I went to my ortho for a follow-up on the herniated discs in my neck. They are still causing me pain and I had to do something else about it. I had avoided steroid injections for 16+ months, but I can't see being in pain all the time. Something had to give. I was afraid I was going to have to get 3 injections into my neck via X-ray machine. Luckily, my Doc recommended an injection into a "trigger point" in my trap where a lot of the pain was originating from. After the shot I'll try several weeks of physical therapy and re-evaluate from there. Aren't auto accident injuries fun????
Wow, that was a mouthful.
The moral of that story was: 1. I couldn't use my arms in today's workout (which dr. said was okay to do) and 2: I needed to burn a lot of calories in just a few movements. Enter 275 pound squats. Holy moly kids!
After the world stopped spinning, I refueled with a Green Goodness shake!
- Calcium enriched OJ
- Organic spinach
- Frozen peaches
- GAT vanilla Prolein protein powder
- 1T organic coconut oil
I added to coconut oil to see if it would help keep me fuller. After that workout and a shot of steroids, however will anything keep me full?
I also want to give a shout out to Brian of the Central Florida Top 5 who said hello to me at last night's IOA Corporate 5k in Downtown Orlando.
And thanks for the pic! :) This face is me going, "I'm trying to announce these runners...but I know you from somewhere....but where...."
Except I kinda look like I'm singing??? la la llaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Do eat or cook with coconut oil? Why or why not?
