Trying to follow doctors suggestions
Tuesday, April 24, 2012
After lots of thought and, if I'm honest with myself and whats the point of doing all this if I'm not going to be honest....lots of stalling..
I've decided to take the appetite suppressant the dr suggested. I did as was required and got weighed and blood pressure taken today so am all set to start tomorrow. Part of me is excited and part is scared.
I'm also going to work on following the dr's suggestion to curb my workouts; maybe curb isn't the right word so much as working up to things and remember the weight I am putting on my joints and bones. I am also planning on going to a running store this weekend and have them tape me walking on the treadmill and recommend tennis shoes. I know it'll be expensive but I have also learned that it's worth it (too a point) to not be in pain. I used to wear walmart and payless shoes until the first time my stepmom bought me a pair of good shoes and OMG!! it made such a difference! I don't buy shoes as often now but when I do they are good shoes. lol In fact the last dress/work shoes I bought were 2 years ago.
For team weigh in this week my weight is up 2lbs..bleck!
My boss is driving me nuts at work!!! There are times I just really wish I could yell at her "Alright! Retire already!!! Geez..early 70's is old enough to enjoy yourself and stop working!!" Not like she needs the money...doesn't cash paychecks in a timely manner so I know that. Can be a sweat heart but we are from such different generations combined with the fact that she is a major control freak and always has to have her nose in everyones business gets old!
Time to get off of here and visit with my darling son before bedtime :)
