Who Knew


I can run y'all!!! Oh my goodness. I was exercising this weekend and while I was walking I just broke out into a run. It wasn't for a long time or fast mind you, but it was a run nonetheless. I'm so proud of myself. I didn't exercise at all Friday (unless you count walking around Walmart for an hour exercise - if so I will add that, y'all let me know), but Saturday and Sunday I kicked it into high gear. Well as high as my gears could go that is. See all week I had been doing my walk and only doing a mile, well Saturday I stepped it up and decided that I needed to do more. So I did 2 miles. Yes, me!! I couldn't believe it. Sunday I did 3 miles and I ran a little each day!!! I'm so proud of myself.

On the band front. I am just now starting to get hungry. Right now I feel my stomach growling. I had a protein smoothie for breakfast this morning and it filled me up, but that was at 7:30. Now its about 15 till 10 and I'm more than slightly hungry. I'm not famished, by any means, but hungry nonetheless. I'm drinking water to see if that feeling will be curtailed some. I had my first bout with head hunger last night. I wasn't really hungry, but wanted to go and eat more Baked Ricotta. Oh my goodness how good it was. One of my main problems in the past was overeatting because the food was so good. See I can cook. I am no chef, but I can hold my own in the kitchen. Therefore, when I cook I put my foot in it and oh how delish it can be. I want to just eat it all up. So yesterday I used will power and restraint. When it got a little bad, I got some sugar free chocolate pudding and mixed some of my chocolate truffle protein in it and OH MY GOODNESS, it was like I was having a premier desert. It was SOOOOOOO GOOD!!!

Anyway thats it for today. I don't have much, but wanted to post something.
Happy Monday!!

Congrats on the running! That's awesome! It all starts with one step...

As for the hunger, ah, how I don't envy you bandster hell. But it won't last forever. Use that will power...and sooner than you realize, you'll forget what this time period feels like...

You're doing great! Have you heard of the Couch to 5k program? It gets you to running 5K by the end of 9 weeks (it took me 10, I had to repeat a week) and has made a runner out of me. I would highly recommend it.

Keep up the great work and have a fabulous Monday!

Bianca I will check that out. Thanks for info.

It's so awesome, to feel healthy and athletic. It starts with just a little, and then you push yourself to go a little further, and then a little further than that. Small steps! Woohoo!

You go you little runner girl...that's awesome.
Yes, you will soon be in "bandster hell"...that period post op and pre first fill where the hunger kicks in and there's no tool to help you combat it.
This too shall pass...just hang in there cupcake.

Yea for running. I don't think I could run unless I was being chased by a serial killer. But then again, I'd be one of those stupid girls who always trips and falls and twists her ankle and gets killed. So really, what is the point of unnecessary running? LOL :)

Wow thats great! I'm nervous to start running but I'd really love to.

As for the hunger you are entering Bandster hell I'm going through the same thing and thats what everyone told me that I was entering bandster hell. Hang in there.

Thanks Cindylew

Stephanie, you crack me up for realz.

Michelle, we in this together. Its like I'm getting hungry every 2 hours. Oh well. No pain no gain. My surgeon says it's good to be hungry. I started laughing at him when he said that pre-band. I'm using that as a mantra to get through. We will see how well it works.

Way to go!! The little engine that could reminds me that I can do more things than I thought. Congrats!!!

I remember I used to play this mind game with myself when I first started running. I would pick and object and run to it. Then I would walk for a bit and then pick another object and run to it. Before I knew it I was running a 5k. Keep at it!
