Today is October 16th and I’m going to see the orthopedic surgeon, per my GP’s request. I’m hoping this will put an end to my “bad back” episode. My right hip is giving me a problem and I might mention that today, but my back is all better as far as I can tell. This week is weird. Today’s appointment takes away one of my gym sessions and on Thursday I have Blood Bank, so that will take another gym session. Wednesday there is an office luncheon for Boss’ Day, but I won’t overeat. We are pretty health conscious here. If I don’t lose weight this week I will not panic. I’ll just hope I can get back to my normal routine next week. We’ll see….
