Obviously I don't have answers just yet about what is happening with my shoulder, back and neck but it seems like this Dr. is actually interested in trying to figure it out, which is incredibly refreshing. A snippet of what he told me: "Whatever it is, it's strange. It was strange in the beginning and it is still strange. But we will figure out what it is (I had actually seen him once two years ago for the same problem but went to a neurologist after...who did nothing)." This was so refreshing to hear since I've been trying to get answers for three years and it seems like I finally have someone on board with me. Oh and the icing on the vegan cake was that they took me in to the room 5 minutes early and the appointment started exactly on time. I don't know about you but I'm usually waiting at least a half hour past my appointment time at a Dr's office. So that was awesome. I felt really good when I walked out of there. I am going to have an MRI done on my neck and we'll take it from there. Just waiting for authorization :)
So today was business as usual. Started off at work then I ran some errands then I went to the gym and did 45 minutes of cardio. I also ate some pretty awesome food. Check it out!
Breakfast was a "green" smoothie. Not green but had lots of greens. It had frozen banana, frozen blueberries, almond milk, Vegan Shake & Go Vanilla Almondilla and lots of spinach. Very delicious.
Late morning snack was an AMAZING mango! I've never had fresh mango before (just frozen) and OMG it is so delicious. I'm glad I decided to pick one up to try.
I thought I would take a picture of the carnage because it looked hilarious. These were the results of the Friday Mango Massacre. I know there are more civilized ways to eat it but I don't care. It was fun being all messy :) Thank goodness no one was around!
For lunch I ate this amazing snacky plate. It had carrots, celery, tomato, home made gluten free tortilla chips and lots of hummus. Delicious!
Post workout I had a protein shake. Then after my shower I ate seaweed snacks to hold me over until dinner.
Dinner was a big, beautiful chopped salad. Yum!
Forgetting Sarah Marshall just came on FX and will lead right into The Ultimate Fighter Live which is pretty much my perfect night :) I'm cuddling up into bed and I see some air popped popcorn in my future.
Hope you all had a great day! Cheers to the weekend! Hope it's a great one for you :)
