Day 5

26 04 2010

Today was another blah day, I’m a bit under the weather and its raining outside ūüė¶

I ate an apple for breakfast, but I really didn’t feel like eating it. ¬†It was the same thing with lunch, I had a bit of yogurt and a few slices of deli meat.

I took a nap after that and felt a little better, well enough to eat something for dinner.

I’m house sitting for my parents for the next four days so I packed up a few things to bring over:

Earthgrains Thin Buns

I love, love, LOVE these things! ¬†Only 100 calories, 5g of protein and 4g of fiber! ¬†I’m trying really hard not to eat carbs, but in addition to the tortillas these are a good lower carb solution.

I brought this, and the other ingredients (almond butter, bananas, spinach, almond milk) to make my Green Monster smoothies!

I also brought a few other necessities:  protein bars, a sweet potato (in case I crave sweet potato fries again) and some almonds for snacking.

My parents have everything else I could need: ¬†lean proteins, veggies and fruits, but I wanted to make sure I had my staples so I don’t slip while I’m here.

I kept dinner pretty basic:

Earthgrains thin bun, an egg, reduced fat pepperjack cheese, a slice of turkey and mustard.  It was pretty good, like a breakfast sandwich and the mustard gave it a nice kick.

I start my physical therapy on Wednesday, so I’ll find out my physical limitations then and hopefully some exercises I can do in the meantime while I’m healing. ¬†Until then I’m just trying to walk regularly to keep active.

Several of my friends went and got tattoos today, and the boyfriend has been talking about it for awhile. ¬†I’ve contemplated getting a tattoo since I was about 14 (I’m 27 now) and I have yet to decide what I want, and where I would put it. ¬†I have an 8in scar on my back from my surgery (maybe I’ll get my boyfriend help me take a picture so you guys can see…I need to post my “before” pics anyways) and people keep suggesting getting a tattoo to cover up the scar (but that would be one massive “tramp stamp” and I’m not sure if thats what I want…) but I don’t know…

I’ve always thought tattoos should MEAN something, they should mark something important in ones life. ¬†So perhaps if I can succeed with this challenge, then maybe, just maybe that will be something worth marking.

Anyways, enough of my rambling. ¬†I’m not going to be able to weigh in until Wednesday since I’m house sitting, and its probably for the best anyways since that will be a full 7 days.

I hope you have a good night, and heres hoping I feel better tomorrow :-/
