Yes... I am a backslider. But not for long.

Fall Break, which was the first two weeks of October for me, really threw me off track. I had minor surgery on 10/4 - which went well for the most part. I DID come down with a case of MRSA, which doesn't surprise me because whenever I'm in the hospital, no matter how hard I try to prevent it, I get some sort of staph. Ugh. And I am still "healing" from my surgery site... which is driving me insane. 

**ok... this is the part where it may be TMI**

I had some abnormal tissue removed from my cervix, and also had an endometrial ablasion at the same time. Although my doc says it's normal, I am still spotting. Not a lot, but enough that I have to wear a pad. And it's DRIVING ME CRAZY. I feel like I've been on my period for over three weeks. I know someone in blogland understands what I'm going through...

**end of TMI**

Ok... so with being sick, and not feeling like my "normal" self, my eating has been off track. I can't blame it all on surgery, though. A lot of it has to do with being "happy". I have a new special someone in my life, and that person was around a lot during Fall break. My in-laws also came to visit for almost a week. This means that I cooked a lot more than I normally do. And because I am a good cook, I usually eat my food and enjoy it.

See where I'm going?

Well, almost like a sign from GOD, I got a nice little package from Slim Fast in the mail on Saturday. They have new and improved shakes that I was happy to agree to try... everyone knows I love a good shake!

"Slim·Fast is shedding the can to introduce its new, best-tasting shake ever – all inside a convenient, on-the-go bottle. The new shakes are creamy, rich and feature 10 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber and 24 essential vitamins and minerals."

I had a shake for breakfast this morning, and they really are good! But I thought the old Slim-Fast in a can was good, too. I am definitely going to be using these to get back on track. Today was a crazy day both at work and at home, so I do admit to doing some stress eating. But I have already planned my meals for the next three days, so I am ready to keep going back in the right direction. I haven't weighed, but I know I have gained. 'Tis life, and just part of my journey. I will get back on track... NOW.

Who's with me?

Stay tuned for my next post... I've got some Sephora gift cards that are burning a hole in my pocket!
