Catching up

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

So I've been online daily, just haven't updated my blog.

Had some ups and downs over the last three weeks. I struggled for a couple of weeks between taking care of family, bad weather, being ill and just being overwhelmed but I rearranged some priorities and renewed my commitment to myself and I'm back on it.

Yesterday was a STELLAR day. Ninety minutes of exercise, stayed under 750 calories (I had a sleeve gastrectomy four months ago - this is temporarily normal and healthy for me), got over 70g of protein (something that's CRITICAL after this surgery) and drank 45 oz of liquid (again, a restriction imposed by my reduced stomach size, but I'm working my way up). I felt like such a good girl.

Today I'll cheat just a little. I'm actually going to have some corned beef and cabbage for lunch and I have a neuromuscular massage appointment after work so my only work out will be the 45 minute walk I took a little earlier. I expect to make my protein goal (60g) again today as well as my liquids (45 oz) so, all told, a good start to my week!

Happy St. Patrick's day, all!

    I'm glad your satisfied with your surgery. I will find out on March 22nd when they can give me my total knee replacement. That way I can when it's healed I can look forward to some 45 min. walks. I might even be able to come there and visit. It's a long shot but it's something I can shoot for. LOL I don't know that much about your type of surgery but i'm willing to do the research and learn. I'm learning that for me this Sparkpeople program is a slow & steady progress. You have inspired me by the amount of time you've been here, so I know you can do what ever you make up your mind to do.

    You must be getting back on track. I sure hope the surgery works for you. I thought about it but decided to just work it out. Enjoy your day! emoticon
