Wow it's been awhile since I last posted....
Last Saturday my boyfriend and I went to see two movies which turned out great! We saw Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters and Identity Thief. Both movies were pretty good! Between movies we went to a restaurant close by called The Elephant Bar where I had my very first garden burger! It was on a whole wheat bun with lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, pickles, and mozzarella cheese and had a side salad with low-fat lemon herb dressing. After the movies we went to the Marina and took some photos.
Last Sunday we went back to the marina but brought a healthy lunch of a 6" Subway turkey breast sandwich, special k sea salt cracker chips, water, and an apple. After we ate we took more photos and walked the pier. We got some really decent photos with out cell phones and it was so nice out!
On Monday I woke up with severe back pain again and could barely move. After walking around the house for awhile it got slightly better but not much. I got a text from a friend of mine who happened to be in the area for the night so we made plans to have dinner. My boyfriend and I met her at BART and we walked half a mile to an all vegan restaurant. I had a veggie burger on foccacia bread. It wasn't very good and wasn't what I was expecting. It was more of a mushy patty of what tasted like beans and it tasted horrible. I ended up taking it off and eating the veggies and bread instead. After we ate we walked the half mile back to BART and went home.
On Thursday I had to work but only had to watch my boss' kids for three hours and she paid me in advance before she had to leave for work in the field. It was really easy and I had a good time talking to her teenage daughter. Afterwards I was able to make the 15 minute walk back home.
Today I have a appointment with a different doctor to look at my back. I called on Wednesday and was told I would have to wait until March 25th to be seen but they would give my information to the advice nurse to look over and call me back. The advice nurse called on Thursday and asked a bunch of questions about my back and told me he could get me in today at 2:15 so I'm having my uncle drop me off and my boyfriend will meet me there since he woks a few blocks away and gets off at 2:30 today so it works out perfectly. After the appointment we are going grocery shopping to pick up some veggies and meat.
This has been a long week... lots of pain and lots going on. I sure hope the doctor can figure out what is wrong with my back.
