I mostly sat around today after not being able to sleep well last night. I kept waking up with the worst leg and foot cramps I've ever had. I've been trying to cut back a bit on how much water I drink during the day so I won't have to get up as often during the night. Also, I hope the salt doesn't wash out of my system. I'm enjoying the V-8 juice I drink every day as the cardiologist suggested I do because I need a little extra salt. I don't spare the salt in my cooking so I don't know why I'm low in it. I think maybe I haven't found that magic spot between too much and too little water, and that might cause the leg cramps.
Ara flew back to Philadelphia last night but will be back in December for Autumn's birthday and Christmas. It's sad to see her go.
We've had some heavy rain today so I didn't venture out. The only time I went through the door was to retrieve my newspaper. It was packed with Christmas ads and I knew all the stores would be crowded with people looking for bargains. I'll make a trip to Costco on a weekday morning and should be ok.
Have a good week - next weekend will be here before you know it!

Interesting observation on salt and one's metabolism . . . I noticed that DH's salt level is always at the low end of normal, and mine is at the high end of normal.ReplyDelete
Why is that strange? Well, I put salt on almost nothing, and find many foods too salty. DH salts everything in sight!
Conclusion? My body has all it needs; his is always seeking more!
