My IV bruise is looking darker as it heals but it's no longer sore. And I'm not excited about going back to work tomorrow. Weekends never feel long enough.
I decided to try yoga on Saturday morning. I recorded some shows I found on DirecTV. That lasted all of 10 minutes! It was really tough as a beginner. The workouts I'd recorded weren't really for beginners & it was hard to do the poses while watching to see if I was getting them right. So, after I picked up my Bountiful Basket I came home & did 45 minutes on the XBox Kinect. Go me!
My surgery center has a Facebook forum. One of the girls has started a fitness challenge called #operationactive365. So I've been working at it & today marks my 5th day. I also ordered a FitBit to keep track of my steps just like Dr. D recommended. Hopefully these efforts will get me to my 5-8 lb loss he wants to see from me. Plus, I feel good about it & am actually excited to keep up with it every day.
My next nutrition appointment is August 13th. So close, yet still so far. I am happy to say that I'm halfway through this process. That's a nice thought!
