Getting my first mammogram this year....what do I expect? What if my boobs are too small to fit in the smoosher? These are genuine concerns of mine.

I'm so mad. I bought a decent elliptical machine less than a year ago and it started to malfunction. It only stays on high resistance. I have to have the service people come look at it and I'm so pissed. Why does everything break in less than a year these days??? Oh, and I already checked on the warranty. They claim the issue is likely due to wear and tear and not subject to the warranty. Assholes.

I've been biking daily since the end of May. I feel happier, more confident because of how strong I've gotten, and a long ride feels meditative and quite the major destressor. I feel less thrilled about going back to regular talk therapy for more mental processing. Maybe I just need to take more action on sh*t that I know will make my body feel really good.

Warning, bragging ahead: I was at a party yesterday, and overhead a conversation. One friend (E) was talking to another friend, who inquired about E's 50 pound weight loss over the pandemic. E tells her she was inspired by me! She said <my name> lost 50 pounds 10 years ago, and has kept it off the entire time, and used it as a launching pad of turning into a physical badass. And E figures if I can do, so can she. I haven't really thought about my journey as being inspirational, especially since in started in terror. My doctor said I was likely to be diabetic if I didn't loss the weight ASAP, and my fear of needles made me drop (and mostly keep) the weight off. And after that, everything was easier (like running, yoga, dancing, hiking) so I just kept doing more. I feel really proud of myself now. Yay me for accomplishing a healthy body! Now I'm going to go celebrate with a really nice salad and a trail run.

I just led an impromptu two song dance party with coworkers/members at our zoom member party. People seemed more relaxed and laughed. All the things disco ball and music can do!

Now that things are opening back up and I'm seeing friends again, I'm slowing gaining weight. It was so easy to maintain during the pandemic, but now I'm back to drinking and snacking and the numbers are creeping up. I thought I used to lose weight just by upping my activity level, but maybe that doesn't work anymore now that I'm pre-menopausal? I went on a 8 mile hike yesterday, and then ate small portions of sautéed veggies and tofu when I got home. Since I was still hungry, I had another small portion. Still hungry, so another. I ate over 1,000 calories during the next 2 hours. And still felt kinda hungry! How does this work again? I thought I was being smart, eating high fiber, high nutrient dinner with a good amount of protein and a touch of fat.

I seriously hate ordering contacts. I have a very special prescription (super strong + astigmatism) for one eye and that lens is always on backorder. So I ordered contacts about a month ago and they still aren't here yet. It's a dang good thing I always keep a supply of them on hand to last until I order again.

I've been on a biking kick lately, enjoying the trails here and nice weather. I ridden 60 miles in the past week. I did a nice out and back for 20 miles this morning. The only thing missing are friends that love biking as much I do.

So apparently normal range of motion for opening your mouth is- you can fit a wine cork between your teeth lengthwise. I have not been able to do this (or eat like a normal person, I look like a bridge troll with food falling off my spoon and can't bite into an apple or sandwich) for almost three weeks. And this morning, eureka!! I did it! I was so excited! I yawned, and my mouth opened up really wide, and I literally ran to the kitchen with my mouth wide open to find a wine cork & measure. I was so excited!!!! Then I closed my mouth and now I can't do it again. WTF. F*cking TMJ. I'm such a mess. At least I did it once. I just need to figure out how I did it so I can do it again. Also, at least I know now that it's got to be a problem with my muscles/ligaments and NOT my actual jaw bone. So that's good. Right? I'll take anything right now.

My pharmacy keeps fucking up my ADHD medication, it's late constantly by weeks and I have to phone them every couple of days...I checked the reviews and it's full of angry people who are not getting their meds on time...like people with serious heart conditions and shit. They keep brushing it off as if it's no big deal. In my case it's not, I'm not going to go psychotic because I run out of ADHD meds, I'm going to be tired and grumpy and need a coffee IV drip, but there are plenty of psychiatric meds out there that stopping suddenly can cause sudden severe suicidal ideation or psychosis. Fucking ridiculous.
