Hey jellybeans, I didn't manage to do a TTT yesterday, so we'll have Five Things Friday instead.

  1. I haven't worked out at all this week - pathetic!  To be fair I had a really busy Mon-Wed, but yesterday I was just a complete slug and did nothing all day!  To make up for it, after I've finished this post I am heading out the door (best put some clothes on first!) and hitting the gym for at least an hour of cardio and some strength.
  2. Got my hair cut - doesn't look much different, just more layers and a bit more shaping round my face.  I like.  Planning to get the colour done soon too, bit darker with some coppery tones.
  3. I've been having some shoulder pain like the post-surgery gas pains, and the occasional band/stomach pain at the same time.  I had half a diet coke on Wednesday and was in agony all evening so maybe it was the bubbles but there have been a bunch of other times I've had something fizzy and haven't had pain.  Have any of you had shoulder pain since surgery?
  4. I've got a busy weekend coming up, Ben's mum's birthday on Saturday, his Dad coming for dinner on Sunday and a party at my Mum's on Monday for the bank holiday.  Busy busy - hoping to fit at least one gym session in, probably Sunday morning.
  5. Haven't seen anything as low as last week's weigh in on the scale from all my sneaky peeks - it's getting me a bit down.  My eating hasn't been perfect every day, had lunch and dinner out on Tuesday, but my recent fill is definitely helping me eat less at mealtimes.  I guess no exercise isn't helping and I haven't got all my water in the last couple of days.  I'm hoping for a loss of at least 0.8lbs so I can reach my 50lbs lost goal.  Fingers crossed! xxx


  1. I wanted to comment on the shoulder pain - YES! And it's a direct result of the carbonation. I'd have half a coke and be in pain for a week. I haven't had it since I've got out the carbonation. I highly suggest taking a break from the bubbles!

  2. Same here- I bet it is gas or carbonation.

  3. #3 Yes! I attribute it to days when I eat too much and it's actual band pain. The only thing that takes the pain away is to lay down and sleep. I don't know about the carbonation because I haven't had any since surgery, I think that is probably the only band rule so far I have

    Yay for your forward progress!!

  4. yep carbonation is out for me...way to painful
