Back to Work
Saturday, June 16, 2012
Well, I got back to work today. It was a physically and mentally tough day. I never thought sitting in a chair could cause pain. I didn't walk at lunch today because my back and leg were hurting. I tried to move around as much as possible at work but I really believe the chair was the problem.
I told my boss I was bringing a ball to sit on for Monday. That seams to help here at home so fingers crossed. I don't think my 55" ball is big enough to work at my desk. I'm hoping I can use/find a 65" over the weekend to use.
I'm still avoiding any strength training. I don't want to pull anything and make it worse. I did get a nice walk in tonight with Evil Cherub (EC). I'm going slower than normal, but I'm hoping it will help me maintain.
Poor Tazzy is losing her mind. She doesn't understand why I'm not taking her on my walks. I just can't handle any pulling and she has a bike issue. Also, I know I will try to go at our "normal" speed. My body just isn't ready for that. EC is just starting back to exercise after surgery, so she's more my speed right now.
I've also found I'm just not hungry. I think I'm not burning enough right now. I was under yesterday and I'm under my minimum today. But I just don't want anything. I did, however, buy a ton of fruit at the store. I have pluot's (what ever those are - look cute), plums, nectarines, pears, bananas, and "cuties". So I've got plenty of fruit for the weekend. I've also go mixed greens so life should be good.
Well, it's way past my bed time but I do have something funny to share. A little advice, after having an air bag blow up in your face, DO NOT fall asleep on pain killers watching John Carpenter's Thing. I dreamed of exploding huskies! Yes, I'm disturbed!
