On Vacation

Filed Under My Thoughts | Leave a Comment

For anyone who follows this blog…

I’m on vacation, currently in Nebraska visiting family, then off to see Monument Valley, Bryce Canyon and Zion Nat’l Parks.

I am eating as healthy as I can, being very careful of my choices. With my surgery date looming in just a couple of months, I can’t afford to gain any weight! I’m eating as much salad as I can, and enjoying the fresh from the hoof (almost) beef on my Aunt’s farm. I must admit to also enjoying the fresh from the stalk bi-color corn on the cob too. I have passed up the pies, cookies and chocolate puddings that my lovely aunt loves making, so I think I’m doing well. The fresh fruit I am eating in moderation. Strawberries, cantaloupe and watermelon fresh from the patch…

I eat my protein snacks for mid-afternoon and nighttime when I need a little something, and trying to only eat protein of some kind for breakfast. Lunch and dinner I eat what I’m served, but that’s how it’s done in farming country. Aunt is very nice in trying to cater to my dietary needs, so it’s going fairly well.
