I always do lots of research, Em, no matter what it's about. It was good to ask at the vets & the expense of having his teeth cleaned properly also inspired me to look after his teeth better.I don’t know anything about caring for dogs but it seems like you have it all sussed.
I have been very careful today & just took myself away from what looks like it will be a very good book- The Rose Code, by Kate Quinn, about Bletchley Park.Hope you feel good today, these aches can take your energy away. Mind yourself.
I think that would be a very sensible thing to do too. I wasn't really lifting much, but it was the twisting at the same time that hurtGlad you are being careful with your knee. It sounds like you should leave the furniture lifting to G for a while!
It sure is!The less is more thing is a nice change.
I had also read online that you should wash your hands thoroughly after hiding the pill as they will be on the lookout if they know it's there somewhere. I prepared about an hour beforehand. I wrapped some chicken around the pill & then covered that with melted cheese around it to make a small ball. Then I put it in a clean bowl with a little more cheese & a little more chicken & chilled it all. After getting back from our walk I prepared my lunch, casually put his bowl down & sat down & ate mine without even giving him a glance. I didn't go check until he had polished it off & walked away. I sti;; half expected to see it there somewhere, but was really chuffed that it was goneI like that you snuck the medicine for Arch in quickly. We have to wrap our cat in a mummy-tight blanket to get pills in her, so there isn't a possibility to sneak things in!
It started well before LaMa. It's just to the right of my right knee & is fairly constant. *sigh* My right leg sometimes just collapses. My back has been aching too. I know that my whole body is out of whack.Did the burning feeling in your right knee start before or after the ram incident? It could "just" be that your right leg was/is taking all the strain from getting up and such or it could be that favoring your left leg is throwing your back off and aggravating your nerves.
Thanks, LaMa. I hopped on the scales again this morning(they're getting less scary ) & that loss has held. I'm not missing wine at all. I do need some more breakfast options as bread makes breakfast much easier. I had Greek yoghurt again this morning with fresh mango, LSA, almond meal & 4 pistachios. We're out of eggs or I would have had an omelette.Yay for 3.5 kg down! That's a very decent chunk of weight, congratulations. Glad to hear you aren't missing the wine. That must make things easier.
I avoided the dolmades altogether yesterday. I always try to keep my protein up, but nuts are so high in calories, so I had some jerky last night when I got hungry. I find it too salty though. I was glad that I hadn't bounced up again.Good thinking to replace the dolmades with something higher in protein: at 1200 kcal/day it's so important to keep an eye on the protein.
We had a really good trip to the city thanks, M. We had a list, including finding a frame for a small painting R brought back from Peru years & years ago & the place I had my last painting framed at was still there. It was fun picking out the right frame & the right board behind it. I think I have a knack for that sort of thing. When we pick it up I will take a pic of it & the Mexican one I have in my bedroom. This one is so cute. R will be thrilled when he sees it.I hope you have a happy trip to the big city! I am amazed at how much you are doing with sore knees. I know with my mom, she had a collapsed arch on her foot and that messed up her knees. I can't wait until you get your knees checked out to see what the issue is so your knees get releif, but also as you pointed out so the rest of your body doesn't have to try to compensate and become sore and out of place.
I have always enjoyed drinking wine, but am really grateful that it hasn't become an addiction. I love how we take so much pleasure from one another's happiness. I really appreciate my WLF friendsI agree iwith LaMa about not missing wine. So wonderful you had practice giving that up so it wasn't a struggle. Love how happy and positive you are feeling, and so happy the weight loss makes you feel better!
If I forget about the photos, please remind me. I may not get the picture back before Christmas, but I hope I do.Same. Looking forward to those pictures.
Thanks, Em. It was a really good day, followed by our son, D & the 2 teenage GK's coming for dinner & staying the night. They're all still in bed now, which is why I'm on here briefly. I decorated my tree with all the wonderful decorations G's brother & his wife have bought on their O/S trips & also made for each of the great nieces & nephews over the years. I also put up fairy lights to frame the window behind it. It looked magical last night & all 3 took photos. They loved it.Good news on the haircut. Glad you enjoyed your trip away.
