Actually, there will be no spinning for me today, other than of the mental variety. I'll be leaving the house in a few minutes, and won't be home until 2:30. Then it will be a bit of lunch, a clean up and it's off to dinner and a night of comedy. Plus, I just realized that Talia is coming over tomorrow after church with her new bike so that we can ride! And my house looks like out-takes from HGTV! So somewhere in there, I've got to find some time to straighten things back up!
Spin class yesterday was interesting - and not completely in a good way. Turns out while I was on sabbatical, my life turned into The Autumn of Medical Issues. My right boob is now sort of microchipped (not really, that was just Pebbles' suggestion - along with suggesting the implantation of a gps device so that she could track me in my dotage) - it's not a microchip, but it is a titanium marker, which I've been assured will not get me felt up by the TSA. The second thing was that my cholesterol went "insane" - a direct quote from my very reserved doc. He nearly wouldn't let me leave the office without choking down some statins. So now I'm on daily meds - SAS shoes and elastic-waist, industrial-strength polyester pull-on pants can't be far behind. So anyway, while I've got to take meds every damn day (I haven't given up on getting off of these - there has to be some reason why my numbers shot through the ceiling after being consistent for years (albeit a bit high- hereditary, cause Pebbles' is the same way), I decided to add a daily vitamin. Of the senior variety.
Unfortunately, I didn't notice that those puppies are, well, the size of puppies! OMG. But I took my first one bright and early yesterday morning before going to spin class. Mis-Take. Burpy nausea to follow. So if I want to get through the COSTCO-LIFETIME-SUPPLY of these horse pills, I'm going to have to take them at night - so not only will I have meds in the morning, but now there will be meds before bedtime, which right now feels like it should be 8:30 pm!
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Age gracefully.
