Work, Mr Mum, Pantene, and the unexpected aphrodisiac!!

Well survived my first day back at work post banding. After 10 mins, I felt like I had never been away...the bitching, moaning, and whinging had started......I often wonder I really working with a bunch of 25-60 yr old women, or a bunch of year 8 school girls????? Believe me...they act like the later!!
Anyway, lucky the ward was busy, and they didn't get time for any further moaning/whinging for the morning!!

As I predicted, my eating was much more controlled today whilst I was at work. Optifast shake for morning tea, (didn't have time for breaky this am), salmon and tomato toasted sandwich for lunch,
and half a banana about 3pm.
Couldn't eat all of my roast chicken dinner that my hubby cooked thats a good thing hey??
Did I mention that he has taken time off work to be Mr Mum during the school our kids don't have to be orphans for the hols!! ....He was actually supposed to be going to Sydney for a rugby boys trip, but used his savings to pay for my lap band op....yep...he's pretty bloody awesome....but don't worry he's not one of those sickly too good to be true guys...he definitely has bad qualities...I'm sure you will hear about these as my blog progresses.....but today, I'm lovin him silly cause I came home from work, and he had dinner organised...and the floors vacuumed (think that had something to with me telling him that us women find men with a vacuum an amazing aphrodisiac) ;)

Anyway...all was a pretty good day...

Oh, by the way, lots of people at work looked me up and down (to check out my weight loss...I'm guessing) but only 1 person told me that I look great, and that she could really notice my weight loss....I then started wondering...did she just say that cause she knows I've had the band, and she felt obligated???? Anway, I'm feeling great...cause I can notice my uniforms feeling looser!! It may not happen over-night, but it will happen!

Good night my gorgeous fellow bloggers,
