Today was the final surgery for my hernia repair. I finally have all of that unsightly scar tissue removed, and my umbilical area is resembling an actual belly button. (You have no idea how excited I am). So now my scar tissue is fixed, my abs are toning up, bikini season, here I come!
Speaking of which, today was the day of comfort food, because let’s admit it, no matter what it is, surgery is painful and I always need a little TLC after going through anything like that. I was craving Mexican food, and since there’s an awesome torta place in Fontana I tend to eyeball every time we drive by, I was very gung-ho about going. Post surgery, I didn’t want to stop, so we ended up at our go-to, Tio’s. LO and behold, it was Taco Tuesday, and the heavens opened up and only charged us $13 for a late lunch.
Okay, maybe everything just seems better after a stressful day. I’m glad I could get coffee from the coffee cart after, tacos, and best of all, I didn’t have to drive…
I also was happy to make a slow-cooked, healthy beef stew with quinoa after a long afternoon nap.
Tomorrow, it’s back to work and the rush, but I’m honestly ready after a long day of pain and rest. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get back on track (literally!) with my running.
Also, I think I’m going to throw this out there…running 5 miles the day before abdominal surgery probably isn’t the best idea. My abs were sore and having anesthetic injected into sore muscles=so not fun. I don’t think I would have done it any other way though, because I was proud of my accomplishment on Monday night. A month ago, I could only walk due to knee pain.
Less falling apart.
Anyway, that’s my insight for today. Time to dance off (kidding! I’m going to plop on the couch) and do my Philosophy homework (*groan*). Thanks for dropping by!
