Camping 2 weeks post-op. Hmmmm…

So I am completely. Utterly. Exhausted. And we still have two more days to go. 

Today we went on a 6-hour deep sea fishing trip. I fished and it was fun but toward the end I was feeling the strain on my stomach pretty good from reeling all those fish in. Not to mention I was running on water and protein shakes alone for the day. 

We went to an all you can eat crab- leg buffet for dinner and my husband kind of made me feel bad because we had to pay for me even though I could only eat 4 oz of boiled shrimp and a little crab. But what was I supposed to do- wait in the car? And I was staaaaarving! I needed real protein. He wouldn’t have cared only the bill was $150. He’s been ill the rest of the evening since. Ah, well, I guess we all have adjustments to make on this lifestyle change, huh?

It’s been really tough sticking with good decisions on this trip. I’m surrounded by camper food and snacks and I’m just plain hungry. At least I’m getting full when I eat now but the in-between I get pretty hungry.  Trying to drink even more to combat that but that sort of makes me nauseated. 

There’s an early red-tide in Panama City right now which is bringing dead fish to to beaches and worst of all the sand flies that bite. We went yesterday and just couldn’t take the flies anymore after an hour. Trying again tomorrow and fingers crossed the flies are scarce. Plan is to beach bum it all day…

My cousin wanted to go shopping after dinner tonight but I literally couldn’t hang- physically I’ve hit a wall. It’s to be expected in only two weeks out, not stressing about it, just listening to my body best I can. 

So enjoying my time so far but definitely ready for bed this evening lol. 

Hope you’re all doing something great for yourself this weekend! 

Until tomorrow….xoxo

Amanda
