Happy Birthday to me!

Yes, it's my birfday, or as my sister used to say, it's my smurf-day! I'm 34.

I totally forgot that I had set myself a mini-goal for today. Oops. I didn't make it, but that's ok. So the new mini-goal is to be 217 by the end of June. I'm 222.5 today.

Unfortunately, I think my band is too tight. I don't know what happened. Since my last fill, I felt pretty good and had excellent restriction. Now, suddenly, over the past few days, I gurgle like a mofo after every drink of water. Soup was a no go yesterday, and I didn't fare much better with salad today. Even my caramel macchiato this morning (birthday breakfast treat) produced lovely pterodactyl sounds with every sip. Let me tell you, the throat gurgle is very distracting when you're trying to take blood pressures all morning.

I have a few ideas. Maybe it's the weather. We've had a cool few days, and now it's back in the 80s. I've tried to stay hydrated, hoping that will help. I also switched my blood pressure meds on Monday. The new stuff is making me hella tired. It's going to take a few days to adjust. At least it's working though. I had been running in the 130s over 90s; today I got 116/72. Big drop.

Anyhoo, I must get some sleep now, so I'm not a zombie at work tomorrow. Can't wait to listen to my brand new Lady Antebellum CD in the car tomorrow morning!
