Big warm up today! 46 degrees

Wednesday, January 08, 2014

Starting at 11 degrees and will warm to 46 today, woo hoo. Less wind so maybe a walk at lunch? I plan to still dress in layers so maybe I can manage it. I am working a longer day today and actually the first day in the office. I have been working at out of office locations Monday and Tuesday.

Feeling good, still not making my daily step goal this year but I am doing more with going back to work. I have to prioritize my energy and strength still. I was a little unrealistic about 10,000 steps so soon but I will be there maybe next week. I still have two more weeks before the doctor releases me.

I realized yesterday I have a surgery anniversary coming up 1 year Jan 15 for RNY. 1-15 through 1-19 for the last of 5 surgeries due to the liver biopsy hemorrhage the third surgery opening me from sternum to belly button. January 28th is actually the day I was released from the hospital about 20 lbs more overweight due to all the fluids and medicine. I guess I am confused which was my official start date as I should have been on starting week three but started week one when I left the hospital. Since I have to pick a date I choose to pick the official date of the RNY January 15 as my anniversary :). I am presently down 104 lbs. but that is only a number the rest of my joy, energy, activity, healthy, strength far exceeds that number! Size 24 to a loose size 8 and maybe a 6 today. My size 10's need a belt to hold them on literally. I never expected this when I was laying down on the bed to get in those 24 lying to myself that I didn't need a larger size. Life is so much better despite the fact I am recovering from the hernia and tummy tuck surgery.

Still sparking and I hope you are too. Have a great day everyone!
