I don’t know if it’s the painkillers or the fact that I slept for 11 hours last night (because of the painkillers) but I feel much better today. I’d say I’m at about 70% whereas I was at maybe 20% yesterday and Sunday, whatever that means. However, I’m curious to see how I’ll feel if I don’t take a painkiller. I took 800mg of ibuprofin and a muscle relaxer today twice. They also gave me a Lortab prescription but it said not to take while working in big capital letters so I didn’t take it today. I did, however, take the muscle relaxer at work and that was not the best idea. I just felt sort of out of it for the entire afternoon and couldn’t focus at all. Maybe tomorrow I’ll just take the iburprofin and hope that I’m getting better.
Needless to say, I skipped the gym today. It’s been one whole week since I’ve gone and I’d be lying if that didn’t freak me out a little bit. I’m signed up for a 5K on Saturday and I guess I’ll play it by ear as far as what I’ll do about it. I can walk 3.1 miles fine, but I’m hoping I’ll be able to run by then.
Since I didn’t go to the gym, I got home early enough to make dinner. Sometimes when I work out at night, I don’t get home until almost 8 and by then I’m too lazy/tired to cook. I took advantage of being home earlier tonight and made Green Bean Fries with Tofu Edamame Nuggets. I’m kind of exaggerating when I say make dinner because the Tofu Edamame Nuggets were from Trader Joe’s and in my freezer. I really wanted to make the green beans though and they seemed to go along well. Nothing wrong with some frozen food sometimes, right?
Hopefully, I’ll be all better tomorrow and can make my triumphant gym return. But maybe not. We’ll see.
