    We have a bunch of early birds this morning. I had a repairman come at 7:45am so I was reading the posts earlier than usual. My breakfast is usually the healthiest meal of the day but maybe not today

    Breakfast - raisin bran, skim milk, hot cocoa (couldn't resist, not sorry)

    Sorry to hear that you stood too long , Sharon. I put in on Fridays post after reading how well you thought you did, that I hoped there werent any painful repercussions for the overexertion on your back. It's inflammation. Take some time today to soak and get in some Ibuporfen to reduce the swelliing around the muscles on your lower back.
    Later today, I suggest doing the 12 min Seated core exercise vid on our resources link under exercises. That will help slowly stretch out those sore muscles.

    Kim, AM weight up a tiny bit, 178.0. A bit upset about it, because I was hungry last night and reached for and almost opened a protein bar.... but decided against the 270 calories... went for a banana instead.
    But even with that I was up .. probably because of the sodium in the Fajitas at lunch... sigh.

    Breakfast: 1/4 c(dry) old fashioned oatmeal and 2 Tblsp Chia Seeds made with vanilla chai tea, with 1 Tblsp coconut oil and 1 pkt stevia ---- from here on I'll call this "Chai Chia Oatmeal", cause it Looks cool
    and
    Monkey Salad
    dutch cocoa coffee and 32 oz water.

    Good job Kim having a healthy one ingredient banana over the calorie laden protein bar for late evening eating. Bananas are one food that helps with sleep. Did you sleep well?
