I'm starving

I want breakfast. I want a banana and some Greek yogurt. Its down stairs in the fridge. AND I CAN'T HAVE ANY! Today I am off for my lovely thoracic radiofrequency denervation for which I will be sedated so no food after midnight or water after 2 hours before check in. The whole point of the sedation is so I don't feel it or as they put in vague medicalese 'should not feel anything'. I am overjoyed to think about this. But I check in at 830 this morning and will take 1/2 an ativan when I leave so I don't stress as much.

When I come home, by lunch time, I will have chocolate brownie ice cream and then possibly a turkey sandwich, grilled with cheddar cheese, on rye, with mustard. I will start with the ice cream because I deserve it after the needles adventure. Then get to the turkey sandwich. In the meantime, I will just go with the old dieting trick of drinking another glass of water so I feel full.

I was told after this procedure I will need to take it easy for the rest of the day. Well its a gloomy rainy day so I think herbal tea while watching cooking shows will make me feel better. I also am supposed to do some work from home today. I figure I can be productive for a bit. The cat won't mind, he can hang out with me - he likes that. He thinks he is getting attention while he sleeps.

But in the meantime, my husband thinks we need to leave in an hour so he isn't late for work. I still have to take a shower, get dressed, and do all my (damn) exercises. So perhaps its time to motivate.
