I survived

Last week was craziness, but I survived. Survived the move, the extra hours at my second job, survived the wedding rehearsal, and then the wedding (which was beautiful). Congrats to my BF's brother and new sister in law!
We got all moved in, and mostly unpacked. I see a weekend of painting in my near future! :)
Funny story.. so my man was unpacking some clothes, and he headed to the kitchen. He said, "Honey, I am making you dinner tonight." I was excited, so I went into the kitchen to find this....
Not my CHINCHILLA!!! Poor Inca. Don't cook her.

Don't worry, no animals were harmed in the making of our home! :)  This man truly makes me laugh all the time!

So I saw my surgeon last week. They gave me my prescription, took my "before" pic, made me sign my life away, and my pre/post op diet instructions. It was very interesting to read what they want me to do. All this time I was preparing for a 2 week liquid diet, when in fact, they want me to eat low/no carb, low fat, diet. SOLID FOOD. They did say that if I am vegetarian or cannot follow the diet, to go on the liquid diet. Very interesting to me. I think the best plan of action is to prepare all meals in advance so I don't screw up. I start next Monday!!!!
I love my nurses and doctor by the way. They were just so excited for me and told me I had the right attitude to rock this. I sure hope so!


  1. My surgeon didn't require a pre-op diet. I think I could have handled low carb/fat diet, but I for sure could not handle a liquid diet for very long. Good luck with it!!!

  2. I had to loose 4 lbs in the 2 weeks before surgery and the said that could be a liquid diet or through a low calorie diet. Every surgeon is different.

  3. Lol @ the photo. Awesomeness.

    My preop was strict low carb. No "white" (rice, bread, pasta, potatos etc.) So I did a strict Atkins diet and had no issues. Lost 20 pounds in the month preop.

    I was too afraid to cheat. lol. Didn't want to get closed up without a band!

    1. I was thinking of doing the Atkins thing (Again) in order to get some recipes. I am a horrible meal planner. I figure I will just spend this weekend prepping everything so I don't have a choice. :)
