Valentines Day ~ Lap Band Style

My Shit is tight.  Yes, that's right. The band is super tight ~ not in a bad way at all.

Yesterday I was fiending for some know the valentines ones with the sugary gooey pink frosting that every bakery has right now.  I held it off for four hours and then broke down ~ I figured if I wanted THAT bad to go for it.  I bought a bunch of them for the office and cut the tops off two ~ that's all I really wanted anyway ~ but like a good girl I ate my lunch first...sauteed Portobello mushroom ~ and dammit if I didn't fill up and have NO room for la band!  Don't worry I managed to get them down two hours later....
We went out last night for our Valentines dinner and once again my eyes are bigger than my stomach ...I had a few bites of salad and a few bite of Vegan Udon noodles and that was it.   I felt so full.  Like after thanksgiving full.
That really full feeling immediately made me feel guilty like I had just binged..but then I remembered that I hardly had anything to eat at all. So Yay!  Its working, big restriction!

I have been  lazy ass sloth ~ the opposite of a nastyass honey badger.  Haven't worked out since Saturday...eeek and its Tuesday!  I'm not sweating it too bad...sometimes I have to re-charge to go full steam ahead and its cold out.  So later today, I'll get in a run/bike.  Then going to spend the night with some girlfriends and having a Valentines "do-over" Tomorrow night with Mo. Long story....

I have realized that now i have do something about my shoulder.  Going to make an appt with an orthopedic surgeon next still really hurts ~ 4 months now ~ and I can't do boot camp (which blows!)
So hopefully some PT will sort it out.  

Today is a big day work wise ~ I have the opportunity to work with a very successful person and grow my business.  It could mean a lot more money (alot more work too) and it could also mean I'll be going to see you all in Chicago!  Fingers Crossed.

I can't wait to hear how Ronnie's Valentines Day vicariously once again!  Hope it kicks ass!


  1. Good luck today- I hope things go even better than expected at work.

  2. I can't wait to hear about Ronnie's Valenties day either!
    I've been exercising but eating like a garbage disposal! :) Good luck with the shoulder and finding your honey badger again!

  3. Glad your band is working good for you! Good luck with the work situation and hope your shoulder feels better soon!

  4. Glad you persevered with those cupcakes, sound delicious, definitely get the shoulder looked at,it's a drag when your body gives out before your mind!!:)
