Does anyone know if you can somehow update your blog remotely? I may be away this weekend and it would be nice to still be able to blog. I looked around online and really couldn't find an app, well..an app that didn't cost any money. Free is the magic word!
So yesterday I'm felling really good when I get up, and the house of course has not been cleaning itself...it was the maids day off (right), so I decided to do some cleaning. Omigosh, it took me sooo long. I was taking breaks and sweating, what a workout, but I think I just overdid it. I guess a week out of surgery isn't that long when you think about it. I have been very aware of the changes going on inside my tummy. Mostly I notice the incredibly intense "gnawing" sensation when I'm hungry, it's almost painful..it does that crazy feeling then it is followed by a regular tummy growl. Weirdness. Also my pockets are getting fatter! I am not going out to eat, and I know that this is due a lot to the pre-op diet and now the pureed...although, I really see myself eating at home most of the time know. For one, I can't eat very much, and I really really want to stay away from starches. So far I don't miss them. Another saver has been wine...I admit, I love my wine, but I am not keeping it at home right now, and haven't been going out to dinner and having it, so this band is really a blessing. I'm not sayin I'm not drinking ever again...but for now, I don't miss it. I have been so ready for this lifestyle change, I just needed the right tools to make it work.
I can feel the band too, especially if I sit a certain way. If there is any slouching in my spine at all, I feel it in there pressing and I immediately straighten up. So I guess thats a plus.. It is just a weird feeling tho. Knowing its in there. Sometimes when I am drinking something and get a little "full" feeling, it almost feels like I can't take normal deep breaths..? I just have to remind myself to slow down, and try to be very aware of reading my body.
I do have a Zumbaaaa! report. A friend of mine goes to a weekly class, and has invited me in the past, but I am finally going. I'm very excited that it just a pay as you go class, so no gym membership required. That works for me :) I have read on so many blogs out here how popular it is, so I am going to give it a try. I love dancing, so I think I'll enjoy it. I did ask her if I would be the biggest girl there...and she was like.."Noooo!" so. okay. I'll go. lol.
There is a support group tomorrow evening at my Dr.s office. I really want to go. Now that I am on the other side, I have different things to talk about and questions.
I really hope everyone has a great day..!
