I Need to Act on my 100% Commitment
Monday, January 22, 2018
Today, I will attempt to drive for the first time since surgery. One of the stops is the follow-up appointment with my doctor where he should sign the release so I can get back to work. Mixed feelings about that. I am still uncomfortable, though I can't call it pain. I selfishly hope he gives me a limited release to return to work but says I need to work from home. It hurts to wear certain garments!
Before surgery, I read about post gall bladder removal diets. My doctor said I could eat anything I want. But I have discovered the information I read about avoiding certain foods is right for me. Hence, my reading about clean eating. I am still learning about what that means for me and have made mistakes every day, but progress has been made.
Last night, as I tried to sleep, I realized that I ate two things yesterday that were not the best choices for me. Too many oyster crackers and a tortilla. I need to commit 100% and stick with it. The consequences of not doing so are worse than the choice made at the time. I did attempt to make bone broth.
Still and all, I feel much better than I thought I would. I actually hope they want me to step on the scale today. I am curious about that number!
Stay safe if you're dealing with inclement weather! Stay hydrated and keep moving! We can do this!
