PRE pre-op diet

So today is the day I start really buckling down...eating on my best behavior...getting my body ready for my pre-op diet so its not such a shock when I start.

I'm actually EXCITED to start my pre-op diet, is that weird? (I know I'll probably be singing a different tune a couple days in!)

I know in my last post I confessed about all the jerkface eating I did. I'm chalking it up as a learning experience. Eventhough it was horrible for me, I'm glad I did it. Not because I'm a glutton for punishment.... But because it showed me what kind of affect our food choices have on us...on me. The 2 1/2 months prior I ate like a frekkin champ! I exercised.... I drank A LOT of water... I drank NO soda...

How did I feel? AWESOME!! I was happy, I had energy, I wasn't tired ALL the time, I was alert... etc.

Switch to Jerkface eating attack. Fastfood/restaurant every meal, Soda every meal, NO water, ice cream, cakes, cookies, candy bars.

How do I feel? AWEFUL!! I've been crabby, depressed, zapped of all energy, tired ALL the time, can't concentrate, don't feel like doing anything besides eating some more bad crap.

WOW, that's a bitch-slap of truth right there. A well deserved/needed bitch-slap! I never want to fall back into those awful eating habits. Knowing the stark contrast, I think I would be clinically insane to go back.

On Saturday me and Cupcake went to Kansas City's River Market, a HUGE farmers totally rocks my world. We were getting produce for our first canning lesson! We bought a flat of strawberries for $6! We also bought 14 ears of corn and a crapton of green beens for freezing. My mom and dad brought my eldest daughter up and surprised us! Afterwards me and Cupcake went  for my "last meal" on Saturday. Hikari, A Japanses Steakhouse...mmmm....
Sorry, food porn I know! I had Filet Mignon and Chicken

So yesterday me and Cupcake had our first canning lesson! We made strawberry preserves...or jam..or whatever it's called. It was a lot of fun! Here are the 'fruits' of our labor haha...

There's the first batch with pectin..      

2nd batch, no pectin just sugar and strawberries. 

So what's for breakfast today?

Much better than a Mcd's biscuit right? :)

Pre-op diet starts in a few days... Then surgery... How EXCITING!
