My plan yesterday was to get all my shopping and laundry done; however, my body had a very different idea of how to spend the day.
I ended up having an adverse reaction to the Percocet and I was vomiting for about 18 hours. Weak as a kitten, couldn't get out of bed. But this morning I am feeling a little more like myself, so I am going to attempt to slowly get things done which need to be done.
Breakfast this morning is a plain baked potato. Absolutely plain. lol
Here's my "plan" for the week - we'll see if it happens or if my body allows it to happen!
Breakfasts will be a bagel thin w/ an egg, turkey bacon and 1/2 slice of cheese with a banana or oatmeal w/ almond butter
Lunches will be sandwiches on sandwich thin with Greek yogurt and one other thing, carrots, almonds, or what not
Lean hamburgers with a side of veggies
Chicken and broccoli casserole over brown rice
Chicken and asparagus pasta (minus tomato and pepper)
Unstuffed cabbage minus tomatoes :/
Turkey dogs w/ mac n cheese
Snacks will be fruit, veggies, almonds, string cheese, hummus and crackers
So it's not the BRAT diet, lol. But for me it is super bland. I am used to eating spicy foods topped with hot sauce. I hope I am able to again!
Still no exercise. It wasn't even a possibility most of the week. I know once I am back to Michigan my daughter and I are taking a water aerobics class, so I think having 2 months of trying to get used to eating healthfully again before getting regular movement in will be ok for me. It's not like I don't have a lifetime ahead of me to exercise regularly! lol
This is going to be my gym : http://www.fitnessusa.com/loca
tions/michigan/lincoln-park/ My daughter already attends but she is waiting for me to start the water aerobics :) It's such an amazing deal and you can go on just women days if you want at another local location. They have a co-ed area and then a women-only area. Which I'll be doing I am sure!!!
I honestly cannot wait to go back home. Being so sick that I couldn't take care of myself and being without family really made me want to drive back right away! But I know the goals that I have set and it won't be for much longer. I need to get my car fixed and have enough money saved to rent a house once I have a job in MI. I would have nothing to show for my time here if I left now.
Well I hope you all have a very blessed Sunday and a great week ahead!
