I'm simply exhausted at this point - and today has been a pretty down day... I am almost positive that tomorrow will be a "mental health" day off from work - because I just can't do it. I need a day to sleep in - since I haven't had any day that I've been able to successfully nap.

We made it to church today, which might have been a little much for John - but I think he was glad to get out and see everyone. Our message this week was about something I've been kicking around in my head for a post - so I'll try to flush through some of that tomorrow.

This evening, we went out for our walk and I pushed him too hard on that too. I went on a path that I'd forgotten about, and it had a pretty steep hill... we made it and all is fine, but we won't make this route again for a while. He was amazed at how quickly I'd forgotten how I used to struggle with that path - but I honestly didn't remember. I wish he would have said something, but now I know, and we'll wait until he's ready to hit that one again.

Not much else has been going on today - we watched Backdraft, which I hadn't seen before... watching Kurt Russell die twice in the same movie sort of stunk - but it was a good movie other than that. We've also watched a couple of Lifetime movies today as well, and now we're listening to the Back to the Future trilogy playing on Encore while we're both using our laptops.

I'm seriously considering doing the 5 day pouch test to get back to the basics on my weight loss surgery rules... it's just a matter of figuring out when the best time to do it would be. The funny thing is that I feel like I'm already noticing a difference in my pouch the last few days - it seems like I eat fine all day, but when I get to dinner - I can barely eat a thing. I don't know what that is all about, but I have been having some digestive issues - so I'm sure it'll figure itself out eventually.

I didn't hear from my endocrinologist's office yesterday - so I'll be calling them first thing in the morning to try to get some answers on my blood work. I wonder if they called and left me a message at the office last week, but typically they call my cell phone... so we'll see what they have to say as soon as I can reach someone over there.

I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend - ours has been nice, and I'm looking forward to not getting out of my pajamas tomorrow... or at least not anymore dressed than I have to be to go walking with John. Unless, of course, I have to go by the pharmacy - but then again - workout clothes are okay for the pharmacy.


  1. Kim, my pouch and I have days like that a lot! What peeves me off is that I can nibble on crap easily, but when I sit down to eat dinner, I can only manage a few bites of protein. I can't work that one out, unless the protein just settles heavier or something. Weird.

  2. Hope you enjoy staying in your PJs today. We all need days like that.
    My pouch does the same thing.. I can munch away and when it's time to eat a meal, I'm not able to eat much. All the lovely things we get to look forward to! haha
    Have fun today! :)
