Took a picture of my beautiful charm bracelet tonight. I love that all the charms are so special to me and of course I love how sparkly it is! It’s really fun that my friends have one too, so we exchange charms on special occasions. I even got one for my mom. This is the Brighton collection, which I personally like better than Pandora. I think the beads are more fun!
I have to get blood work early tomorrow morning, which doesn’t bother me. The thing I hate most is the fasting! I have to fast for 12 hours which meant nothing but water after 7pm tonight. Of course that makes me want to eat everything, id kill for a glass of the diet iced tea that’s calling me from the refrigerator. Sigh. Oh well!
Went to my mother in laws to take pictures of the puppies to start advertising them for sale. They are so stinkin cute! We have two litters, 14 total puppies! If you know of anyone interested in a Border Collie pup, let me know!
My awesome husband sent me these beautiful flowers to work, just because! He is so sweet. He wrote on the card “I wish there were more ways to say everything you mean to me. Love always, Matt”
Isn’t he just the best. He makes my heart melt! I love you Matt!
Painted my nails tonight! Also had a lovely visit from my sister in law Amanda who brought over some fabulous dresses for me to try on for her upcoming bachelorette party this weekend! It will be a blast! Can’t wait! 🙂 Also worrying about my bestie who was in the hospital this morning due to a gallbladder attack, hope she gets better soon!
Despite today being a long and crazy day I still managed to eat healthy and exercise! I went to the surgeon today and he said I had a little inflammation. The opening from my last cyst/abcsess had not healed all the way so when pressure began to build yesterday the skin was weak and gave out causing it to drain which means we didn’t catch it quick enough to do surgery. This is both good and bad. Good because I don’t have to get surgery right now, but bad that I have to still be in pain. Anyway, having some cherries as an after workout snack while watching Friends!
I saw a nutritionist/dietician this past weekend. We scrutinized my meal plan, which surprisingly enough I was doing a decent job. However, since the only dairy I really take in is the small amount of milk in my occasional cereal I need more calcium. So she suggested these chews! Calcium never tasted so good! They are like little Carmel candies. Yum. I also don’t get enough protein so she suggested some protein powder, so I bought that too. She told me to get benefiber as well, but I’m going to pass on that for the moment!
On another note, it feels like my pilonidal cyst/abscess is coming back, which means I could be having surgery in the near future. Not looking forward to the literal pain in the a**. Not to mention that they will be leaving the wound open (do NOT google pictures of that, big mistake. Totally grossed out and feel sorry for my husband who will have to pack it 3 times a day!) and I will have a drainage hose sticking out of it, also known as a wound vac. Fun times, fun times. Could my health suck anymore these days? Ugh.
We played The Settlers Of Catan tonight! It’s so much fun, and I totally kicked ass and won. Yay me! I get happy inside when I beat my husband at strategy games as he is usually much better at them then me. Lol!
