weight gain after surgery worries
Tuesday, January 28, 2014
I'm scheduled to get my wisdom teeth out on Friday and I'm worried about gaining weight from inactivity. I think it's making it worse that I'm not able to run my usual mileage because of my foot. I had hoped to get in some extra workouts beforehand so as to hopefully counteract my impending slothdom. Okay, recuperation, though it'll probably feel like slothdom to me :-) I have no idea how long I'm going to be out of commission - wisdom tooth extraction is for kids, not 53-year-old grammas! But I'll just have to make do with whatever unfolds.
Meanwhile, I've been making up a list of things I'll want to have on hand to eat, expecting that I won't have an appetite at all for a few days. I'll lay in a bunch of yogurt, applesauce, soup, mashed potatoes and easy-mash bananas. Hopefully my reduced calories due to lack of appetite will make up for sitting on the couch for however long it takes. As a hidden blessing, it will force me to give my foot a rest :-)
I do know that I'll be looking forward to that first easy workout when it finally occurs!
Have a Terrific Tuesday, Sparkers!
