Nurses Be Trippin' and last meal food porn!

Last Monday I made all my pre-op appointments... got the time scheduled off through work.
Pre-op testing at surgery center 6/27 at 1pm..sweet
Pre-op appt with surgeon 7/3 at 12:30...awesome

I'm standing outside the office faxing something and get a voice mail from the surgery center.
"Hi Julie, we have you down for 1pm appointment today and it's now 1:45. Please give us a call if you can make it in today"

WTF?!?! I ran back and checked my paperwork...yep...6/27 1pm... NOT 6/25 1pm.

So I call... Very sweetly I say "I have 6/27 at 1pm written on my notepad from the day we talked."
She said "Right, we scheduled it on 6/27 but then had to reschedule because there wasn't going to be a nurse available."
I felt as though I was either right... or completely and utterly crazy.
She said "I'm sorry I thought I called you."
I said "I don't think so, I didn't get any voice mails or anything"
She said "I'm so sorry, can you come in RIGHT NOW?"
"ummm...uhhhh.... Let me check with my boss"
All I can say is THANK GOD my work is so understanding. I know it's inconvenient and puts them in a bad situation sometimes but they really roll with the punches and understand that shit happens.

I rush out the door and on the road...
Then BACK to work because I left my pre-op paperwork on my desk in the rush.
Make it to surgery center in record time.
The lab guy was about to leave so we rush back and do blood and urine.
Then we get to relax and just talk about the surgery. She gave me crap-ton of information and folders and this and that and the other thing.

PHEW! Glad that's over!

Fast forward to today... the surgeons office calls...
"Due to a scheduling conflict we are going to have to reschedule your appointment"

Roll with the punches...
Just keep swimming...

So now my appointment with the surgeon is this Friday. I have to admit I like that better anyways!

Now what I'm sure you all clicked for.... FOOOOOD PPOOOOORNNN!!!
Me and hubs went out for my last meal so to speak.
Cheesecake Factory....yumo

 Fish n' Chips....*drools*

Good frikken choice if I do say so myself. Their coleslaw is to die for...really. With that scrumptous tartar sauce.. oh em gee It was sooo delish. 

The Hubs also got me a pre-op gift... I'm so frikken excited about it, I can't wait to rip open the box and weight myself! 

 The Fitbit Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale... It automatically
loads your stats to My Fitness Pal..SCORE!

And finally...starting tomorrow this will be my sustenance for 2 weeks. Whooopie!

 Is it weird I'm excited about it? I know I will be singing 
a different tune pretty quick but it means the 
day is getting closer! 

Tomorrow starts the first day of the rest of my life. The day I take my health in my own hands and make the changes that will save my life and my health. I'm going to kick ass and take names... i'm gonna be snappin' necks and cashin' checks ... I WILL succeed. This will be war... war on fat... war on bad food choices... war on emotional eating...war on low self-esteem. I'm ready to fight for my health and take it back!

But before I put on the war paint and start this battle.....

Let us eat cheesecake...


  1. Geesh thanks for making me cry!!

    1. Awe, I wasn't tryin' to make ya cry! I <3 you! :)

  2. great food porn I am on an all liquid diet lol but you did warn me.... hey did I read somewhere that you can have grilled chicken and steamed veggies on your pre-op diet you lucky biatch lol. me, i can only have clear liquids and protein shakes and a yogurt if im dying for 10 days pre-op and for 2 weeks after I can add in some oatmeal to that liquid diet... we are gonna be 2 hot bittys though. enjoy you grilled meats I am sooo jealous.

    1. Haha, yes I can have grilled chicken and steamed veggies for dinner. Protein shakes and liquids the rest of the time. I know i'm lucky, I was expecting full liquids and was very happy to hear I can have SOME real food!

  3. oh, I want the scale...I have the fitbit and Love it!

    1. I never thought I could love a scale so much haha!!

  4. Hey you... Your posts don't show on my blogger anymore!!! I found this one thru FB...

    Great luck on your pre-op

    Tell me about the scale... I don't understand the diff between this and fit bit which I dont really know what that does either.

    My favorite during pre op was finger jello ,

    1. Mmm...i wonder why im not showing up? Try re adding me to your blogs maybe?

      The scale is frakken awesome! Although I have found that it doesn't load your weight to MyFitnessPal, oh well. It loads all your info to FITBIT.COM and keeps charts and graphs and all that jazz.

      The fitbit is like a crazy ass pedometer. It's teeny tiny and it also sends all your info (steps taken-calories burned-stairs climbed etc..) to fitbit.com AND MyFitnessPal. You can also wear it on the wristband and night and it tells you if you got good sleep. I want one..seriously..

  5. Thinking kind, happy, positive well wishes for you and your two week diet :)

  6. You're going to do great on the pre-op, you have a really good attitude about it. :)

    BTW, can't believe how often your office needs to reschedule things. That's nuts. I wouldn't deal with that unless they were otherwise complete amazing. Hope they are!

    1. Thanks Ronnie! I'm chugging along so far!

      I love my office...they really are great! I think the holiday just had them all screwed up. I'm really a go with the flow kind of person so it didn't bother me too much, I just hate being "that person" at work ya know?
