I went to my appointment this morning with a list of questions, but forgot to ask about the lemon water. I did mention that I have been plagued with indigestion and heartburn, and when he checked the nerves leading to the digestive tract he made a couple of very sharp corrections. I am keeping my fingers crossed, but I haven't had a problem since. This had become constant, but as soon as I left his office I noticed an immediate difference. I had decided to use lemon juice in a glass of water every other morning, and will work my way back to every morning if I don't have problems. Getting into chiropractic care was the best thing I've ever done for myself!
I might add that his office submits the proper forms to Medicare and I have already gotten several checks (one fairly sizeable) in return. I would consider my money well spent even if I didn't get the Medicare break.
I have to be grateful for every little positive thing, so I am grateful that the weather isn't near the century mark as it has been. After tomorrow's predicted 91, we should be having a few days in the upper 80's.
I stopped on my way home today and bought a pound of organic grass fed beef. I cooked several small burgers and ate two for lunch. I thought I would have them for dinner, but think I will see how I feel later. I may be having an evening snack of a hamburger tonight.
The heat has really reduced my appetite and I have seen the scale going down a pound every few days. I have probably lost 3+ pounds during the current heat wave, and my problems with indigestion. Three pounds may not sound like much, but I don't have it to lose. I put on a loose, long dress yesterday that fit me last year, and realized I shouldn't be wearing it. It would be a major sewing alteration to take up the straps, and I have a problem holding it up and in place! Now that's pathetic.
I need to get back to the gym and at least walk on the treadmill in the mornings. I've really been lax, but have just felt such a lack of energy and motivation I haven't been able to get moving.
I hope all of you in the southwest can stay cool, and those in Florida, the Carolinas etc., stay safe. The best to everyone!
RAIN, LOTS OF RAIN!!!
