Mike.... Mike.... Guess what day it is?!

Off to work for another fun-filled day, have a couple of errands to run that I keep saying I'm going to do but don't seem to get around to.  If I want good coffee tomorrow morning, a stop at the coffee store is a must-do! Home to put the finishing check on an assignment, and I am sincerely hoping for a very early night!

9.5 years post-op

Happy Hump Day!

So, since my big race I have fallen hard off the wagon. Well, sort of. Basically I am sometimes still eating like I'm training hard....and that has shown on the scale :(

It's always hard to switching back to bariatric lifestyle eating after hard training, but it's been harder this time. Maybe because it was such a huge race?

Anyhow I'm posting here to give myself that kick I need. I don't post when I'm training because you all don't want to read about peanut butter and jam sandwiches eaten during an 8 hour bike ride lol

B: protein coffee, 1 egg mixed with avocado and lemon juice 

s: last rep beef jerkey

l: chicken breast and salad

s: fruit of some sort and beef jerkey

d: spaghetti squash and meat sauce

walk at lunch

Happy hump day indeed. Karen I hear you re planning stuff and then not doing it.  Kelly I wonder if the time of year is effecting your eating with the day's getting shorter?  Just work and the gym tonight.  I have a shoulder injury so I am limited in my weights until that heals but can still do the rest of the body.

Good Night?/Day Tanya, hope you get a good sleep  

Have you tried wearing earplugs and a sleep mask? or warming up your bed before you get in with a heating pad or ho****er bottle.

Working nights is so bad when you are not sleeping well.  Wishing you sweet dreams...

I am truly lucky with the job I have..it is not strenuous..and there are about 6 people that have already been through the surgery, 2 people that are about 2-3 months out, so they are very understanding if I need to get up or whatever. It is also a desk job..I am going to do the modified for a couple of days, if i can handle it Ill go back full time :)

I took vacation for a week (while in hospital etc.) and then I "worked from home" for two weeks and then went back at three weeks post Op.  the first week back (last week) Kicked my ass, I was exhausted constantly.. just not getting enough calories to keep you fueled!! This week I actually feel back to normal (and am eating about 900 calories so at least double what I had been eating)....

Definitely take it easy, if you've got the time, use it!!!  It's getting closer!!  yay
