With my new earlier bedtimes this week, I hadn't napped until today--and I took two. The medications prescribed post-procedure (removal of clogged salivary gland) have had considerable effects. Last night I experienced my first ever hot flash. I was fine one second--then, bam!! Suddenly I broke out in a sweat, instantly feeling uncomfortably hot. I kind of panicked a little, grabbed a thermometer and quickly checked my temp. It was normal. I was nauseous and slightly dizzy, too. Uhg. After my radio show this morning, I felt ill, so I made my way home for a midday rest.
I started feeling better mid-afternoon in time to return to the studio for a little while, before running some errands and heading home for nap #2. I've been advised to be okay with taking two rest days in a row. I'm choosing to be okay--although the 5K for autism is coming up fast on the 26th and I'm not ready!!! I'm looking forward to resuming my exercise schedule tomorrow afternoon at the YMCA. It's interesting how a tiny little salivary gland can wreak so much havoc!
I got up late this evening and started preparing a late dinner. I rarely buy the typically expensive orange roughy, but it was on sale--so a treat was in order! It is the best white fish I've ever tasted. It's much better than the less expensive tilapia I normally eat. Dinner was amazing tonight. I actually look forward to getting into the kitchen and preparing meals. It wasn't always that way. Once upon a time, convenience trumped cooking/preparing any day of the week. Now, my perspective has completed a 180. I actually prefer preparing my own meals over dining out. I get excited about assembling a good plate of food that checks in within the boundaries of my fundamental elements.
I'm getting in bed much later tonight. But it's okay, because the alarm will be set three and a half hours later in the morning. I have a location broadcast late morning from a grocery store's "massive meat sale," and I'll not only be broadcasting the deals, I'll be looking for some super inexpensive sirloins!
