Another day, today was a lot of sitting down with the leg up. I have to make sure there is no swelling tomorrow because I am getting fitted for my brace. So no bike today no abs just leg up with ice. I think I got it to the most normal size that I can get it. Tomorrow I plan on doing something.
I am not sleeping very well because I am not expelling any energy but I hope to change that a little tomorrow. Even though I have to take it easy I can lift some weights, upper body, ride the bike, do some major ab work and punch in a seated position. Maybe I can get worn out enough to get a good nights sleep.
I am trying to stay positive because I chose to have surgery so please be patient with me.
I did not eat well today. I got the chance to go eat at a new restaurant in town that I haven't had yet. I made a somewhat healthy choice, grilled fish sandwich, but I ate french fries with my sandwich. I already packed my food for tomorrow. As I have said a few times, I am really packing in the protein and laying off the carbs. I am satisfied with my food but this is a big change from my normal diet. I am not a big carnivore so all this meat has been replaced with some protein shakes. I can tolerate them ok and the one I have taste pretty good.
Tonight while watching Biggest Loser I kinda reached my breaking point. I finally got up to do something else just watching the show out of the corner of my eye. I finally decided that I was going to pluck my eyebrows. Seemed like a good idea and then I decided might as well wax them, I have time. So I pulled out the handy dandy home wax kit...and now I am missing a portion of my eye lashes! A little drip has now done a lot a damage. There is still a little hint of a eye lashes there so I am going to test the power of my mascara tomorrow. See I do still have a sense of humor!
I will let you know how the first real modified workout goes tomorrow and let you know if I make my late night workout buddy cry again! Ha Ha Ha! I have some new stuff for tomorrow.
