3 weeks-post op

My hospital stay is a distant blur now.  My incisions are still healing with some scabs.  I still have some tenderness on my left side, doesn't really hurt, just a pulling if I bendover too fast or too far.

Healthy Eating-I'm able to add well cooked soft veggies like string beans, squash, beans, asparagus tips & carrots back into my diet this week.  I'm keeping my protein mostly around 70grams.  I found out that hummus is going to be a problem food for me.  I love the stuff too much, I mean it is healthier than some others binge foods I eat but I will have to buy it occasionally to keep it under control.

Fitness- I'm still walking mostly 3x a day . Today I replaced my noon walk with 20 mins on elliptical
& life cycle at the gym just to see how it felt.  I was surprised how quickly I tired so I will try to continue while slowly increasing levels/time.

ONWARD!

  3. What were you eating with your hummus? I love hummus, but hate to eat it with pita bread (just because its bread). Any ideas?

    1. I use it as a veggie dip normally but I have been eating it as a meal right now because of its high protein & is soft, I'm not allowed raw veggies for 2 more weeks

  4. You can buy the single serve hummus cups - those help me keep it under control. Sorta. ;)
