I was doing well over the past few days, but strayed a bit from the plan yesterday. My husband had friends over to play poker and there were lots of junky snacks (cookies, chips, etc.) I'm usually pretty good about avoiding that stuff, but last night I did a bit of grazing, which is just a bad idea. It wasn't too excessive, but enough that I feel a bit yuck this morning and more hungry than I usually am. It's still weird to me that snacking on carbs makes me hungrier than not snacking at all. I understand it, but in the moment I conveniently forget. Duh.

Anyway, no change in the weight, which is good. I'm back on track again. My knee has been bothering me a little for the past couple of days, which is really not good. So, I'm going to play less soccer this weekend than I typically do. But I'll have to get to the gym and run on the eliptical or something instead.

Ug. Middle aged body.

I'm doing fine overall, but am feeling sad and a bit worried right now. I'm in my early 40s. I just had my first mammogram last week and the clinic called and said I need to come back in "for more pictures" to look at one spot more closely. I'm going in today, won't know results until early next week.

The rational part of my brain says that it's probably nothing. People get called back in all the time, and since this is my first scan they want to have a very good reading of everything. But I can't help but worry. I have so many friends who've had cancer, it is just shocking to me how common it is. Although I don't have any family history, which is good, I'm still very unhappy about the uncertainty this brings and the possibility of something very bad. Plus, I live in a small town, so now I am not sure how much to trust the clinic here and wonder if I'll need to go up to the hospital in the city an hour or so away. And it is frustrating to feel so helpless about my body right in the middle of my big effort to have more control over my health. Reminds me that we really can only control so much.

All of that is premature, of course, and I'm trying to listen to my rational brain. It's. Probably. Nothing. Wish me luck.

I also am selfishly sad that my closest friend here is moving for a year and I won't see her much. That's unrelated to this, of course, but adds to my feeling of sadness right now.
