Thursday and Friday are Parent/Teacher Conferences; my first day back will be Thursday. It will be an incredibly long day, 9-7. I worry if I will be able to make it as my energy is still incredibly low.
I wear an "Active Link" that tracks movement. Any activity beyond that point which one normally moves just to live (called a "baseline") earns the wearer "points" based on Weight Watchers.
Weight Watches is based on the simple premiss: eat less, move more. The Active Link wearer can, if they want, trade the points earned on food.
Prior to surgery, I was earning 3-4 points every work day. Weekends I would drop a bit, but earned 2-3 points.
I am lucky to hit "baseline." My Active Link has suggested a goal of 1 point a day. Every day I have earned that 1 lowly point, I have been exhausted the days following.
I am very worried about the energy I will need at work.
So, Thursday, ready or not, I will attempt to work 10 hours. Friday I have my final post-op, so I will not have to work the short day. Monday, it will be back to work in full force.
I am worried!
