Thoughtful Thursday-- As in I thought I forgot to post last week.
Thursday, May 16, 2019
So I missed both Wellness Wednesday and Fabulous Friday. Oh well. Life goes on.
My body shape is changing but the scale isn't budging. So I'm just going to be happy that my shape seems to be shifting in the right direction. It's more about how my clothes feel than my weight anyway at this point. I'm done worrying about if the scale number drops. As long as it stays in the range I'm in right now I'll be okay. Worrying is counterproductive for me, according to my PC.
Side note: I told my friend this same thing. She told me that when I say I'm done with something she can never tell if I'm talking about people, a certain situation, or a sandwich. That the words "I'm Done" sound like iron doors clamping shut regardless of what I'm referring to. I don't know if that's good or bad.
I've been doing a Kali inspired Yoga flow from Brett Larkin on youtube this week. It's been fun and challenging. I dare say her idea of a beginner is a bit intimidating if you are a real beginner. But I am enjoying the flows. My summer programs won't look anything like this since I take Bug's skill into mind. She often joins me on the mat during the summers.
I had my first call with the therapist. I don't think we will mesh well. I've very anti-med (Xanax and valium specifically. There are family addiction issues) and she was very pro med and wanted to refer me to someone else that could write a prescription. Well, I have a primary care doctor. I don't need or want that. My PC I've been seeing for 5 years gets that I'm leery of meds and seriously understands why. So I'll give the therapist another shot in a couple of weeks. If she's still very much a pill pusher that will be the end of that and I'll see what the next step is.
The school year is winding down. This coming Monday is the last day of school. It's awards day. Mine got her notice of recognition for Monday. She's getting at least 1 award. She's hoping for the science award too, but we won't know that until they call out her name. If she has the highest science average that will be 4 years running.
Next Friday (24th) is Bug's allergist appointment. She has peanut allergy testing this time. I'm not nervous. I'm 99% sure nothing has changed. I wouldn't even put her through it if I didn't need her certified self-carry for school next year. She has to be trained by the nurse. No big deal. After this year I'm pretty sure her primary care can take care of our paperwork and epi-renewal.
So that's it for this week. How are you Spark Friend?
