CECILY55's Feb 2009 CalorieKing Blog

Saturday and tomorrow is a brand new month!

Saturday, February 28th 2009

Again. I'm so lazy I think it's cool to be able to reuse a BLOG title.

Yesterday was not my day. I was tired and felt a little yucky--sort of like one of those blow-up Christmas santas that is beginning to lose his air: Deflated!! Maybe I'm coming down with a cold, maybe it's just hold-over from surgery, maybe post-op depression, who knows.

Today will be better! I feel pretty good this morning, a little tired, but OK. I AM going to eat better today--yesterday was kinda outta wha...

February 27--the last Friday in February

Friday, February 27th 2009

I have a soapbox that is beginning to surface and I got to work on this before it gets out of hand.

Subject: Health and Moral Responsibility

I think that being as healthy as possible is everyone's responsibility. We owe it to ourselves, our families, our communities, our states and our country to be as healthy as possible. Health care costs are killing this country and it's our collective fault. Diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, tobacco-related illness are largely manageable...

Thursday, February the 26th

Thursday, February 26th 2009

Today was a pretty good day. I was able to exercise some (intensity is sort of questionable) without completely falling apart. I get tired, but it's just being tired--not that sick-tired feeling I had earlier this week. I ate pretty good, too. Calories about 2000 +/-, probably more reasonable than the 2500 I was eating earlier this week. I will NOT gain a bunch of weight because of this unexpected recovery thing.

This weekend I'm going to try to find my cousin. I need to locate all of...

Bad example--Wednesday, February 25

Wednesday, February 25th 2009

Mickey Manytoes is not setting a good example--he's just lying on my lap, purring. He doesn't even look guilty--even though he should be out hunting mice or something. His figure is starting to tell the tale, however: he's gained about a pound since he came to us from the shelter last fall.

I go to the doctor in about an hour--this visit is the post-op visit to the surgeon. Larry is going to take me because today just isn't my day--I feel like a bug smashed on a car windshield. I can ha...

One day at a time--Tuesday, February 24

Tuesday, February 24th 2009

I am tired AND bored. I also feel about as energetic as a limp dishrag--this sucks!! But whining doesn't really seem to be getting me anywhere, so maybe I ought to do something more constructive. I know--when I finish this ode to self-pity, I'll take a shower and go to the store. I need some different deode and some OJ.

I did finish typing Larry's initiation part so I'll print that out for him. I have a doc appointment at 2:45; when I get back from that, I'll do dishes if I have the en...
