It’s a bit overcast today but still mild for the time of year. The meters have been read and we are up on our electricity (2 wash loads yesterday plus two since the last readings and I’ve also used the oven twice this week), down on our gas, and our water is the same.
Still, everything is where it should be in comparison to last year so we are doing well.
Hubby gave me some pointers on the block editor yesterday (this post is in Classic) so I think I’d be able to bumble along if I had to. It never hurts to have a ‘dry run’ once in a while. What is most confusing is having to bounce through several screens to find anything whereas in Classic everything is immediately to hand on one.
No plans today, but I’m waiting for a phone call from the doctor about a lump on my toe. It sounds daft to be concerned, but being diabetic, I have to look after my feet. My late uncle was diabetic and had a small stone in his shoe which he didn’t stop to remove. He had a nasty place on his foot which festered, ulcerated, and he ended up losing it. It’s not painful and not due to something in my shoe or my sock but I’m not taking any chances. Although I was on hold for a while, the receptionist arranged a call back for today. She confirmed my blood test for tomorrow and my diabetes check up is the 18th. I am so glad we changed surgeries.
Midweek, and the diet has turned on me. I have listed everything and synned where necessary, not going outside of my allowances and the scales are going in the wrong direction. I don’t understand and wondering if it’s a case of not eating enough, or maybe not the right things. I would love to wrap my face round a jam doughnut or box of chocolates to console myself. I’m cooking fish today with veg so hopefully that will bulk me up. I’m well hydrated so that’s not a problem. We’ll see.
I am glad you are taking good care of yourself. Diabetics can’t take risks with extremities, especially their feet.
I know. Although I;m borderline type two, I am still aware of things to be cautious about, and feet is one of them. Apparently I have good circulation, but I confess a couple of times recently my feet have been like blocks of ice. Can’t hurt to talk about it to the doc.
Won’t hurt at all.
Good idea to consult a doctor.
I think it prudent.
Have a good day
You too Alice
Weight fluctuates and sometimes it takes a few days until something naughty you ate catches up with you. It may be just normal fluctuation. Good luck with your foot. BTW I posted today and had another struggle finding classic. Eventually I did sort of. Could not find categories and it took a while to find tags. Sigh.
I had the same problem with my tester post yesterday and with Hubby’s help found the tags and categories under the ‘post’ option top RH side . Why do we have to go through umpteen screens when in classic one does all!!!! Hopefully Classic is going to be with us for a while yet.
The weight is an enigma as I have not cheated all week, so I should be constant at least. There is usually a variance though so I’m not going to worry too much as I am still within my allowed target parameters. Sunday is the day that counts as that’s when I text in.
Sounds like you are in tune with your body. My father was diabetic and had lots of foot issues (but he was insulin dependent)… I hope the toe lump is nothing to worry about and all the tests come out satisfactory. As for the scales – I had some soup that was a little too salty and packed on a couple pounds in water weight. It went away after a couple days….
I’m seeing the doc tomorrow when I have my blood test. Luckily my diabetes is diet controlled.
The weight is a nuisance, but I’m trying hard not to give in to temptation. Typically, today I’m hungry 😦
