Getting better bit by bit. I am just hoping to be walking pain free very soon. That would be a giant step forward. I was feeling pretty blue this morning about the whole thing. I just wish I had a timeline, you know?
Very sad clown here…. I made a comforting bowl of banana oats this morning, topped with some Nuttzo and jam.
I don’t know if I will ever go back to not adding egg whites to my oatmeal anymore! I am hooked.
I am looking into getting a foam roller. I want to make sure I keep my back and leg muscles stretched out, and there is a specific roller exercise for sciatica, so that will be on the list. I just need to find the right size roller, I guess.
Lunch was cobbled together with the last of the baby carrots, and a super unripe kiwi!
Dang, that was even more tart than the one I had last week. No wonder they were on sale. I need to let the other sit for a few days before eating.
One bonus to not working out in the morning is that I can start work early and be done early. I was finished by 3!
Afternoon snack time:
One of John’s brownies. I was going to ask for the recipe, but they really are a bit dry and not as good as they look (sorry J!).
I waddled outside afterward to try and take a walk. I made it this far:
Our house is the 2nd one down. I had to turn back and come home because of the pain. I should have gotten the crutches out for the walk, but I hadn’t needed them walking around the house.
Dinner time was some chicken topped with a laughing cow wedge and salsa – you must try this because it was soo good!
Yum! John asked me if I wanted to go out for coffee this evening to cheer me up. Of course I won’t say no that, as you well know. It worked:
That’s my favorite travel mug – see how beat up it is? I just can’t find one to replace it that is just right. John on the other hand,has a ton of travel mugs. Not pictured is the muffin I had with this….
Had to cover up the rose bushes tonight. Temps are supposed to drop to 27! Hope they make it.
Question: Do any of you use a foam roller?
