31 Days, Day 6

Recap of Day 5.

No breakfast.
No lunch. 
[Reason: I was in chemo treatment from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., don't like to eat prior in case a reaction flares up.  That can get ugly, I dislike nausea.]
Dinner (5:00 p.m.): Frebird's World Butrrito.  Monster (14" tortilla) Whole Grain burrito.  Black beans, (un-) Refried Pinto beans (no oils, just mashed beans), roasted veggies, lots of cilantro, roasted garlic roasted lime, cilantro lime rice, pico de gallo, guacamole, salsa.
Evening snacks (7:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.): Larabars Key Lime Pie and Ginger Snap

HUGE burrito, but I WAS hungry by this point.  Did the best I could to locate something as close to McDougall friendly.  One of the two Whole foods/Health foods store in Midland has a cafe in it, but I was VERY surprised to see there was nothing vegan on the menu.  WOW.

Yesterday was World Smile Day.  I admit, even though I had this info pretty early in the morning, I may NOT have smiled as much as I could have.  I did spend a good deal of time sleeping during treatment (mostly to catch up from the previous week).  And, when awake, I was listening to Adele so not much to smile about (her songs are pretty sad).

Thinking I have to recapture some semblance of "control" over my life, so Sunday I will start C25K.  Just to get some movement and try to regain energy levels.  I read an article on how important exercise is to cancer patients, so I am getting moving.  I don't have any distinct goals in mind yet, but I am sure as I see how my body takes to the movement, I will set at least one.  I really want to run a 5K with my (x)wife, and also  do at least one more half marathon.  We shall see.


  1. The burrito sounds awesome! Praying for you this weekend.

    1. You could come close if there is no Freebird's in your area with a Chipotle or Moe's since they are all pretty much the same deal.

      And thanks for praying. So far so good. Since I made it through Friday with no issues, and was able to get out of bed this morning, I think I am good.
