And a good day. Today was the first day since the surgery that I went a day without pain medication. I do not like pain medication. I don’t like feeling in control and all the other stuff that comes with it. Yesterday I took the new medication and while it did suppress the pain, by 2 in the afternoon I was so dizzy that I had to go home for the day. The pain wasn’t so bad today and what a difference to feel more in control. I’m getting better but promise to take it easy getting back into my routine.
I miss my routine. My body misses my routine. I was feeling bad this week about how the pound piled on this week. Several reasons. No exercise, especially hurts compared to how much exercise I was doing before. Metabolism slowed way down. And then I ate quite a bit more. The one thing about the medication is that it dulled the pain but it was still there. In the evening I would not take any medicine because I can’t go to bed with that foggy feeling but to take my mind of the pain, I would eat. Nothing like I used to, but more than I’m used to. Another big reason that I just found out about today was that both medications I have been taking can cause constipation. And boy, did the cucumber I had at work this morning take care of that. This morning when I weighed myself I had gained 9 lbs over the week. Unbelievable. We’ll see what I weigh tomorrow morning after today’s cleansing but I’m debating whether to include this weight in my charts. I know I’ll lose it in no time, there’s just something holding me back from documenting it. Thoughts?
