My husband complimented me on the selection of photos that I put in my blog, but he wanted to make sure I corrected the information I gave regarding the Mayflower II. I didn't realize that the ship was positioned where the Bow was facing the land. I assumed that it was the Stern! Now, I do know the difference between the Bow & the Stern, if only I had looked more closely! LOL. Am I redder than normal? Well, I should be at any rate!
Now, I am also going to say that my first day on the Pre-Op Diet wasn't my best. I didn't even have my first drink until about 3pm when I made my first Protein Drink (& that was only after my husband got on to me about not eating or drinking correctly). Luckily for me (as I do not do well with drinks that don't taste very good (think gagging & throwing up)), I remembered reading on one of the blogs I follow that she found a powdered Protein drink mix called Premium that you can purchase in Costco that actually tasted good.
So I high tailed it to Costco & bought my first bag of mix. It is a 6 lb bag, makes 70 servings & only costs $28.99 (about half the cost & made twice as much as the Protein Drink mix being sold by the Surgeons office)!! I haven't tasted the Vanilla, but the Chocolate actually doesn't taste bad (of course, I mixed it with fat free milk instead of water to thicken it a bit)(we'll see how much I continue to like it after having to drink it for at least 3 wks!). So, my day started out bad as far a dieting goes. I obviously didn't follow it completely, I only had one of the 300 cal or less meals, & only 2 of the shakes with a string cheese, but at least my calorie count was within the correct range.
I also forgot to make sure that I still had a pitcher, to make my sugar free Kool-Aid, for my water intake. I wasn't able to find the pitcher, by the way. Now, I don't drink coffee or tea. The only thing I normally drink is Caffeine Free Diet Coke. So I have to find a substitute for my water intake, hence the Kool-Aid. I also don't drink water much, duh! However, we will be putting in a water filtration so we can get some good tasting water, but until then, I HAVE to down my water with Kool-Aid for sure.
So, I had to make a special run to our local CVS (Long's) Drug Store to purchase the stupid pitcher. So, I know I was bad, bad, bad today, but I will start & follow my diet religiously beginning tomorrow. I will also be taking photos, measurements & checking my weight tomorrow so I have a good idea of the changes I will be going through. So until tomorrow.
