Another eye exam is in the books. The bad news is my eyes got a little worse. The good news, if you can call it that, is that I don’t need bifocals … yet. The doc says that usually happens in the mid- to late-40s, so I don’t have much longer to go.
He did give me a secondary prescription for reading glasses. He told me that with my stronger prescription for nearsightedness, it might hinder computer work and close-up reading. I’m supposed to keep an eye out for that, and if it happens, go back and get myself some reading glasses. If I have to do that, I’ll probably just have new lenses put in my current frames.
Thanks for all your feedback on frames. I (finally) made my decision:
The blue frames.
And yes, thanks to the Boyfriend’s insistence, I got the Transitions lenses — you know, the kind that change colors outdoors.
The last time I had photo-gray lenses, they never did get completely clear. Even inside, I had to look through gray-tinted glasses.
Of course, that was my first pair of glasses, way back in seventh grade. I certainly hope the technology is much improved almost 30 years on.
The technician who helped me with my order said “You have great benefits.”
$272 later, I have to wonder how much my glasses would have cost if I had less-than-great benefits. Apparently a lot more than that …
For the first time in weeks, I took no pictures today. (That’s why I’m recycling some from Saturday, in case you hadn’t guessed.)
I had my weekly WI for WW: Down another 0.8 pounds from last Monday. Not a super-shiny loss, but a loss all the same. I’ll take it. It puts me at 29 pounds gone since Jan. 1.
After my check-in with the mean metal monster, I fueled up for my first Best Body Bootcamp workout with a banana and PB. Then I headed out to the deck with my stability ball and a set of five-pound weights.
I always forget how sneaky Tina’s workouts are. They LOOK simple enough when demonstrated by some buff chick or dude on my laptop screen … but when it’s time for me to do them, I realize they’re much tougher than they appear. I made it through 2 full sets, but started to get lightheaded as I started set 3. I decided that was my body’s way of saying “Enough,” so I stopped. Hopefully next week I’ll be able to do more.
Funny how I can walk at a decent clip for an hour without getting over-tired, but can’t last for more than about 30 minutes of strength training. More than 10 hours later, I’m feeling it in my chest and my legs. I might have to use the foam roller before bed.
I’m apparently in indecisive mode, because I had a heck of a time settling on my extra bootcamp goals, too. My personal goals for Phase One are:
- No snacking after work (I already broke this one when I got home Monday. Thank goodness I still have six days to get it right.)
- Brushing/flossing before bed. (Still have time to do that.)
Despite another stressful work night, my week is off to a great start. I should have new glasses in a week to 10 days, and, compared to last week (when I ate a chunk of FPs on Monday), I’m already ahead of the WW game.
The little things make me happy. My FlexPoints are like money in the bank: The more I have, the better I feel. Am I the only one who feels that way? Tell me I’m not …
