    ✅ Exercise
    ❌ Calories
    ✅ Tracking

    I am over today one peanut butter cookies worth of calories from my fav coffee place. I stopped there on the way home from the doc after getting my CAT scan results on my throat…
    which were I need a MRI for more throat imaging and a referral to a pulmonologist because it picked up nodules on my lungs. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I’m getting really tired of one test leading to another leading to another and never leading to an answer. I’m not worried as much about the nodules on the lungs as they are common, I am not a smoker, and I know for a fact my mother has them and I have her DNA. That being said - off I go better safe than sorry. I did see in googling them they are common with RA, and my family is good at autoimmune diseases. I then was like huh, let me Google all the other stuff I’m seeing specialists for. All common with RA - trouble swallowing, chronic costochondritis, nodules on lungs, nodules in breasts I get regular mamos to monitor that just seem to be there and fine just annoying, sensitivity to light, dry eye, feeling like I got hit buy a bus 24/7, and being stuff as a board for the first few hours of the day. (You’ll notice I walk a mile before every run and that’s because my body needs that mile to loosen up or I’m too stiff to run).

    So, while I’m not usually a fan of self diagnosing, I think I should probably at least ask them to look into this. One answer that explains everything would be much nicer than 7 specialists with no answers.


    My Why… guys, don’t think less of me for this because I’m probably going to sound like a jerk here - I think my why is mostly vanity. Yes, I want to be healthy, and I had a diabetes scare. Yes, I want to be able to keep up with my kid. But if I’m being honest - if I’m trying not to eat a cookie the idea of diabetes doesn’t stop me, but seeing myself looking terrible in a mirror does. I just want to wear cute clothes and not feel judged while being out in public. People are mean. Maybe that’s my why - people really suck. Lol. 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Honey, I LOVE your honesty thank you for that, I agree with you 100%

    My why is very succinct: I want to be fit for the activities in life that I really enjoy. Horseback riding; hiking; in the past and hopefully in the future, kayaking.
    Today UAC check in:
    Tracking: easy. I was significantly under my limit. (the last two days would have been nice to average together, but that is not the UAC way)
    Calories: I should have eaten breakfast but the dropped ceiling in the basement was caving in from a water leak about that time. The hardwood floor refinisher had broken the water line to the refrigerator.
    Tracking: good
    Exercise: walking

    @RangerRickL Yikes!!! That sounds like a real mess!! :disappointed:
