Well, 4 days post op and I feel a little better. The pain is less and I require less pain meds. Which is good since they make me drunk and dizzy. I worked out this morning. Well, I took a shower without help. So, that's my workout for today. I am sitting up in bed and watching bad movies on cable.
I weighed this am and I'm down to below pre-surgery weight. I weighed 213.2 this am. It makes me sick to type that because it is still up 3.6 pounds or so. I'm having trouble with math right now. I did decide to quit the sprite now. I feel better. So instead I had hot tea. I'll do this and water. I like honey in my tea, but splenda will do and that will decrease my calories.
I POOPED! I know you've all been waiting with baited breath to hear this news. It wasn't much, but it helped. I am less bloaty and that helps me feel a lot better.Maybe all this poop talk is why I lost a follower? If so, I'm sorry, but when you spend all day talking about certain things they don't seem like that big a deal anymore.
I WON! Jae over at I found it at the Marathon had a give away and I won! I won an itunes gift care which is awesome because as as soon as I can I'll be running again and I can always use some new tunes. I like angry music to run to. Any ideas? What's funny is I didn't even know I was entering. I was just reading and commenting cause that's what I do. I'm more interested in your stories than give aways, but hey, free stuff is awesome. If you haven't seen her blog, check it out. She's funny and a great writer and she ran a friggin marathon! Holy crap! Now that's courage.
I try to read and comment on as many blogs as I can each day. If I haven't on yours yet, don't take it personally. I went through and marked almost all of the hot 100 as blogs I follow. I'm trying to read and encourage as many people as I have time to. Right now, I have a lot of time if I'm awake and coherent. Which is iffy sometimes. I know not everyone will like me. I don't like everyone either. I'm here to get healthy. I'm here to be fit. Blogging is a tool to help me do that. I hope I can help some of you get where you want to be.
And, yes, I'm being selfish by following those that I get the most out of. You all should do the same. Find blogs that speak to you in some way. Then read them everyday and Comment. Whether I have 3 followers or 300, your comments mean a lot to me. We need each other here. We all have days that are harder than others. You never know when a little comment will keep someone on track. I love it when new people comment on my blog. I love getting to know new people and helping people just starting out. I have a lot more weight to lose. I need you people. So, my way of paying you back is to read and comment and I hope it helps.
So get busy people! I am tracking my calories and blogging and commenting even though I'm sick. What have you done today to help yourself be healthy??
