Week 3: MUSHIES!

Oh yes, bye bye soups!!! Last night we got a head start on the mushie stage because we were both in dire need for some proper food. I decided to make canneloni and while technically probably not a traditional "mushie" food, it is pretty soft. And it was AWESOME. Ate about half what I normally would and was totally full. This morning I was awoken with scrambled eggs in bed. Too good. Could only eat about half so Westie got a nice breakfast too!

 Of course now that we are starting to eat food again I fully expect to put on a couple of kilos. We're going to try and increase our exercise to compensate for the extra calories though so hopefully it won't be too bad. I've still got a bit of port pain when I twist but I really want to get back on the exercise horse so to speak. I'm going to try to do 5-10mins on the cross trainer each night to begin with and build up from there. We're also going to increase our nightly walk and build up some speed.

I've never noticed so many food adverts on TV as I have in the past week and a half off work. Seriously. Even stuff I would never normally eat (Hot chicken roll from Chicken Treat), I've seen advertised and thought - mmm that would go down well! I'm sure these thoughts will diminish now I'm off the liquid stage and actually able to eat some food!

Em :)


  1. Oh, those food ads - they are killing me. I'm so going to get a DVR so I can time shift and not see them. Pringles, I'm talking to you!

    Start slowly on the extra exercise - it can't hurt to keep moving.

  2. Hi Em,
    Saw your blog address on the yahoo site and thought I'd take a look.

    Love your information and humor, but can't get past this post because Im still on liquids and I can't cope with all this talk about food.

    Will bookmark you and look forward to following your journey.

    Im 10 days banded and coping well, but all that chat about chips, sausage rolls, canaloni etc - Wooo its too much, Im off to have my mulitvitamin, and will be back after I have a full tummy.

    Good luck
