WARNING: This post is negative because I’m feeling negative.
It makes me want to cry. My back is out. Gone. Pain no matter what I do. I need help to stand and have to crawl into and out of bed or I won’t make it otherwise.
I feel kind of stupid because of how it happened. I was bending at the waist, splashing my face with cool water. That’s it. No jumping, running, etc. Just fracking bending at not quite a 45 degree angle. I’m a mess. I can’t even splash my face without hurting myself!
I want to eat until I feel better, but nothing tastes good or comforting. Depressing, eh? Not as depressing as the deadline that looms. 2 papers due (on Monday and Tuesday) and a girl’s gotta work.
Deep, cleansing breaths and peaceful vibes help somewhat, but not as much as hard core narcotics do.
Tuesday started really well, although it was hot again! I got in a lot of walking and some yoga, lots of water, only 2 cups of coffee, and ate really well until dinner time rolled around. I got in plenty of fruit and veggies (more than 6 servings today) and thought a little splurge wouldn’t hurt. Oh man. I had root beer (not diet, full sugar) for the first time in ages, and lots of fried and fatty stuff. I won’t lie, it was fabulous all around, but more fat and sugar than I’ve had in months.
B: 2 cups strawberries, kiwi, 1/2 c Silk vanilla yogurt, tsp ground flax; water; supplements
L: chickpea ‘tuna’ salad (mashesd chckpeas, Nasoya mayo, celery, kelp, & Crazy Mixed-Up salt), crakers, cukes & carrots; coffee & water
D: egg salad on rye with lettuce and locally grown tomatoes; 1/3 basket onion rings + sauce (a spicy, mayo based concoction), 1/4 basket fries; root beer; scoop mocha ice cream with hot fudge sauce & dollop whipped cream
Lots of water today
Ex: 20 minute walk (x 2), 10 minutes strength training; 15 mins. yoga
I’m not sure how much exercise I’ll get tomorrow since my back and hip are going haywire. In a big way. Yoga will be a big part of it regardless. And I think I’ll pull out the physical therapy routine. Along with the joint and muscle cream, ginger tea, pineapple juice as a smoothie base, and ice pack. Ouch.
