This is it. This is the day before the big event. The day before it all happens and makes me whole. To be honest, I feel very much in an emotional flux today, kind of like a sensory overload. All the emotions and feelings that have been with me are in the background, and I’m relaxing slowly. Everything that needed doing is done, and all I have to do is hang on for the journey now.
Admittedly yes, my routine today has been somewhat different from normal. Without that first mug of coffee, I don’t know how I managed to get going, but I did! The first sachet of Picolax was taken within plenty of time, and that has worked already. I didn’t quite what to expect from that, but oh my….I’ll leave that to my readers vivid imaginations!!
I think the only hard thing I am finding today, as I said to Eric and Dave, is *not* eating. I’ve been doing Slimming World since February, and they encourage you to eat, and to eat the right things. However, with the bowel prep needed in preparation for tomorrow, I have a very limited list of what I can eat, and at what times I am allowed to eat and drink. So yes, it was very very hard to resist sneaking that little bit of beef off of the plate whilst preparing lunch. You never know, I could even come out of all this with a weight loss, something which wouldn’t be expected over Christmas!
The rest of the day seems easier though. One more picolax between 2 and 4, and supper between 7 and 9pm, and then that is it. Well, barring the fluids I must keep drinking.
So, hopefully the next time I post my blog, the operation will be over and done with. Fingers crossed!!
