Fresh Start.

Hello my darlings,

So yesterday's fill was rough.  As I said, they had to stick me four times to get into the port.  In fact, the first nurse couldn't get it, and she said she had never had to do it three times with someone before. I was like great, awesome to be your first.  Then she went and got the other nurse, who got it in the first try.  It wasn't sooo awful or anything... but now I know I'll get super bruised.  The other thing that wasn't so fun... On their scales they had me at 246.2.  I truly think that I wore really light clothes last time I was there, but no matter what, that's on record, up 3lbs from about 3 weeks before.  It's by no means tragic... But it was a bit discouraging.  

The good news in it, if there is some, is that I can't really say I was surprised.  I hate to use the terms "good" and "bad" about myself, like I was amazing on vacation, not just good... But my eating? Maybe not the healthiest choices.  Which sucks, it made me gain a bit of weight, but it's not as if I was busting my butt with workouts and sticking to a healthy diet and had gained... That, my dears, would have been tragic. 

Decided today was a new day.  Mom and I made meat-loaf (50%ground chicken 50% extra lean ground beef) and mashed potatoes for dinner last night, and had a reasonable portion of that for dinner, and then again for breakfast. Don't judge me, I like any food any time.  Then I... drumroll please, went to the gym.  

I've got real avoidance issues when it comes to exercise.  I do know that once I get back into it, I will be truly into it, I start to really like it.  But it takes a couple of weeks.  I know that, I've been there in the past.  But today I just got off my ass and decided to do something about it.  I went to the YMCA. I'll join next time I'm in, but today I got a free visit.  I did 20 minutes on the bike, then 20 mins of weights, then 20 in the pool.  It felt good. I couldn't do a ton, but I know anything is better than nothing, and it's a start.

Then, probably cause I was motivated by my work-out, I picked up a really yummy lunch, and I couldn't eat a lot of it at all.  Grilled chicken skewer, and a small caesar salad.  I made sure to put about a cup o food on my plate and I definitely got completely full.  Then because I have issues I proceeded to eat the low-fat cookie I had bought myself, but it was only 85cals and 3g of fat, it aint the end of the world.

Wow this is turning into a long entry.  I had other stuff to write about, but I'll save it for tomorrow.

No! Write it all now and them more tomorrow! What does your fill put you at? Why doesnt you doc do the fill? Good for you and the Y. When I lived in Kansas, I belonged to the Y and would swim a mile. I love anything that has to do with the water. The Y here in Pensacola is yucky though...ARGH!
