So my back started acting up yesterday, and I ended up having to take a muscle relaxant for spasms. I only took part of one because they hit me hard, but I'm still in zombie mode today. Good thing is that zombies can still walk, or shuffle.
Tonight is my night to do the exercise bike again. We have a recumbent bike in hopes that it will give me more support for my back. But honestly, with the way I feel, I don't know if I'll get on it. I'll make sure I do my walking so I get my exercise, but I'm trying to add in the bike a few times a week to add more intensity to my exercise.
Tonight is also my cooking night. I have a baked chicken recipe from Jamie Oliver that I'm going to try. But wow, looking through his cookbook, he is not concerned about calories in this one. Granted, this recipe is chicken and potatoes, but still I'm cutting down the serving size and increasing the green veggies to balance it.
I'm also going to try to add one crockpot meal per week. I was doing it for a bit, but so many of the recipes I found included cream of mushroom soup. I know some people like it but my mom cooked with it too much growing up and I can eat it. I need to research some recipes with more fresh items. If anyone has a good site or book, please share.
