The Salad Case: Spineless

Workout: 45 min yoga

My lower back felt like mush, thus – today’s blog post.

The lower back pain started in my 30s, a product of old age and genetics. It usually comes and goes, but this weekend it was here to stay.

I’ve been nursing it with my heat pack, a pair of birkenstocks (I suffer from really flat feet) and no high-impact exercises and I feel better. I also modified my workout plan this week by adding 3 longer yoga sessions and no running.

Sidenote: I got the results for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and I ran a 9.17/mi pace. Woo-hoo!!! Slow for most, fast for me. It was a great race!

Back to my back, I spoke to a friend who’s had back surgery before and she recommended I go to a chiropractor and get adjusted. Imma scared! Have you ever been to one?

On a good note, Monday was really nice in EP.

Nice enough to eat my lunch outside.

In the case today: a rice bowl!

  • Spinach
  • Roasted broccoli, brussel sprouts, carrots, cashes
  • Basmatti rice – in luv with it right now!
  • Goat cheese + honey

I’ve been a busy-bee - that's me! Work is kickin my bootay! For reals, yo! It was nice to take a couple of minutes outside and soak up that vitamin D :)
