Despite one more day away from the walking track, today has been pretty fair, so far.
I did get outside and soak up what little tiny itty bitty speck of sun that was out there.
Went to the tanning bed and now I have a slight headache. It is nothing new, I often get the slightest headaches on tanning days and yes, I do wear my safety glasses.
Went to the drug store and picked up my Vitamin D, (ergocalcifero, 50,000) popped one of them bad boys in my mouth and drank it down with some orange juice fortified with calcium and vitamin d.
Then I stopped and picked up some mushrooms and a big fat orange and I am going to make myself a healthy dinner tonight of grilled chicken breast with mushrooms and steamed veggies.
I didnt get to walk, well, ok lets be honest, I JUST DIDNT WALK. I hate to sound like a crybaby, but I really cannot tolerate the wind.
The cold seems to stay with me lately, my nurse friend told me that also might be a symptom of my low vitamin d and that I probably do need thyroid tests done.
I have had them done before, but its been a few years, I honestly dont think I have anything wrong in that area, I just think my body is growing older and maybe more intolerant of the elements.
But let me tell you, heat or no heat, sweat or no sweat, when that sun starts shining again and putting out some real uvb rays I plan to be out there soaking them up and I cannot wait.
I really need it, not only for my vitamin d, but for my sunny disposition, lol.
Today like I said has been pretty good, I went ahead and sparked the foods I plan to eat for dinner and so far, I am right on track, if I stick to that plan, I am going to have a big healthy dinner and a good snack as well.
Hoping everyone else is having a good day, No, make that a great day.
