Back at school today. Looks like I will be wearing shorts or skirts for the next 6-7 weeks as this bugger of a brace does NOT flippin' stay up with pants or jeans- dang it!! The knee is a bit sore but I do not need to be up a whole lot which is good. I got the sad puppy eyes from the dogs this morning when I was up getting my shower this morning. They KNEW I was not going to be home today.
well, yesterday I was sore and tired when I got home. I am hobbling around but keeping at it. Its good to be back at work. Although tomorrow I am headed to KU for a science meeting/conference. I am looking forward to it. We are staying in a hotel with a pool so Lily should be thrilled as well.
I am not back to "program" yet but it will come very soon.
Fun weekend up at KU. Lily enjoyed the whole thing. We first listened to a lecture about subterranean beavers that were 6 cm long. We then got to visit the paleontology lab at KU that is not open to visitors. We then went to some other KU lab sites where Lily found MANY rocks and fossils and even panned for Gold. My mobility was limited and what little I did has made me so stinking sore today. I am mostly icing my knee today.
Ok.. I know that grains are bad for me. I KNOW they cause aches in my joints. I usually expect it in my ankles etc. I have had too much and now I have pain in my right hand (the first 2 joints). It feels arthritic and I really suspect grains. So, so far today I am doing well. I have had pork rinds, blue cheese dressing and ham today. I also had some ice cream but my focus now is getting rid of the grains..again.
I think it best to focus on one thing at a time as well. I have noticed over the course of the past few years that things I thought I would never be able to do have been slowly added to my food repertoire. Fasting for example. I don't think I have a problem with one particular food or another in as far as my joints are concerned, but grains just have too many calories for the level of enjoyment I get out of them. (p.s. funny you had ice cream early in the day? I always think of it as something I do at the end of the day, when my will power is at its lowest)
Today is my fast day, so just my iced coffee this morning and 4oz of Kombucha at lunch (store bought). Dinner tonight will be spaghetti squash, with Kerrygold, baked fish, and cucumbers soaked in ACV. This should leave me enough to finish the night with another iced coffee (decaf) for "dessert".
