Hey all, so Day 1 went ok. I did get up early and rode my exercise bike for a half hour. I turned up the intensity/resistance to 7 so it was harder than normal (I keep it at a 4 most of the time). Lots of sweat so that is a good sign.
Started off well with eating..had a few minor slips here and there but all in all pretty good.
Breakfast: Honey Nut Cheerios with Almond Milk
Lunch: Half bbq chicken salad and cup of chicken noodle soup from Panera with wheat roll
Snack: 2 pumpkin muffins (made with just pumpkin and cake mix - they were good!) and 6 Candy Corn Pumpkins.
Dinner: Grilled chicken salad
Yes. I gave in on the pumpkins. But really, 6 pumpkins is nowhere near as bad as it could have been...
Am I rationalizing? Maybe. I promised you I would blog the truth, so here it is. Good, bad, and in-between. :)
One VERY positive decision I made today - I packaged up the rest of the candy corn and gave it to someone upstairs.
I have an appointment tomorrow morning with an ortho doc/podiatrist. Hoping he sends me right away for the MRI so I can get that done quickly and know before the week is out what the prognosis is. I learned tonight that this particular doctor is big on casts. That will NOT be fun especially given I am traveling all week next week. But at worst, I think I'll end up with an air boot. We'll see.
Will let you know how tomorrow goes! Got another date with the exercise bike in the morning - scintillating! Yeah, a little sarcasm never hurt anyone, right?
It's all good.
