After much icing of my knee and after many ibuprofen pills were ingested, my knee actually got better today. It got better to the point that I was getting cabin fever. We decided that since Sean’s been needing new shorts and a new pair of sneakers, we would head to Arizona Mills (a very large indoor outlet mall). Old Navy thankfully produced two pair of cargo shorts for $15 a piece and $foo shoe store produced some New Balance sneakers for $39. Not too bad. While walking around the mall, though, Sean and I both noticed the strategic placements of candy shops, pretzel places, etc. There was a candy shop that sold smoothies and icies and the such right next the bathroom (for all of those people that have to wait for the other people to use the bathroom). Other candy shops, I noticed, were placed right next to or across from kids’ stores. The evil part was the fact that I actually wanted some of the stuff. I normally don’t crave candy. I have come to enjoy actual cooked or prepared desserts much more than candy. Both of our bodies have hit the point that we’ve deprives them of what they want long enough that they’re fighting back with cravings.
Four more days to go, but I know that every one of those days is going to be very hard. Blissfully, tomorrow I’ll be home for most of the day, getting a little bit of work done as well as cleaning the house. It needs a good, thorough scrubbing and my day off seems to be a good time to get it done.
On another note, it’s now five days away from when Sean gets to have his nose job. I know he’s really not looking forward to this. We picked up some frozen fruit to have on hand for smoothies. My boss is letting me take sick leave to take care of Sean. Did I mention that I think my boss is awesome? As a result of the fact that Sean is not looking forward to this surgery and that we will just be finishing this diet before it, after much discussion and deliberation, we are going to break the diet on our last meal. We have also agreed that we will not feel guilty for this. We have been incredibly good on this diet so far. We have given up a lot of foods that we enjoy eating and drinks that we enjoy drinking. We have exercised religiously and we have successfully seen results. I’m not going to ask Sean, though, to drink smoothies for a few days without getting to enjoy one meal before the smoothies descend. So, Thursday night’s dinner is completely up to him.
Time to go finish up laundry tonight, read a bit and then get a good night’s rest. Sean, unfortunately, has to go to work tomorrow.
