Another Day Down...

Not much new going on here.

I went to physical therapy yesterday and all they could really do was have me move in various positions to see where the pain was and how far I could go and then gave me a sheet of exercises to do in the pool. The first one if to hang on one of those pool noodles and let the water take some pressure off of my hip. Oh and lay on my stomach for as long as I can and stretch a little.

My MRI is scheduled for Tuesday morning. I'm also supposed to have a cardiology appointment on Tuesday afternoon but there's no way I can drive to DHMC in this condition. It hurts horribly to drive for even five minutes much less 45.

I have noticed that the pain improves when I'm in my recliner and it's worse at my work desk and in the car so I guess it all depends on how I sit and position my body.  It's still spreading down my leg; it's past the knee now and heading into the calf and ankle. Really not fun!

On a positive note though I've been doing great with my calories and well within limits of my lowish-carb goals! I do still need to add in more protein and I'm working on a grocery list for tomorrow's shopping that will be really high in protein but at the rate I'm going I should have a decent weight loss this week!

I also bought a spiral vegetable slicer (spiralizer?) and can't wait for it to come so I can try it out. I've heard some great things about zucchini and spaghetti squash "spaghetti" and I am SO making some this week and then I'll review the spiral thingie because it's almost time for another review anyway!

I think that's all I have for today but I'll leave you guys with a pretty cool collage I made on the phone of signs of Autumn from our yard! Enjoy!
