Ten Things Thursday

1.  It's been forever since I did a TTT.  I've been slacking on blogging and need to get better.  I've been reading other blogs, just haven't felt like posting much.

2.  Went in for a fill yesterday. I got just a tiny amount put in.  I think I'm about 6cc, but not 100% sure.  It's funny, in the beginning I was obsessed with how much volume was in my band, now not so much.

3.  I've been on liquids since the fill and can already feel a difference.  I can't drink as fast or as much at one time.  I'm also having some shoulder pain when I drink to quick.  I'm hoping that goes away soon.

4.  I had broken up with my scale this month, but since I was going to be weighed at the dr I weighed at home in the morning.   235.0.  Yippee, down 3.8 pounds since the beginning of the month.

5.  The was Happy Dance done yesterday morning.  Of course at my dr I weight in at 238.  I guess I was wearing 3 pounds of clothes ;)

6.  Derby Lite started up again.  We have almost 30 women in the class!  It's amazing to see so many people skating together.

7. If you haven't already you should check out Derby Lite.  It's an exercise class based on Roller Derby, but without the hitting/knocking each other down.  It's a lot of fun and great exercise.  It was started in Chicago, but there are now classes coast to coast.

8.  I have a nasty headache today.  Last time I got a fill I had a nasty headache the next day as well.  So far this hasn't moved into migraine territory, and I'm hoping it doesn't.  I have liquid ibuprofin at home, may have to leave work early to take some.

9.  I'm thinking about becoming a distributor of Miche bags.  Has anyone heard of them? I love mine, and the start up isn't too much.  I just have to convince my husband it's a good idea.

10.  I've had 7 personal training sessions, only 3 more to go.  They have been awesome!  I wish I could continue, but we are trying to watch the budget, so no pt for a while.  My trainer has really kicked my butt and made me do things I never though I could.

Non Weigh In Wednesday

Since I've broken up with my scale I didn't weigh in today.  I was so tempted, but not going to do it.  I need to have some willpower.

Speaking of willpower, I had just about none yesterday. Well, that's not all true.  I was good all day.  Around 8 I was hungry, so do I go for some protein?  NOOOOO!  I go for the chocolate easter bunny I bought my husband (I had already eaten mine).  I figured by now he wasn't going to eat it, and I didn't want it to got to waste, I love that excuse don't you?

So any hoo...I chopped off it's ears and ate those first. Did that satisfy me, of course not, went back and ate the whole damn thing.

Not this normally wouldn't be soo terrible, not great, but not horrible. But this week is very bad exercise wise for me.  So here's my usual plan for exercise for the week, and what I'm actually going to do:

Monday:  Walk/Run with the dogs:  DONE
Tues:       Zumba                           Missed do to anniversary dinner
Wed:       Derby Lite Class              In between sessions so no class this week
Thurs:     Zumba or Aerobics          Will miss do to Fleetwood Mac concert
Fri:          Personal Training             Skipping since I won't get in until 1 or 2am from concert

I will take the dogs for a walk/run today, so that's something.  Busy week, so not too much exercise.  Will need to do better next week.

My Fitness Pal

I have been totally slacking on logging my food.  I started with MFP right after surgery and I did so well.  I stopped for awhile and realized I wasn't doing so well, so I went back.  Then I stopped again...guess what, not doing so well again withe my food choices and the reflects in the scale.  So I need help/accountability.

Anyone on MFP want to be my friend? My name there is colleenjoy1 if you want to add me as a friend.

Funny Friday

I saw this in Harli's blog and had to steal it for myself.  This is so me!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend.  It's supposed to be in the 60's and 70's here, so I will be out "running".

Weigh in Wednesday and a break-up

Today's weight...

Up 1.6 pounds from last week.  UGH.  So what did I do after that lovely number on the scale?  Got a nice piece of coffee cake for breakfast, full of apples and cinnamon yumminess.  And full of fat and calories too!!!!!!!  Might as well have it right, I already gained, why bother right?  

Have to stop that thinking.  That leads me to my break-up.  I've decided not to weigh in the rest of the month.  I let my emotions be dictated  by the numbers on the scale. I need to free myself from that.  Clothes are fitting better, I feel soo much better.  That should be so much more important than a number.  

 I've got an appointment at the end of the month, so that will be when I weigh in next.  I'll use this month to focus on my eating, fluid intake and exercise.

New Pics and Major NSV!

Haven't taken official pics in a loooong time, way over due.  Here's the comparison from the day before surgery to yesterday. Hard to believe both of those are me. 

Pre Surgery
10.5 months post op

We had reservations to go out to a nice restaurant for Easter Dinner.  I realized saturday that I had nothing springy to wear.  So off the my favorite post surgery clohting store (Goodwill) to see what I could find.  Amazingly I found a dress from Taget, still with tags on (they had a whole buch, so must have been straight from target).  The most amazing supercalafrasticexpealidocious thing is that it's an XL, and it fit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

At first I wasn't even going to try it, but I figured for a couple of bucks even if it doesn't fit for a while it's worth it.  Didn't have time to try it on at the store, so tried it on at home.  Needed a little spanx help to smooth things out, but it fit great.  Of course I didn't get a picture of it. maybe I'll put it back on and snap a pic.
