celebrating 31 years of marriage to my best friend!

Wednesday, June 05, 2013

So...
I'm on an anniversary getaway with the love of my life! 31 years!
My hubby had the entire 2 days planned out... 4 movies, hotel, meals out....

Then - on the way to the city... I vomited (he counted - 5 times!). Not a fun way to start the day... I was also exhausted! (side note: I had been prescribed a new med and took one before getting sick, so I thought it was a reaction to that was the problem - called the pharmacist who said that vomiting is NOT a side effect - he'd never had anyone with that complaint with this common med. - also wondered if it had been something I ate - but nothing seemed to fit the time schedule of when I got sick). My hubby graciously gave up the schedule to let me sleep while he did some errands - which happens because we live in the middle of nowhere... it's a given that you do errands when you go to town.

So, we missed the first movie time and meal out at Golden Corral while I slept. We shifted the movies around and by evening I hadn't vomited for awhile, so we went to Chipoltes and I had tortillas and mild salsa - my tummy graciously accepted it. We saw the new Star Trek movie and I had some popcorn, but got full quickly.

Had a great night and when I woke up, my lower right leg was sore... like I ran a marathon with only my right leg... long story short... it's cellulitis - again... this will be the fourth time. However - it explains why I was sick yesterday!

Now comes our decision... ruin the rest of our plans and go back to my dr office today (1.5 hrs away), or be seen at a walk-in clinic today here in town - again - ruining our already adapted schedule. or wait until tomorrow- (my nurse friends will not be happy with this choice... )

So - called my dr office and the nurse was fine with me waiting until tomorrow to go in there...

Rest assured, we've used a pen to mark where the redness is... if it gets worse, we will go in to a walk-in clinic here in Green Bay. I don't feel sick anymore - which is a definitely GOOD thing! :)

Regarding my weight-loss journey...
- emoticon I missed signing in and tracking for a couple days...
-My food choices aren't easy to track yesterday and today
- emoticon I DID WALK A BUNCH EXTRA YESTERDAY (before I got sick - I chose to walk down the street to meet my hubby who was on his way to get me rather than sit on the bench outside the building! I was impressed with myself.. though my lower back was killing me by the time he arrived...
- emoticon yesterday -water? about 1 cup... emoticon

not a great report, BUT - I AM HERE! I DO THINK ABOUT MY CHOICES (that doesn't mean I'm making the BEST choices, though)... As I am able, I'll put extra steps into my day... I have a pedometer, but that's a topic for another day...

Have a great Wednesday, my friends! I'm enjoying myself with the love of my life, celebrating 31 years!

    Not a good report as you say, but certainly an honest one. We all get off track, but you aren't defeated unless you quit. Sorry I missed your Anniversary. but Congrats and God bless you both. Ours is 59 on the 20th of June. I hope you are relieved soon of the Celluliitis . Hubby had it and it was very painful. emoticon Jane
