Bummer……

December 5, 2012

I went to the Orthopedic Surgeon on Tuesday for further evaluation of my shoulder. He would like me to get an MRI to take a better look at my Rotator Cuff. If there is a tear, then surgery, if no tear, then lots more physical therapy. Due to the time of year and insurance and deductibles and all that fun stuff, I now need to wait EVEN LONGER (after Jan. 1) to find out exactly what is going on, which means Bootcamp is even more prolonged. The Dr., who I really did like, actually told me I could go to Bootcamp if I wanted to, which I really do, and that I could not do more damage to my shoulder, I would just have to do something to manage the pain from using my shoulder. I am meeting with the owner of the Bootcamp on Thursday to get his opinion. I want the most out of Bootcamp, and I have no clue what to do.

🙁

Just frustrated and wanting to get back to a routine……

Tuesdays eats!

Coffee with milk and a nanner.
1 PPV

Later, before my appointment, I had some extra time, so I hit a McDonalds drive thru and grabbed a coffee and an oatmeal. I ordered the Oatmeal plain, and forgot to get any sweeteners. I had about four bites, but it didn’t taste to great, so I tossed the rest.

2 PPV?

Lunch was a salad at a restaurant where a friend of mine is a bartender. After my appointment, I felt a little stressed and needed an ear. So I hit my local pub. 🙂

I ordered the grilled chicken salad with the best ever FF Balsamic Vinaigrette.
Goat cheese, olives, pine nuts, tomatoes, red onions…..
(I had water and coffee)

10 PPV

After a little Christmas shopping, a Vita Cake and hot tea.

1 PPV

Later, I had an apple.

0 PPV

Then I had some pistacios.

4 PPV

Then I had a WW Fudge Bar

3 PPV

I think all of the afternoon snacking was due to stress thinking about the possibility of surgery. Needless to say, when dinner rolled around, (I actually did cook) I just wasn’t hungry. We have a really high deductible, so if surgery is necessary, it’s gonna be a big chunk of cash. Happy New Year!

Mike says I worry too much. I’m a WOMAN! It’s what we do!

Later, I had a Bagel Thin, Cheese Wedge and Hot Tea.
4 PPV

Refresh…I can eat 26 points a day.
I can earn Activity Points by doing exercise.
I have an allowance of 49 points that I can dip into if I chose.
I should drink a minimum of 6 (8 oz) glasses of water each day.

The food I ate today and it’s PPV.

Breakfast = 1
Snack = 2
Lunch = 10
Snack = 1
Snack = 0
Snack = 4
Dinner = 4

Total = 25

Activity Points Earned Today = 0
Remaining points from my 49 Points Allowance = 9
How many glasses of water I drank today = 6

I figure at least my snacks were nuts and an apple and a small cake full of vitamins, and when I went to McDonalds, I got an Oatmeal, so really not a terrible day.

I didn’t get any exercise in, so that kinda sucks.

We leave for a beach vacation in 6 weeks. I decided this time when I joined WW (three years ago), that it was for my health, not for a vacation or a wedding or a special occasion. That’s still true, but since I am having such a hard time getting through the 160’s, I would be happy to go on vacation at 164, since that would be my lowest weight since joining WW. So I am trying to get there.

Make it a great day!
