There is a lot to digest from my meeting with the Dietitian. She went over a lot of things. I am thankful she gave me handouts. It looks like when i come home from the hospital, I will be eating pureed food. That is ok. I can blend my meat with cream of whatever soup... so that actually won't be bad. I am allowed tomato soup in stage III so, again, that will be awesome.
I think I am going to do alright. She did say she really doesn't want me drinking protein supplements, but she does want me drinking Carnation Instant Breakfast - sugar free. I am failing to understand why she wants me to drink that over protein supplements with 2x's the amount of protein, and less carbs and sugars? If that is what she says to drink, that is what I am going to drink. Personally, I think it is gross. I can only find the chocolate variety around here, and i am not a huge fan of chocolate to begin with. Again, if that is what she wants, then I will for sure do it. I figure she has to know what she is talking about! She works with Dr. Newlin's patients all of the time.
I made up a shopping list of things that I need to get. There really isn't a lot. I think for my meats I am going to stick with tuna and chicken for now. Mainly because both taste good when blended with a cream soup, and she also said that I am allowed to use a tablespoon of low fat/fat free mayo. I can make like a tuna or chicken type salad to eat too, as long as it is smooth. It will be weird eating chicken that is the consistency of pudding. I thought about ordering some of those protein infused puddings from a website, but I am not sure.
After my meeting with my dietitian, I went to the mall. Yankee Candle is having a fabulous sale.. $1 tarts! Yay! I don't usually burn candles, but I do enjoy burning tarts. I bought at least 50 of them, plus 2 warmers. 10 of them are for my mother, and I bought my boyfriend's mom a warmer, and we picked out a dozen tarts for her, and a bad of tealites.
After that, i went to the salon and got a Brazilian wax. I figured I needed it. It is an excellent stress reliever, and I won't have to worry about shaving for a while. The lady that did it said I was "a tough chic" because apparently, a lot of girls that get it done end up crying and saying they don't know if they can finish. Not an issue with me.
We are having dinner at my grandparents tomorrow for Easter. I hope it goes well. I know I am going to feel very deprived, but it isn't a big deal. I notice that I am less hungry now. I am not sure if my body is finally adjusting, or, if I am just so stressed out that I am losing my appetite?
I think that is all for now
ps: The Big Bang Theory was hysterical tonight!
