It's not quite EPIC, but it is a FAIL
The best laid plans of mice and men.....
So, after an awesome first day of being on pre-op plan (with the slight addition of some canned chicken breast), I got home and went to fix my chicken Unjury soup and roasted cauliflower for dinner. And somewhere between heating the water for the soup and actually making the soup, I got waylaid by the last serving of some turkey chili I had taken out of the freezer last week....so, I had leftover turkey chili and cauliflower. I didn't get in my last two protien powders--but I think I'm okay because my turkey chili is awesome--and chock full of protien with ground turkey and three types of beans.
Today, I'm off to a good start again. Shake at 6:30, Cream of Wheat at 8:15, string cheese at 10:30, and then I made greek yogurt dip using 6oz Fage 0% yogurt mixed with 1 scoop of Unjury chicken powder, a dash of black pepper, and then I added 2 oz of shredded chicken breast. I put in the fridge to chill for about an hour, and then ate it with some peeled cucumber slices and baby carrots. I'm stuffed. (Yes, I added chicken to it, but I really don't feel full without solid protien--it's probably years and years of being raised in a meat/potatos household)
I love greek yogurt, especially the Fage brand--it really reminds me alot of sour cream--so I like to sub it on my chili or a baked potato, or in dips--but to eat plain Fage alone with nothing? I can't get past the "I'm eating a container of sour cream" bit. Yesterday, I added a Tbsp of Torani SF Raspberry syrup to my Fage to help to sweeten it up. For some reason, it tasted gross. I won't be doing that flavor again any time soon.
So, slight fail, but not total disappointment in yesterday. Better to screw up on day one than on day 13, right? I am totally not going to make the same mistake again today! Besides, there's no more chili. But I did go to the grocery store at lunch to pick up more yogurt, red/orange bell peppers, carrots, celery, and cauliflower (because roasted cauliflower is the BOMB).
Onwards to the end of day two--and a good start to my pre-op diet.
Tonight is support group at 4pm, then picking up the ELB from his job tonight before heading home. I just happen to have my shaker jar with me from breakfast this morning, so before I head out the door, I'll mix up a shake to get me through the afternoon.
Only 13 more days till Surgery!
