I don't know where this goes. Is unlikely weightloss scenarios a category? lol
I cannot believe I have done this to myself. Actually I can. Picture it - It's mid-December and I am driving home from the University listening to the CBC. On comes a news item: Aspirin is now good for preventing cancer! I think to myself, my husband is a smoker, we are both drinkers, we eat moderately healthfully but we often have junkfood around the house. Heck! Aspirin may be just the thing to add to our little vitamin regimen! But ...why by the fancy low dose
aspirin when we have a whole full bottle of full strength aspirin right up in the cupboard? It's a waste of money!!
It's the end of January and I am starting to have stomachaches. Daily. And I don't know why! Genius!! My cheapness has gotten the better of me once again. The kindly doctor looked at me as though I was tough case and told me that low dose aspirin is usually
what people take. Did I detect a little patronizing tone? I don't know maybe it was imagination.
In a nutshell, I may have an ulcer or some ugly sounding thing called gastritis - as such I am on the proton pump inhibitor, AND cannot have coffee (which I adore), cigarettes (which I kind of adore once a week when I have...), a box a wine (which I adore) or fried foods (which I adore but do not mention to anyone).
It has been a tough couple of weeks. Although I feel slightly better and have it on good authority that I look great.
So it's not a diet plan or a lifestyle change that I've made consciously. It is a mishap which has resulted in health benefits. And fewer hangovers.
