Sometimes it's hard to be good!

Monday, January 25, 2016

This past week was full of good and bad choices or no choices. It started with traveling to Lexington this past Tuesday evening. I went ahead and splurged for dinner know it was probably my last decent meal for sometime. Steak, baked potato and a salad. You see this is the week we have been working up to Since July. Hubby was to finally have his shoulder replacement. I didn't want to get a salad and have to be jealous of his fabulous looking steak!!

Wednesday morning we were greeted at our 5am wake time with 2-3 inches of snow. We got ready and made out way to the Gil Heart Center where he was to check in and then go await being taken to pre-op. All went well. Being as I knew he would be hungry from not being able to eat or drink after mid-night I stashed a banana and an apple in my bag and waited until I was kicked out of pre-op before consuming my banana with a coffee and bottle of water.

My plan had been to go to the cafeteria and have lunch, but I could not tear myself away from the notification board. His surgery was to be at 8am and he wasn't taken into the OR until 9:23. This made me nervous and I didn't want to carry around our heavy bags (he was being admitted after surgery) anyway, so I tried to nap a little, hard to do in a large room full of people talking. By the tie lunch time came I settled for eating my apple.

What should have been 3 hours turned into 5 and before we even made it to a room it was 5:30. They brought him dinner and I made the sensible choice of having a salad from the salad bar. I made good choices throughout the time we were there and then we came home and I continued to make good choices. I've done good since then, but then I had a bisquick with butter and jelly last night, lol Oh well!

I haven't been on the scales in a week and don't want to for now! I am following a plan again. Starting over again now that he is on the road to recovery! With that said, I am pleased with how I did! Even the sugar free pineapple upside down cake wasn't over kill! I added pecans for protein and healthy fats! Yay me!!

    Good news about his surgery. As for eating, what's wrong with an occasional steak or with a biscuit?

    By the way, your picture in the blog's background with you in a dress and sitting on a bench is my favorite one. emoticon ~~ Lou
