More feet trouble, and a power outage
Monday, August 10, 2020      3 comments

The day before yesterday I limped around the grocery store because both of my feet started hurting, and I still don't know why. My left ankle is still swollen and although I can walk on it some, I can't walk on it too long without it hurting. So... Read more
Well now somehow I've slightly hurt my ankle

I don't know how, I was just sitting in the car yesterday with my left leg over my right knee and it started to hurt a little, and when I touched it, it was sore and swollen. I can walk on it with no problem but it does hurt a little bit. It's... Read more

Yesterday I didn't eat enough for all the walking and dancing I was doing, and my body let me know quickly. Feel too tired and a little hopeless for no reason and maybe a little bit like a cold is coming on when I've been eating less? Sure sign... Read more

I didn't step on the scale, I ate like I planned, I pulled out the hand weights and loop bands, briefly but I did start with them, got thirty minutes of cardio and 10,000 steps, and got about 60% of the things I planned on doing yesterday done. ... Read more

I've had them for about a month and it's time to use them. I've been good at not stepping on the scale the last few days, so it's time to start another goal. It's now two months since I checked in to the hospital, and several weeks since I chec... Read more

The good news is that I had a small, deluxe cheeseburger for breakfast and not only was it absolutely delicious it filled me up until I still feel very full, an hour after eating. I wasn't planning on eating a cheeseburger for breakfast, but I u... Read more

I want to stop stepping on the scale every day, because I don't want to get completely caught up in losing weight instead of getting healthier and stronger. I know weighing every day makes some people feel more accountable, but I don't think th... Read more

Yesterday I was wondering how to get some exercise in when I decided to go with an old standby and put some music on and dance. I got 26 whole exercise minutes and I almost cried with happiness because I didn't think could do that. I had to tak... Read more

I got up and did my normal morning stuff yesterday and I finally got around to walking at a little after ten. I was doing pretty well until the cool down part of the walk, at which point I tripped over my own feet and fell in the road. I bloodi... Read more

I started out depressed because of my health, but it ended up being the kind of day where I got things done and even though I was surprisingly sleepy, I made gumbo from scratch for dinner and I took a leisurely walk afterwards. I booked all the... Read more
Very little good news from my last blood test

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

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

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
