Good morning. How is everyone doing today? I hope you're having a good day, so far.
My week has been pretty busy, but also quiet. I'm pretty much done with doctor's appointments for the time being. My hand/arm is doing very well from the carpal/cubital tunnel surgeries. The incisions remain quite tender, but don't keep me from doing what I want. My eyes are doing great from the laser surgery and driving at night is no longer a scary thought.
So - that means I feel pretty well, for the most part, though I'm still dealing with severe tiredness/fatigue. I did have a couple of blood tests that came back with low RBC, which the NP at my doctor's office says is not an issue because it's not low enough. I tend to disagree with that. They have reference ranges for a reason and results outside the ranges, warrant further investigation. Since I can't get a lot of blood work on my own, I decided to buy some iron and see if that will make a difference. I just got it and it will take time for it to "kick in".
The heat has been oppressive and we're still getting heat indexes in the area of 115°. Just too hot (and dangerous) to do anything outside. That leaves me inside working on calligraphy practice and projects, which does not entail physical activity. Of course, house work counts, but that's minimal these days.
Another thing I've considered is that lack of activity can also cause tiredness, so I have to come up with a plan to get moving and stick to it. Of course, when my winter neighbor comes back, we'll start walking every day again, but I need to be in better shape before she gets here or I'll never keep up.
So - my weight has fluctuated, as usual this week - up a pound, down a pound, up 2 pounds, down 1 pound... you get the idea. I weighed yesterday and was exactly the same as last week. This morning when I stepped on the scale it was up by 2 pounds. I did not eat 7000 calories overnight, so we know it has to be fluid. I did eat some cheese curls yesterday, so that would have contributed.
Anyway, this week, I will be adding "some" type of exercise, while I wait for it to cool off enough to get out and walk, work in my shop, etc.
That's my story - how did you do this week? New exercises? Diet? I hope you were able to meet/exceed your goal(s).
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~
