First the miles. I was doing great, had six miles by Wednesday night. THEN on Thursday at work, I was in the basement, lifting a box with some patient charts, and all the sudden I was on my knees. I have NO idea what I did, but my back HURT!!! I couldnt breathe, felt like the air was knocked out of me. I knelt there for what seemed like hours, but Im sure was only a few minutes, and slowly stood up. My back hurt worse when I was standing straight than when I was at a 90 degree angle. I took some slow breaths and straightened up and step by painful step made it back upstairs. I popped some ibuprofen and had the Nurse Practitioner examine me. (Workers Comp mandates this).
Thankfully some strong Ibuprofen and some muscle relaxers and Im feeling better today. Still some twinges depending how I move, or when my linebacker of a son jumps on me. SO, no running, no exercises, no yoga, no nothing but sitting and standing, and of course, eating since Wednesday.
For the Make a change Challenge, I decided to eat some brussels sprouts. I used this recipe. I also sprinkled some with Garlic Salt.
My oven must be way off temp wise, cause after only 15 minutes they were burned! I still tryed them, and well, they were, icky!! To mushy in the middle. I could handle the ones that I cut in half to start with, but those whole ones, IICCKKK. BUT I will try them again, Id like to try them on the grill.
Any other recipe ideas?
