Am I healthy?

Saturday, April 11, 2015

I went to the hospital for my pre-operation appointment. They asked so many question, to which I answered "no" expect for having high chloesterol (on medication), being overweight/obese (they know that from the stats), and overdrinking (obvious from my answer but they didn't say anything).

They didn't even ask me if I did any exercise... I guess that's because their main concern is if I'm gonna die from the anesthesia. Not in my plans, but I guess I get kinda crazy thinking if I should say my "goodbyes" to loved ones "just in case"... it's definitely not likely but it does happen...even to people I know (remotely).

I go in for surgery next Friday.. and will be hospitalized for 3 days, off work for 6-8 weeks. Yes, it "routine abdominal surgery" but I am nervous... I won't be able to do any exercise for 6 weeks! It's really hard to get back into the groove, even after 10-14 day vacation!

Yet, this is the way it will be.

Bad on me, that I've already not made myself do my regular gym regieme.. At work I've chosen to go for lunch with current/former colleagues rather than the gym because I have more of an emphasis of being social.

anyhow, I apologize in advance it I disappoint any NN. I realize that, during my recover period, I will be able to control my eating, not my exercise... but I also know that I've relied on exercise to help my overall calorie intake.

so.... we'll see where it goes,,,,

still I loved the NN warriiors (and all on SP)and hope to keep intouch!
