Silver Lining

Saturday, March 21, 2009

The days immediately following Monday's dental surgery found me couch-ridden. Literally. Slept a LOT. Dr. said nothing harder than yogurt. So, smoothies made with whey protein powder, juice or milk, fruit and my must-haves - Amazing Grass and Spirulina powder - have been my main sources of nutrition. Have been keeping my protein and calcium intakes really high to help the bones heal and have not been watching the calories so much. Didn't want to gain, but getting better is more important.

Felt kind of ok day before yesterday and worked in the yard for a while. Was back down yesterday - all day. Watching TV all day is just icky.

Hoping to get back into working out today or tomorrow.

The silver lining to all this misery - lost 3 lbs! emoticon

    That's a heck of a way to lose it! Hope you're back to yourself soon! Just don't push it too soon-give yourself plenty of time to heal up!

Monkey Wrench (ranty whine or whiny rant?)

Monday, March 16, 2009

Cotton-pickin', gosh dang it all. Was making some nice progress. Last week, my immune system failed and I caught a NASTY bug. Lost my voice, ran a fever, the whole nine. Near the end of last week, a tooth started hurting - one that has already had root canal treatment. I called the dentist, they got me right in and took a look. No swelling. Hmmmm.... maybe it's your sinus. You ARE sick, after all... Signed for some decongestant on the way home.

Woke up yesterday with a lump in my gum. Today it's bigger and hurts really bad. The good news - the virus bug has pretty much left the building. The endodontist worked me in - I leave for that in a few.

Keep a good thought that this is a seal that's lost or something that can be FIXED and not a manglement that's going to result in an extraction.

    What a bummer! I know how you feel, I was making progress too and then I got a bladder infection. Ouchie and antibiotics = bloat! I hope you feel better soon. I pray that the munchies don't kill either one of us, although with that dental issue I suspect you are safe from munchies for a while.

Happy Friday!

TOM is looming and there is a water party going on here, but I still managed to lose another half inch from my hips this week.

Didn't measure anywhere else cuz I don't wanna know about any setbacks no matter how temporary they are. I can see lines in my abs. Yes, there is flab hanging off those little muscles (pretty picture in your head? LOL), but they're there and THATS what counts.

The principle...

is competing against yourself. It's about self-improvement, about being better than you were the day before.

And, I must say that I am proud of myself for continually competing against myself from the day or week before.
