It has been 12 days since my surgery and today I decided to try and bring some type of workout back into my routine. I started eating solid foods again sometime last week (Day 9, I think), but I haven’t really been eating too well (healthy). I’m technically supposed to stick to light activities, but I was getting restless. Also, I think my lowest weight was around 170 lbs, but I’m up to 7 lbs as of this morning. I think that has to do a little with my poor diet and a little because I am drinking more fluids.
Today I decided that I wanted to walk and try jogging/running for a bit. I walked a mile and then jogged/ran another mile, but it was really difficult. About 3/4 the way through, my throat was really burning. The scabs where my tonsils haven’t disappeared yet, so when it gets dry or if I breathe heavy (like when running), it can irritate the throat. I had hoped to jog/run one more mile, but I decided against it and just walked another mile. My time was pretty bad, I ran the mile in about 10 minutes 45 seconds, which is higher than what I normally run.
I was hungry after the workout and was happy that my mom was cooking something healthy, or so she said. When I got home, however, she had decided to just put pizza in and made a salad. If I would have known that was what we were having, I would have laid something out and cooked something for myself. However, I was super tired and just ate what she had made. Tomorrow I hope to be way better when it comes to eating healthy. I need to get back into the swing of things.
Tomorrow I want to do some at home workouts, probably some ab stuff, push ups, sit ups, etc. I might try to go for another walk/jog/run, but we’ll see. I can’t wait to be completely healed so that I can do more than what I can currently do. It will probably take some time to get back to where I was before all of my medical problems started, but I’m ok with that. I think I can keep my weight down around 180 lbs if I start getting back into things now, which is a lower weight than what I weighed before I got sick (188 lbs).
I hope to have more updates and to post more regularly. I might also change the title of this and make a tag so that I can create a page for these update things. That might be a horrible sentence, but I’m tired and I don’t care. Good night!
