I was sitting downstairs yesterday and saw these pictures of me that my Mom has framed all over so I took one with my grandmother and used it as a comparison with now. The original picture is from 1995.
It doesn’t even look like me! So I took a picture of a picture of me in 8th grade and I swear my chin is smaller now than it was then. Is that even possible?
Also one from my cousins wedding with my parents in 1995.
I used to hate pictures and I’m starting to like them. I love comparing pictures from back before surgery to now definitely and using picjointer to make those comparisons.
Yesterday I took an actual rest day. The gym was closed for Easter so I did not exercise (I did do arm exercises with 5 lb dumbbells for a whopping 15 minutes) plus I ate a ton of carbs and went WAY over my calories. I probably gained a few pounds too. It was my last day for carbs so I took full advantage. No big deal. I’m on keto as of this morning so I’m not concerned. I ate Girl Scout cookies and crackers and enjoyed every single carb. No guilt here! Would you feel guilty? If so, Why?
I also cooked for the week yesterday. I made chicken, boneless BBQ pork ribs, steak, and meatballs (I forgot to take pictures of them before I packed them away in the fridge other than the chicken). I bought lettuce and celery on Saturday so I will have more vegetables and fiber with all this meat (peanut butter or cream cheese in celery…YUM). I also bought LaCroix water. I haven’t tried it yet other than berry flavored and it was pretty good. Do you guys like it?
I have to go back to the podiatrist for my 2nd appointment of therapy and get shots this morning. My toes have been tingling since the first treatment. I think I remember her saying that’s normal and a good thing. I need to ask if I can go to the gym after a treatment. When I don’t exercise, I feel like I am really in need of going, it’s like an itch. I am taking my vitamins with me so they can compare theirs with mine too. They are supposed to be making sure I can take them with my stomach surgery. Then I can come home for a little bit and then might have to take the husband of the couple to the doctor. He called last night telling me he’s been sick and needs to go to the doctor. At 87 years old, he really does need to get right in to see the guy. I hope the doctor says it’s okay.
Miss Priss sent my son a thank you note with a $5 check inside for finding her sunglasses in my car. That was really sweet! He wants to cash it. I told him I would deposit it and he freaked out until I told him I would give him the cash. So silly.
I will be going to Starbucks after I drop my son off at school for an espresso shot for some caffeine. Maybe one shot of that will keep the caffeine withdrawal headache away. I’m glad I used last month to up my water intake. Now I’m used to drinking 8-10 cups a day so that’s a good amount and will help me not have keto flu or such a bad caffeine withdrawal headache.
I watched Can’t Pay, We’ll Take it Away on Netflix yesterday. Does this happen here? Do we have bailiffs go to peoples homes in the states? I’ve never seen anything like this. And they can make you claim bankruptcy? Wow. I also watched a couple episodes of a Secret Shopper show in the UK. It was really neat! My friends in the UK, let me know if you’ve had to deal with this.
I didn’t go to sleep until around 11pm. Up at 5:30 like usual. I hope everyone has a great Monday. Motivational Monday coming later!
