Well...today is Sunday, October 14th. My usual day to food prep, make my plan for my workouts, enjoy Date Night, and get in the right mindset to have a successful week ahead.
While I'm still prepping and getting in a positive mindset...today feels a very different. I have only 3 days left before my surgery to exercise. Should I? Sunday is typically my rest day. But, I'll be off recovering for 6 weeks and docs orders are NO EXERCISE. That is putting me in a mindset of the "unknown". Will I recover fast? Will I be one that has complications? How will I "really" feel? Maybe I'll get released early to start a slow entry into exercise again?
Everyone keeps telling me I'll be fine. Everyone keeps telling me it's the best thing they ever did. So...I'm going with that. I'm leaving it in HIS hands and know that whatever is in the plan for me...will be.
I made some prepped meals. I have my stool softeners ready. I know my Tempurpedic bed will definitely be getting a fair share of my time at the end of the week. I've got my husband and mom that will be taking care of me Post Surgery. I know I'm in good hands.
I'm ready to move forward. I'm ready to get these blood sucking, pain producing, organ shifters, OUT OF MY BODY! I'm ready to FEEL what it's like to NOT have something EXTRA inside me pushing on places that shouldn't be pushed on. I'm ready to move forward with NOT having pain when Tony and I decide it's time to "love" on each other. (Goodness...I can't wait to be pain free).
I can't wait to hopefully not need indigestion pills after I eat. I can't wait to NOT be bloated ALL DAY, EVERY DAY - from who know what.
It's time...I'm ready! Bring it on! Wednesday...I'm treating you like a workout.
I'm prepared. I'm mentally ready. I'm going to crush it and FEEL better afterwards.
Here's to a GREAT week ahead!
Nope...I didn't measure the ingredients below. I just sprinkled all of that on my carrots and butter nut squash...and roasted in the oven. AMAZING! I can't wait to eat them this week.
