It has been officially one week since my gallbladder has been dropped like a bad habit and I am happy to say that I am still pain free. The only pains I have are from the surgery itself. The four incisions are still a little sore. I went back to the gym yesterday and the doctor has given me the okay to walk on the treadmill and nothing else for six weeks. It is going to be a while before I get myself back in the groove of the gym, but I am determined. Last year I was going 5 to 6 times a week. There were times that stress had me at the gym 7 days a week but I am going to try not to overdo it. At least not yet! J
I have only been back to the gym for two days and I can say today was rough and I bet tomorrow will be even rougher. I fell asleep on the couch after dinner tonight. Since my pain has been so bad for the past six months, I haven’t been doing much of anything. I slept late and I didn’t eat the healthiest either. I fear that my unhealthy ways has been adopted by my dear hubby. We have been talking about getting healthier and I think that will help me greatly.
My hubby let me get my birthday present early this year. He got me a purple Garmin VivoSmart HR. I am in love with it so far and I don’t even have the whole thing figured out yet. I am running it side by side with my Jawbone UP24 to see how they compare. I went and picked it up before I went to the gym and could not wait to get home to charge it. It will need charged more than my Jawbone, since it has a display and gets notifications from telephone. Somehow I managed to turn that feature off and can’t get it back on but I will persevere. One of things that I like so far is that I can push a button on the Garmin and it will locate my phone. Y’all know how I can lose my phone.
So, weird thing happened today. I went to Walgreens on Dowlen to drop of a prescription for a new blood glucose meter and while I was standing in line some strange lady took my photograph. If she wanted to be stealthy, turn the dang camera sound off. I was dressed for the gym, black running shorts, black Call of Duty shirt and my bright orange Nike running shoes. It kind of made me mad, but I was not brave enough to ask her why she was taking my picture. I guess; if anyone finds my picture online somewhere, let me know. I am hoping I run into her again at the pharmacy and I am going to shove my phone in her face and take her picture. I thought about going to the manager of Walgreens to see if they see her taking the picture of me on their security cameras, but what can I do about it?
Everyone who knows me, knows how much I love God and have faith that he is there for each and every one of us, even you… yes, you. I have decided to ask God to help me lose the weight I need to and help with keeping motivated to go to the gym. I ask that if you have a few moments, please pray that I can do the things I need to do to become healthy. Thank you.
Well, I have procrastinated enough tonight. I need to work on getting Carrie Anne: The Beginning ready to edit.
Peace, Love, & Happiness,
