So, my doctor’s appointment went well today!I went to my primary care physician so, she wasn’t really able to diagnose me (without an MRI) but she did feel around and said there was no real swelling or liquid behind my knee cap. And she gave me a prescription for anti-inflams (to which I called Ben and screamed “Pills!!! I’ve got to get my Pills!!!” because he thinks making light of addictions is fun).
I also have an MRI scheduled for tomorrow morning and a Physical Therapy appointment on Thursday. I have a busy busy knee this week!
I feel so much better that I’m seeking professional help for this now. I think everything is going to be all right
Then, I picked up my prescription and hit up TJ’s for some ice cream supplies for fuel while watching LOST. I dug right into this granola. It is full of nuts and dried fruit and oil. A lot of oil. Granola is one of those deadly foods that must be portioned controlled very carefully because I can eat that whole container in one night.
So, what’s the final consensus on Lenten promises?
I am giving up sweets and cereal. I tried to give up all sugar last year and failed. I’m not going to make excuses, but I was not in a place where I was in the right mindset to do it. I did give up chocolate successfully jr. high and I’ve been good about it other years- I’m still proud of that! I have the worst sweet tooth and I know this will be a really big challenge for me, but as soon as I started thinking about Ash Wed. this year it’s the first thing that came to me. And I added cereal because I use cereal as a dessert/treat/random sweet snack and I don’t want to end up eating cereal for a treat everyday because I gave up sweets.
