Well it was back to work with a vengence today, the world and his wife wanted an appointment to see the doctor. It is a wonder the phone lines didn't burn out!!!
We have had two big shocks in the practice over the past week, one of our partners announce he was retiring at the end of March, the end of an era. Today one of our salaried doctors announce she will be leaving at the same time. There are going to be many changes this year, including myself going part-time.
Stress levels will be on the move....
It is still bitterly cold here, so of course the mind and body is looking for comfort food. Today I made a pledge to go the week without eating between meals, it is very difficultas there are many Christmas treats still around at work and a few here at home. So far I am doing well, making sure my meals are filling and nutritious, porridge this morning and scotch broth with a wholemeal roll for lunch. I am having a baked potoato for tea but not sure what what to put with it, probably beans. So it will have been a high fibre day.
I am feeling very positive about my eating at the moment, I just need to get the exercise going. I took delivery of a new pedometer today. So from tomorrow I will be measuring my steps again. There is a plan to climb Ben Nevis sometime in May with some very special friends. I need to get the all clear from my doctor before we make final plans. I don't want to be letting anyone down, especially myself. I am going to ask for an xray and/or an MRI scan on my back. I have really suffered over the holiday due to the two long distance trips we have done. I am great when standing and walking, but if I sit for too long I am well and truly scuppered.
I received some lovely bodycare gifts for Christmas, so today I am pampering my hands and feet.
I began a diary on New Years Day, I have never carried on beyond a week, but I am determined this time.
I have found a book to make into my Healthy Me Journal.
I have promised myself to do a small declutter every night. Ten Items to go each night.
This is me Feeling Good..Oh it feels Great :o)
