Hey guys! Today was a veggie day.... my body was fighting it too. Not sure why. I had same pre-pt breakfast as always: banana, toast and PB. 2nd Breakfast was typical as well - overnight oats cereal. Lunch was even pretty typical: stir fry, quinoa, and veggie chick n' nuggets. Then my body went crazy. I had an apple for a snack at 2pm, and 30 min later carrots and celery. And then broccoli, and cabbage and I was still HUNGRY so I gave in and had another piece of toast w/ PB because I knew it would keep me full. So, add in dinner and I have eaten too many calories today. I REALLY hope that the nutritionist can help me figure this out. One thing I realized when talking to mom today was that perhaps I am so hungry as a side effect of my pain meds that I take every morning for my hip. I am going to ask about that. I wish I was healthy then I could just run a few miles and even things out and not have to worry about how much I was eating....well at least I wouldn't have to be so darn strict (which isn't working because my body is fighting it.)
I went to the Commissary today to see about party platters for a Sergeant Audie Murphy Club event that is coming up, and while I was there I grabbed some bananas. I also saw a new hummus - well I have seen it before but never looked at it because Sabra Hummus is so very good. But I checked out this new hummus and it had 20 calories less per serving so I decided to try it. Here is a pic:
It was a bust. I am highly disappointed. It is not nearly as good as Sabra and it was WAY too salty. I'm actually wondering what to do with this Hummus because I would feel bad throwing away a almost full container but I don't want to eat it! This is when having a man around the house would come in handy, right? Also I could use a guy to squash bugs for me - I hate bugs. And Trash - I don't like trash. I digress.
Yoga tonight was good, but I am not sure if I am getting a good workout - and its not relaxing enough to justify it by saying "at least I am reducing my stress." I probably am getting a good workout but I didn't sweat so that kinda makes me wonder. In Sunday Yoga class I am sweating within 10 min of class starting - I get such a good workout that I am usually sore all day Monday. Not quite the same with this Tue/Thur class. I guess I should be grateful though because I was having pain in my leg this morning so its not like I really needed to workout hard anyways. It is just so hard for me to rest and no be able to exercise because my mind is still the same as when I was running 8 miles every Saturday - when I could do more Push ups than the guys... I wish I could get my mind to adjust to my body or my body adjust to my mind!
Well that is all I have for today. Tomorrow I see the nutritionist and I get to have my testing for the CAM program! I hope it is not a let down. Keep your fingers crossed for me. Think good thoughts. Have a great night and I will see you tomorrow.
