Wow what a great loss, well done, you must look like a different person to those who haven’t seen you since lockdown, you do look incredible, absolutely amazing, you made me laugh with your squats and lunges, it does get better but if it’s not your thing that’s fair enough, swimming is really good for the whole body, I’m so happy I’ve booked my first 6 gym sessions, oh my days I never ever thought I’d be feeling pleased about going to the gym!Ok, so the scales moved this week -4 lbs, so yay!
At the church we have a 'rogues' gallery' with pictures of the staff and important people. My picture was taken about a month before my surgery and I look at it now and almost don't recognize myself. It's funny because back then I didn't think I had a really fat face, guess I was wrong! lol I really need to get it changed now.
@Sarnie I can't even get to see a doc for a med review. Hell, they seem to be actively keeping people away even though my letter from Luton clearly said they wanted me to see a GP. My GP surgery is useless, but most around here seem to be. Guess I'll find out in October if there's a problem. I'm thinking of weaning myself off my BP meds and see how it goes. If it creeps up, I'll go on them again.
I tried doing a beginner's cross training session the other day. Oh my sweet goodness! My legs are still in agony two days later! Squats and lunges are from Satan himself! I'm still waiting to hear when the pool I use will be opening. It looks like it will be in August and you have to pre-book, which is fair enough. The pool I use is pretty tiny, just 3/4 lanes wide and only 16 metres long, so they won't be able to fit too many in. I suspect there won't be a huge rush to get back as most who use that pool are over 70 and a lot are still sticking close to home.
We had a communion service on Wednesday and clearly most everyone who turned up thought that me and the office is exempt from social distancing. The number of them traipsing through... I was actually quite upset by it. Next week I'll have to get there earlier and make sure to put up my door bar thingy to keep them out. It also is getting tiresome hearing how I'm disappearing or wasting away, but I guess I half expected that because a lot of them haven't seen me since before lockdown, so my weight loss over that time is more obvious to them.
Overall, though, I feel tired and have been struggling a bit. I've been more prone to tears than I ever have been in my entire life, which is kind of annoying to be honest. My husband is depressed, which isn't great, but we've been here before. In times like these I think of the words of Julian of Norwich, "...but all shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well."
i hope hubby feels brighter soon, depression is a terrible illness, and you too, maybe the weight loss has affected your hormones which in turn has made you more emotiona. and as for people not social distancing well what can I say, they seem to have no idea of the consequence of not doing it, I wouldn’t mind if it was only themselves they were putting at risk but it’s not it’s everyone else Grrrrrrrr.
without going into too much detail we had a patient today who was getting really angry, shouting and refusing to wear a face covering, I should say that 99.9% of our patients are lovely people who become friends over time, anyway he said he wouldn’t stay if he had to wear one, I know what I would have said if I was in charge.....see ya later, bye bye ! Anyway I’m not in charge so it wasn’t my call I did however point out to him that this was a government ruling not a hospital ruling xxxx
