Surgery day!

Thursday, March 03, 2016

Today is my shoulder surgery. I am STARVING. I don't check in until 10:30 and no food or drink since 7pm last night. Not eating breakfast is really hard for me.

Weight loss has been going well. I'm down 15 pounds this year which I am very happy with, considering allowing myself cheat days every week. This past weekend was BAD for eating. Saturday was my cheat day and we went out for Mexican. I had the chips and salsa, then we ordered nachos as an appetizer, I ate half of my fajita quesadilla and then Johnny and Max wanted fried ice cream and who am I to argue? So I ate all of the Mexican food ever made. Then, I should have detoxed on Sunday, but I was very munchy and every time I felt like I got my eating under control I found myself eating something ridiculous. So Sunday was bad too. Usually I hit my wall after about 2 weeks, but this time I lasted 2 months which is phenomenal in my book.

I asked the little Instagram group I am a part of for help (my saving grace! Love those ladies) and we have put forth a March Madness challenge where for the entire month of March we stay within calorie range EVERY DAY. That means no cheat days until April. Especially with me not lifting for the next month, I need to be more strict with my eating. I am going to miss lifting so much, but it's good to know I will more than likely be able to get back to 100%.

Because I will be gimpy and drugged up I tried my hand at ordering groceries online and having them delivered on Saturday instead of me trying to go shop. I also didn't want to send my husband cause he'd come back with a bunch of Swedish fish and sour patch kids. Probably not a fruit or veg to be seen! Anyway, will let you know how that goes!
