Saturday is Chore Day

Saturday, March 26, 2011

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!! emoticon
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!

It's Friday....YAY!!!

Friday, March 25, 2011

It seems like it's been a very long week. Maybe because I haven't been able to get in the kind of exercise I'd like to. It has ended on a happy note. My back is doing a whole lot better today. Just a few twinges when I get up from sitting for too long.
I went to Stanford and got a little hands on experience on the mass spec. It was very helpful. I do need to order some more supplies before I can get over there again.
I managed to get in 2 hours of dancing around today. That could be the reason my back is a little sore now. Maybe it was a little too much. The knees are achy today, too. It's been cold and rainy so I suspect it's the arthritis. I took an ibuprofen so that should take care of the minor aches. I can't complain. It's all much better than before.
I did have a little too much chocolate today. TOM is due over the weekend. There is definitely a correlation.
We ended up having L&L Hawaiian for dinner. I got my favorite, kalua pork and cabbage. It's actually one of the healthier dishes except for the salt. I got broccoli and brown rice as my sides rather than white rice and macaroni salad.
There is still plenty of pork and rice left over. I ate all my broccoli. I should start pounding the water, though. The sodium plus TOM is going to show up if I weigh in tomorrow. emoticon
Happy Friday!! Have a fabulous weekend!

Not Really a Day Off

Thursday, March 24, 2011

I decided I'd stay home and read for work today. I didn't actually do any reading but I watched some videos on Youtube about the Mass Spec. They were very informative and not boring like the book, so I think I accomplished my goal.
I also got in some walking on the treadmill. I started out at 3mph but that was too fast for my back so I kept decreasing the speed until it felt good which ended up being 2mph. I was able to up the incline to 4% without and noticeable pain in my back. I got in 1.75 miles which is pretty good. My heart rate monitor went all wonky and sometimes told me my heart rate was 180 and sometimes nothing, so I don't know how many calories I actually burned. It felt good to do something, though. I also did a little dancing.
Tomorrow I will be going into work. From there over to Stanford to learn more about the Mass Spec.
I'm glad I didn't have to go out today. It was really windy and rainy.
My back is doing better. Still sore but not very much. I am deciding if I should take an ibuprofen or not. More for if there was any inflammation from my walk on the treadmill than actual soreness.
That's enough rambling for one day.
Have a great Thursday night!!!
Only one more day of work this week...at least for most people.

    I'm not big on taking pills, but when it comes to backpain, better to take that extra ibu than accidentally contort yourself while you're trying to prevent hurting yourself... You know, the other day I read that on a regular treadmill, a 0% incline is actually a slight DEcline which is why it's better to slightly up the incline when you use one. Isn't that interesting! Well, I'm glad you were able to work out AND get some rest, and that your back is starting to feel better. emoticon

    Hiya Nat, I definitely think you should take an ibuprofen- you'll notice by morning how much it helps. It was cold, snowy and windy here today but I managed to get out and run 3.1 miles. I've switched from music to listening to my audio books (I go slower but it makes the time pass much faster :)) Because of the snow I missed both Wed and Thur going back to other job, so I'm going in tomorrow for a 15 hour day! Yikes! Hope your back gets better soon!

A Bath Pillow is a Very Nice Thing

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

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!

Back to Work

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

Yesterday we went to San Francisco. I was dressed for the rain because it was raining in San Jose and figured for sure it would be raining in San Francisco. As we got closer, the rain and clouds just dissipated. It was beautiful and sunny but a little cold (which is to be expected). We had lunch at an Indian Buffet and then decided we needed to walk around to work some of it off. It was a much slower walk than I'd normally take and I was kind of hunched to the left because I can't seem to stand up straight but it was nice.
Today I had to go back to work having finished my short vacation. I actually ended up calling it sick time because it didn't seem like much of a vacation with my back being injured and my boss said it was okay. He actually told me I should have stayed home today but there were some things I needed to get done, so I stayed until about 12:30 and then left for the day.
I had planned on picking up some Epsom salts on the way home at Target because they were out of them at the VA store. Target didn't have any either. Must be lots of people who need muscle relief.
I made some lunch when I got home and then decided I needed to move around a little and did some dancing in the living room while watching some Biggest Loser On Demand. I think I hate that the show is a game.
My husband bought some Epsom salts at the grocery store on his way home, so I soaked for a while in the tub.
For some reason, I can never get comfortable in the tub. I don't know if it's because I'm short and I can't prop myself up very well or what. Maybe I need a bath pillow? My hair always ends up getting stuck in the seam between the tub and the wall. I don't know if it helped or not. My back is a little sore. I'm hoping that maybe tomorrow I'll be walking more upright.
Okay, not a very eventful day and it's kind of a rambling blog.
Have a great night.

I hear ya about Biggest Loser I tell hubby I watch it for transformations but I don't like all the drama, game playing, voting off. I think whomever doesn't lose the most weight goes home period, but then again this is TV and nobody would watch since ppl are all into reality shows these days.

the pillows and pads are hard to find. i ended up at bed bath and beyond. the only others i could find were online and who wants to buy a pillow online. some things MUST be squeezed before you can buy them!

Get well SOON! emoticon

    Oh man, i'm glad you were able to use sick time! I really hope your back gets better soon :(

I never got into the Biggest Loser, i wished they could let the contestants just stick to the program and whoever lost the most wins. Something like this can really benefit the contestants' lives and yet they need to be all evil and strategic. I've only watched it once though.

    Funny, my hubby needed Epson salt and they were out at Target too! Maybe there is a shortage? LOL!
Gosh, how tall/short are you? Poor thing! You can't get comfortable in the bath? I haven't had a bath in years...I remember how good they feel! I hope the warm water helped a little bit and I hope you get better soon! Take care!
