Not great from the weather aspect though. At 7 pm it's still 99 degrees and I was gone during the coolest part of the day so I didn't get the swamp cooler turned on until late afternoon. I'm going to take a beer outside and sit in the shade on the driveway, or wait for the sun to go down to see if the porch cools off.
I ran a lot of errands from about 9am on - got my mail delivery resumed at this address, got my hair cut, etc. I love the cut this time, and went a bit shorter than usual because of the heat.
The best part was meeting the chiropractor Dr. B. referred me to here in Sac. I really like him and think I'm going to be doing well under his care. I miss the exuberant personality of Dr. Bergman though. I have my second appointment scheduled for next Tuesday, and I guess we will discuss the finances of this treatment plan - not a pleasant thought right now. I'm going to call my credit union in the morning and see if I can get their advice on it. I might have to sacrifice my travel fund, but I vow to do whatever it takes.
I asked the Dr. about going back to the gym and what I should avoid doing - rats, the thing I like best and shouldn't do is the bench pressing and some of the machines that provide the same type of lifting. There will come a time when I can do it though. Toward the end of the appointment he did some adjustments, and while they don't hurt, it comes as a bit of a shock. I swear I feel better already after the adjustment made by Dr. B., and I hope this one today will just add to my improvement. Interestingly, I found out that one leg is 1/2" shorter than the other, which adds to my posture problems. It's all fixable and I'm 100% optimistic!
That's it for today. Hope you are surviving the crazy weather wherever you are. I'm so tired of the heat, and have been thinking about how comfortable I was near the beach! I sure couldn't afford to live there and really wouldn't want to, but it was a lovely time for me, and perfect weather.
