need bandster shopping help!!

Ok so as you know I am going to Orlando next week. I want  to shop while there, for things I will need post-op. What liquid/chewable vitamins do you recommend? Also I saw somewhere that you can buy a protein fizzy tablets to use if you don't get enough protein down some days, do you know what that is called and where I could buy it. I would also appreciate any other suggestions as to what to buy post-op. We don't have much of these liquid/chewable vitamins and supplements so I want to buy some while there.

Also I was told not to buy clothes from Walmart by a family from Arizona. So I ask, what shops should I look for to buy childrens/pre-teen clothes that wont cost me an arm and a leg? Also any plus size shops you know of I´d love to know.

Anywhootz not gonna make this one longer as I am at work and am not supposed to be blogging there haha

Any suggestions are soooo helpful :D

travel worries

Was working an extra shift today from 2pm-10pm. It was so looong, so few customers and I was bored silly.

Wow Orlando is fast approaching, just bought currency to pay the rent of the house we have out there, and it just hit me, this is really happening. And then SHIT I didnt lose as much weight as I planned well of course not when I cant stick to a diet. Like just now I ate half a 12" pizza, was soo hungry as I only had a hot dog round 2 pm and then this pizza. The weight is ok I fluctuate from 280-282,3 pounds these days, mostly at the lower end of it. That means I am about 7 pounds heavier than I was last time I went abroad in 2010. Not really that bad.

I still am so so scared that I will have a situation at an airport in the US where I wont be allowed on board unless I buy another seat. Saw that happened to a lady there and I am petrified. I have not had to do that and I have not had to ask for a seatbelt extension either but I am still so scared. This is one of the reasons I cant wait to have the lap band. I want to be somewhat carefree when traveling, not having to panic "am I so big now that I wont fit?"

One of my newest panics is about my dads passport. It usually takes less that two week to get one here. But due to demand it was printed in the paper it might take 3 weeks. We dont have that much time. I have to apply for ESTA and APIS for him, those are permits and info to go to the US. I need his passport no later than next Friday. So if he doesnt have it on Tuesday I´ll have to call and see if I cant have it hurried along.

I´m waiting for my tax retun so I can go buy more currency, problem is it wont be here until aug 1.s and I am supposed to work till 6 pm then and the banks close at 4 pm. I have a girl ready to work for me from 2pm-6pm but I am still not relaxing. I am stressing way to much about everything regarding this trip, think it is because my bf wont be with us.

anywhoots gonna go to bed now, its 11:45 pm here, so I can be semi fresh for work tomorrow and then I can go pick up my kid woohoo so lonely without him here.

Hope you all had a great week, I´ve read all your blogs and I am still somewhat scared to leave a comment, just know I do read every post :)

Way to start a new week

I suffer from somthing called Lumbago NOS dunno what it is expect chronic lower back pain, has nothing to do with my weight as I have had this since I was 12 years old and then I was an athlete, although being obese is definitely not helping. But anywhoots yesterday I got this lumbago acuta which basically means I can hardly move a muscle with out a sharp pain in my lower back and left hip so whoopy for me. And to top it all off I had to go to work for 4 hours as they could not find a replacement for me, and when I got home there was a HUGE freaking wasp in my appartment and I had to get it out which I finally managed, should have seen me wearing my pink bathrobe for cover hahahaha. Wooooow just had a tiny earthquake while writing this, see this is a great start to a week ahhhahahaha gonna go crawl back to bed and read some.

Weight wise I am keeping it constant so dunno kinda worried about Florida and how much I´ll gain there.

this week on....

Don't all episode previews start off like that? Anywhoot, this week has been somber. The bf went out to sea on Wednesday which was a total bummer as I don't know when he will be back home, could be I won't see him for 2-3 months or more. This caused my dear son to cry all the way home and took a lot for me not to cry with him because I don't like him being sad and I was sad as well.

Regarding the Orlando trip next month, well obviously the bf can't make it so my sister and I decided to bring our dad along with us, this was good news to the ever so sad kid of mine, so now I just gotta go get that idiotic international drivers license they demand I use in the States, that btw is only a little grey book with my picture and three stamps. So only 20 days till we go WHOOT WHOOT.

Do you know of any stores in Orlando where I could buy a bathing suit? I don't think I'll have time to buy one here. Ugh so much to do and so little time to do it. I don't have any time to do anything when I am working 10-18. Most shops close at 18 so I miss out until the weekends, so maybe I will go see if I can find one here on Saturday.

