Daily Bites and New Meds

Today I started taking the diuretic pill my PCP prescribed in an attempt to reduce the swelling in my legs and feet. I think it will take a couple of days to really kick in but my legs were not as swollen and heavy as they have been so this is good. My blood pressure medicine was also cut in half again so now I am taking the lowest dose of this medication that there is.


Lower protein day today: 74 grams. I felt kind of bleh about my eating today. Like I couldn’t decide what I was going to have for breakfast or dinner. Thankfully I have stuff in the freezer I can heat and eat on days like this but I need not to make this a habit.
