In 2 weeks, I will be having my surgery. I started my pre-op diet today, and it was...
I went to see The Hunger Games with my friend Katie. After, we went out to Eat N Park, and met a few more friends there. I drank my shakes and ate my fruit, and I will be honest when I tell yoU I was hungry.
At the theater, I got a cup of coffee. I usually don't buy drinks or snacks at the theater, but I did this time around because I was hungry. Drinking a hot beverage usually helps me feel less hungry. I also sliced up an apple and hid it in my purse. It left me feeling not so hungry, but I still could hear a faint rumbling in my stomach.
When we reached the restaurant, I got a hot tea and a diet pepsi. My friends ordered food. It actually wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but that might also be because I have a cold and can't smell or taste anything. I was hungry, but I just focused on the conversation with my friends. I sucked down 4 cups of tea and a glass of diet pepsi.
After a trip to Walmart, where I managed to buy nothing I really needed, I came home. I had a salad for dinner, and let me tell you... it was the best salad I have ever eaten. Since I used some nasal spray, I got my sense of taste back. My salad..
4 cups of romaine lettuce with shredded carrots and onions mixed in
3oz of tuna
1/2 cup of sliced strawberries
2 tablespoons of fat free balsamic dressing
6 saltine crackers crushed up on the salad.
Now, the instructions for the diet say that the salad I eat is not allowed to contain eggs, croutons or cheese. It can only be fresh veggies. However, there is nothing saying I can't mix all of my food together? The crackers actually work on a salad, and it was quite fantastic.
Tomorrow, I made a chicken salad like my tuna one I had tonight, only with chicken. For Thursday and Friday I am having Cajun Salmon and veggies.
I am hoping that a few days into this I will stop feeling so hungry. I guess the ends in this case are really worth it. It is just one more step towards my good health.
I think that is all for now
ps: The Hunger Games was an AWESOME movie. While it wasn't the same as the book, it was still excellent.
