    Same w the chocolate this trip. Glad to have sponge cancy bc I cannot buy here but... feel bad bc I sent extra desert home w bro, who also should be careful, last night to keep self out of it >.> I had so much to eat I was vaguely uncomfortable but if that stuff had been left near me I'd of gotten more.

    Back safely in NYC. Going to count luggage wrangling as workout and just do some stretching, bc somehow my left calf is so angry at me I was limping. So rly there is no body part K can safely put a load on today lol.

                      some stretching



                      In some pit of ennui atm and also freaking out a bit bc looking bc at my dad I can see in myself the same pattern (writ small (so far) thank goodness) of water retention/edema. Going to put plant nanny back on my phone to encourage water drinking and try a few weeks of "lazy keto" (not tracking, bc tracking is double edged for me, but I know that diet well enough to just follow its framework np) to get some of this water weight off while still on recovery from shoulder enforced rest.

                        Is heart disease a problem in your family?

                        Comment


                          Congestive heart failure is a thing on dad's side, and my seemingly healthy uncle dropped dead of heart failure at 50 something. On mom's side, my uncle was one of the pioneers research wise concerning the sodium/potassium pump mechanism in cells, driven by issues my grandfather had. (There are also some good genes tho thank god, great gram and gram on moms side both made late 90s w few issues >.>). So yeah, aveoturbo, you could say it does. All of my numbers are good (colesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar, etc) but until I got down below 170 I had a sort of puffy/babyfat look my whole life that I am pretty certain was/is fluid. (And I have horrible varicose veins so there is evidence my circulatory system is imperfect.) To get it off w out perscription water pills (which are not nice to kidneys so I'd rather not) I can slash carbs or slash sodium...and salt is much harder for me to give up so, byebye bread for awhile I guess.

                            Wanted to go to gym today but...calf still felt "tight" while walking if not actively ouchy. And shoulder is better but not fully. More like "lets me know I should be gentle w it" and much less of "hurts 24/7" but still. Meh.

                            Ease out + farmers carry of groceries as workout.

                            Also, possibly TMI but day 1 of "ketosis to get this fluid out of me" was a success. Ate properly w out feeling like I tried to, even, got 3l water and had to pee like 9 times at work >.>

                              It sounds like things are getting better. It always takes longer than we want it to.
