Fill number three...or not

Well I went for my fill appointment today and because of everything going on in my life we decided to put it off for another 2 weeks.

My office is being relocated into another department, and the entire move etc was only announced a few weeks before Xmas, and I managed to ignore it over the break but now we are back and it is becoming a hard reality, unfortunately we have a few staff members from a really tight team who arent coming with us, but I seem to have a list of things to do that never ends, in fact my desk space looks pretty much like this

On Tuesday's appointment I had a session and weigh in with the dietician, and a session with their physiotherapist. Both are really helpful and the physio gave me a lot of pointers with my damaged knee and back and also to ensure toning!

But to top this morning off, I had lost another 800 grams (1.7 lb), since Tuesday! So unless I am getting really hungry, a fill is probably not worth it, as I got stuck again on Wednesday night. Apparently corn is no longer on my favourites list! I think stress is making the band much tighter, not to mention it is my TOM as well.

.....Soooo about lunchtime today, I thought I would top my day off with a visit to the Dr for a few things, because that's always fun right?

I got a little something for constipation - yes I AM drinking lots of water but as it is mid summer it just doesnt seem enough.

But the good news....

She has lowered my blood pressure dosage! When she checked it it was 120/84, and that was her third try, apprently she had great problems hearing it properly. So I now take 10mg in the morning and 5 mg at night instead of 10 at both. We will check it agian in three months.

Hi there - yes it was me at the surgery this morning! Small world. I had wondered if you were at the same surgery as me. I did see someone on the couch now that you say. I agree, the mags are great there - must be the only waiting room that keeps their mags up to date. Thanks for all you kind words. Yay about not needing a fill yet :) For the constipation, I got recommended Alpine tea by the dietician - works a treat! Get it at the supermarket (red seal brand I think) Great about the blood pressure too - awesome progress :)

I hate moving office, and I'm sorry that your whole team is moving with you, that must be tough!
Congrats on the reduced meds though :o)

Hey Mo! Thanks for dropping by my blog. Just wondering if you have had your knee looked at? My hubby had something similar and turned out that he got referred to a physical therapist who provided him with some exercises to do. Keep up the good work!
