And I really don’t regret it.
One, it was very difficult to stick to the plan while on pain medication. I had to have a very full stomach to keep from getting sick, and I was told my mini meals throughout the day weren’t enough to provide a substantial base for the meds.
Two, you know how when you’re sick/recovering all you want is comfort food? Yeah, that was me.
There was Chinese one night. Glorious Italian food another. And some Japanese and some Mexican.
Apparently, I just decided to be a world traveler while on my pain pills.
And other than some walks with my nursey mama and Chloe, exercise had to be very limited, since I had to keep my bandages dry.
There’s been lots of snuggle time.
UNTIL YESTERDAY, when I had my first post-surgery run with Jamie.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy. That’s a big “I’m a couch potato no more” smile. I think this past week is the longest I’ve gone without doing any form of exercise in years. It felt right to get back in the game.
And then I gave her a glass of wine and my Bender Ball so she would help me change my bandages.
That’s love, people.
So, back to nutrition plan talk. I’m back on the wagon of clean eating this week, but I’m not going to step on the scale for a little bit. I find I feel so much better when I go by how my clothes fit rather than a number on the scale, and my clothes don’t fit any tighter this week than they did pre-surgery. So, since I’m not disappointed with where I am right now, I’m gonna roll with it.
