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.
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!!
