It's been a miserable couple of weeks. I went back to the dentist and my tooth was cracked. So they put me on antibiotics for a week, then removed my tooth on Friday November 12th. Now because I have had a dry socket before he decided to put a stitch in it to prevent that. Naturally it wasn't pain free, but this isn't the first time I have had a tooth out. However by Wednesday I had, had enough. Got an emergency appointment and he took the stitch out (thank goodness) and packed my socket with medication. It was swollen, but he said it was healing. As I am writing this on Sunday morning, it is still sore but manageable.
Due to all this pain and a few other things that have gone on, I have had a personality transplant, and miserable doesn't even begin to describe how I have been....LOL Poor dh has been ready to move out, but I do feel I am on the other side of all of this.
Adding to all this misery I have been dealing with an issue with my fridge. It's a simple issue but it's a $200 part and warranty will cover it. However dealing with the warranty folk is making me lose the will to live at times😏 Suffice to say, if you are thinking of buying appliances, DO NOT by KitchenAid they are not worth the money. Our fridge is less than 3 years old. I paid over $5 thousand for it and the ice maker bucket is rusting out.
Hopefully this will get sorted out this week, but I am not holding my breath. Thankfully the fridge is operational without this part as this mess has been going on for over two weeks now.
The blog is going to change a bit for the next 30 days as I am embarking on a 30 day challenge on the treadmill. So I will be posting daily and using this blog as a diary to write how I get on.
I have lost 17 lbs in the past 8 weeks. It's been a hard slog, but I am determined not to give up. This challenge I am hoping will spur me on as I have a goal of wanting to lose 25lbs (total) before I talk to the doctor sometime during the week of December 20th.
My sugar levels are improving. My clothes are fitting a whole lot better, some are even looking too big😁 I am trying to do two 30 minute walks everyday, and they are up and down hills. I am trying to walk around 30 miles a week, as that is my preferred method of exercise, but the weather is getting worse as we head into the end of November.
So it will be interesting to see how this challenge goes. I hope you can follow along.
