Wow. Just wow. Monday. 😕

Started good. I woke up with no caffeine or soda and was fine. I went to the podiatrist at 9am. I knew I was going to have shots today. The woman told me that it was a small needle and didn’t hurt. I can now say that was BS! LONG needles into my leg and the shot lasted a full minute as he put the medicine in slowly. It hurt SO bad! Then after the electrode treatment, my toes went numb for a long time. She said it could happen but it was normal. Uh huh, like I’m going to believe anything now?

Still fine with no soda or caffeine when that was over. So I went to the gym when I got home. I rode the bike for 30 minutes on the variety button again and then walked the treadmill for 30 minutes. I felt like I wanted to get the toxins out of my system and I did feel good after I got my cardio in. My toes stayed numb while I worked out but felt better after too which was a nice benefit!

Then the headache. After the gym, I had lunch of a meatball mixed with veggies, pecans, and some Colby jack cheese. I promptly fell asleep but I knew I was tired when I laid down to rest so I had set an alarm for 1:20pm, I can’t miss work! When I woke up at 1:18 (woo hoo – 2 minutes before the alarm went off) my head was pounding! I left to take the couple to the doctor and took 4 Advil on my way there. My head stayed pounding until around 8pm and it only went away because I stopped at Starbucks and got a blonde Americano coffee. I’m not thrilled with the taste but what can I do? I got home from work at 6:30 and walked Amber even though my son said he had walked her. She was whining when I walked in like she hadn’t been out all day. I put a tablespoon of heavy whipping cream into the coffee and it tasted a bit better so I finished it. I guess I am going to try a bunch of their different coffee choices and find out what I like. I’m not a fan of this! 😂 Any suggestions on what to try for a person that has never really drunken coffee before?

That was my long day. How was yours?

Today I was supposed to take the couple to a doctors appointment and dinner but the husband is sick so we canceled it all. He needs to get better. He has bronchitis and is now on a bunch of medicines and needs to rest. Not that he will listen but he needs to! So now I have no jobs today. I think after I take my son to school here in a bit, I will go do the weight machines at the gym. I haven’t been using theirs, just dumbbells for a while now. I want to try those again. I will definitely keep the weight low too so I don’t hurt myself again! Then I need to find something to do because when I don’t have anything to do, I am going to want to have some sugar or carbs and that’s a definite nono from now on! I just hope I don’t fall asleep again like yesterday. I know that’s a downfall of quitting soda as well.

I hope you have a great day. What plans do you have today?

  1. There is a scene in the excellent Charlie Chan at Treasure Island (dir. Norman Foster, 1939) where Charlie (Sidney Toler) tests a psychic named Eve Cairo (played by the stunning Pauline Moore). He pulls out a small white card on which something is written in Chinese and hands it to her control, The Great Rhadini (a devilishly-handsome Cesar Romero).Rhadini grins at Charlie, then says “What have I in my hand?” Unable to translate the Chinese words, Charlie thinks the translation in his own mind. Much to his surprise, Eve says, “The Chinese characters mean ‘Great Happiness Follows Great Pain.’ ”

    Those words are still true nearly 80 years later…great happiness follows great pain, no matter long the needles. 🙂

  2. ” I am going to want to have some sugar or carbs and that’s a definite nono from now on! I” NEVER having these things AGAIN sounds like a recipe for failure, you sure you won’t just have them in healthy moderation…

    1. I watched this video that says it better: “I choose not to have these things today”.
      Now I just have to tell that to myself every day. The reason I say never again is because the doctor said it. It’s sad but it’s my new life.


  3. Doctors always lie when they say it won’t hurt! I hope all this treatment and numbness is worth it in the end!!!
    You could try ordering the “Iced Chai Tea Latte” from Starbucks it’s sooo yummy! You can also ask for an extra shot of espresso and still not taste the bitterness.
