Little Bit Of A Setback

Friday, October 16, 2020

emoticon I'm a bit under the weather. Poor DD12 is sick and I have caught it. Just a stomach bug, thank goodness, but oh, the body aches! Does not help that it is finally getting chilly here again (love it, but not when I'm achy!). I napped a lot yesterday. I actually thought at first it was lack of coffee, we didn't have any in the house and so I didn't have any. But no, I ran a slight fever. Ugh. I hope it goes away soon! DD has had it for a whole week, but then she let herself get dehydrated because of the nausea (we are working on it).

Trying a new fruit blend in my 'smoothie.' I can't really call it a smoothie when it has bits in it. The fruit blend is pineapple, coconut, and strawberry. Pretty good, once you get over the bits. I'm making it a priority to get a new Ninja blender at the end of the month.

But my set back is that between the rough, exhausting TOM last week, severe anxiety, and then sick this week I have gained weight. So, I haven't really worked out much and that has led to some weight gain, just two pounds. I'm at 200 even. I don't see it as much of a setback, but there it is. I'm still going with as much determination and motivation as I had before, I just won't reach my goal as soon as I'd hoped, two to three weeks off. Possibly more because...

Eye surgery is in my future. My eyelid and muscles around my eye is what is causing the flickering and shaking. That is what Botox was originally created for. Most of the time it goes away on it's own, I'm told. If it has not by the time I have my post op in two weeks, I'll get the injections, once insurance approves it. So far it seems to be getting worse, not better. But, this seems to have caused my lens to shift in my eye, off center. It needs to be in place just right to help with my astigmatism. It is tilted. So, surgery it is. That means another entire month of recovery and not being able to work out to my full potential. But, since it is not my eye, I'm cleared to start working out now, so as soon as I am recovered from being sick, I'm going to start working out and do what I can, while I can

Hope your Friday is great!!
