Still not great, but better...

Posted Jan 29 2013 9:33pm
I'm woke up feeling about 25% better than yesterday. Still not feeling great.

I weighed myself today, I broke 200 lbs. You have no idea how heart breaking that is. It was only about a month ago I was 188 lbs and wham, now I'm up 12 lbs and feel like shit. It's so easy to put it on and so hard to take it off. I think I may have to sign up to go to a fat farm for two weeks. I need the pantry locked up and no beer.

Today I got out of the house, not to train, but to go to the dentist. It's been about a year and I have a piece of tooth that cracked off about a year ago and needs a crown. I figured it was time to get my butt to the dentist.

It's a new one, closer to home, very high tech. Dentistry has gone to a whole new level. They took x-rays, photo's and a whole bunch of other tests. They even took my blood pressure, which was 88/133. Higher than it should be, like I said, I'm not feeling good.

Turns out I have lots of cracks in my teeth. I guess opening beer bottles with my teeth as a young person is coming back to haunt me. I need to get a crown and a bunch of fillings replaced. Normally I wouldn't believe the dentist, I'd just think they are trying to get more money off me. But I've had a couple teeth crack already, had to get a crown and then a bridge and now I believe them. An ounce of prevention is my motto.

As the day went on I started to feel a little better. Still not good enough to train. I didn't want to risk it. I wasn't feeling that good. It's only a second rest day. Tomorrow we'll see how I feel.

It's not like I can go to the doctor or hospital. I don't know what I would tell them? It's not like I have an acute pain, it's just that I feel really shitty and my finger feels cold. It was feeling the same way today, but not as much.

This is an interesting period of my life, never experienced anything like this before.

No training - rest.
