Let's see how today goes!

I'm very proud of myself for yesterday.  I went to the doctor to get my unfil.  .4 cc's to be exact which is a huge amount for me, but yet I still felt very tight.  I'm sure there was a lot of swelling.  For lunch I ate some cream of broccoli soup to help let it heal.  For dinner, I tried to eat some roast beef, but couldn't, so I just ate the mixed veggies.

The reason I am so proud is that I didn't comfort myself with junk.  It is a big deal for me to stay focused and I did it.

Last night I went to Jazzercise.  I knew I wanted to wake up for CrossFit this morning, but I also knew it was going to be cold again.  So I jacked up my heater by 3 degrees so it wouldn't be so cold in the apartment when I woke up.  It worked!  I actually made it there this morning and I'm so glad I did.

Food plan:

Coffee substitute:  Peppermint herbal tea.  This seems to be my favorite and it is good for me to drink something hot before eating in the morning.
Breakfast: Egg beaters wrapped in ham.  (Eating these now and all seems to be well. I just have to take it slow.)
Lunch:  Zucchini boats.  (hollowed out zucchini stuffed with taco chicken and baked) topped with avocado
Snack:  Apple with raw almond butter.  I haven't needed a snack yet so I still haven't tried this.
Dinner:  Slider burger patties with mixed vegetables.

Even though I worked out this morning, I told my friend I would work out with her at lunch so I think I will take it easy and ride the bike while I read my book.

Also, I think that I'm used to not having caffeine and I actually feel better.  I still don't think that I will be able to give it up for good, but it is good to know.

So far, so good.  One day at a time!!

Great work getting up for Crossfit! That is a huge struggle for me, I always work out at night and just have to make sure that it is priority.

Also- High five for not turning to junk food! That is an amazing accomplishment, we all know junk is the easiest food to eat with the lap-band... such a pain!
