Day three

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

This morning, I repeated my mantra. I can do anything for 10 minutes. I proceeded to do my morning physical therapy stretches, with weights for 12 minutes. And yes, Peaches cat was back trying to climb on my chest when I was doing them.

I slept pretty well. In fact, I have been, thankfully.

Work went fine, but I came home really tired. It was a potluck lunch, but part of it was cancelled. There was still food. I brought low fat cheese, and other cheese slices. I had corn salad (never had it before - onions, peppers, corn, black beans and I don't know what else.) I put the meatballs and sauce on top of that, as I am still staying away from wheat bread. Then I put a slice of provelone on that, and had a small package of almonds. I already drank 7 cups of water today.

Day three of my 10 minute morning physical therapy routine. I will keep telling myself this every day.

My back has had less pain since cutting out the wheat. In fact, I have been able to cut back on my pain medications quite a bit.

Tomorrow I have the day off.

    I agree that we need to say whatever we need to ourselves so we can get thru things.
    My favorite is nothing is forever so I can get thru this now.

    That mantra has gotten me through everything from work to dentistry ("I can do anything for X short amount of time.")

    Glad to hear you've been sleeping well. I'm still working on that one.
