So it has been almost five days since my surgery and I just wanted to type up a quick post because I have been quite antsy to do so. I haven't had a lot of time surprisingly to post, mostly because I have been trying to spend time with the boy and then of course my friends from high school who are home for our week long break for Thanksgiving.
It has been really nice and even post surgery I don't feel worse for wear. Well, besides the fact I can't workout besides walking. I never realized how much you use your back until you try to come up with workouts that wont stress it, don't involve lifting and such.
I've been very lucky by being back home because I have a dog that requires at least a 45 minute walk a day so it truly has been perfect for me!
Anyway, on to food. Unfortunately, for the first two days after surgery I wasn't very hungry but I have thankfully regained my appetite in time for Turkey Day :)
The times that I did eat were pretty light but today I definitely had an appetite.
For breakfast I had a heaping bowl of oats soaked in vanilla creamer with some cranberries and walnuts on top. I actually didn't finish the bowl and I pawned it off to my mom would finished it. I am so greatful for her help after my surgery--from getting me my medicine to finishing oatmeal. Best mother I could ask for.
After my huge breakfast I decided to do a bit of cleaning and then went out to coffee with a few high school friends but since I already had a large cup in the morning I just had an herbal vanilla rooibos tea which hit the spot but I did come home and devoured a bowl of Brown Cow Strawberry greek yogurt with Kashi! Go Lean and frozen mixed berries.
A little messy in the bowl, but oh so delicious!
I didn't have a chance to take a picture of dinner because my brother's girlfriend was over and well, I didn't want to scare her off ;) But you can bet as soon as she's over enough she'll be seeing camera.
Well, that's all for now I'm afraid, have a wonderful Thanksgiving with whoever you may be celebrating it with!
