I have been away so long.. I feel like a newbie again. So, its been what, about 3 weeks post op?
-incisions are pretty well healed
-less pain than before
-everything was benign and the hysterectomy took care of the endometriosis I did not know I had.. no friggin wonder.
-no more percoset just the 600 Ibuprofen
-sleep is elusive and 3:30am is my nemesis. I am taking melatonin but so far, no such luck. In the last 3 weeks the only time I slept through the night I had a toddy (tea, honey and rum) and a 600 ibuprofen. Not something I can do nightly.
-I am on an estrogen patch since I am too young for complete menopause. Apparently I need some to help thwart osteoparosis and a host of other issues for a time. I flash a bit but mostly can not regulate my body temperature. Doc says this is normal.. pfft! HOW WOULD HE KNOW? Oh did I mention the occasional mood swing? Duck!
-my shaking hands have increased. Lucky me I found out "essential tremors" run in the family. Crafting has become a bit difficult.
-Went for a med check with my MD and he would like to see me "aggressively lose weight and increase my fitness" in the coming months. Umm yeah..ok
So, for the past few weeks.. to be honest I have eaten what I wanted when I was hungry. I know its time to start getting back on track and I feel like such a noob. Ok so I bought some whey protein (no whole 30 at least for now) and now just have to find the energy to make the right foods instead of eating foods of convenience. Its 8:30 and I have not eaten anything yet.. going to make some eggs I think.. I still have a headache from yesterday. Here is something I think as well.. tell me how far off I am:
If you eat low fat, you could have natural sugars (I am thinking fruit) or moderate carbs, If you eat high fat you need to eat low to no carbs so very little natural sugars. Protein should remain the same in both counts. Am I right, or have I totally lost it? I have my primal blueprint book next to me but to be honest, my head hurts to bad to go back and read read read..
I have missed you all while I have been gone. I will be catching up on your journals.
