Such a gorgeous day outside! Last nice day for a while, too. I hobbled on down to make some breakfast.
Protein waffles! Looks like a bow tie, doesn’t it?
After breakfast and checking in at work (there was none), I went out for a short walk. It’s much easier to use the crutches still. John came with and I went further than yesterday, which is good. Also took the plastic off the garden plants. They seemed to have survived the freezing okay. It’s getting greener all the time!
Look – I have my own fiddleheads!
Lunch time was an egg white puff with a ladle of hot sauce on it 😀 I could drink hot sauce.
I spoke with my doctor again today, and it is likely that what I have is not just the muscle pull, but because I still have numbness in my knee and referred pain down the leg – I have a herniated disk in my back, which is what is still causing the sciatica. Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done for this other than time. This means probably about 6 weeks. I can still progress activities as tolerated, but any thoughts of running are going to be at least many days out from now. 😐 Biking may happen sooner, but I still have to walk first (baby steps and all that). I’m not going to let it get me down. I won’t talk about it too much anymore unless something changes.
Latte time included one of my favorites!
I bought a whole box of these Attunes (with coupon LOL).
I still was hungry, so I nibbled on some Bran Buds. Fiber rules!
We tried out our new Coleman portable grill for dinner tonight. Love it! John grilled some sirloin while I cooked a sweet potato. Topped with sweet potato with some of the pecan/maple syrup combo that we had on the parsnips the other day.
This steak was amazing. Local meat just tastes to much better! We don’t have steak too often, and I just love it.
Going out for snack time! Today is free coffee day at Starbucks if you bring in a mug, so we are on our way out the door for that tonight! One thing I like about this Starbucks is that they have ceramic cups so you can get ‘for here’ drinks in them and not waste a paper cup. Of course, I will bring my own if it means anything free! Yay! Will be meeting my mother there and chatting away to start off my weekend.
Have a great night!
