some good gains and some great losses

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

So far today has been pretty good. Compared to yesterday. I called to ask, after 3 weeks if there were any reports back about my foot.
I was spoken to in a very rude manner by the woman at the Neurologists office. This was my own fault, I had my reservations about going there but I gave in and wanted fast results, well, lo and behold, still nothing.
I called my doctors office and asked her nurse to see if they could get any news for me. And as of yesterday, they were told the tests had not been read yet.
What good was it to perform a test on someone if you didnt plan on reading it for a month???
I have to be in that area on Thursday so I am going there and requesting the disc and the test results so I can take them elsewhere.
I will follow my instincts better next time.

But back to today. I walked 40 minutes, and my foot didnt hurt, but did get a little more numb about half way thru, so I stopped and took a short break.
I have no idea if I am doing further damage to my foot by walking. If I had those test results I might.
I cannot put my life on hold any longer waiting for them to get their act together.
Then I came home to find the county working on my driveway.
I had hoped they would and they did a fair job, but they only worked on the part that connects to the main roadway.
It is still broken off pretty bad on the inside, making the driveway much more narrow.
I stuck a reflector down into the area where its still broken.
The guy pulled a small dozer over it so I am sure it will hold my car, its just a very narrow turn already out onto the roadway and I fear my tires slipping off.
Hopefully my land lady will find someone who can come out and fix it.
I had a nice lunch of veggie burger and salad and now its time to get started on some housework.
Oh and I almost forgot the best part, I got on the scale and I was pretty happy with the number.
While I am still 20 pounds heavier than I was, I am happy with the results of today because I am down 6 pounds and that is a start.
I will be overjoyed once, IF, I get those 20 pounds off and I will begin from there.
I plan to reset my whole SP plan soon, I am slowly moving in on maximum points, levels.
I dont know what happens when you reach the top level. But once I reach 20 pound goal, I am going to begin all over again.
So, there is some good and some not so good but the good of today outweighs the bad and that is the way I hope to keep it.
and back up early again tomorrow for another walk.
