I got in the gym for 45 mn today, just 25 mn on the bike then lifted weights for 25 mn, just to change it up a bit.

I don't know what the prices are in the States, but I have had acupuncture treatment for two issues. I went to a physiotherapist who was certified to practice a form of deep tissue accupuncture--it worked wonders on my chronic lower back pain and also resolved the issue where I could not turn my head and look over either shoulder. The treatments were $55 a session, and it took about 4-6 sessions to fix a problem with which I had lived for 25 years. I have been lower back pain free since 2005. And, I can still see over my shoulder. The acupuncture treatment for the sciatica nerve pain was $60 and I only required the one treatment. Some insurance plans cover acupuncture up to a certain amount. I was able to use the cost of the treatments on my tax returns under medical expenses.

Carol, are you on Medicare? If so, have you read that nice thick book they send you every year? Check to see if it is covered.

I doubt if it's covered. Mine doesn't even cover my chiropractor, but he is a friend and charges me a minimal fee.

Carol, Medicare is a federal program. And if you are on your state's Medicaid what Medicare doesn't pay for, Medicaid will pay the balance. Medicaid will also pay for your premiums for your Medicare.

I am not on Medicaid, just Medicare. I do not qualify.

Thanks for checking Addie! I was careful what I ate all day, I did splurge & have 3 fun size twix & 2 fun sized snickers & some hard candy. I ended up only going 50 calories over my goal for the day. We had over 100 trick or treaters for 5 hours, very busy neighborhood here. It felt like I had a sugar hangover, not much for an appetite the day after. Got some time in the gym yesterday. I'm feeling much better, overall, about eating this week, & exercising this week. Maybe the pool today.
Hope all is well with you Addie!

Glad to hear the good news. At least you are aware of the dangers in special holidays. Now we have to get you through Thanksgiving. Here's one watching over you and what you eat.
