I think the soak in the tub yesterday did help (or maybe it was the hot water bottle) because I was standing much straighter today and I could walk at a normal speed. Still a little sore when getting up from a sitting position, but I think it's improving. :-)
It was a busy day at work getting the chemical waste ready, looking at data, ordering supplies. I was supposed to go to Stanford tomorrow to learn about how to run the mass spec but it turns out the person who was supposed to be helping me wasn't able to do it tomorrow so it has been postponed until Friday. Originally I was going to go at 1pm and my boss told me to just stay home and read and then go directly to Stanford. When I told him it got postponed, I wanted to know if he wanted me to still stay at home and read or come in. He said to do whatever would make my back feel better. I don't know what will make my back feel better, but I may stay home and read.
On my way home from work today, I stopped at Bed, Bath and Beyond and picked up a bath pillow and a bath mat. They make a huge difference in the comfort of soaking in the bathtub. Very, very nice.
We had Trader Joe's Jalapeno Chicken Sausages and Alexia Yukon Gold Fries for dinner tonight. The fries are baked and only have 3.5g fat for a generous 24 fries. Very tasty, too.
I'm baking some low carb coconut muffins for my husband to take for breakfast. The recipe is from the same cookbook that I made the coconut cookies from. They should be out of the oven in about 4 minutes. Then I can get a picture to post here:
Have a great night. We made it through Wednesday. It's all downhill from here!
