LATEST BLOG ENTRIESSurgery went well, but I’m hurting!
OW! The pain was tolerable for the first few hours after my surgery, but then it started getting worse and worse. By the time I went to bed last night just the act of sitting down, getting up or turning over would literally take the breath out of me. I had a tickle in my throat and tried to cough last night and felt like someone stuck a knife in my gut. I’m far from… [Read more]

They changed the time for my hernia surgery again – now it’s at 9:30 AM (this morning), so I need to be there by 7:30 AM. This is the third time it’s been changed. Really, what’s the point of having a time scheduled? Well, I need to go now. I don’t know when I’ll be able to update again so until then take care, keep working hard and eating right!

Pre-op went well – surgery is on for tomorrow.
Yesterday’s pre-op went well. My surgery was bumped from 9:00 AM until 11:00 AM for some reason. I’ll have to leave here about 8:00 AM because they want me there 2.5 hours before the surgery. At least now I won’t have to get up at 4:00 AM and will have time to update this page before I leave. I’m going to be really thirsty because nothing to eat or drink after midnight is allowed. I’m… [Read more]

Pre-op this morning.
I’m running late for my pre-op, so this is going to be a short update. I’m meeting with the surgeon and anesthesiologist this morning to go over the operation. That’s really all I know about the pre-op, except that I can’t be late! I’ve got to get out the door, see you tomorrow…

Tomorrow morning pre-op; Site updates to continue while recovering?
Tomorrow morning I’m going in for my pre-op so, depending on how late I’m running, the daily update to this site will either be very early or a little late. Everyone keeps asking me if I’m nervous about the operation. The answer is, “No, I’m not.” About the only thing stressing me out is knowing I won’t be able to do cardio for at least 2 weeks, and knowing I won’t be able to lift… [Read more]

Last night’s cheat meal; how I prepare my pizzas.
After the past week at work, I enjoyed last night’s cheat meal even more than usual. I’m as bloated as fat tick this morning, but I don’t care! We had a nice vintage reserve red wine along with our doctored California Pizza Kitchen pizza, followed by a big bowl of ice cream. BTW, I say “doctored” because I don’t just pull the pizza out of the box and cook it. They are good like that,… [Read more]

Friday at last!
Friday’s finally here! I thought this week would never end. I’ve got a lot to do today, but thankfully I should be able to take most of the weekend off. I’m going to go do my cardio and get started – the sooner I finish my work the better.

No leg workout today.
The long hours and stress from work are taking their toll. I’ve lost some weight this week and I’m feeling a little under the weather this morning. I can’t afford to get sick right before my surgery, so I’m going to skip this morning’s leg workout because recovering from leg day takes a lot out of me. Besides, as Lisa frequently points out, I shouldn’t be doing heavy squats and stuff like that with a… [Read more]

Work, work, work ^ 2.
Work is really kicking my ass this week. I’m going to go get my workout in and hope my Nextel doesn’t interrupt me. Have a great day (is it Friday yet?!)

Work, work, work.
Sorry for all the short and cheesy updates lately. I’m afraid this is going to be another one. Things are really cooking at work and I’ve got a lot of extra stuff that needs to get done before my surgery next week. I’ve got to get to it, work is calling as I’m typing this…
