Why am I rushing Friday? Well...I've gone back and forth the past month on whether I should talk about this here, but have decided to go for it.
On Friday I will be having liposuction! It 's something I've been wanting to do for awhile, but wasn't making enough money with my home daycare to save anything. But since starting my new job, I've been able to.
I am so excited. I've felt like I work so hard, I eat healthy most of the time, I'm in the gym 4-5 days a week- but my stomach refuses to go away, and my hips refuse to get any smaller!
So I'm having lipo on my stomach, flanks (back fat), inner and outer thighs, and hips. I've done lots of research on this, I wanted to be very well informed and make sure this is what I wanted to do. And it is!
As for my recovery, I'll have the surgery on Friday and then go back to work next Tuesday. Since I sit down all day, my Dr says I should be fine. (He's the same amazing Dr I went to 12 years ago)
I can start walking as soon as I feel like it, probably after a few days. But I shouldn't start running again for a couple weeks.
The only thing I'm worried about... my next half marathon is in 5.5 weeks! The R'n'R DC half marathon. I will not be able to train for it much at all. I try to always stay half marathon ready physically, but after a surgery like this, and not being able to do any long runs, I'm not sure how it will go. If I have to do a lot of walking during it, I will. I know it will be an amazing experienceeither way.
And then March 1 I'll start training like a crazy person for my R2R2R hike in the Grand Canyon! So, here's to a super fast and easy recovery!
If you guys have any questions, feel free to ask!
