Happy Mother’s Day!
I went to church today for the first time since surgery. It’s a glorious day here in Florida. Perfect temperature with that kiss of humidity. Dang I love it here!
I feel normal again (mostly). I’ve found that I have enough energy to get through the day, but thats it. Bed by 10. No late nights for me yet.
Tuesday I leave for Oregon. Teaching a couple workshops there. I’ve been really worried about it. Not the teaching portion, love that, but I feared having no energy and was really stressed about what I’d be able to eat.
I’ve been stressing about how/what to eat since before the gastric bypass. It’s not too complex, but it’s different. Well, I guess it’s a little complex. I was worried about screwing it up. I really didn’t want to screw it up. Clear liquids first, transition to full liquids, then puree/blenderized, onto a soft diet, and finally after several months – “normal diet”. Each level comes with their own specific foods and instructions. Reading through it left my head spinning. I wondered how I would keep it all straight.
I finally had to let the anxiety go. I told myself I would take one day at a time. So far thats working pretty well.
