So How To Prepare For Surgery Tomorrow...?

Monday, March 23, 2009

Oversleep the day before, have the craziest, busiest day EVER, and THEN before going to sleep, FINALLY get on my 'mill for a good session that will have to hold me over for a few weeks or so until I'm up to getting SPARKED again!

I bid my buddy the 'mill my farewell for now...

Getting ready to take it easy and catch up on DVDs I haven't seen, books I haven't read...slowing life down real easy.

Could be worse, eh? :-)

Thx again all you wonderful Sparkies for all your support and well wishes!

Will keep you posted as I can re: my progress...

    Best wishes~~! I know all will go well.

    I'm reading Dr. Agatston's book "The South Beach Diet" because he is a cardiologist and he explains METABOLIC SYNDROME or Pre-diabetes, from obesity, and how it causes heart disease. It really is educational in making me understand why it is so vital to be at a normal BMI, and not just for the outward looks. He explains WHY we crave foods, because of carbs and insulin, so I've found it very helpful

    Best wishes to you, but, I think you will be surprised at the speed of your recovery. I will wager the DVDs will collect dust, you may get through a book and the treadmill won't have time to be lonely.

    You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Good luck on your surgery! I don't even know what you are having done? Do tell. I am headed off to snoop around your site to try to find out!! Regardless, I hope you feel better and enjoy some time off!

    That's what I did too. DVD's, books, magazines, recorded tv shows. I would walk in my house during comercials until I felt strong enough to go outside, then around the block. Slowly built up my time and distance. Slowly is the key. My surgery was different but the same principle applies, I'm sure.

    Take care Don,
