Tuesday's WW's weigh in

I was dreading weighing in today.  I thought last week I had watched what went into my mouth and was surprised that I gained 3.4 pounds.  So, today I squinted when I got on the scale afraid of what I might see.  I lost 3.6 pounds.  So, actually I lost what I had gained the two weeks prior plus lost .2 pounds.  I'll take it.  That brings my total to 8.6 pounds in all.  Many many more to go.  Baby steps.

Yesterday I decided to stencil our bathroom.  I used to be so crafty all the time and hadn't done one thing since Mom passed away.  It felt nice to accomplish something again.  It was nothing intricate or even difficult, but I like how it looks.  I painted it red soon after I was diagnosed.  Bill said it just looks like rage.  LOL  I happen to like it in there, it always makes my skin look like it's glowing, and my red eyes look a little brighter. :)

Today I am sore.  I am not used to being on tippy toes on the step ladder.  And, stenciling is "pounding" with an almost dry brush on a surface... so my right arm feels like Popeye the Sailor mans'.  lol

I was so tired today.  I had so many things planned to do.  I ended up coming home from WW and going to bed for a couple hours.  I still am just exhausted, not sure why?  It could be the change in seasons.  It seems it all changed in one day.  My poor tomatoes I have left out there are shivering.  I suppose I should bring them in and hang them, but I am hoping to give them the rest of this week.
Bill bought me some more canning jars today, only a dozen pint jars.  I wanted to use some of these tomatoes, and it looks like I will have just enough to make a decent batch of Salsa and can it so we have fresh salsa all winter.  Bill uses it in his chili too.

The nurse called me this morning and asked me if I wanted to have Valium for before the procedure and pain meds for after.  I told her no, I thought I could do just fine.  It is uncomfortable but not so bad.
I think I may have changed my mind though, and will call her in the morning and ask her to call in a small prescription just in case.  I really don't like taking pain meds and do so only if I have to.  I am remembering last time and I was uncomfortable that day, at least until the following day.  Then sore for a few days after.  Just kind of ache-y.

Oh my gosh, I know it's not even 8:00, but I think I am going to call it an early night.
