- HEALTH TRACKER
I've only cruised post-op. I went on cruises with no casino (Disney), did drink minimally - I have a 1 drink limit and you can request skinny ****tails. Food wasn't a problem - they had "light" choices on the menu that worked with "the rules" and offered a variety of SF desserts. I did hit the gym, booked active excursions and generally stayed busy. The spa / fitness center should offer some low impact classes or activities. If dancing doesn't hurt, hit the clubs.
Have a great trip!
I like your plan. I'm post-poning the holiday until Saturday. I have everything I need to make a nice Mexican meal on Thursday. We're excited that we'll have no where to go - and no pressure to do difficult things - like get dressed. We stopped traveling a while ago. My family just won't come my direction... usually seem ok to see me... but the road runs both ways. I'm happier not spending the day with extended family too.
Have a very good day!
Good Morning! Good to see you again Beth! Don't be so hard on yourself -- it's so easy to get off track & so hard to get back on.
B - power crunch
L - lean cuisine (not my normal but I'm feeling lazy)
D - ??? have a 6:30pm meeting, so something quick
Movement - off day given my evening meeting. BUT -- I registered for the Disney Princess 1/2 marathon in February. I'll be training hard for the next 100 days. Must cross the finish line!
Have a good day,
I have spoken to my surgeon about this issue in the past. He did recommend imodium. I didn't take it because I usually have the opposite issue and was afraid to aggravate that.
Hope you feel better.
I'm at work -- making up for a Friday afternoon off. Not that I have to, except our audit starts on Monday. Friday was spent house hunting, we're looking to switch school districts. I have a lot of anxiety about this -- I can't afford a private school and the other town doesn't have a school system so they give school choice vouchers. However, the homes are a lot more money -- and that's not for "more house". We could be looking at a downgrade. Sigh.
My eating this week has been about the same -- except that I gave up pretzels. As of this am, I am down 6lbs. My weight is back to my comfort range... 126 this am.
B - 1/2 breakfast burrito
The rest of the day is pretty unplanned. Need to get to work & work on my anxiety. Maybe look into on-line mortgage pre-approval this weekend. Yuck.
Only day 2 of avoiding the pretzel jar for me... BUT - I lost 4lbs yesterday. Clearly jus****er retention (my plumbing is it's ordinary clogged) but it put me back into my normal range. Pretzels really aren't my friend. I wish salt didn't taste so good.
So far today:
B - power crunch bar
L - cheese sandwich (whole spelt bread / mustard / cheddar)
D - tba... meeting tonight
S - fiber 1 90 calorie brownie
Have a great night!
Note to self: Refined Carbohydrates are not your friend.
I've been hitting the pretzels & candy too much lately.... so I'm going cold turkey. So far today:
B: Power crunch bar
L: tuna casserole (dreamfield's pasta w/ extra tuna)
More coffee than usual as I'm trying to control the carb cravings.....
I've been extra hungry today too, so not a great day.
B: power crunch bar
L: split pea soup
Snacks.... pretzels & a snack size snickers bar and an apple.
I'm tired from a long week, stressed with personal stuff -- planning & booking my oldest daughter's wedding (just in time for Christmas shopping), thinking of selling my house & have a relator coming on Monday, the insurance review for my plastics is on Tuesday.... sigh. I need a nap, a winning powerball ticket, and a maid.
Have a great weekend!
I definitely worry about regain. I lost from 278 to 132 with diet / exercise / prescription medications.... but over the next 5+ years regained to 234 when I went to my intro session. I could make excuses, and I did have a couple babies & a major depression due to a child's illness, but in the end, I failed myself. I don't trust me.
All summer long I looked at last year's winter pants.... thinking "damn those are small" and wondering what I was going to do for clothing.... well, THEY FIT, maybe even a bit better than before. Yes -- I'm wearing the same pants two years in a row!
I know many of you can relate! Have a great day!
I was a D cup pre-op, went up to a DD for a while.... now, down to a 32C without too much sagging & dragging. I think the "girls" were the only part of me that bounced back a bit.
