After a string of good days, I'm in pain again today. My spirits aren't down at least at this point. (If it continues it can and does get me down because I just can't get away from it.) I'm not sure why exactly. It could be that I overdid it at Zumba last night. I went 35 min. this time instead of 25 and then afterward I was coughing so bad that I had to use my rescue inhaler. It could be the Albuterol itself in combination with some of my other meds - a pharmacy website said that it can result in arthritis/joint pain. But - achey or not, I needed to breathe.
Anyway, that hasn't changed my plans other than the fact that I'm going a lot slower. I was supposed to be at the library an hour ago but I'm putting that off until much later. A schedule that was made by me should serve me!
Going for day 10:
3457 steps, which I'm darn proud of because when I'm achey I only want to do about 700.
Keep living room clean
Monitor blood sugar and blood pressure
for dinner plus HCL. From tomorrow this line will read "digestive enzymes and HCL". So far so good. No burning or signs of too much acid.
Day 3 for:
