Woke up another day with a headache. My sinuses felt soo dry, I had to take meds again. I hate, hate, hate meds. I kept my walking appointment with my walking friend ( wf) because I thought it might clear my head; it did. I just got back from a little over 5 mile walk and feel much better for it.
Yesterday didn't go so well. At the appointment I run into some difficulty with paperwork and to my utter shock and embarrassment went into full panic attack. Oh, wow I haven't had one of those in a long time. But trust me I really, really don't want to have one any time soon again. The administrative assistant was wonderful and we worked through the paper work.
The problem however was with the insurance itself, so I had to clear that up with a number of phone calls and dealing with being on hold and call backs all day. It is resolved, but the process was time consuming and so exhausting. I got a new appointment in April. As I don't need to see a doctor for any reason right now and this is simply for establishing a new patient contact it doesn't matter to me. The down side was I was stuck all day in the house, making phone calls and waiting for call backs. It interrupts my routine and my freedom of "movement". That is the real problem for me; I am not as quick to adapt to change any longer. It throws me off track and I rather stick my head in the sand than find a way around it.
After I take a minute to feel sorry for myself I usually can back track and pick up where I need to go. But I need that minute. I noticed yesterday, too that when someone tells me something it takes me a lot longer to comprehend what they want me to know, like in the paper work, so I ask for clarification. But when they say it again in another way I get it.
I posted those goals a couple of days ago; I want to add another one there...
pick two days per week low carb/no carb and 2 days meatless ( but still can have fish and eggs) Let's see what that does to my health. I want to have one fasting day a week down the line, but not yet. I don't think I can too many changes in one go.
...and for the record I missed my workout yesterday and did poorly on fruit and vegetables. On a positive note: I lost 2 more of those pounds I had gained last month and am nearly back to my lowest weight.
