|My JAPANESE bento-box collection of goodies|
Last night I received a membership to the Wellness Center at the local hospital in town for my 45th birthday (tomorrow). This morning I got a ginormous box of goodies from my bestie, Pam, from Sacramento, Calif … chock full of awesome Japanese bento box goodies ~ perfect for any lap bander out there = ME!!!! And I got money for a pedicure from another family member in the mail today too … which I was just telling my toes that soon they will be shiny and new with a bright summery color.
I registered at the Wellness Center this morning too and will go back to work out around 1500 today and then one of my friends who works as a physical therapist there is going to orientate me on all the machines! I usually feel like a complete dweeb on majority of those machines but I’m happy she’s going to show me the proper way of working out. My appointment with her is at 1600.
I’m going back to see my Bohemian kin tonight for burgers on the grill … or in my case, a teeny tiny burger on the grill ….
Then come tomorrow 1000, my mom and I are heading to Sioux Falls to spend my actual birthday shopping and eating out for the very first time as a lap bander. Last weekend, I went to the Old Chicago website and printed out their menu and found that they cater to people with small appetites in their “Smaller Plates” section. Only four items are listed but for $3.79, I can get a Greek salad with complete deliciousness.
