Today when I got up my back felt pretty darn good. So good, that I decided I'd try the elliptical. 4 miles later, it still felt good. Still a little bit sore when standing after sitting for most of the day, but now it's hardly even sore when I stood up after sitting for about an hour. I think I'm nearly over this!!
There were errands to run today. We went to Hallmark to pick up a Bar Mitzvah card for one of my nephews. We actually had to ask where they were. The lady had to open up the understock and pull out a box that had the "jewish cards" in them. We found a suitable one. I'll figure out what multiple of 18 I will write the check for and mail it on Monday. We're not planning on attending the dinner party in Chicago next Sunday. We wouldn't even be allowed in to the Lubavitch World Headquarters in New York on Saturday for the actual reading of the Torah.
We had planned to go to the sushi buffet at the mall for lunch but it was really crowded. There were a whole lot of people lined up to get in. They must have all brought their 50% off coupons. We ended up going to our standby, Rejoice Buffet. Also an Asian buffet. Lots of broccoli, bok choy, string beans and a little bbq pork. A fine lunch. Since it's near Whole Foods, that's where we did the grocery shopping. I picked up some salmon and avocado rolls for DH because he missed out on his sushi at lunch. He will have those for dinner and I got some vegetarian summer rolls (with tofu) for my dinner. Nice and light.
I've got laundry going now. DH brought the basket down :-) He also did the vacuuming. Yes, I did get very lucky. Now I'm going to see if I can get the dust bunnies under the bed with the swiffer. It's pretty bad.
Maybe I'll watch some House tonight. I'm still watching last season on Blu-ray.
A nice day. Still rainy, windy and chilly. But that's okay by me.
Have a great night!

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!
