My non blog worthy day

Continue reading only if you are seriously bored.

I had my first non-Dr appointment outing. You know just going out to go out. So I shower, recover a bit, and head over to the new mostly organic supermarket they just opened by my house. My Mom drove but getting in and out was interesting. For those of you that don't know I have a little 2 seater which is hard enough to get in and out of when you are healthy. It took several maneuvers but I did it. BTW ass first works best.


The store is great. Within walking distance of my house which will be a nice when I'm better. I got a little shaky a few times and was thankful for the shopping cart. I did ok though. I bought a bunch of yummy things so it should be a good food porn week.

My only other stop was Starbuck's where I ordered my usual a Tall SF Cinnamon Dolce Soy Latte. I take one sip and realize something is terribly wrong :) I question... are you sure this is right? I get "Eeekkk I forgot the shot of espresso" So she gives me the screw up as a freebie which by the way was yummy. Basically a steamed soy milk with SF Cinnamon Dolce syrup in it. I will be making these for myself this winter.

Recovery report: My leg swelling is going down but that's because it's all flippin moved to my my mid section and back now. It's so bizarre everyday the swelling is somewhere different. I feel like a big swollen bruise. Good news: Last night when my pain pill had kicked in I applied pressure on that area of fluid that was gathering on my arm. I know. I'm psycho. I heard a gush. Nothing came out but it's flat now. So far my arms are my favorite part of this. They didn't hurt as much as I thought they would and they look good already.

I warned you this wasn't a blog worthy post. I have a few new wls friendly products to tell you about and few new recipes to share. I just didn't have enough umpff. Sorry.

Highlights of the day:

* Yummy Roast Chicken for dinner with a baked Sweet Potato with Butter and SF Maple Syrup.

* I had a really nice email today from a blog reader ;) Thanks.

* I hurt less than yesterday.

Listening to: "And We Danced" The Hooters. What ever happened to them?

I just wanted to say that I did read this post, because I'm interested in hearing how you're surviving post-op!

Also, I wanted to add that between you and many other OHers, I've been converted to the Cinnamon Dolce Latte! I'm on my pre-op diet, but skim milk is okay, so when a friend wanted to go to Bux Saturday, I got a non-fat, SF, no whip Cin Dolce latte. Lordy are they good!!! Even though it's 19g of carbs, it's 12g of protein.

And, I think for once in my life, I prefer the hot version to the cold. I had the same thing today, but iced (I usually prefer cold coffee), and it didn't compare to the hot version. The cinnamon dolce flavor really is divine!
