Holy Crap...

Well. I got it. I got my surgery date. It's for June 27th. I'm so excited. That leaves 10 days before I have to start my pre-op diet which they require me to do 7 days prior and the day before surgery has to be clear liquids only with no red dyes.


I'm stoked. So I've been getting things ready. I ordered 9 sample packs from Unjury 3 each in the chocolate splendor, chicken soup and unflavored packets for $1.99 each so that was $17.91 plus S&H. Then I got a sampler kit of Syntrax Nectar packets. It comes with 11 packets in a variety of flavors including Apple Ecstasy, Cappucino, Caribbean Cooler, Chocolate truffle, Crystal Sky, Fuzzy Navel, Lemon Tea, Pink Grapefruit, Roadside Lemonade, Strawberry Kiwi, Strawberry Mousse, Twisted Cherry and Vanilla Bean Torte. It came to be the same price as the Unjury including S&H. I'm fairly impressed. I know I can find ways to like the taste of the majority of these flavors in some form or another.


So I have the protein taken care of, for now. I feel better about that. I have a few samples to try here at home to get use to that taste. I don't particularly like it. But I have another shopping list I need to take care of that consists of some soy milk and yogurt, various liquids that are not a thick form, like vitamin water, etc. I need to get some broth to water down or some no sodium bouillon cubes and some SF popsicles. Lots of people seem to have lived by those and maybe still do. They also said I can find no added sugar or low sugar preserve juice from Smucker's. I guess that's pretty neat. I will look at the nutrition facts and see about those. I loves me some juice!


Other than that I'm just trying to take it easy and get in any last bit of shopping I need to do directly before the next 10 days comes too fast. I have to overnight ship the last papers of the financing stuff. So once I can get that expensive crap taken care off I'll feel a lot better. Eric needs to get his side sent in, too. I just hope he can get it in with no problems.

I read that soy milk has estrogen in that can hold on to fat, one glass a day is good, but I'd mix it up a bit - I bought this delicious almond milk - it's called "So Delicious - Almond Milk Plus" it has added protein as a bonus - like 5 grams of protein, so will help get that extra protein in, and it only has 1 grams of carbs, and 40 calories, and 2 grams of fat, very low sodium too. Gives my choco-coconut protein powder mix a nice nutty flavor.

Yeah they suggest the almond milk over the soy milk. They told me not to mix a lot of soy milk in one time, but with PCOS I don't think I have much issue with having "too much" estrogen as we are lacking a bit of it, lol.

If you mean for the Syntrax Nectar it's one serving per packet with 8 oz of water or almond milk, whatever you want really. Same for Unjury.
