Doctor's appt. yesterday was good ... thyroid is still a little weird, higher readings where it would be more like I was on overdrive and low on the other parts. I did talk to him at length about what I've been learning in regards to my lack of a gall bladder, and liver stress and not digesting foods .... and he was quite surprised that I had not been on digestive enzymes all this time. He apologized to me that he had not caught that. Granted I've only been seeing him for 2 years and I had the GB out in 99 ... he also told me that surgeons rarely bother to tell you about the fact that many GB patients have issues afterwards with digestion and struggle with weight loss, liver stress, etc.
So he started me on an enzyme that I will take 3 times a day. I took the first one yesterday with my nooner salad .... and there was definitely a difference.
Gotta run ... off for lunch with my guy
Hmm, having more reliable digestion is a good thing when one is on a date
It sounds like you have a good doc, there. They're hard to find!
Had a absolutely WONDERFUL day !
Happy Happy Happy is an understatement !!!
Lunch was great, the afternoon even better, and evening perfection .... had an early evening because he works tomorrow, and I'm working out in the morning .... grins, my son came in and asked me if I was ever going to quit smiling ..... no, I don't think so !!!
Workouts this week have been good ..... and this week, my trainer tossed me some MMA gloves, and started me with some basic sparring moves. That ROCKED ! It was a lot of fun !
He's got a friend who is a boxer/trainer who will be coming in soon and I will get to do some training with him too. Wooooohooooo !
The digestive enzymes are helping a lot, so glad that I started taking them.
My son made dinner for us last night, a lovely pan of roasted cauliflower and another of baked fish (which my little dog absolutely loved, because to me, it was awful !) LOL .... I'm just not really enthusiastic about fish. Crab, that I love, love, love ... but fish is just not among my happy foods.
Meals today ... breakfast BAS
lunch is debatable, more than likely pushing that off until late
dinner ... depends on if my man is here tonight ... if he is, I may have him cooking up some chorizo and eggs. grins .....
Ok, workouts for the past two weeks have been strained .... well, actually I have been strained and in pain for the past two weeks. Two weeks ago I had a major muscle cramp/charley horse/oh my fracking lard horrible pain in my leg ... pulled first in the calf, then into the quad .... I was able to partially stand up and got as far as the spinner bike (all of 3 feet away) and had to hold on to that to keep from ending up in the floor .... couldn't stand straight up at all, and the pain was so intense, I had sweat literally pouring off me.
My son was here thankfully and got my Stop Pain Spray - and some extra calcium and magnesium tabs .... and finally after 15 minutes or so of excruciating pain, it eased up.
I realized that while I was out that day, I had forgotten to take my mini bottles of liquid minerals and although I was staying hydrated, I had only had one glass with the minerals in it. Needless to say that shit won't happen again !
However, I was so sore and the muscles were so tight, it pulled the muscles all the way into my ankle and my foot ... walking has been like stepping down on a railroad spike. Saw my Chiro on Tuesday and he adjusted the ankle, then spent some time working on the calf muscles and making me cry. OMG ... I had no idea they were so fracking tight. But it loosened up the calf and in turn, my foot pain is easing up finally. I've been alternating with PoSumOn (a Chinese oil that I used to use a lot when I was doing massage) and a muscle balm rub that I make (Native herbs, etc.) and today I am walking with minimal pain ... finally.
I am also using the roller on my calves at night and keeping up with the minerals, and no cramps now for two weeks.
Todays meals ..... BACON .... and more bacon .... ok, I did have a salad with some hemp seeds and radishes, and 6 big-azz eggs, and also more bacon. It was a lovely just roll me up in yummy nitrate free bacon day .... damnit ... there's no bacon for tomorrow. So ... workout in the morning, then go to the store and BUY MORE BACON !!!
