Carly, when you say do I have a set eating plan and exercise, well, I asked the dr straigt after my colonoscopy if I could do a spin class the following monday, he said nothing for 2 weeks. He said you realise you will be sitting on a hard bike seat
I'm still not allowed to do any cardio or weights for another week. I think they are over concerned, there were no incisions.
As far as eating plan, just trying to stay with 1200 or 1300 cals, requires creativity. I look at trying to eat 3 meals with 3 snack divided into 1300 cals.
If I could only get excited and find that its not that choresome being creative. I have bookmarked with sticky notes all favourite recipes out of the heart foundation cookbook and the csiro diet book and of course recipes here. I have already had chicken salad with green leaves sweet potato and sweet chilli sauce, but that one did not even hit the sides of my tummy.
I just have the get physched not matter what it will take, if you got some tricks and tips up your sleeve I'd love that. I hate the cellulite the most and my higher cholesterol. My back is a bit fat too. ick
