On to mushies...Yippee

I actually get to move on to mushies today!!!!

I thought it might be beneficial for people to see the portions of what I have been eating.

1/2 protein shake(made with 16oz skim milk 1 scoop protein)
1 cup of egg drop soup--just broth
1/2 protein shake
3 16 oz crystal lights throughout day

3/4 protein shake
1 cup hot and sour soup--just broth
3/4 protein shake
3 16 oz crystal lights throughout day

3/4 protein shake
1/2 c egg beaters(southwestern) 2 tblspn colby cheese

I have not been real hungry this week...which is good and bad.  I know I am not getting my protein in and I know I need more calories.  Prior to tuesday it was broth and sf popcicles ...I couldn't really get a protein shake down without it hurting so I stopped doing them.
I can feel my appetite picking up today but I am going to try to follow my nutrionists plan which is 1/2c of food 4 times a day and 2 shakes as supplements...I don't think the first few days this next week I will be able to get all that down but I am aiming for it and making sure I measure it out because I really don't have a firm grasp on 1/2cup.
I did try to go for an hour walk yesterday but only made it 45minutes and I was exhausted...tried to hitchhike home but nobody would pick me up...I was sweating buckets probably not attractive--jk.
Today I am sore from walking and lucky me....TOM arrived...I haven't had that in over 2 years but then my doctor made me miss my depo shot in January so I knew it would come.  So are the cramps from TOM or surgery...really?
I did go shopping yesterday, its so warm here that Johnny needed some new shorts and tops so I hit Childrens place and power shopped...I ended up sweaty but he needed some clothes.  Today is first day back at work (I should say virtually as I sit in my recliner) already a few stressful moments and I could feel the tension in my shoulders.
I have a new friend...my band talks to me ALL DAY LONG..its so noisy.  My hubby actually can hear it and at times ask me to repeat and I have to tell him its my tummy talking not me! LOL! 
I am down another couple of pounds.  I hit 253 today so I will update my ticker.
Thats all folks.
