Follow-Up Day at the Doctor

Tuesday, August 13, 2019

Headed out about 10 for my doctor appointment and then proceeded to wait for about 30 minutes in the waiting room and then another 45+ after the initial stats were taken by the assistant. I just shrugged it off and used the time to do some Sparking and other emails. The outcome of the appointment:
emoticon Three months to get my other tests/procedures done.
emoticon Make an appointment with a sports injury doctor to see about other exercises and possibility of cortisone injections for the inflammation and pain in the knee.
emoticon Script for 8 weeks of massage therapy!
emoticon Down 2 lb since last visit!
emoticon Blood pressure was at a very nice low instead of wavering to be too high!
emoticon Work steadily on removing more carbs to assist healthy levels/functions remain with things like cholesterol and kidneys.
emoticon And of course the unspoken need---lose weight.

Once home I finally got through the new bank stuff that had been coming in the mail. Got the new debit cards activated and most of the auto pay accounts switched to withdraw from the new account. Still waiting on the loan piece, but I know the last needed info was given to the underwriter this afternoon.

Tomorrow morning I'm getting Isaac up early to get to the dump about 8. I have a webinar at 10 on Special Ed and the school year. Isaac is supposed to spend time with Patrick which allows me alone time at home. He then goes with Meg at 5:30-8 for therapy and youth group. I have another client plan to finish writing and laundry to tackle. Should be a nice day.

    Glad that it went well at the doctors. Have to be proactive on health issues to take care of yourself. Hope the days goes good.

    Seems like a mostly positive report!

    Have you looked into the Dash Plan? I am getting some results with the 1600 calories/2300 grams of salt Dash Plan. My main issue has been that I overeat. Now I use a pencil and paper Dash tracker most days to keep me from overeating and I have found the importance of planning ahead. I'm allowed three sweets per week so it becomes delayed gratification if I know I'll be wanting a thin slice of birthday cake at the party, a doughnut hole at the homeschooling brunch, or maple syrup with my menu planned waffle. If I go ahead and eat the Oreo on impulse because the kids open up the package that my husband brought home from the store, then I have to decide which of the three planned treats I will skip. Most weeks I choose two small pieces of candy (a toasted marshmallow and 1/4 bar of milk chocolate when we have a cookout) and jam on toast. Of course it helps to get up and move, too, but if you are anything like me overeating always trumps lack of exercise.

    Sounds like the doc wasn't too bad. Really nice to get that script for massage.
