I’m in hiding.
With my honey.
Resting my eyes
and my brain and my dish pan hands. I am missing the whistler. I’m trying to pace myself with my digital usage. Just some pictures tonight.
I’m in hiding.
On vacation. And not only on vacation but vacation with a food plan that offers three courses at each meal. That’s glutinous for a weight loss surgery patient. I’m tired of all the food. I’m ready to get back to my go to food like my chocolate banana smoothie and my salsa chicken when I get home. I have to say I’ve done well and would recommend the Disney Meal Plan because you have easy access to good protein choices like eggs, salmon, fillet. Without a meal plan you’d be making selections from counter food which is just not conducive to a weight loss surgery food plan.
What a day we had yesterday. Since we knew we wanted to see the Electric Light Parade we hung out by the pool during the earlier part of the day. Although I’ve been a weight lost surgery patient since the year 2000 the idea of slinging my body into a swim suit always brings with it some concern. As some of you may know I’ve recently lost 10 pounds of regain and I must say I felt great in my swimsuit.
Reminds me while I am on vacation and am being challenged moment by moment that I have set up a few mantras that help me survive. So basically you are the only person who is going to keep the food out of your mouth. Your tiny tank helps to steer you. But if you truly want to you can still overeat. As overeaters we’ve all been there. Tiny tank. Too much food. Sick as a dog. Not pretty. My 7 year old son sometimes says to me Momma don’t eat the ice cream cause you know you will be on the couch later moaning. (not he’s exact words, he actually acts out what it will look like). Oh from the mouths of babes. The truth.
I’m exhausted tonight. But wanted to post some pictures from today. Specifically my failed three course meal.
We are at Disney World and we have a meal plan. Works well cause you get good food and better choices but there is no way in hell I can eat it all. Wish I could write more about how I’m feeling about tonight but I’ll have to save that for when I’m more awake. Needless to say I had course one and was done…
Well vacation is here. We made it. We are settled in. Everyone is asleep and my legs ache from walking. A good ache. I love to walk. So a Disney vacation is right up my alley. I’m blogging from my iPhone but here’s a quick rundown of my day: early plane, bus to resort, lunch, check in to room, off to Epcot, few rides, back to resort, freshen up, small meltdown by 7 year old(I don’t blame him), dinner at resort, some music in hotel lobby, swim in pool, showers, light parade in lagoon with fireworks, 30 more minutes of new movie on iPad (Tangled)…..
Less then 48 hours and counting and our family will be on vacation. I’ve been dreaming about how I will not have to prepare and or serve one meal and that I will be served three meals a day. Ahhhhhh… To be served. A dreamy concept. Not to mention NO DISHES! Getting out of my element is a way for me to recharge and I am so ready to be out of my element.
