Lazy Days

Today was a mega lazy day.  Can't remember when I last had a long lie followed by a lazy breakfast, a long bath and didn't go outside all day.  Sooooooooo good and relaxing.

I cooked a batch of lentil soup, soaked beans for cooking a veg chilli tomorrow and sorted out my menu for the week..

Tomorrow I will go for a long walk and then curl up with the Sunday Times.

Life can be great.

Chillout Weekend

Attended a family funeral yesterday.  It was so sad, but most of all I felt for the husband left behind - they had been together 64 years!  I cannot begin to imagine how one deals with the loss of true life partner.

So, this weekend I am chillin' out, so to speak, and aim to just read, walk and do a bit of move watching.  I have a hospital appointment on Monday and hopefully pathology results from my recent surgery, so need to keep focused and not get too anxious.  Easier said than done!

Need to lose this fat suit

I'm obese.  I'm not happy with that and have no-one but myself to blame.  Tonight I have had enough of wearing this fat suit and am now planning out a healthy eating plan starting Saturday when I eventually return to my own home.

Thank goodness spring weather is here as it will make life easier.  Will be able to go out walking without freezing to death and salad days are nearly here.

Watch this space.............I'm gonna be an incredible shrinking woman.

Pain in the neck

Feeling good today, but my neck is very stiff and sore.  Look like I have a huge lump below my wound.  Guess as the rest of my neck is starting to not look so puffy, the swelling from my wound is more noticable.

Visited my GP who quickly told me no work for at least 2 weeks.  Look forward to some lazy mornings just sipping coffee and reading the newspapers.

Tomorrow will go for a short walk if it's dry.

Beyond Tired

Home post surgery and I am exhausted. Hospital is not a place to rest! Anyway, I look as if my throat has been slashed. Not a pretty look, I must say. Need to find me some spring/ summer scarves to camouflage my wound.

Should get pathology results next week. Fingers crossed that no further treatment is required. Meantime I'll rest a bit and get my neck moving.

Tomorrow I have surgery. A hemithyroidectomy to be exact. I am a wee bit anxious, but realistically it is no big deal. Problem is, I am a coward!

Decided that since I will be on a soft diet for several days it is good a time as ever to start getting serious about weight management. I am obese. I feel deeply embarrassed and even ashamed that 18 months ago I was underweight and in the interim I have developed this fat suit.

So, watch this space. Come the summer I will have the body of Beyonce and not a bouncing body. I am determined that when 2011 arrives I am not going to be 50 and fat.
