Hi all! Boy, this time of year is crazy, isn't it? I'm behind in every aspect of my life. I guess it keeps things from being boring!
I took a vacation day yesterday and I think it was a good thing because I woke up feeling puny. Sensing a sinus infection coming on, I doubled up my Claritin & broke out the nettie pot. :) Yesterday was also Fill Day. I have had a very successful month since I was last there, but I have been battling the hungries like crazy.
Last time, I was so paranoid about being too full that I asked him for just an itty bitty bit and he gave me .1 ccs. It helped a smidge, but my (too large) portions were still only lasting me 1.5-2 hours. I was excited to see that on their scales, I had lost 9 pounds! That felt good. Hot Doc even gave me a high five!
I told Hot Doc about my hungries and reminded him about my fear of being too tight. He checked me out under the fluoro and gave me 2.0 ccs. He said that at 2.5 things looked a little "eh", so he backed it down to 2.0. I only had liquids for the day so it was probably a very good thing I wasn't around people. Fill or no fill...a liquid diet makes me cranky!! It's not that I feel particularly hungry, although I did get that way right before lunchtime, it's just that I don't have a lot of energy. It's going to be tough to get through Jazzercise tonight.
This morning I had my morning coffee and then I tried Cream of Wheat for breakfast. It was my first time eating it. While I think it was a smart thing to eat on a fresh fill, it wasn't my favorite thing. Believe it or not, I actually prefer the oatmeal! Who would have thought it?
For lunch, we went to La Madeleine and I had a bowl of reduced fat Tomato Basil soup. Delicious!! They also had a new Yellow Pepper Soup and since the calorie count was reasonable, I picked some up for either an afternoon snack or dinner.
Today I'm sending out my Secret Santa gifts along with some Christmas and Pay it Forward gifts. I do love giving people stuff!! I'm really trying to focus on random acts of kindness this holiday season. You never know when you can put a smile on somebody's face.
