Good early morning. Tomorrow shall be even earlier!
I will bring this up only once today and will discuss it here. My ankle still hurts. It feels like a deep bruise on the edge of my left foot in a 1 inch area. The good news is that a friend/physician’s assistant told me that I can take 10 mg ibuprofen/kg every 6 hours. I will be hunting down a pill cutter at work since I can have 509 mg and only have 200 mg dosage.
As I type, my virtual race bag was just e-mailed to me. I’m getting anxious!
More patients decided to play hooky with the dietitians and nurses.
At least I wasn’t rushing in this time.
I was able to do all the little tasks that I’ve been pushing off for far too long. The little things fall to the side when you have things that need to be done daily.
There has been an article sitting in my desk mailbox for…days? weeks? It was about bariatric surgery curing diabetes. To summarize the article, it is hypothesised that when food bypasses the duodenum (first section of small intestines), immediately going to the jejunum (second section of small intestines). When this happens the jejunum signals for the liver to not produce further glucose. The article noted that patient of overweight BMIs had their diabetes cured with bariatric surgery while some others with high BMIs didn’t have blood sugar improvements. It’s not quite the answer-yet.
More errands after work. It only involved a quick trip to the local produce store. Sometimes it’s best to get produce there that you’re going to be using that day since the food is brought down from Chicago.
I drove over to Aaron’s (sounds like errands but more preferred) to start on dinner while he changed my headlight. I swear my headlight bulbs are always burning out. I had a SUV for 8 years and never did one of those bulbs go out!
Dinner was so good! Good like Aaron is eyeing the last of my food and I must protect my plate.
Roasted, sautéed potatoes and onions, roasted peppers, and arctic char. The arctic char was perfect! It was coated all sides in a flour, salt, pepper mix and seared on the stove top. There was a crisp skin and a buttery taste!
And then I went to bed by 9 after setting out the running clothes I’ll be wearing. Feels like I’m getting ready for the first day of school.
