I woke up not feeling great. Or let me rephrase this, I woke up feeling super crappy. Pains and aches in muscles and joints, and slightly nauseated from taking Methotrexate. My herniated disc, which I miraculously managed to get under control earlier this year, is acting up again. Yes, not a great start to my day. The sciatic pain has shown its ugly head in the past few days. And if you are familiar with sciatic pain, I am sure you know, what I mean when I say; anything BUT sciatic pain. I have set reminders on my phone now to walk a mile in the neighborhood every 3 hours and to do my physical therapy exercises twice daily until my back is under control again. Let there be relief, I say.
My fabulous friend, Karen, asked me what perk the "Champagne, Pearls and CI" lifestyle could offer me today. And that lead me to treat myself to this energizing, luscious and glamorous looking protein shake (it is all about the presentation).
Yum, yum and yum. My day is feeling better by the minute!
