Thanks for the cheer ups from yesterday’s post. I can look pretty sad if I want to, and I am not above using it on John at times 😈
I am done with the feeling bad, though. I now declare my attitude to be:
Whining is not radiant, and that’s what I want to be. It’s just going to take as long as it takes. I should see about some PT. My doctor basically said to work on regular activities and my injury would let me know how far to take it. I have ordered a foam roller today.
You know what Wednesdays are! We went to Panera today. Doesn’t this case look good?
I had myself a blueberry bagel. Yum, yum.
Nice relaxing breakfast. Then it was time for work. My work partner today:
She slept next to me for 7 straight hours while I worked. Lazy, lazy cat.
Lunch time and I felt like a smoothie. So I made a protein shake with banana flavored protein powder, some pumpkin, and some Kellogg’s Bran Buds (which I got as part of Food Buzz Tastemaker program), with ice and water and a pinch of glucomannan.
Pretty good. Not totally sold on the banana flavor protein powder; it was pretty strong. I also had a side of steamed broccoli with nutritional yeast, aka nooch.
Tastes just like parmesan cheese my a**!! I did not care for the taste of it, although I like the nutritional stats. Smells funktacular, too. I have a big bag to use up. Eeep!
After work, I did a strength workout with the gym in a bag with biceps, triceps, chest and back exercises. My back actually feels pretty much normal now, it’s just my leg. I tried doing some pushups, but my leg couldn’t support me, so those are out for a bit still. I also did a longer walk today, but I took the crutches so I could rest on them (which was a good idea). Getting there!
Dinner time involved lots of color!
Yum. These strawberries are so darn good. Almost gone, too.
Last night I practiced my guitar for the first time in months. My fingertips hurt LOL! I am going to try to go 5 days a week of practice. Part of an effort to be a little more unplugged. I am working on the classical style of guitar – why I try learning the hardest style is beyond me. Guess it is because I like it 😀 I would love to be like Sharon Isbin, whom we saw in concert.
Evening snacktations for movie time!
Granny Smith that I cut the middle out of and microwaved for a couple minutes. Then I mixed some ricotta cheese with bran buds, cinnamon and agave and stuffed in the middle. This is pretty good!
Ever tried nutritional yeast? I need help with ideas!
