It's been a little over 4 weeks since my foot surgery - which happened to be my right foot - and I am allowed to drive again - Yayyyy! The only shoe that fits over my foot right now without causing too much pressure are my Uggs, so that's what I am wearing.
On my first drive out I filled my car up with gas, went through the car wash, dropped my husband's prescription off at the drug store drive through, and I did a little grocery shopping. I bee-lined it to the produce section and stocked up on fruit (fresh pineapple, bananas), salads and fresh veggies. I also plan on making my family dinners this week so I grabbed a turkey breast, ingredients for stuffed shells, and ingredients for white chicken chili. They should be happy campers!
Tonight I am making them stuffed shells, broccoli & cauliflower, turkey meatballs and sourdough bread. I am going to eat nutrisystem lasagna and the broccoli & cauliflower and add a fruit. I try to pick a nutrisystem meal that goes with what they are eating so my meal smells the same (like tonight's pasta dish) so I don't feel like I am missing out on something. It seems like it is working so far. I am into my second month with it and may add one more month to get me through the holiday season. It's been a lot of work losing it, I don't want to go back. I also don't know at this point how long I have to wait before I can run again. (It is on my list of questions for the Podiatrist next week.)
So, back to driving. I have my girlie-girl appointments all lined up for the week now that I am FREE! Monday is Marshalls (I totally love and miss that store) and a manicure. Tuesday is the Dentist. Wednesday is a microdermobrasion (for wrinkles and sun spots). Thursday is hair color (yeah, I know it is a shock, but I am not really a blonde!) and hair cut. I am doing my part to get the economy going again. It's gonna be a great week!
UPDATE: My husband ended up getting a pizza and fries instead - I held my guns and stayed with my pre-planned dinner.
