of the country. Please be careful if you are in that area!
