Ooops – I seem to have missed yesterday.

Standard

I am doing quite well with my diet at the moment – if I have a snack between meals it is rice cakes or fruit, and I am eating pretty healthy meals too (apart from Monday, when I threw in the towel, and we had sausages and oven chips – which could have been worse, I suppose).  I have got another fasting blood test tomorrow morning, so will need to starve from about 7pm tonight.  It will be interesting to see what that shows, and then, I guess, we will decide what to do – treat with drugs or just diet.

I did talk to N about the possibility of signing up for a gym again.  The local authority has a brand new sports centre, with pool and gym that has opened up about 10 minutes drive away – and I feel that that is probably close enough that I could motivate myself and get there regularly, so I am going to look up how much it costs.  No3 son has membership there – it was his choice of birthday present this year – so taking him there would give me an extra push to go.  Exercise would be very useful for me, because it reduces insulin resistance (or something like that – I can’t remember properly right now).

Reducing my citalopram dosage seems to be going well so far.  I am comfortable on 20mg, and contemplating going down to 10mg in a week or two.  I am actually seeing a light at the end of the tunnel (and I don’t think it is a train).  I might actually be off the tablets altogether within the next couple of months!!  Yay me!

I’m meeting up with a friend on Friday – we both have similar issues, and hopefully we can give eachother some support – as well as having a good, long blether and catch-up, of course!  We are meeting at a lovely cafe and garden centre, and I might treat myself to a plant or two whilst I am there.  Maybe, just maybe, No1 dog is now old enough and sensible enough that I can plant things in the back garden without her immediately digging them up and towing them round by the stem until they are dead.
