Just a little squeeze
So, remember when I said that I got a fill but I didn't think it was working?
Yeah, well, you guys were right. I totally feel Donny today!
Not in a bad way where I can't drink anything and I can't eat anything and I'm PB'ing and getting stuck---just, I can feel her there today.
Every morning when I wake up, before I head to the bathroom to start my getting ready for work routine, I drink some water. I'm basically judging whether I think that I have any restriction that day so I can gauge the rest of the day. And this morning, it went down SLOW.
So, after I gave the bunny her morning raisins, I pulled out the 4oz of protien shake that I made on Wednesday to finish today, and I made my last three ham/swiss rolls. I ate one, and it slowly worked its way down the gullet. I could FEEL it. And as much as I wanted to drink, I really tried not to. So, that plus the 4oz of shake was breakfast.
When I got to work (see, this is my problem), my brain kept telling me that I needed to eat more than that, protien wise, so I went to the fridge and pulled out some thin sliced deli turkey and a cheese stick. On bite #2, it got stuck. Not stuck that it came back up, but stuck enough to make the iced tea I was sipping to back up into my throat. And it was the WEIRDEST sensation waiting for it to pass--I felt it when it cleared Donny--because the tea just rushed down.
I didn't snack all morning, and I took it easy with soup for lunch, and then had two ham/swiss rolls as my afternoon protien punch.
So, wow. I'm happy because I finally know that I have restriction. And since I'm aware of it, I know what to NOT do to make it angry. I will be Miss Perfect Band Girl going forward (okay, who am I kidding--that will never happen!). Okay, so I won't be perfect, but I WILL be aware.
