On the proud of myself list, yesterday I hit the 1,000,000 step mark since beginning to record for the Walk This Way program at work. The program started tracking on July 6th, so that means I've recorded those million steps in a little less than 3 months.
I got up with the alarm to take my thyroid meds this morning and stayed up to walk on the treadmill before getting ready for work. Part of this is because I made yesterday a "rest" day, so I was itching to get moving in a measurable way. Nice heart rate / cardio session.
On the good news about the not so good news front: the surgeon called yesterday afternoon to say that Monday's CT scan has clearly nailed where the offending parathyroid gland is. It's an enlarged gland, rather than an adema, and it's one of the ones on the right hand side. Knowing exactly which one they are going after makes the surgery much less complicated.
On the other hand, it's getting close and I'm starting to feel a little more stressed about it. Yeah, I know, deep breaths, relax, and, in my case, the exercise really helps keep it under control.
May your week go smoothly, keeping your priorities straight and your mind, soul, and body noursished.
