For weeks I have been thinking about what I am going to eat while I am not on my foot for 6 weeks - especially the first couple weeks. I make all of our meals at home. I am going to be at the mercy of my husband! My husband LOVES to eat out/get food delivered, and eat pizza which I do not eat. He also loves cheese steaks, meatball sandwiches, nachos - you get the idea. Lucky for him he is pretty trim and can get away with it! If I eat what he orders I am going to be in HUGE trouble -- and just plain HUGE by the time my foot heals! I do not want to start all over!!
So, after much debate, I decided to order a month's worth of nutrisystem. I used it a few years back and it worked very well. And, being that I will be sedentary, I think it will help my chances of not gaining any weight back while I am sitting on my butt. He can zap it in the microwave for me. I am going to by frozen veggies and fruit packs this week to go with it so I should be all set.
That leaves me with two tasks:
1. I have to buy a knee cart. There are tons of different kinds and the price range is huge! They start at economy and end at lexus!
2. I need to find an exercise plan where I don't use my foot. I am thinking about getting a chair exercise DVD...does anyone know of a good one? I know of one SparkFriend who uses one, I am going to reach out to her.
***And just so you all know, I will have my laptop next to me at all times -- so you will be hearing from me. All of your stories and accomplishments will keep me going!
So, that is my plan. Can you tell I was a girl scout?? I take "be prepared" very seriously!
