How does one be healthy 7 days post op?

As you know I had my tonsils removed on January 11th.  Here it is January 18th and I'm still in a lot of pain but getting back to 100% slowly and surely.

I kind of have joked that the upside to this surgery is weight loss.  Well weight loss I have succeeded at thus far.  Since January 11th I've lost 11 pounds.  Granted this is not a healthy way to lose weight but heck I'll take it.

During this time I've still made choices on what to put into my body.  Granted my diet right now consists of jello, yogurt, sherbet, mashed potatoes and other soft foods.  I realize right now that I could feast on ice cream,  heavy mac and cheese, etc.  Don't get me wrong I have but in very small doses.  Not only because I just can't eat it but I don't want to over do it.

Something that I've learned is that my body can't take the bad for me foods much anymore and honestly that makes me happy.  I really long for the day that I can eat a salad, salmon, chicken, green beans, etc.

I have been following doctors orders and not working out but I'll be honest it's KILLING me.  I miss my sweat so bad.  I can't wait to get my fat ace back into the gym and kill her!  So that I'm not a total bum while recovering I have been getting up every day, showering, putting on make up, doing my hair, going for little walks around the house, today we went to the apple store to learn about using some software so I got that little walk in.  After the apple store I did come home and sleep for about 2 hours.  So I'm still moving and still getting lots of rest just like the doctor ordered.

So I just read this and really it doesn't make much sense and I'm rambling but oh well...This is me...I'm all jacked up on pain meeds (to the toon of "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby" when Ricky Bobby's son says "I'm going to come at you like a spider monkey, I'm all jacked up on Mountain Dew Chip.") 

Until next time...get out there, eat well, work out hard and watch "Talladega Nights"
