Getting Back to "Normal" WLS Style

Now that I have an emergency kit of self induced savings...I can get back to normal, that is after my 15 page paper is written ugh that I need to write due on Tuesday next week , but I digress been here done that! I am getting back to being Lissa - that happy, upbeat, crafting, idea driven gal that isn't so down in the dumps. Hello World I'm baaaack!!!!

Today I started by eating with my new nutrion plan ( I see Nicole on Friday and I'm uber excited about that!) this is what I ate today:

Breakfast : 2 hard boiled eggs
Snack : 1 small non fat yogurt with granola
Lunch : 1 cup of Chicken and dumplings from McAllisters
Snack: 1 shake - 10 oz of Light chocolate soy and a bariatric mix in with PB2
Dinner: Chicken salad from MacAlissters (didn't fit in the pouch) on whole wheat bread
Snack before bed: string cheese

I also got back to moving a little today. I went for a walk at lunch and didn't do a fast or vigorous walk, but I did get out and move. I'm planning on getting back into this every day at lunch, but need to work my way into it as even today I'm a little shakey and still not 100% - thanks to mr. cold, but atleast I'm able to move. If I feel up to it tonight, I'll do my strength training on my arms and research my paper...yeah that paper.

My goal on friday with Nicole is to get the following:

I need to know a calorie point for me to eat at to lose not maintain my weight
I need to know how to eat low carb as possible with high in protein (still low, light, and lean)
I want to be able to leave with a plan or confirmation of the eating habits that I'm working on
Plan for working out lightly with protein before and after and what to do when I do a more strenuous work out as well

Next week after the paper - I want to get back into a gym. I canceled my TCU gym membership. I wasn't using it as much as I wanted and to be honest I can't work out with students. I jiggle, I'm self concious and I just don't like it so - plan B - planet fitness 10 for a month, unlimited session with personal trainer, free taning, and open 24 hours. Also 2 miles from my house. Yes please. This will allow me to have me time - put my ipod in and work out (because it is getting cold for miss skinny to run and walk outside brrrr) and I would like to take my leg work outs to a machine rather than just the ball - variety it is the spice of metabolism.

I also am going to get back to my fit bit. I have tried for a solid 2 months to not track everything in the world but since this sugar thing I need answers and I need control. My anxiety wants it and instead of fighting it and making it worse I'm going to have plans and stick to it - this control will help me and take away that "i don't know what i really ate" "how many calories, what?!?!" so I'll meet Nicole halfway and then I'll be comfortable. I like knowin how many steps I walk and can work on me by pushing myself in a concious manner.

Being real there is 26 lbs to my goal weight. I'm not expecting to lose a ton of weight overnight. That isn't the point of WLS but honestly I don't want to gain anymore over the holiday season. I have a holiday plan I can do this - but I need support and I need accountability. I'll be posting the real life food logs that is life because no one is perfect....I just want to reach my goal!

  1. Glad to hear that you are feeling more like yourself again. Now it's time to get on the healthy bandwagon and enjoy all the new possibilities that it will bring. I am excited for you and I can't wait to read what the nutritionist says today.

    Have a great day and Happy Friday =D
