Day 5...9 to go....
Well it is day 5, not craving sweets really anymore which is good...still think OMG I want one when I walk by those damn reeses eggs :-( but I am resisting the Easter candy! :-) Yesterday was tough towards the end of the day...due to the lack of calories (only about 500-600 a day) I am getting pretty tired at the end of the day, not sleepy tired, but my body is just worn out. I am actually going to call the doctor this morning and see if there is any suggestions and make sure that this calorie count is what they really want. I am completely off coffee, however every few days I am allowing myself a few sips because eventually after surgery I intend to be a coffee drinker again if I can because I love it!
Since every one is on a different pre-op diet I figured I would share mine because everyone seems pretty shocked about the calories :-) My diet is for the two weeks before surgery. My three meals consist of 1.5oz of protein, 2oz of veggies or fruit, but I tend to go for the veggies because they keep me full longer. Then in between the three meals I have 8oz of milk with protein powder. If I get hungry at all in between I am having a sugar free popsicle or sugar free fat free jello, but really I am usually only having that after dinner.
Anyways.... I am hoping these two weeks go by fast because I am ready to have my surgery and start recovering. :-) Have a fantastic day!
Oh almost forgot there is a great tip on the blog "The world according to Egg Face" and I am going to put this on my list. I just love her blog!! here is the link:
