How Time Flies

Monday, January 14, 2013

I can't believe it's almost two weeks since I made an entry here!! A lot has changed. My sciatic pain has stopped & I can walk normally again - well more or less. The muscles in my right leg are weak & I can't walk upstairs unless I can LEAN on something with my right side. I can bend over & put on my socks again!! And I can tie my shoes without problems. I can now twist to both sides & getting into & driving my car doesn't give me pain anymore!! Woo Hoo!! I can't believe how nice it is not to have constant pain. And now I have to strengthen my body to avoid that pain if I can in future.
I have tried my best to eliminate Take Out from my diet. Oh, I still eat the odd egg mcmuffin & coffee on my way to work but that's it. It isn't my daily diet & only used on mornings when I'm rushed or get called into work when I should be off. I eat a lot of Chinese style meals - but they're cooked at home with fresh vegetables. I don't eat much bread or pasta & have switched - grudgingly - to brown rice. Sigh. And Quinoa. And Spelt. Did you know you can cook Pot Barley like brown rice?? I like it better & it's a whole grain. Very nice under curried chicken & brussels sprouts!!!

    Barley, yummers!

Congratulations on the quick improvements! So glad you're not suffering with sciatica; I know how painful that can be!

    When traveling I'll stop off at a McDinald's for a double cheese burger & coffee. for lunch. At 449 calories it holds me until dinner, I also enjoy an egg McMuffin on occassions, Earl emoticon
