Will use this post as an update as I go to and recover, if that's ok

So, getting ready for surgery one thing I want to do really well at is my liquid intake.

I've heard all about the Yeti tumblers... they dont condensate.. Keep liquids cold or hot for hours, etc. Theyre wayyyyy too expensive though

I'm preop (6 days!) and am on 4 shakes + lean protein meal a day. For the protein I'm using chicken thighs normally grilled or done in a crockpot with some bbq sauce.

***I AM STILL PREOP***

 

Wife and I feed our two dogs raw, and meant to buy my little one some chicken thighs w/ bone to feed. I realized that I bought boneless so figured wouldnt let go to waste, so I threw on grill and basted with BBQ
