I have been absolutely horrible about updating my blog daily. . .so here's a quick post with my meals Days 7 - 12.
Quick Summary - I finally "turned the corner" on Day 9, and my energy levels started to pick back up. I'm not quite feeling the magic yet, but I do feel a million times better than I did Days 1 - 5!
I'm really struggling with snacking . . . I'm snacking on healthy stuff - mainly spinach muffins, pickled okra, and a few raw almonds, but it is still snacking and I need to get a handle on it. One thing that I've found is that having bite-sized fruit (like cherries) in the house is a BAD idea. . . I usually won't break down and eat an entire apple or orange in between meals, but somehow grabbing a handful of cherries is much more tempting.
Still no news yet on the MRI - I've started PT though, and am sticking to my Foam Rolling / Icing / Liniment routine.
I did get back on my bike today for the first time in 2.5 weeks, and it was AMAZING!!! I missed it so much. I can't even put into words how great it felt to get back out on it :)
