5 days out from surgery, 4 days from leaving for Mexico; alone.
I've been seeing people post about the Couch to 5k program (C25k) a bit lately and it's gotten me thinking about how NOT possible that is right now. I wish my back and knee would let me do the C25k program!!! I think once I've lost a good amount of weight those types of activities will become possible again. Sure, I may still need to wrap my knee, use a ton of IcyHot and pump myself full of Tylenol... but it'll be POSSIBLE!
For the first time in my life I am HOPING my period comes REALLY late this month... I am supposed to start the day before I leave for Mexico; which will mean being on my period for travel down, surgery, post-op (trying to deal with period while I have 5 surgical wounds on my abdomen... ouch), AND my flight home. Oh god... PLEASE let me skip my period due to stress or some such this month!!! Please. Please.
Aside from those things my mind is now deciding it's time to REALLY start planning/packing for my trip. Actually packing, not just talking about it. I need to pick which suitcase to take, which if any carryon to bring, and actually PACK them.
So far here's what I will bring:
Slippers (slip on Croc slippers)
4 loose/comfy outfits (one that is warm/layerable for travel back home)
My big giant oversized black sweater (fits like a bathrobe)
Toothbrush & toothpaste
hairbrush and hair ties
My aussie 3 minute miracle conditioner (weather changes dry my hair out BADLY)
Bone Broth powder (for travel days, airports are harsh on clear liquids I think)
Pill Crusher (for crushing pain meds OMW home, etc)
Cell phone and charger
MY pillow (can't imagine getting stuck with a crappy pillow the whole time I'm there)
Yep, I think that covers my packing list. Here's hoping I can get all of that into my small carryon sized suitcase LOL... Because my medium one just broke on my trip last month and my large one is... very large.
Random thought that hits me at weird moments throughout the last few days..."Am I crazy for doing this? Can't I just continue on the pre-op diet and lose all the weight and NOT have to have surgery? " And my answer to my self, "You're not nuts. If you could have done this any other way you would have by now, and the pre-op diet is NOT sustainable long term and would be really unhealthy".
5 more days... Wow.
