- HEALTH TRACKER
Hala - what part of VA are you in? I'm in central VA. For some reason, I never see any VA folks on here - not sure why.
This post showed up above Hala's post - Computer doing crazy things today!!
And what a fantastic journey it has been so far!!! Thanks to everyone for your helpful suggestions, insights, recipes, etc. that have helped me along the way. Here's my close ups, front, and side views from the night before surgery and from last weekend. I also included a pic in my pre-op jeans.
We had rain overnight and temp was in the upper 50s when I left for work - felt like a heat wave!!! It is supposed to get up around 70 degrees today and really windy - then back to the cold tomorrow.
Had my 1-year follow up appointment with the NP yesterday and all went well. Did bloodwork and waiting on the results from that.
Eats for today:
B: Eggface's breakfast bites
S: 2% colby jack cheese stick
L: Arnold sandwich thin w/ roastbeef and provolone
Pre-workout: Vanilla greek yogurt with 1/4 cup Kashi go-lean
D: haven't a clue . . . we'll see what I feel up to after working out.
I haven't worked out much in a while . . . time to get back into it BIG TIME!!! This evening I plan to ride the stationary bike for a while and then a Zumba class. I love me some Zumba!!!
I'm in central Virginia - and always have been. Generally, we have always have the "standard stuff" and we always had sweet potato pie. Then, I met my husband who is from California . . . and Mexican American . . . he always had pumpkin pie. Now, I usually have pumpkin pie but I make sure that I get my sweet potato casserole. Occasionally I will make a sweet potato pie at Christmas because we used to have the same basic meal for Christmas that we have for Thanksgiving. We've now changed that up a bit so that no one has to spend Christmas day in the kitchen.
Another thing that started with my husband was the addition of black olives. They had olive trees in his yard in California and apparently put olives in almost everything!! He always makes the stuffing and adds black olives to it - which is WONDERFUL!!! Also, he likes for me to make potato salad with black olives (and boiled eggs). Everyone raves over it. My favorite potato salad is one that I make with fresh dill (and no eggs) - so I make both which makes everyone happy.
In addition to all of this, my sister married an African American and we now have collard greens at all holidays, as well!! We have the best of all the worlds!!!!
And we usually have ham, as well!
