Day 1 of the Reset is around the corner. Last week I had my blood drawn so that I could see if the Reset will have any significance change to my numbers. The numbers now are pretty much middle of the road. I would like to lower my cholesterol just a tad though.
Oh, I should tell you about my experience at the lab. I got there an hour after they opened. It took me a while to get out of bed — I went to see Lita Ford, Poison & Def Leppard the night before. Oh, who am I kidding? I was procrastinating because I hate getting shots.
Anyway, I had to wait about 30 minutes to be called – which I passed the time by checking Facebook and Twitter. I was anxious waiting to be called. The time dragged! I watched people in the waiting room who also looked uncomfortable to be there. Some looked like they felt awful – wonder what they were in for?
When they finally called me, I was told to go to the second to last booth. The girls who were drawing blood that morning were in a good mood, busy cracking jokes and laughing. The guy sitting in the next booth over was saying he was really squeamish. His talk of being squeemish made me even more anxious.
I hate needles.
I mentioned it to the girl who was going to draw my blood. She said I should be fine and then proceeded to ask me where I got my “cool” glasses from. Looking back now – she was trying to distract me. LOL. Anyway, I told her where I got the glasses and she said she had to call her husband to have him bring her glasses to her. Um – WHAT? I told her that was not something people wanted to hear prior to getting stuck with a needle. She laughed and then said that she could see fine, she just came back from having shots and partying all night too. I couldnt stop laughing. Before I knew it, she already drew 2 vials of blood and it was all done. I didnt even feel the needle prick!!! She was good! (Happy dance!)
Anyway – fast forward to today. The past couple of days, I have been craving foods that I won’t be able to have while I am on the Reset. WTF?! You’d think I was seriously pmsing. Today – I wanted a big ol’ juicy cheeseburger with steak fries and ranch dressing. I had to have it. So I did. I actually couldnt eat all of it. I should have just split the burger with my friend, since she didnt eat her entire burger either.
Tomorrow, I am thinking Julia Child’s beouf burgignon for dinner.
