My back is feeling better. But I don’t want to take any chances this time. We’ve got tickets to go the Kennedy Center for New Year’s Eve. I’m very excited about that. So, I’m not moving around much today and staying on the heating pad.

I took my vitamins and am drinking Carrot Juice already… I’m a bit hungry and grabbed a piece of Whole Wheat Bread to nibble on with some Hummus. In a while I’ll go back down stairs to fix lunch…

Last night, I was feeling better and Mike wanted to go do some running around, so I geared up and got in the car. But what he wanted to do is go to Costco and shop and walk around. Well, my back was throbbing and I kind of let him know it! So we ended up fast forwarding through the Costco Experience and went straight home. Too much…. too soon!!

For dinner, I was in the kitchen unloading dishes from the dishwasher (another bright idea!) And Mike’s son wanted to make his own dinner… Pasta Alfredo! We bought some white sauce previously from Costco and already had the red sauce, so he mixed the two together to make a Tequila Sauce. I suggested he cut up some mushrooms and blanche them in the Pasta water… and there was his meal.

I made a bowl of the Green Salad and I wanted to bake a Sweet Potato but Mike wanted to grill the Potatoes with Onions. So I chopped up the Sweet Potatoes and Onions. Added Paprika, Garlic Powder and some Olive Oil and Mike took it to grill.

After I finished my salad, Mike wanted some and I asked him to serve himself. And after he ate his salad… he checked on the Potatoes and I made myself a bowl of them to eat. And straight up to the heating pad I went…. amazingly enough today my back doesn’t hurt as bad. Yeah!!!

I’ve been feeling so much better these last couple of days… I must have over done it with the day at the Space Museum Saturday… and the stretching and weights these last couple of nights. My back is killing me again.!!!!

While we were at the Space Museum Saturday, we stopped for lunch at the indoor McDonald’s and I had a Southwestern Salad w/out the Chicken. Then we went to see the IMAX Theatre presentation of Space Exploration, which was great. Afterwards, we went home and hung out.

Mike made a Persian meal with Plums and Turkey Meat. It’s more of a stew and I ate that with some White Rice. For desert… I ate some Raspberries, Blackberries, Flaxseed, Whipped Topping and Leftover Ice-Cream.

I’ve been keeping up on my Carrot Juice and found a new drink Smoothie from Bolt house Farms Strawberries and Bananas. Tried some last night!

This morning… Sunday I woke up with throbbing back pain. After I took my morning vitamins and drank the Barley Juice. Mike made me another Veggie Soup: so I had some with Whole Wheat Bread crumbs.
Carrots
Celery
Cream Corn
White Beans
Barley

This soup stock however, was made with left over Turkey from last night’s meal.

As the day progresses, with me on the bed sitting on the heating pad, I’ve got my Carrot Juice, Almonds, Apple and Banana to munch on.:)
