Hi Michelle! Nice to see you
Still crazy busy at work! I'm embarrassed to say just how bad I fell off my eating plan.
It was really catching up with me--I have been sooooo exhausted and fatigued from eating all that crap
And I started drinking coffee again, why I don't know! It makes me so tense. I used the last of the bag yesterday and didn't buy more when I did my shopping yesterday. About an hour after I got to work this morning I was thinking how much better I feel--then realized it's due to getting back on the program...a green smoothie this morning instead of coffee!
Anyway, I'm back on. Got my meals lined up for the next week. I'm excited to have discovered frozen rice! Of course the frozen brown rice is great but I'm loving the frozen white rice that has corn and poblano mixed in YUM. I eat mostly brown but for beans and rice I prefer white. Picked up a few cans of beans. I rarely eat anything frozen or canned but I had to figure something out that is easy til summer is over...I'm just too busy to cook and hate heating up the house in the summer cooking a pot of beans.
So with turning over a new leaf this morning I got up early and did some yoga on my patio before work and dammit strained my lower back in a bad way doing like I haven't in many months.
Doctor wouldn't refill my pain meds (the ones that actually work) when I turned down the expensive procedure they wanted to do on my back a couple months back, so I'm trying to get by here at my desk with some Rx strength Naproxen and an ice pack. Not having much luck and I'm wondering if I'm going to make it til 5pm
Anyway, that's what's going on. Things have slowed a bit this week at work but I have several big projects looming so things will get nuts again next week. It feels like I have been on my feet since mid March so I'm trying to enjoy these few hours sitting down at my desk even if my back is killing me!
Hopefully I'll be around more soon and hopefully I will stick with my diet. I'm tired of being tired. Diet is the sure way of giving myself some much needed energy!
