Good morning. How is everyone doing this week. I hope you're doing well. I suppose most people are getting into Holiday mode, if you haven't already been. It takes me a while to get into the spirit, but I'm planning to put up the Christmas tree today - maybe that will help!!
It's been a strange week for me, including car issues, etc. What I thought was a need for a key fob battery, turned out to be a need for an engine battery, which certainly wasn't cheap. Unfortunately, husband wasn't home at the time - if he had been, he'd have simply driven down to Discount Auto, gotten a battery and replaced it. I can't do that, so it was necessary to have it installed. Anyway, it's fixed.
My neighbor, with whom I walk most days, left on Friday to go back to Oregon, so I probably won't be doing to a lot of walking. Aside from that, I have an appointment for an MRI to check out a growth (lump) on the top of my right foot. My doctor seems to think it's something that's going to have to be removed. The MRI is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon, so I should know which direction I'll have to go later this week.
I also have an appointment with a hand specialist for carpal tunnel on the 23rd. My pcp also seems to think I'm going to need surgery on both hands so we'll see how that works out.
Anyway, with husband gone last week, I thought I'd do pretty good with my eating as I usually eat more healthfully, when he isn't home. Not this time. I don't eat fish when he's here (he can't stand the smell), so the first couple of days I at tuna salad sandwiches, etc. I love tuna salad and couldn't seem to get enough - of course, it's not the tuna that's bad; it's all the bread for the sandwiches. I also had spaghetti with meat sauce and other things I shouldn't be eating.
That was my lead-up to saying I'm up a couple of pounds this week from where I've been the past few weeks. I'm baking chicken today, so that will be a little better.
I'm going to have to be careful - with my neighbor gone and no walking partner, it will be easier than ever to gain more weight.
So how was your week? I hope it went well and that you were able to meet your goal(s).
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~
