Didn't sleep very well last night because of my cataract surgery this morning. I know it's the easiest surgery to have, but I am uncomfortable thinking of having my eye cut despite knowing that it will be numbed. Such a baby I am! haha I've had so many surgeries and shouldn't be so wary. I am thankful that I won't be under a general anesthesia. They always give me reactions. After a rest at home, I will go tutor 4 kids for the first time. It's testing day so I will be reading and doing activities with those who are not being tested. I have wonderful books ready to read and will get a few crafts ready too. Second graders are delightful!
I must report about how my program is working. I'm on a very restricted diet from my chiropractor to help get rid of the inflammation in my body. Arthritis has been my companion for the past few years causing pain and more pain. I am off of sugar, grain and legumes. It's been a challenge, but the big thing is that I feel so much better and have less pain. I am losing weight too! My exercise is good! Last night at my Pilates class someone I hadn't seen for months commented on how much weight I had lost! That is such a great boost to my program! I was so excited when I went down a pants size and clothes are fitting loser.
This morning at 5 I had planned to go to the Y and water jog and take part in my favorite water aerobics class, but I realized in the night that since I cannot drink water for 6 hours before my surgery I couldn't make it with participating in class. I drink lots of water!
Despite my challenges today, I think it's going to be another gorgeous Autumn day with lots of possibilities! Have a good one Sparkies!!
