I bought these shoes in November when I was running every day and hiking. They are trail shoes. I ran in them twice! Can you believe that! That’s how long it’s been since I actually exercised! Well, they are on my feet today because I went for my first walk post-op! I feel great. I walked for 30 minutes. I’m going to get back into the habit of doing this daily and hopefully by next week I will be running again.
Today I can have mushy/pureed foods, but I’m actually hesitant. I’m not sure if I’m mentally ready to start them. I keep going back and forth. I’m already eating drinking more carbs than I wanted to with the yogurt and milk. I’m having a really hard time thinking of low carb mushy/pureed foods. Pureed meats just does not sound appealing at all, I don’t think I can even try to go there. I’ve got a couple ideas, but I need to go to the store. I was thinking cottage cheese, but if I have cottage cheese I want fruit in it…. So that defeats my whole low carb thing. I was also thinking of some avocado with crab, I think I still have some crab that we caught in Alaska at my dad’s this summer in the freezer. So I guess I have a couple ideas. I know I need to get some more nutrients in me, not so much more calories because I’ve been doing ok the last couple days and getting close to 800. ( I know 800 doesn’t sound like much, but for right now 800-1000 is what I’m supposed to be eating)
I had cottage cheese with sugar free blueberry preserves for lunch in a “baby” bowl! That went well. Tonight I mixed 2 avocados with 2 cups of real crab and I ate 1/2 cup of that. It seems like it went well. I ate it really slow. Probably took me 30 min or so to actually finish. I waited 30 minutes before I drank anything, I drank some water and now I feel so stuffed. I don’t like this feeling. And I’m thirsty and just want to drink a whole glass of water…. Not sip. All the sudden I’m feeling whiney!
