Let's Get Physical

Today was the physical day. It was not as bad as I thought.  My weight was a little less then when I last weighed in. I was still 5'9 and 3/4s so I have not shrunk either.  My doctor was staring at my face though.  She thought one side of my face looked swollen.  Coincidentally, it is the side that I have been having my horrible headaches. She actually called a colleague and asked him what she should do. The verdict, an MRI on Thursday. Hopefully, it is nothing to worry about.  Those headaches have been brutal lately though and I hope nothing is wrong.


She was also confused about my medication for depression.  I am happy with my meds for the most part there. 


Food wise I had a good day.  I brought my breakfast and lunch to work and had a good dinner.


Stonyfield Farm Fat Free Plain Yogurt, defrosted blue berries, 1 teaspoon of honey and All Bran Bran Buds that I got as a free sample from a magazine add. 




 It looks like a purple mess and the Bran Buds sort of took all the juice but it was good.


Prior to my physical, I had a Laughing Cow Babybel Light wedge. Somehow the wax makes it taste better, in mu opinion. I was not able to eat lunch before leaving for the doctor's office and I was hungry and it did OK tiding me over.


Lunch was a turkey and pepper jack cheese with spinach and mustard in a whole wheat wrap.  I had a banana on the side. I was really hungry by the time I got back to the office.  I ate the wrap in no time.  Around 4, I had a lemon Lara bar. I love Lara bars! 


I bought a lot of different veggies yesterday when I went shopping so tonight, I took some radicchio, spinach, summer squash, zucchini, beets (loved the steamed and peeled ones from Trader Joe's that I got), tomato and a bit of goat cheese into a salad with some not so good Fat Free French like dressing. I also had a pork chop with salsa and a bit of Laughing Cow spreadable cheese.  It was a good dinner. 
























I did make it to the gym and did the StairMaster and walked on the treadmill. My head was hurting but I tried to ignore it and press on. 

I am worried about my head but I will not Google anything.

  1. Your food looks delicious today. You did great going to the gym too, considering how your head hurt. I hope the MRI helps your diagnosis!

  2. I hope that the MRI shows nothing! And I hope those headaches slacken off. I'll be thinking of you.
