Celebrating my birthday with scheduling a colonoscopy!!!
Thursday, September 03, 2009
My birthday is tomorrow and I celebrated it early by scheduling my very first colonoscopy!! I am so giddy I could pee my pants! I have no family history of problems nor am I having any problems so this is just your basic turning 50 (actually 51) baseline test. My husband is anxious to see what I am like coming out of anesthesia because he is an absolute hoot when he is coming to. I am thinking of this as a golden perhaps a good way to lose another pound or two. HEY! Ya gotta make it fun somehow.
I have been so happy with myself this week in the fitness area. I had a few times where I almost talked myself out of heading to the streets, but I did not. I used the strategy of telling myself just to take a 30 minute easy walk and end up taking it to at least 50 minutes. I am pretty impressed with that tactic. It works! Just check out my fitness tracker.
Another little celebration I am having with myself is the fact that I am now fitting into some what I call archived clothes. You know that pile in the back of the closet that yu outgrew a long time ago because they shrunk? Yea...those. I started out round two of SparkPeople this past May in size 14 and now...size 10. THAT feels great! Gosh I love this website!
