Emotional Blackmail

Woke up at 4am with a headache! BASTARD! Hate that. You just can’t get restful sleep with a headache. I have minimal responsibilities today so I guess it will be a good day for it. I wonder if we had a weather change in the middle of the night. definitely feels like a barometric headache. two cups of coffee, and some extra morning drugs will take care of the pain.

Speaking of pain, went back to my standard workout at the gym last night. DUDE I am so weak! But, it’s time to start back in. I survived. I am going to have to learn to workout with shoes on I think. The neuropathy in my feet is really bad and I noticed it affecting in weird ways last night. One the mats I use my big toes for grip, hey guess where the biggest numb patches are? Bummer because working out barefoot is so nice for me.

When I workout at night I leave for the gym at 6:30. I workout from 7pm to 8pm, home by 8:30. With this kind o workout you absolutely cannot have a full stomach so I am very careful about when and what I eat for lunch, and I do not eat dinner before I workout. When I come home I have dinner, then I have an hour or so and I go to bed. I have noticed in my two months of no regular workout schedule that I eat from 6pm to 9pm. The whole damn three hours!  It will be good to get back to a better eating schedule. Bad Habits. I do need to make the switch to 4:00 workouts, but I need to stay healthy long enough to get my muscles back first, and I really need to get my lungs functioning better first. CT Scan in two weeks so we’ll see where we stand!

One year ago today my husband came and looked at our condo for the first time. Hard to believe it’s been a year. I should really unpack those boxes in the garage. I need a set of shelves. I have a small amount of things that are not useful, purely emotional or decorative, but I have no place to put them. I either need to just get rid of them all, or buy something to hold them.

Going out for dinner tonight with my sister and cousin, that will be nice. Also going out of town for a couple of days with my daughter  in two weeks. Definitely looking forward to that.




The title has nothing to do with the blog. 🙂

  1. So where you grip those toes on the mat is where you have more numbness? Weird! You have those weird little grippy toe shoes don’t you?

    And emotional blackmail? 😳

    Hope your dinner is good and you learn a lot!

    1. The flat part of my big toes are mostly numb now with burning around the edges. I have a few spots on balls of my feet as well. Haha, I do have those shoes but they don’t fit correctly so I wear nice cross training shoes.

Don’t leave without saying something!
