My mind has just been racing. It seemed as though I was so scattered I just knew my ramblings would make no sense. But I am calm (for the most part) at work because I'm busy. So I am writing this post during my breaks here at work.
First I shall recap the weekend...
Friday Pre-op diet day 10: you know the drill... Shake, shake dinner! It sounds like a song!
The hubs convinced me to go to this nice Italian restaurant in the next town (because we don't have one in the boonies of course) and I think I did good! Although it wasn't on the menu, they were nice enough to make me a plain medium-well steak with veggies (yellow squash, zucchini, and red onions) it was DELICIOUSNESS!
Confession: They bring bread out first... and I kinda had some... just some. The baby wanted some so I picked out all of the soft inner bread which just left the crunchy shell and I knew she would choke on it... so I ate it.. boy that crunchy ciabatta shell/bread was delish. But I only ate a little bit!
But I did make this for dessert when I got home:
Peaches, Strawberries, Blueberries and Bing Cherries..YUMO
Big Girl eating her FroYo-she LOVES that stuff!
Sunday Pre-op diet day 12: Good day! everyone sing it with me... SHAKE, SHAKE, DINNER!
Sunday dinner is family dinner at Gee's house (my grandma, Big Girl started calling her gee at like 9 months old and it just stuck...we all call her that. I love her. Dearly.) My mom and grandma love me...alot. They made sloppy joes and decided to make me a modified portion...just for me! They just took the meat and made a patty for me that I could grill on my foreman with my zucchini. It was delish...
Zucchini spears...ground turkey,pork,beef mix with
shredded zucchini patty grilled on my
george forman (I love that damn thing!)
Confession: My mom made some homemade salsa so I had a couple tortilla chips with salsa, it was tasty. I also had a spoonful of the sloppy joe mix..no bread.
I am SUPER duper proud of myself. Eventhough I have confessions and small slipups...they have been SMALL slipups and I've done so incredibly well. There are many things that I "CAN" have on this diet that i'm don't. I can have diet soda and i've only had a couple. I am also allowed 2 cups of juice or gatorade a day and I've only had a few sips here and there of orange juice. I'm allowed chicken broth, sugar free jello, and sugar free popsicles... as much as I want and I don't have very much at all. I've also lost 13 lbs since I started my pre-op diet. I'm happy and I know I've done great. Only 1 more day of this, then wednesday is FULL CLEAR liquid diet. YIKES! Then *gasp* the next day is SURGERY! :) I'll be posting later about how i'm feeling about the quickly approaching day!
OH! BTW, Thursday night I made these adorbs little cupcakes for a lady that was buying them for a baby shower. The more I make...the more I LOVE making them. :)
They were a hit and already have someone else
wanting to order some!
