My Test Results/My Saturday
Saturday, October 01, 2011
Sorry if anyone was sitting there concerned about me, I know I should've posted sooner, but I have been exhausted all this week. I've been having to wake up early to teach school, my job has picked up a lot for the season, plus DH and I had our 8-yr anniversary this week.
So I went to the doctor on Monday and she said we will take the "wait-and-see" approach. I do have a 2.8 cm enlarged lymph node in my neck, but the blood tests indicated infection more than anything else. She thinks this is all due to the sinus infection I had not long prior to those tests. I go back at the end of December for follow-up.
On another note, I have been eating mostly "clean" with a few goof-ups for the last almost 3 weeks. I lost 10 lbs the first 2 weeks. I am constantly working on my sugar addiction, it's a daily battle. However, I noticed that I only crave sweets when I give in and eat something sweet. The longer I'm "clean", the less I crave. DH took me to a Thai & Vegetarian restaurant last night for a belated anniversary dinner and I was craving sweets. I exercised immense self-control and stuck to the veggie menu. We shared a "fresh veg. spring roll" app. (1 roll each) It was steamed instead of fried, and for my entree I had a delicious vegetarian vegetable & tofu in coconut milk dish. I was only able to eat about half of it, because I stopped eating when I was satisfied (yay me!) and brought the leftovers home.
Today, a friend and I are going to enjoy the autumn weather and go for a nice long walk. My goal is about 2 miles.
