After a cold, wet weekend here in Wisconsin, I’m hoping that we’ll have some sunny, semi-warm days ahead of us. After a week of laying low I’d like to get out and start walking a bit. Walking is always more fun when you aren’t cold and wet!
Last week was my first full week of convalescing since my surgery. I feel better than I expected which tends to make you forget that you aren’t operating at 100%. Not working and laying low is harder than you would expect but I did do it. I want to make sure that I don’t do anything to set me back, I want to make sure that when my leave is up I’m healthy and feeling good.
I’m using this time off work to make some changes to my eating habits. As you may know, my migraines have been worse the last couple of years, I’m exhausted all the time and have zero energy. Earlier this year I decided to take a hard look at my diet as I’m pretty sure that the way I was eating could potentially be creating some of my problems.
Eating healthy is certainly easier when you’re home all the time, at least for me! Included in my shopping list this week was fruit and herbs to make spa water. I’ve been enjoying a variety of different flavors this week. So far I think the strawberry and basil has been my favorite.
For breakfast I’ve been mixing it up with healthy cereal and eggs, later this week I’m wanting to try some overnight oatmeal. Lunches consist of either leftovers or healthy frozen meals (I like Amy’s frozen meals a lot.)
Since I’m home all day, Mike and I have decided to shake things up and make lunch our main meal when he’s working second shift. That way he’ll be home to help me cook, he actually get to eat his meal fresh (i.e. not reheated) and we get to eat together. It’s a win all around!
All of our meals on the menu this week are super easy to make. Even though I’m feeling good, I tire easily and I’m working hard to not overdo it
Pan Roasted Chicken
We’ll have leftovers at least once this week and most likely we’ll also do take-out at least once.
What’s on your menu?
