Seems like everyone is sick right now. I'm doing my best to ward off the germs -- my brother and his fiancee were both sick during the holidays and now DH...
Good morning :)
I didn't get around to shoveling snow yesterday so it's on my list for today. The weather app says there is more coming, but I'm hoping it's wrong ;)
Today I have to run to the pharmacy and pick up a few things. Then I have to email my school advisor and let her know why I probably won't graduate this year either lol. She's really chill, but just asked me if I thought I would be done this year. I'm so lucky my program is so flexible at this stage.
Oh, I forgot to mention earlier... As part of the process I went back to see the dietitian at Guelph. I specifically made the appointment with the lady I really like (I know they don't guarantee you will see a specific person)... I ended up having my appointment with the dietitian I absolutely hate. She has made me cry in the past and her advice is so often terrible. She told me to eat more half meals. So 10-12 times a day?? When on earth would I be able to get in my fluids??
Post-op two years, nine months.
Breakfast - Greek yogurt, pineapple
Snack - pizza (really small piece), protein popsicle
Lunch - chicken soup
Snack - pulled pork
Dinner - tbd. I don't think I can eat anymore soup or pork.
Snack - cheese stick, crackers
All water and vits.
What is a protein popsicle?
I make them myself using a six popsicle mould:
1 package of SF dry pudding mix (I like chocolate)
1 scoop of protein powder (I like chocolate ;)
1.5 cups of milk
0.5 cups of water
Mix in a shaker cup and divide into six moulds. Freeze until firm :)
Make sure you pour into the moulds right away or the pudding will start to set in the shaker cup -- learned this the hard way.
Thanks - I will try tomorrow!
Good morning, friends,
Finally a normal winter day here in the North; only -11. Tomorrow it's supposed to drop to -25, -35 with the windchill, so I think I'll go for a walk today if the snow squalls let up. I can't breathe when it's colder than -10 or -11 so have been pretty house bound.
Today is our last holiday party. I am all people-d out, lol. I lived alone for a long time and am not used to living with people who like to socialize so much any more. We've either had people here or have gone out every day for weeks now and while I love seeing everyone, I'm done, lol, and am ready to return to some beautiful, peaceful solitude.
The group that are coming over tonight are a lot of fun though, and we'll be singing karaoke so it should be funny. We've got a house full of food today, and I'm saving my daily carbs for a small slice of pizza, but after today will be glad to finally get back on track, food wise. I gained 1.5 Lbs over the holidays and lost half a pound since the 1st, but still have to lose 1 more before I get back to normal. It's really not that bad of a gain but this was my first gain since surgery and I don't like it, lol. I cannot wait until there are no more tempting treats in the house. This would be so much easier if I still had my own place.
Breakfast: 2 cups decaf with 1/4 cup premier protein in each, cheese string, clementine.
Supper: 1 small piece of pizza
Snack: pepperette, clementine
