Very little good news from my last blood test
Wednesday, July 29, 2020      5 comments

My nurse practitioner called me with the results and I'm not doing as well as I thought I was. My thyroid, blood sugar and iron levels aren't good ( how much meat do I need to eat???) and my kidney function isn't what it should be either. Add t... Read more
Finally Feeling better
Tuesday, July 28, 2020      6 comments

I still have a headache and yesterday evening I got super tired again, but I was well enough to get over 5000 steps, finally, and today I woke up and took a 15 minute walk. I had to take my inhaler and carry a big bag full of stuff in case of a... Read more
Asthma, allergies and a five day long sick headache
Monday, July 27, 2020      3 comments

I can't say I've been doing particularly well health-wise. I would be more worried I have the virus, but I can taste and smell, I don't have a fever, and I'm not more tired than it's reasonable to be. I think I have a mix of problems like my u... Read more

That's the good news. The bad news is that I planned on walking this morning but I woke up with my head a brick of unpleasant allergy heaviness from the rain yesterday morning and my lungs refusing to do their normal work of breathing. Asthma ... Read more

My fiance came home upset about something that happened at work and the dinner I made didn't turn out like I wanted it to and for whatever reason these two things upset me more than they normally would and I responded by eating too much. Ok, I ... Read more

I ordered some bands for my Fitbit, which should get here tomorrow, and when I get them I'm going to resynchronize my Fitbit app and relink it to SP. I'm curious as to how many steps I'm taking lately. I'm not going to aim super high on steps r... Read more

I'm especially excited about my menus for the week. We're having baked peppers with corn, salmon and green beans, beef barley stew, and pancake sliders and potatoes (I know this doesn't look especially good for you, but I'm going to make them a... Read more

Getting serious about the exercise thing now! I have a yoga mat and today I'm going to look over the exercises that came with the bands, and look up arm exercises for the weights, and then tomorrow I'll try them out. Since I wouldn't be going to... Read more
A bit of a crash
Wednesday, July 15, 2020      3 comments

Yesterday I went to my mom's and she and my sister and I talked about the wedding so long that I didn't get home in time to cook, so my fiance and I ended up going to a Mexican restaurant. I got the soup, which had the right calorie totals, but... Read more
Venue for the wedding booked
Tuesday, July 14, 2020      2 comments

Now I'm on to food and decorations. Since I love cooking I want to make most of the food for the wedding, with a little help from family. Or maybe a lot of help. My Mom has some food she always brought to weddings, and I plan on making her rec... Read more

I'm looking for a wedding venue for the fall, even though I know the plans might not work out because of the coronavirus. I'm getting a late start but I'm crossing my fingers I can find something, and that everything goes well enough that I can... Read more
I'm planning to put on my fitbit again soon

Right now I don't have a band because my dog Henry chewed it up. I actually do have another band, somewhere, but I have no idea where. I'm going to start pretty small, but I have been walking more and in fact I feel like I've turned a corner fr... Read more

I stayed up pretty late last, for me, looking for wedding shoes, but I finally found them and I have everything for my outfit except the perfume I want to wear and some shoe decorations. Am I excited? I'm kinda beside myself. In fact eating... Read more
Feeling better today
Friday, July 10, 2020      3 comments

Yesterday I did a lot of resting. I made myself and my fiance some delicious food, but other than that I didn't do all that much, and I feel so much better this morning. It never ceases to amaze me how taking a little bit of time to think... Read more
Not feeling great
Thursday, July 09, 2020      4 comments

Yesterday afternoon I started getting shooting pains along the incision on my stomach from surgery, and the incision was very messy when I changed my dressing last night. It hurts again this morning, and at some point I need to decide whether o... Read more