The bf did not bring me the best gift ever back from the Faroe islands. I got this shitty cold and god awful cough, I honestly thought I might choke last night, woke up at 1 am and damn coughed so much I could not breathe, and my eyes watered like crazy. So not the best gift ever hahaha and the other thing he brought with him was pickled whale blubber, and him being 1/4th Faroe he thought it was great and sent most of it to his mum who loved it and said it reminded her of her youth ugh that shit was NASTY I tell ya, it ugh I refused to taste it and that will never happen haha.

Well food wise things have not been that good, I have not been eating like I should, I skip breakfast and usually don't eat until 2pm when I get lunch, and then I eat dinner and voila that's it and I know that's not good. My mind just has been all over the place with all the planning and stuff for Orlando and the bf going away for so long. It is not an excuse but I just have a hard time keeping to it. It's like I have been on a diet forever or so it seems and all I ever end up with are some extra pounds I get when I snap back, so maybe this whole diet thing is not a good idea, I should just try and eat less and I can't wait to have my band, I know it won't fix everything but it sure will make it easier to skip the things that I eat, for instance I eat a lot of bread products.

Well think this is enough for now, I hope I have not made you stop visiting me by not blogging so regular these last weeks but I´ll bug ya till ya come back hahahaha

Now I´m off to bed to read book 32 of 47 in The Legend of the Ice People series which I looooove. I honestly read one book per evening hihihi

better late than never.... right?

I'm not gone, did'nt quit, I just had a really loooong week last week and then my awesome baby boy came home on Thursday and his dad came home on Friday. I'm now working from 10-18 and have not gotten a good hold on this eat all day at work thing. Only 3 weeks till I go to Florida and I need to kick my ass something seriously. The boys are both home sick while I am at work, at least the kid is spending time with his dad lol since he will be going back to sea on Wednesday. ugh nothing to do at work, there is like one custumer per hour or something near that now. and I wanna go home lol

Food sucks

I am so not managing to stick to this liquid diet bugger!!! I did ok except for dinner, I had a freaking sandwich and fries bad bad bad Íris, so even though I am tired as hell I am getting on that bike, its only 9:30 pm so 20-30 min is ok, then some reading and nighty night. I hate being so hungry when I finish work because that makes it sooo much harder to chose wisely and all the more harder since I am home alone, buggery buggery crap. Well lets hope tomorrow will be better

Spider invasion!

My bedroom was invaded by my ugly long striped hairy eight legged enemy. That's right a huge ass spider. Well it's ass wasn't that huge but it was WAY to big for my taste. Mind you we don't poisonous spiders here in Iceland but I have a huge case of arachnophobia nevertheless. Well I also have slight case of Entomophobia (insect phobia), I imagine they get in my ears and stuff hahaha pretty I know, that one is all thanks to that movie with Clare Danes where she is in that prison in Asia and a cockroach crawls into her friends ear, and that episode in Greys Anatomy with the guy that had a spider in each ear ugh....  I really don't mind them if they are outside, but as soon as they enter my house/bedroom I freak out. And today there was no trusty bf to take it outside for me so I was a brutal killer I know bad bad bad Íris, well I killed it with hairspray, cause I couldn't get to close ugh I can barely think of taking it up and throwing it out not even though it is dead.

Anywhooootz I am so lazy today. I only woke at 10 am because my darling brother needed allergy pills and was in the neighborhood, I almost ignored that annoying buzzer that indicates I have a guest. But I didn't, instead I have been in bed reading the icelandic lap band comments on this group I was invited to join. I am even more excited today I tell you. Now I just need that money to start pouring into our bank account so I can get my ass to the UK whoop whoop

Today's exercise will be the following..... none! nah I kid I kid. I will mount my fabulous bike again and then do some more silly exercises in my spider free bedroom. Then I need to clean the apartment, and sort out my closet ugh I dread that one, it is stuffed full of clothes in all sizes. And I rarely find the size I want as it is no longer organized, everything has been stuffed in there where ever there is room for a long time lol the bf doesn't know where I put my clothes so it has just gone like this and I am way to lazy to fix it. But that will change today, which means I need to go to the store and buy a big black bag for the clothes I won't be using for a while and put them somewhere else.

My gosh looks like I have a bad case of blog diarrhea so I'm gonna stop now, finish my Cherrios and go do something other that sit here and wait till I can go back to bed.
