protein shake

Day 9 Post Op by Nate Geballe

Today is a new day! I am on stage two of my new meal plan! Soups! Pudding! Yogurt! Almond Milk! FUCK YEAH! The constant protein shakes, water and occasional chicken broth was making me feel shitty. I haven't had solid food in over two weeks. That's crazy to me. No wonder I keep having dreams about stealing and eating EVERYONE's mac n' cheese. Haha. 

I haven't really shot in a couple of days. Makes me feel down on this project. That I'm not doing enough. But honestly, I JUST HAD MAJOR SURGERY! I am doing ENOUGH! But I will say this, I will make more of an effort to shoot a little and do more video diaries. That is a must. Must must must. 

Today I FEEL excited? Weird...

Day 5 Post Op by Nate Geballe

Yesterday was really difficult. I never imagined I would feel that shitty. Every time I thought about a protein shake I wanted to throw up. I managed to get two down which is 60 grams of protein. That is 15 grams less than the minimum I need daily. I'm so scared of malnutrition. I DON'T want to lose my hair!

I didn't shoot yesterday. I didn't have the strength to set it all up. I was too tired. I take walks during the day but they only last about five minutes before I think I'm getting too tired. I will shoot today. I have help today. Today I will be ok. 

Today I FEEL better than yesterday. Thank gawd.
