9.5


My how time flies.  Tomorrow I can say I had surgery a week ago.  It went well, and though I could have been outpatient, I had a lot of pain in my shoulders so I decided to stay overnight and take advantage of the pain meds getting shot directly into my bloodstream.  :)  It hasn't been an easy week, physically or emotionally.  I am on a liquid diet until 2/15, and I miss food!  Then there have been some other physical discomforts, but all in all I am doing great, and am actually going back to work tomorrow.  I am really looking forward to getting back into a normal routine. 

I leave for Vegas in two weeks, to the first ever Art & Soul retreat there.  Art & Soul has a theme every year, and this year it's Art & Soul in Wonderland, hence the striped legwarmers.  I have been wearing them around the house this week to motivate me and also to keep me warm....I don't think I've been truly warm all week!  I also have plans to make a Mad Hatter hat, ala Johnny oh-how-I-love-him Depp, but we will have to see how much energy I have in the coming days.  And now I must get started gathering supplies for my trip, because they will actually be shipped this Friday!

Oh, and I have lost 9.5 lbs since Monday, February 1st.  Yes, 9.5 lbs people!!!!

Namaste!

I have been looking for a good book to help me get through my diet. In the end I googled it and found this site http://www.hungryforweightloss.com.

They are giving away a free ebook called "365 tips for healthy living". I didn't expect it to be any good because it's free but it's actually brilliant so I thought i'd share it here :)
