I've been lazy!

I go in for my 6 week checkup tomorrow, even tho it was 6 weeks on Monday since my hysterectomy.  This will be the physical exam to make sure I'm all healed inside and hopefully will get the blessing to resume normal life!

I confess I mowed the lawn.  I did half yesterday and the rest tonight.  I blame the other 2 bums in my house for not doing it for for me.  Yet again, I lost the waiting game and did something that they could have, but didn't.  So if I have ill-effects from this - you know who will get the evil eye!
Love this face!

I'm actually feeling quite good.  I really haven't had any significant belly pain or anything since like week 2 post op.  Twinges here & there, but that's all.  It's hard to remember that I have had significant internal organs removed!  Of course I'm feeling some aches right now since I always do after mowing the lawn, but nothing that feels surgery-related.

Anyhoo, I got the guilt trip, "we miss you" card from Weight Watchers yesterday.  I'm ready to go back, I think.  I'm shooting for the September 6 meeting.  That'll be 2 months since I went last.  I don't feel guilty about missing 2 months.  I had cancelled my credit card back in June (someone in Indiana tried to charge $200 worth of stuff at a Dollar Tree on it!!) and forgotten that my monthly pass was paid for on that.  I got emails from WW about it while I was in Charleston with Miss Angela & her dance team, but they went into a special email folder that I didn't look at when I was on my phone.  So yeah, my monthly pass got cancelled.  I did get 2 meetings in after Charleston before we figured out what had happened, but by then I knew I was having surgery, so I let it be. They have some good deals going on, so I'll have to take advantage.  

Sigh.  What a time to go back, right when this has happened...
Pumpkin Spice Ice Capp time!  

I'm going to have to start planning my food better.  I've been eating oatmeal for breakfast so long that I'm getting tired of it.  I switch between strawberries and PB2 and occasionally maple syrup in it for flavor, but it's still getting old.    But it's quick & easy to make the night before and take it to work with me to eat at my desk in the am.  But yawn! 

I've been getting a few walks in, and dragging Randy along with me.  I know he's just going to humor me, but it doesn't hurt him to go, either!  I noticed my FitBit step count has gone up each week, so that's a good thing!  My heel spur has been acting up, but I wonder if its because I haven't been taking my Triflex (glucosamine stuff from GNC) since the surgery. I haven't had any knee issues ~KNOCK ON WOOD~ but this has been annoying.  I have to flex & point my feet before I get up in the morning or I seriously cannot put weight on my right foot at all!  Guess I should restock up on that. 

So it's getting late, I'll post again after my checkup!
