Errands and legs...done
We went to the mammogram center and got done there relatively quick. I'll admit I'm a little concerned that the technician asked after the first scan if I was wearing deodorant and when I told her no she said okay. I'm hoping it was just because she always asks that and forgot to ask before the scan and not that she saw calcification. My mom had that a few years ago and had to do a biopsy that was rather unpleasant. They said I'll have results within the week. I sprung for the 3D version and am going to cross my fingers that insurance will pick up the extra $75 because if Medicare can cover that, then ours shouldn't have a problem. So send out good vibes y'all! I won't be able to exhale until I get an all clear.
Since when did *everyone* have MLK day off?? Good Lord man, it was worse than a weekend! Then we had some errands to run, we even put off a Trader Joe's stop from the weekend to Monday and it was chaos. It was like every person who chooses not to parent their cherubs was out in full force. I shot the Mr a look when I was surrounded by this horrific family that let him know bail money would be needed in about 10 seconds if they didn't vacate the personal space they were invading. Pretty much everywhere we went was like that other than the sporting goods store where we picked up some extra weights. Since the Mr injured his shoulder months ago, we've kind of been fighting over the 15 and 20 lb weights and we needed to get duplicates of those two since our Fitness Blender workouts are very strength training oriented. Last night was no exception. It was upper body strength, one that we have done many times, but then it was followed by a 24 minute cardio routine after that for a total of 75 minutes working out. I was so spent and needed to up my calories after seeing my burn so I checked with the Mr to see if he had room to finagle and he did.
Finally finished the last of the meatloaf, some mashed sweet potatoes and green beans. I forced down 3 bottles of water so I'm happy about that. Sodium was higher than I'd like but that's why I forced down the extra bottle and it's in check the rest of the meals this week so it should all even out.
If I can walk today, I'd like to start working on the living room. If I can't, I'll be in traction.
Did you get MLK day off? If so, what did you do?
