Good morning... how's everyone doing this morning? I can't believe March is almost over; "in like a lion, out like a lamb" - at least, I hope that's the working for you... Of course, it's still dark outside, but I think it's going to be a pretty nice day here...
This has been a pretty quiet week in my world. Friday was the last of of the procedures on my legs - now I'm just in for the healing process. The 3 that have already been done are doing okay, although they're still pretty sore. It looks like we've accomplished what we set out to do, though, since the swelling is almost gone - well, I do still have to be careful as my body does still retain fluid; it just doesn't pool in my feet/ankles like it did previously. The horrible muscle cramps are pretty much gone, as is my restless leg syndrome. The drawbacks are that I have some tingling feelings in my legs where the shots were given, but I'm hoping those will go away with time, although they kind of match the neuropathy in my feet, so I have to wonder about that.
Anyway, because of the procedures, I haven't been doing a whole lot of physical activity - well, I've been doing some; just not as intensely as usual. I did finally get worked up to the normal walking route (about 2 miles) that I do with my neighbor, just prior to this last procedure, but now we'll have to cut it back to a shorter route for a few days as my doctor says 2 miles is too much to begin with. I've also been spending more time sitting at the computer, working on an online course to get CEUs to renew my license for operation of water facilities, in case I would decide I might want to use it - lots of chemistry and math kept my brain busy, if not my body. I finished the course, yesterday, so I won't need to spend as much time at the computer again for a while.
Surprisingly, my weight stayed the same this week. Because I didn't do anything yesterday or the day before, I'd expected to go up, at least, a couple of tenths in weight, but I didn't. I'd like to think that's a good sign, so I'll see how things go over the next couple of weeks. Even though we've read that exercise isn't a big contributor to weight loss, I do find that the less exercise I get, the less/slower I lose no matter how well I eat. I'm also finding that first thing in the morning is not longer the best time for me to weigh, as my weight has been going down later in the morning, compared to what it is when I first get up. Anyway, I'm happy with not gaining this week.
So how about you? I hope you had a good week.
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~
