Today was my first day back at the gym. I had to miss two days. On Thursday I had to fast and be on a all liquid diet for a procedure that I was going to have on Friday. So, I had to take my diabetes medicine and keep my numbers from going too low while I consumed only liquids, popsicles, jello, and chicken broth. This was my first time having to do this, and I am surprised that it went so well. I took this day off from work and did not go to the gym or anywhere else because I did not want to run the risk of causing my numbers to bottom out. On Friday, I had my procedure. It was my first ever colonoscopy, which is something that I said that I would never have. The procedure itself was not too bad. It was the awful bitter prep stuff that I had to drink the night before that was the worse part. However, the doctor told me that I could not do any exercise or anything else strenuous for 24 hours following the colonoscopy. The good new is that everything was fine, and I don't have to go through this again for five years.
Why is it that all of the preventive exams that are suppose to be so good for protecting your health make you feel soooo violated. Geez, the doc could of at least bought me dinner first...lol
