These Are Not My Pants (or are they?)
I haven't been to Curves in a few weeks. I injured my shoulder and am now going to physical therapy. My diagnosis is internal rotation tendonitis. I'll be going 3 days a week for a month and hopefully that'll relive the swelling, get rid of the pain and strengthen my shoulder. Since I can't take NSAIDS, they are going to try a couple topical medications.
I had to give a persuasive speech for class last week. I chose the topic, "Bariatric Surgery - It's Not The Easy Way Out." I think I did very well with it, used very convincing statistics and people were impressed with before/after pictures. Especially the ones where I and a friend lost a lot of weight and then regained it all back. I got an A on the speech!
In my last blog entry, I promised a couple product reviews. I've been using Celebrate Vitamins Grape Flavor. I've found that I can tolerate them a lot better than the Bariatric Advantage. I absolutely love the Celebrate Hot Cocoa Calcium. It's a little gritty but it's delicious.
I recently switched from a Blackberry to a Droid 2. I'm using a couple of applications that have made life as a bariatric surgery patient so much easier. One is Drinking Water. It reminds me throughout the day to drink my water. The other is Med Minder. I put my meds and vitamins in and it'll remind me at points throughout the day (of my choosing) when I'm supposed to take them. I haven't missed any since I started using it, I highly recommend it!
