Slept almost 12 hours and feeling stiff from being in bed too long....

Saturday, November 05, 2011

Now that I am up I am getting the kinks out....I do, however, still have a headache which started yesterday morning and sort and came and went all day, which I suspect is a sinus headache since I work in a dustry environment (everyone at work has been sneezing this week which I think is due to the heat being on and blowing around dust from the vents). Someone I work with said it sounded like a TB ward with everyone coughing sniffling and sneezing all day. emoticon

    Hope you feel better tomorrow. I was only up that early to get to DS's last marching band competition. It was worth it!

TGIF.... weigh in shows lack of exercise and too much Halloween candy....

Friday, November 04, 2011

So where do I begin....?

I had a pounding headache this morning and wish I could call in sick but can't....

I called the podiatrist regarding the toe hurting and looking like raw meat (he said that is granulation tissue and is normal). He did put me on 2 weeks of 3 x a day Keflex to make sure I don't get infection. Told me to come see him if I run a temperature or the toe becomes swollen and/or red.

Because the toe has been bothering me I have not exercised for the last 10 days. I have promised myself to go swimming today as I am feeling achey all over and I always feel better after I swim.

I noticed my clothes are getting tight and weighed in again today and, yes, I have gained another 2 lb!!! So since my hand surgery in September and my toenail removal 10 days ago, I have gained 10 lb. This is definitely not acceptable and I have to stop eating all those yummy protein bars and candy from Halloween..... I also have not been careful about sodium which is a real problem for me.

Onward .... I am determined to get to 200 so I will feel better and my clothes aren't so tight.
I have to remember not to be mean to myself about the upward movement of the scale and just quit eating without thinking.... I have always had good success with weight loss when I keep track of what goes in.......

    I hope your toe starts healing more quickly, it must be painful. Sounds like you caught your weight gain before it spiraled way out of control. Good for you! emoticon

    I gave all my candy away so I have no temptation in the house. As for lack of exercise, that
toe maybe needs more attention right now. Do what you can and reverse the damage.

Come Saturday morning...slept in and having breakfast at 9:00 a.m.

Saturday, October 29, 2011

I made buckwheat pancakes (I should have had just one)...I ate 2...

Ingredients were buckwheat flour 1/3 cup, 1 egg, 1 tsp baking powder and some milk (didnt measure). Fried in Pam spray and topped with sugar free pancake syrup (sweetened with Splenda). They turned out very well.

Will be going to the gym today to swim and whirlpool. Toe is healing well. emoticon

    Glad you are not having much pain. I have been contemplating the same type of surgery lately.

    How has your first week back full time been?
Hope you are healing quickly and properly. I injured my foot early this week and had to have stitches, but fortunately it will only be 2 weeks before stitches come out. Your story makes me thankful that my progress is so quick!
Be careful this weekend! Pain may be fleeting, but it is still painful!!!

Back to work full time....after 6 weeks...

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

I was off work full time 3 weeks and then half time 3 weeks. It will be strange today working a full day after so much time off work.

The big toenail removal went well. I watched while he did that and was amazed how quickly it was done. This morning took off the dressing (as instructed) and replaced with a large bandaid. Surprisingly, the anesthesthetic is not worn off yet. I can wear my regular shoes today and hope things aren't too uncomfortable when the numbing effect is gone.

Have to remember to pack a lunch and snack today as I will be working full time today. emoticon
