Blog updating and accountability.

There is a direct link from the number of times I update my blog and the number on the scale - when I'm posting frequently and staying accountable the scale goes down and when I don't - well you know...

There has been some stress eating in my life right now - I have to have surgery on Tuesday morning and the thought of having stuff done to my body kinda worries me. Once I get through that though it will be at least two weeks of no or very little activity. I had to give up my 11 miler on Saturday so I went out to the pond and cheered everyone out and then met everyone at the aid station and encouraged them from there as well! It was great still being out there. On Sunday I got in a bike ride (which was followed by a very large and high point meal) but I needed to be out with friends and get my mind off things for a bit. I have only had surgery once before and this is a more involved procedure so I'm nervous, but it will also be interesting to see how my body heals and responds to anesthesia now that I'm not Obese.

The one thing I am debating on is when should I step on the scale and asses the damage. I was thinking of doing it Tuesday morning before surgery since my wonderful hubby is going to be basically controlling my meals and will keep me on track (there is really nothing bad to eat in our house, I'm not going to be able to run out myself to get stuff and the youngin' isn't old enough to drive!) - but then again the hubster will also get me pretty much whatever I ask for since he does know I eat for comfort. I also probably don't need another thing hanging over my head on Tuesday morning.

On another note - on the first of January there was a 100 day challenge set up by John Bingham and it got HUGE! There was a calendar and a website and I was thinking - I wanna do that!! Well for me it lasted less than 3 weeks, but for my - Daughter in law Jess - she rocked it!! She completed the 100 day challenge and I'm sure she learned a lot in the process!

Don't worry about will all be fine! You are in good hands and I know Jeff will take care of you, and Logan too! Make sure to rest as long as they tell you too, it is important to heal. Thanks for the shout-out :D I am pretty proud of myself and I never thought I could have done it, but I did!
