Three Weeks out - catch up and treated self to me day
Sunday, February 01, 2009
Okay, I'm a bad at journaling! that being said, there were a few days this past week that I wanted to write, but could not remember how to post a blog.
So here I sit three weeks post op, feeling very good about self!
I've had some ups and downs, but mostly good days. I've been doing well with my pureed foods, but looking forward to next week when I can put real food in my mouth.
I walked on the treadmill one week and two days after surgery - it was only 20 mins at 1.5 miles and hour, but it was something. Then I did tues for an hour at 2 miles and hour.
I went back to work one and half weeks after surgery. It was easy, but working at the gym, I over did it cleaning and house cleaning at home so I ended up with a muscle pull. So I had to take it easy for a few days, especially had to rest up for my first Pampered Chef show post op. I did Christy's show and it went well, but I did not eat well that day - it was a messed up day trying to stay on the schedule. I did not eat anything bad, probably just not enough.
I was able to return to the gym for another walk on monday, but snow tues and wed messed going, so it was Wii fit. Thurs ended up having to rest from another muscle pull "saving my van from sliding down the sheet of ice on my bosses' driveway" Finally got back to the gym on friday for 50 mins at 2.8
Weightloss has been going well. I lost 7 the first week, 5 the second and 4.5 this last week for a total of 16.5 wooo hooo. This is a total of 24.5. I can feel this in my clothes. I will have my trainer measure me next week when it is a month post op.
I had my check up with Dr. Steele on Mon - Jan 26 - it was our best meeting to date, it's still difficult, but she hugged me at the end
I've had a few struggles with the food my family eats, but for the most part, I'm doing okay. The french fries my husband and son were eating at first were bothering me, but I powered through it. I meet with the nutritionist on thurs. so hopefully that will be a good meeting.
In closing, I treated myself well today- I got a much needed haircut, and decided that my brows needed to be waxed, after that, decided that my face needed to be done, so I walked down the mall to the "MAC" store and got a full makeover. Now I just need to get some more Pampered Chef shows on my schedule to pay for my "ME DAY" I just figured, I have not had soda or chocolate in three weeks, it was time for me to treat myself
