I only got <4 hours sleep, woke before 2:00. Bummer. But I was sort of excited to discover my naked weight was just at 150#, so that’s a good thing. Then my lower tract started acting up, had to take four trips to the toilet (so far) and I’m at 148# now. What the hell? I mean, I’m glad I’m no longer stopped up like I was for a long while after surgery, and for many weeks I’ve been pretty much “regular” and so forth. Apparently today I get to sit around waiting for the next quickstep trip to the bathroom. Seriously, what a pain in the ass, eh?
I found this on Facebook:
Yeah, that seems to sum it up, eh?
It was early fall when I started really going downhill, so about 8-9 months ago. It’s been a helluva ride so far, and I am very grateful that I seem to be generally on the mend, but there are so many things I still don’t understand about my body. Like, how can I do certain things one day and get great numbers, but then do the same things another day and my numbers are all fucked up?
11:00a.m. – managed to get another hour and a half or so nap, slept right through the boys’ feeding time, listening to some classical music. They were apparently none too amused when I put their food out around 8:30, but there was still food in their bowl from last night so they weren’t starving.
I just took a walk up to Manor. My hips were already burning before I got that far, so I didn’t push it up to Longview. It will be triple digit heat index this afternoon, so I’m keeping the blinds and curtains closed and the a/c on. But at least I got some fresh air, sunshine, and exercise, right? I will be sooo glad when I am able to walk to Kroger and back, but I sense that is still a couple months away, since that is a good hour or hour-and-a-half walking. I can dye some, but it’s here at home and I can just sit and rest as needed. Even with the walker, while I can rest with it, I don’t want to be sitting on the side of the road for long periods — too hot and too vulnerable, no real sidewalks and people aren’t always kind.
Got the kitchen mopped yesterday, and this morning I washed all the dye-mop towels, so in the morning when I’m fresh I can start the dyeing that I have set out to be done.
But now, I’m sweaty from the walk, and need to do some research on some foods. I definitely believe that food intake plays a large role in how my body functions, but I need to get a better understanding of which foods combine for best results. No normal foods are off-limits, really, but I have to balance the fats and carbs and proteins.
