Friday night we went out for Cuban food. I got lechon a la cubana (roast pork). It comes with rice, fried plantains and black beans (yes, they have lots of liquid). All very, very tasty.
After dinner, my husband helped me mix up some gluten free brownies with flax, walnuts and raisins. The big glass mixing bowl was just too heavy for my back.
Saturday we went with my BFF and my brother to my aunt and uncles house. We had a great afternoon and evening. Lots of talk and lots of good food. I forgot to get a picture of the fabulous chicken stew my aunt made for dinner but you see the brownies we had for dessert.
Today was a laundry and grocery shopping day. My husband and I walked over to a nearby taqueria for lunch and I got a couple of carne asada tacos...tasty.
My foot is feeling awesome!! My back is doing better. It's still a little stiff/sore after sitting for a while and when I get up, I'm tilted to the left for a while until the muscles loosen up. I'm going to see if I can get in to the chiropractor tomorrow instead of Wednesday (or maybe do both days). Hopefully I'll be upright soon so I can get back to some running.
I will take the week off of strength training just to be safe. I'm really trying to decide if I will go back to CLX. It seems to not be working out too well for me, back-wise. I may do more low weights/high reps for a while....Jillian, Bob, Jari, Butt Bible.
