Day 92... Problems

Well today was interesting. Remember my post about my ear on day 68? I woke up this morning and it was throbbing a bit more than usual, not a full blown earache but throbbing none the less. I got dressed to workout anyway (because only my untimely death will stop me) and I proceeded to do my result measuring. I got on the scale and… nothing. No change. Still at 229.5. Ok no biggie. I did my measurements and… nothing. That’s when it came to me that right now is a BAD time for results. Not only is it my time of the month but I have this stupid ear thing going on and if I have an infection that I could be retaining water. So my solution: give it until the end of the week. I will post new pictures and my results on Friday. Now back to the ear. I did Push Circuit 1 and Stretch 10 and by the end of all that, I had an earache. I hate earaches!! Anyway I called my doctor and got an appointment for around noon and I called in sick to work. It turns out that I don’t have and ear infection (yet) but he prescribed me prednisone to help the fluid drain from behind my ear drum. He also had a nifty way to get rid of my earache! I filled and old sock with regular table salt and heated it in the microwave. Then I put it to my ear and not 5 minutes later the ache was gone!!! I took it easy for the rest of the day. The good news? I can still workout tomorrow!!
