Tunes for Tuesday: Glorious, by Macklemore, feat. Skylar Grey

Guys, this is my theme song right now. I keep walking around singing it because I"m feeling MUCH better after the gastric bypass surgery. I felt like I had turned a corner this past Saturday, but yesterday I realized I turned an even better corner. My tiny meals are staying down, I'm sleeping somewhat better, I'm starting to move more and get more stuff done around the house and -- oh yeah -- I'm down 20 pounds from just a few weeks ago, with my bodyfat percentage going from 52 percent to 45 percent. Boom!


Tunes for Tuesday: Whatever It Takes, by Imagine Dragons

I was discussing carbonated drinks and caffeine with some friends on Facebook earlier today, and how they're off limits for some time after bariatric surgery. While I LOVE coffee and just put a new canister into my Sodastream, I started tapering off on caffeine this past week, getting ready for no caffeine for awhile. And right now, the only fizzy thing I'm drinking is kombucha. I'm hoping I can let it get a bit flat and just drink half a bottle at a time after awhile. I'm not sure what else I'll be eschewing immediately before and after surgery, but I keep humming Imagine Dragons' song "Whatever It Takes," because I know it'll be worth it in the long term.


Tunes for Tuesday: Cult of Personality, by Living Colour

Oh, hi there! I haven't blogged much the past few weeks. I had a killer head cold, then my eyes went all wonky and I got one of them lasered (It's still a little hard to see the computer screen but I'm coming for you next month, left eye!), then I got caught up on writing and am working on other, much bigger "stuff," now it's Thanksgiving week. But this song keeps popping into my head, especially after what happened a few weeks ago.
