So I realise that I need to start making a change BEFORE surgery. My biggest issue is munching through chocolate - have just steadily eaten 200g of maltesers while watching a movie this afternoon. I'm guessing this just won't be possible after surgery, right? (bloody hope so!) But equally, I just need to stop doing this now...and while every morning I tell myself that "this is the day...today will be different", each day ends up being the same. I need to change!
I've got the pre-op appointment on Monday afternoon - not sure what will happen there as I haven't got my surgery date yet - but I just want to get there *now*. Feeling nervous that for some reason I'll fall at the last hurdle and not be allowed the surgery...just want to get it over and done with...
On to other things... tomorrow I'm starting a 30 day bikram yoga challenge (basically 30 times in 30 days). Bikram yoga is something I only started a few weeks ago (although I've done quite a bit of yoga over the last 10 years), and is strangely addictive. 1.5 hours of intensive yoga in a 45 C(110 F) room, always the same 26 postures, each one done twice.
It's slightly crazy (and I am no way as bendy as the picture - in my dreams!), but leaves me feeling weirdly energised. It's also supposed to be an appetite supressant, which would be a useful tool over the next few months for some pre-surgery weight loss. Means getting up at 6am before work to get to class - yikes, I like my sleep! Going to have to dig deep!
