Still battling nausea off and on when eating solids.
I am still on metformin. I still test my blood sugar every morning and am still testing at or near normal readings.
I am still losing weight, though more slowly than before. Those plateaus can mess with my self-confidence, but only if I let it.
Energy and stamina are still pretty good, aerobic endurance is still increasing. Still working on getting more sleep.
But my right hip is a royal pain. The good news is that I found out today from x-rays at the ortho that I don't have either arthritis or bursitis in that hip. It's being treated as a muscle/tendon strain due to overuse. I'll be getting a 'script for a topical pain reliever, a couple of weeks of physical therapy, and have been told to REST.
I am worried that this injury will derail my exercise plans, as my knee surgery did 12 years ago.
The hip pain screws with my kick in the swimming the most. So I am currently not swimming.
I love cycling! Finished the Sufferlandia spin class but have been told to rest. The weather, of course, is drop dead gorgeous.
I have been wogging on an outdoor track 2-3 times a week. I've finished 2 5Ks and am signed up for a 3rd one in May. I actually have made a full lap jogging around the track, for 3 out of 8 laps! Go me!
