Columbus Day

Monday, October 12, 2009

It's a holiday; and I have done some good things and some 'bad' things. This morning I walked 3/10 of a mi to my hair dressers, and back home again. My pace was as brisk as the weather. : )

At lunchtime my husband said, 'let's go out for lunch today. I want pizza.' Since I've been wanting pizza too, I agreed. And I ate some salad first (Pizza Hut has a weekday buffet) then messed up. I prefer thin-crust pizza, so stuck to those choices (that was good), but I ate far, far too much of it (that's the bad). Well, I'm not going to whine, nor eat like a pig the rest of the day; but I KNEW I shouldn't have had had that much pizza - thin crust or not.

This afternoon my walking buddy had errands, so I went alone - not easy to pry me from the couch. But I walked for 37 minutes, so that was good.

Tomorrow's another day. Hopefully a healthier choice day.

Sunday's update

Sunday, October 11, 2009

I'm off Vicodin and just using Ibrprophen today. Hurray!

It's a beautiful early fall day, sun shining, breezy, temps not too high. I love fall. I love the leaves changing color, and then falling off, leaving interesting-shaped branches to be seen. I love the briskness of the temps.

Y'all have a great week!

I'm on as normal a diet as I want to be, according to the oral surgeon. But that doesn't include chips and such. That's ok with me. I'm watching my intake today, but otherwise pretty much just chillin' because I'm on Vicodin for the mouth pain. It's all getting better, but I'm not up for (nor is it a good idea for me to) treadmill today. The Vicodin 'caution' is to not operate heavy machinery - I'm translating that to mean the treadmill. Hahaha!

At least I'm watching my food intake, and trying to make that good today. Looking forward to being fully recovered soon. Planning on taking my usual walk with my buddy on Monday.

9 Oct, evening

As expected, the anticipation of oral surgery was worse than the actual event.

My eating today is limited by order of the doctor, and of course, no exercise today; but I'm doinig 'ok'. I do have 'discomfort' - thanks to Vicodin to keeping the pain level down to that.

I took a look at the implant this evening (I'm curious, just call me 'kitty') and there's weird looking thing stitched into my jaw. Ok, curiousity satisfied.

Sorry to bore you with going on and on about this surgery, but it's been a big deal for me.

Have a great weekend.

I'm calm about tomorrow's procedure. And I dare say that the anticipation has been much worse than the actual fact will be. I have a VERY active imagination. : )

I've been busy today: cleaned the kitten room at a no-kill shelter (takes about 1-1/2 hrs to do it right), then went grocery shopping this afternoon. This evening my knitting group meets and I'm looking forward to the new grandbaby pictures one of the girls plans to bring.

I expect I'll sleep a lot tomorrow, since I'll be put 'out' for the oral surgery, and that usually leaves me somewhat groggy the rest of the day. Oh well, there's zero chance of going over my calorie goal for tomorrow! emoticon
