MY SCALE IS STUCK !!
Tuesday, August 03, 2010
So, I have really been trying to stay on track and I think that I have made some progress. I am eating more regularly than I have in many years, much less meal skipping. I have been exercising as much as I can at the present time. I even bought a new pair of walking shoes. I am drinking 8 glasses of water daily. I'm tracking my food. The bottom line is "my scale won't budge". Oh let me clarify, it does fluctuate about 1/2 of a pound up and down. So I revise my diagnosis, the scale is not stuck-apparently I am stuck. I must admit that I continue to have totally sleepless nights; however, not as many as before. Last night I did not have one second of sleep. I don't ever nap. so you would think that I would sleep. Oh the joys of Restless Leg Syndrome and a C-PAP machine!!
On a different note (no pun intended), I am in the process of buying a mandolin from a guy in British Columbia. I should receive it by the end of next week. I had started to take mandolin lessons as part of my own contrived physical therapy program to alleviate my severe tremor that developed after shoulder surgeries. Then I wanted a "stand alone" instrument so I switched to guitar. Well that guitar seemed "gigantor" and I downscaled to ukelele. The uke is fun; however, my instructor said that he thought that I would be able to return to the mandolin now if I still wanted to play my Irish tunes. I found what looks to be an awesome mandolin in the classified section of the "Mandolin Café". I will continue with the ukelele, bodhran, harmonica, and add the mandolin. After all, why play 1 instrument well when you can play 4 instruments poorly? Hence, my self imposed moniker is totally accurate, "Jane of All Trades-Master of None"!!
I hope that all of you that read this purposeless diatribe are doing well and I am sure that those of you who do not read it will do even better...
