10 days in
Monday, June 21, 2010
Well after 10 days of eating healthy(ier), drinking my water and getting some sort of exercise EVERY day. I feel awesome! I've noticed I have more patience and I don't feel grumpy all the time. As if the fog has lifted, I'm more focused and chilled all at the same time. I've avoided fried, fatty, and sugar-filled foods and it really hasn't been all that hard.
The importance of planning has become exceedingly more evident. Especially on workdays. Weekends at the hospital cafeteria are absolutely aweful. Usually if there isn't something half-way decent, I can always go for the salad bar. However, the salad bar is closed on the weekend. Yesterday, i forgot to bring my lunch and I ended up choosing the "heart-healthy" meatloaf. Something tells me it wasn't all that heart healthy.... seemed awefully greasy, despite the oatmeal. I was so busy I didn't have time to snack at all so thats a good thing. On the other hand, I didn't have time to drink my water (or pee) for that matter. Another good thing, I was on my feet and moving all 12 hours, give or take about 10 minutes to gulp down lunch and about another 30 minutes charting. I came home famished and my husband had made Sun-dried tomato alfredo and chicken penne for dinner. He had a plate for me warming in the oven. What an absolutely awesome man. He even saved all the labels so that I could plug in the data to the recipe calculator and figure out what I ate. I love that man!
Note to self:
Keep on feeding the body the good stuff.
Keep on exercising.
Pack a lunch and snacks for work.... including bottled water.
Hang on to that husband of yours... he rocks!
