Hello, sweet fitness family...
Well, I've been having some problems going on lately...You all know I talked about doing PT for the body pain I've been having, I haven't started it yet, but now I'm having other issues...😔 I've been getting very dizzy whenever I stand back up from crouching, sitting, lying down, or just from bending over. Every time it happens, I almost fall because I get very unsteady and off balance, it takes a lot of work to steady myself and not just fall over...(Back in 2015, this was happening or something similar and I was falling at least 7 times a day, even in stores. Kept getting covered in bruises. Was in Rehab and it happened in there too, my BP was very high and when this happens and I sit down, I can't get back up unless I have help because it's like my legs don't want to work anymore and they feel so weak, and heavy...) I've been short of breath too and it's like I can't get the air to hit the right spot in my chest so it feels like I'm kind of suffocating and it's just making me miserable! Also, it makes me lightheaded and dizzy too. My Dr. Gave me a glucose meter with strips to test it every few days and especially when I feel dizzy and sick, she told me to take it when I haven't eaten and I did last night when I felt really bad and it was 121. She told me it should be between 80-100, so I'm not sure if 121 was not too bad or bad...Anyway, I JUST want to figure out what the cause is for all that's going on so it can be fixed and I can feel better! With all of my mental problems, I really don't need all these physical problems! 😔 Also, I am going to a Psychologist where my Psych is, to have learning disability tests done. I wanted to do it. Another thing that has me worrying js that well, I've always been pretty forgetful, but lately...Past few months or even within the last year, I feel like my memory has gotten worse and I'm being a lot more forgetful. I am a huge over worrier, so I'm worried about that and don't want to find out that it's like early on set Alzheimers or Dementia or something bad like those! I was thinking I might go to the ER tonight or tomorrow if this doesn't let up any because it isn't a very good feeling at all! So when I stand from a down position, what happens is that I become very dizzy, my head gets tight, I close my eyes and sometimes see orange/red, I become wobbly, my ears get really hot, sometimes making me hear unclearly and it happens no matter how long I am down for. Hours, minutes or even seconds. I just need and want to know what's going on with me!! 😭

Has anybody else noticed that the posts in here are out of alignment? Our names are lower down than the sentence they're in. Hmm...what are these master web developers up to? Well, I'm not so sure we think they're masters. Snort.
Oh, and what is the origin of *kittens*? You know, I'm quite fond of just replacing a letter with, I don't know, a symbol. For example replacing a single letter, like "*kitten*", or replacing several for the very ambiguous "&#%!" But, please, explain *kittens* to me. [UPDATE: I got my explanation. I had the example "*kitten*" in this paragraph without the quotation marks, and MFP changed it to kitten. What!?!]@lennoncpa Drinking enough water is more of a challenge when doing desk work. I noticed that the past couple of weeks as I have been working at my desk a lot to launch the new business, I'm not nearly as thirsty as when I'm active. Days when I'm out walking, cycling, doing HIIT, I'm downing the water. Five cups before lunchtime is no problem. You'll be back to a regular intake when tax season ends. I thought of you the other day when I ate a spoonful of hummus.@sleepymom5 When I read your post, I thought, "Great, great, great, great!" Great idea not buying treats, great planning the entire weekend, great that you are where you were before Jim was sick, and so, so great that you aren't planning to be online while you enjoy the weekend!" See you next week and enjoy!@Freeglerock and @minstrelofsarcasm Curse the water retention is right! You two are a pleasure to read. You're both so articulate with your descriptions that I take so much pleasure in reading what you're saying and have such empathy since it's happening to me every day lately. Thank goodness @Cafelelia is a great captain and changed your weigh-in days.
That reminds me of what @GingerPwr said about weighing daily all week to see the rolling average and the app that @ProfDawnLee recommended ~ Happy Scale. That's really helping me roll with the water weight. I think I'm developing a much healthier relationship with my scale.@brown6267 Great stepping. You're inspiring me to get moving now that my broken toe is almost better.@pacsnc6 Great loss ~ 1.1 is a lucky number. I hope you are well this week. Is it your week off of chemo?@Mrsbell8well Nice loss, you flower child. Thanks for reminding me of the daisy chains. Yes, we did make them and I can't wait to make some with Pippa. It's her third birthday and that's a great thing to do ~ make a crown of daisies with her to wear at the party.@tryingagain5 Whoa! Great weigh in. You've got this now! I bet it's the variety of mini-goals that you're engaged in. They don't have to be the same each week, just as effective. You've got me thinking of some new ones. Thank you.@melaniedscott Nice loss. Is the conference virtual or real? You lost me at dorm rooms. If it's virtual and you have rooms, that's really cool. But I think you're talking about last year. I once went to a conference in Chicago where I didn't know a soul. By day two, people in the street were saying 'Hey,' and I met this woman who was FaceTiming with her twin who was a prof at the university nearby to come down and meet me. What a warm bunch of people. I'm glad your toe is better and sorry to hear that your knees dislocate willy nilly. My daughter's are like that. I don't think people fully realize how important knees are to our freedom of movement. That's a big deal.@ljdanny I can so see you finding those videos under the bed. I have a bed where the mattress lifts up, kind of on a hydraulic hinge and there's storage in the frame below it. Yesterday I was putting something under there (the leaf to my kitchen table) and I noticed my Wii Fit. Weird. It's like our beds are sending us fitness messages. LOL.@Cafelelia Alas, we didn't roll down the hill this week. Pippa was wearing a nice dress and it was just a bit too hot. We went to the farmers market in the Green P at Borden Street. It was set up for distance shopping. I set up an umbrella over the wagon and we got golden beets, lovely pattypan yellow squashes, yellow beans ~ all things I can never find even in the best-stocked vegetable markets. I love it when the farmers come right into the city. The funny thing is that Pippa lives out in the country. But, hey (that sounds so Canadian eh).@nstephenson01 Great weigh-in and steps. I love sushi but have never had it in a loft with a view of the Montana mountains ~ wow! And congrats on the 160s! If we ever get to travel again, let's do a house swap. Haha. My view is the CN Tower. It's a landmark. Actually some people love the view but would prefer yours.
Everyone with gardens, it's time for some garden pics. I got a new iPhone 11 so maybe mine will be better than they were before. I saw a zucchini and a tiny eggplant yesterday.
