Feeling really blah

Sunday, July 07, 2013

Yesterday I was feeling so very blah. All that I did the entire day was watch television and make a quick run to my parents' house to water their plants and check up on things as they are out of town.

When I get like this, I am in no mood to be around people because it takes too much effort to be around them. I hope today will be a better one.

One Year Anniversary

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

Today is my one year anniversary of my Laparascopic Gastric Bypass. I have lost 74 lbs. so far. There have been some bumps along the way; mostly emotional but other than that, it has been a good journey.

I am at work and don't have much time to post anything else, but I thought I just could not let this day pass without noting the significance of it.

Actually, it is 6:30 p.m. It was exactly at this time last year where I was in my hospital room (having just come from recovery). My mother and sister were in the room with me and I was telling them it was okay to go home (they had been with me since 5:30 AM). After they left, I called the nurse and told her that I needed to get up and start walking. She said I should wait until the following day. I told her that I was ready to start walking right then and there. So she got me up and going and I have been moving forward since that day.

Although I have had some minor setbacks and periods of stagnation; somehow I found a way to keep moving forward. Well, gotta go. Work beckons and I have to pay the bills. So, I will write more on this later.

Week 4, Day 1

Monday, October 29, 2012

Okay, so I began Week 4 of my training today. Went for a walk where I live. It is very windy out and it is 45 degrees. I believe this wind is part of the Hurricane Sandy effect. But, I was dressed warmly and by the time I got home, I was sweating.

The route I followed was very curvy and was more up and down (not hilly) than walking the track or the streets of Chicago. So, it took a bit more effort. I was quite surprised at how I felt, which was exhilarated and very proud of myself. Right now, I am just resting and enjoying this feeling that I cannot really describe. Well, this is all for now.

I have been keeping an eye on the weather reports and am praying for everyone on the East coast.


So happy

Friday, October 26, 2012

Got my new food scale on Tuesday and I was so happy. I love to weigh all my food and make sure that I stay on track. Only allowed 4 oz. per meal, and need to stay on track with that.

Went for a very brisk 20 minute walk this evening downtown in Chicago. A total of 2.2 miles and it was lovely. A big chilly, but I was walking so fast, that I was actually quite warm.

Back on track with the walking

Monday, October 22, 2012

I just came back from a 40 minute walk and it felt great. I worked up a sweat -- my jacket is hanging inside out to dry -- and my hair along my neck is damp. It felt good. I was listening to the Spanish Harlem Orchestra on my IPod and was walking a very brisk pace. I cooled off by dancing first a fast merengue and then a slower one. It was great. This is how every day should begin.

I already feel so very productive this morning. Well, I am off to finish washing clothes. After the hole in my attic fiasco, I am having to wash everything; and in some cases re-wash. The upside of this, is now that everything is out of the closet, I am sorting what fits and what doesn't; and what I haven't worn in ages. The sisters at Sojourner Truth house are going to be happy with my donation.

Hope everyone is well and having a great day!
