Shrugging it off
Sunday, May 06, 2012
It's been a rough couple of weeks. It started with my physical a couple of weeks ago. I found out that I shrunk a half inch...grrr! Then had to start a cholesterol pill because it's elevated. That was deflating! 4 months of sparking and now I need to take a statin? I can only imagine how high my cholesterol was before I started sparking! Yikes!
Then I had an abnormal pap smear...so I had to have a biopsy, and I'm still waiting for that result. I'm thinking positive...I just DON'T have time for cancer! Next was an abnormal mammogram...which bought me a ticket for some further diagnostic testing. At least the answer was negative and all is well with the girls! Yay!
Finally, I had a bladder infection...so off to urgent care I went for urine culture and antibiotics. Sheesh!
To top it off, I was on call last weekend and wound up staying up for close to 36 hours. I do NOT do well when I'm tired! So imagine feeling extremely tired, working 40 hours AND dealing with health issues! Yowza! Exercise didn't happen...nor did tracking. Although, I will say I was very cognizant of what I was eating...so nothing out of control there.
Yesterday, DH and I played in a golf tournament. It was a great format, playing best ball with each stroke. I love best ball! It takes the pressure off your game and you can just enjoy it. We were paired with another couple who were SO much fun! Even the spring shower in the middle of the game didn't dampen our spirits!
So I'm taking that enjoyable day and am going forward with it this week. My mental shrug! I'll be pounding my treadmill, pedaling my stationary and burning up the computer keys with all the tracking I'll be doing! Plus...I'm looking forward to a super weekend getaway Mothers day! DH and I will be staying at a beach house with 7 other couples! Can't wait!
I hope you're able to focus on something positive this week too! Thank you all for the encouraging words on this journey we're taking! Spark on!
