Water, water everywhere and all of it I drink


Today I am feeling waterlogged. Liquid diets can do that to me. 
My food chart today looks like this:
8am- core power-4 oz
9 am- decaf coffee- 4 oz
10am- core power- 4 oz
11am- frozen sf popcicle 
1130am- water- 2oz
1230pm- core power 4 oz
1pm water- 2 oz
230pm- beef broth w/ Worcestershire sauce- 6 oz
330pm core power- 4oz

Yeah, you get the point. I'm not complaining, I'm just ready to chew something. 
I'm still not getting 60g of protein and 64 oz of fluids. I'm working on it. 
Sarge got me GasX thin strips last night. This made my tummy very happy. 

I am still very distended in my belly area from surgery. It was not like this after I had my gallbladder removed, so I will ask the doctor about it on Thursday. I'm sure it will go down as I start walking again. I walk some, but I'm not on the treadmill yet. Again, I'll ask on Thursday when I might be able to get back to exercising. Maybe not quite ready as I still feel pain when I walk or bend. Yesterday I felt better, so I did 5 loads of laundry, vacuumed the floors and cleaned kitty areas. Yeah..should not have done that. Today has been a lot of sitting with 10 minutes of walking each hour. Mostly walking to the bathroom to get rid of all the fluids. My kidneys are happy! 
I did get a referral from my pcp to see a specialist about the cyst. I go in on the 16th. Yay! It will soon be evicted from my body. 
I think I will change it up and have some sf jello. Mmmm

It certainly sounds like a Marathon, not 100 yard dash, you are working it, and sharing, thank you!
