Today was my first day back on solid food, and I have to say that in just one day I feel so much stronger and after one last bout of diarrhea this morning, my body seems to be adjusting well. I kept my diet simple today, mainly fresh fruit, a small salad for lunch and a 2egg/1egg white and green pepper omelet for dinner. I had a little bit of a stomach ache this morning after eating a very little bit of fruit, so I actually had to eat it in 2 separate sittings. The same thing happened with my small salad for lunch. I did much better with dinner.
I am feeling extremely well right now. I have been drinking water all day long as well. I'm pretty sure I was losing nutrients rather quickly, and this week it just hit me pretty hard.
So, here's the new plan..I will be eating very clean..fresh fruits/veggies/chicken/fish/brown rice/lots and lots of water! I will be avoiding sugar and white flour as much as possible. I will continue to log what I eat each day as well as continue to update this blog and do weekly weigh ins.
I also feel like my strength is coming back quickly enough to begin a more consistent exercise regimen in the next week. I have not felt strong enough since the beginning of the liquid diet to do any real exercise. I kept waiting for my body to adjust so I could start to work out at the gym. Now I know that this was not a normal reaction to the shakes, and I was not going to "adjust"..
I am not at all discouraged, I am just changing gears a little bit but still striving for the same goals..
I am once again over-whelmed by the love of my friends and family who have sent messages of love to me! Thank you for praying and for loving me...
