I started out my day this morning with hot yoga practice at 5:30 am. I took a couple of days off and boy did I feel it. My muscles felt tight, I didn’t feel as flexible and at times it felt like the heat was blowing right on my face. I did the best I could – some days showing up is half the battle. For me, I think I shouldn’t take more than one day off at a time. The same thing happened last week when I took two days off in a row.
I’m having a hard time concentrating at work today as well. It seems like I’m in a funk. I don’t know why. I just feel tired and a little lazy. At least I got my exercise in and I have plans to go for a walk later this afternoon…maybe that will clear this haze I seem to be in.
I just enjoyed a great breakfast morning…it was my usual egg with a diced Jimmy Dean turkey sausage pattie and topped with cheese. Today, I felt like having a little more, so I added about 1/8 of a bagel with some cream cheese. I used to love sitting down to a huge bagel store bagel – you know the ones…they are the size of a hubcap. I could eat one or two bagels in one sitting along with a cup of strong coffee. I can’t begin to imagine the calorie content in that, but I suspect it’s well over 500. So, I enjoyed a part of a bagel with some cream cheese and it hit the spot. I can’t drink my coffee while enjoying it, but I’ll save that for later. (The omelet looks big in the picture, but I promise it’s one egg…it was very thin before I folded it over!)
I took a picture of myself over the weekend as I do fairly often. I like to look at the progress pictures. Sometimes it feels like I’m looking at someone else when I see my “before” pictures. It’s strange, too, that my husband says he doesn’t remember me looking like that. Weird. So, here’s me on “decision day” 08/21/13 and this weekend, 09/14/14 at 10 months post-op…
