It’s a gorgeous day here in the nation’s capital. I celebrated that and my improving mobility with a walk among the azaleas at the National Arboretum.
And don’t hate, but I figured if Diane Sanfilippo could celebrate the season with a Cadbury Creme Egg, I could celebrate my own way: with a 32 oz Diet Coke.
Yes, sad, but hey, I’ll be back to plain tea for the rest of my MMLAFL. I was supposed to be done as of end of Lent (which is partly why I rationalized the Diet Coke) but I’m going to extend until April 21st, when I get my bi-monthly bloodwork done.
After that, I’ll start adding things back in one at a time and see whether or not I notice any issues, particularly joint related. It may have been something else, but curious that I noticed some twinges the other day after eating spinach both at lunch and dinner. I could live without spinach, but am hoping the nightshades aren’t a problem: I like my tomatoes and peppers!
Next weigh-in is next Saturday. I’m hoping that I’ll have undone the holiday damage (my plus 21 pounds) by then. More as it develops!
