Four days at the hospital!!!!!! Was this a planned procedure, or some sort of accident!? Hope you're doing well either way!
And--- heck no, don't weigh yourself in after IV fluids. Your body's probably rocking all kinds of crazy dehydration/re-hydration insanity, who knows what the scale would say. Better to wait, I vote!
As for me,
I weighed in at work this morning (along with 15 of my colleagues for our Biggest Loser), and was pleased to discover that I *only* gained .2 lbs. (And that more than half of my coworkers gained, eep.)
Being at 170.0
a week after being 169.8
(given that I was sick as a dog, eating a teensy bit questionably and not working out ONCE for a whole week), I am pleased as punch.
I'm also not changing my ticker, because I intend to lose .2 lbs in the next day or so.
Back to the grind! I ate like a saint today (only when hungry, only until full, and selecting MOSTLY healthy options!), and went to the gym with a coworker at lunch.
Healthy Dish of the Week (Unlikely to be repeated next week, cause I rarely cook/bake...!)
I also made black bean brownies this weekend (say whaaaaat!) which are pretty damn good for you, and taste SURPRISINGLY
good, given that they're made mainly with black beans, rolled oats, cocoa powder, syrup and chocolate chips.
I gave a few out at work and people were shocked about the ingredients. They really do have the same texture as normal brownies...
