Guess it's been a while since I've blogged. I used to be so good about it. I've been busy working on my health issues and fitness minutes and cleaning and.... So I decided that I should update those of you who've been following my journey.
Regarding my health issues - the only issue I'm dealing with right now is the heartburn and indigestion issues. I'm still having them, but not as bad. Since I don't have acid reflux, it's been said it's bile reflux. I take the same medications, but with one, I have to dissolve it in water - which is a pain in the rear. Insurance won't cover the liquid form. I've also got a new stomach pain, which I went to the gastro MD about. He's concerned and when I mentioned colon issues,, he said that was what he was thinking. So, since we've done tons of tests already, I now get to have the "fun" colonoscopy. Regular people don't get them until their 50, but I'm "special" and get to have one in my 30s. I'm not looking forward to this at all.
I've been working here and there - just filling in when I'm needed - about once a week. The guy that I've been helping, Fred, is now going to need me every Friday. So I FINALLY have one steady client. I like helping Fred and his cats. He's a nice man with nice cats and nice family and he lives close by. It's an easy job too - I get paid to help him (very little) and read whatever book I bring with me.
I'm gaining weight an it's driving me nuts. I was so upset about it that when hubby and I went out to eat the other day I totally cheated and had THREE slices of pepperoni pizza and one of his crusts. I don't usually eat that much. I just figured that since I've been eating healthier and gaining weight, I might as well eat what I want. I know, it's not a good attitude, but it's just driving me nuts and I don't know what to do. I'm so close to goal weight too. UGH!!!
It's been raining a lot here in Mass., so when it's not actually raining, hubby and I are outside. We walk and hike. We'll probably bicycle again soon. Sometimes he goes fishing and I read a book. Of course it was beautiful on Saturday and I had to work 'til 1:30.
