Last night I got to meet Jenny and Nicole for the first time. We had such an amazing time, and it was like we've known each other forever. Nicole brought my 7 pairs of pants, which was AMAZING. They were all gorgeous work pants, that fit like a glove. Jenny actually gave me the pants off of her! Nicole had brought her some new pants, and the ones she was wearing were too big on her. The best part about the pair she gave me, is that they were once Catherines!! How inspiring to have jeans that were once Catherine and Jenny's, 2 of the most inspiring bandsters! It really is the sisterhood of the traveling pants, and I can't wait till I have the chance to share. The only bad part is, how short I am! I'm going to have to find a bandster that is around my height (5ft 1), so I can share my shortened pants. One of my favorite parts of the night was, I have NEVER tried ANY seafood...so Nicole and Jenny were determined that, that would be the night I would. With much hesitation I tried a bite of Jenny's bake stuffed shrimp, UH-OH! I started gagging, and as much as I tried to get it down I couldn't...the smell was too much for me. Out it came into my napkin...we died laughing. I'm glad no one was grossed out by this episode and they found it as funny as I did (at least I think they did).
On a good note, the scale gods are on my side finally! I am back down to 205lbs (my pre-holiday's weight). It has taken me awhile, but I am finally there! I have ranged from 211-207 since the holidays, so to finally be back where I was feels AMAZING. I have really been rocking my water intake and I think that is what gave me my extra push I needed.
Unfortunately last night was one of those nights I slept on my neck wrong. It is SOOO stiff, I can't turn without moving my entire body. Does anyone know any tricks to help loosen it up? Also, pre-op I was told to never take advil again, but that's all we have @ work. Has anyone tried taking advil since surgery? Will I do damage to my band taking it once?
This weekend my best friend is moving back home to Connecticut from Boston (this is going to be very hard for me) My friends and I are all going out to celebrate her last night here. We are going to a bar, and I'm in need of a new favorite drink. My go-to has always been cranberry and vodka, but that has just to many calories. I don't want to do beer or wine, I want some type of a mixed drink. What is everyones favorite band-friendly drink to get while out? I am up for anything!
Hope everyone is having a great day!
