Just touching base with a bunch of little things. First of all, my band is giving me good restriction although my weight isn't going down at all. I still have that 0.1 cc waiting at the doctor's office but I don't think a fill is needed. I've had a couple of painful pb's in the last week so I am being very selective about what I eat. Each day is different. Some days I can eat about a cup of food and other days I have to stop at a few bites. Crazy little band. But I am not discouraged, just curious. Please don't be the start of another plateau. God knows I have had enough of those!
Monday night, I was so sore, it hurt to turn over in bed! But all that pain feels good in a bizarre sort of way. I am banking on the fact that all those muscles are growing and holding water and sabotaging my weight going down. I go back on Wednesday at 5:00 for more torture.
The other news this week is that I started my new job on Monday. I have a lovely little cubicle and even a window. The girl I am replacing is having a baby so we have only been able to spend a few days together. I am sure all hell will break lose next Monday when she is gone. Then I will have to put on my analyst cap and figure out just how to manage things. My new boss is a good resource so I don't feel too stressed. There is a large IKEA store across the street so I popped in to browse and get some lunch. I was only able to eat about half of the small quiche I bought and had to bring the salad home. Maybe I should have tried the meatballs and mashed potatoes.
And for those that don't know, Thursday, July 1st is Canada Day. Lots of BBQ's, fireworks and drinking. Since I live in Canada's capital, Ottawa, we have a big celebration on Parliament Hill but I have only been once. I don't like crowds and it is swarming with people. Even Queen Elizabeth II is here to visit Canada and join in the festivities. But it is a holiday and I am also taking Friday off for an extra long weekend. So bring on the party!
