Honest lying

Quote du jour: Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.
- Lance Armstrong

Okay, change of plan. The back flared up into intense nastiness, so I spent the whole weekend lying on my back either in bed or in a hot bath. I can't sit in a chair, but I can walk and I can lie. Down, that is. So I'm thinking this is the body's way of slapping me upside the head to get my attention. I'm putting exercise on hold and switching my attention to Extreme Diet mode. Going to go Cold Carrot today. No food that has even the slightest inclination to aid the inflammatory response (e.g. anything with saturated fat) shall pass these lips.

I lost two pounds this weekend while lying around. There's something positive.

I don't want to have to throw my back out to achieve the same result. I'm just saying.

I was going to tell you what you should do but then I decided that you don't need my advice. Hope you recover soon my friend!

Agree, i hope you recover soon.

Your poor back! I admire you for going Cold Carrot (lol, very clever) during a physically painful time - that's usually when I go All In on the M&M's.

Why yes, two pounds down is positive. Back pain, not so much! Feel better.

Theresa said...

Hey, I recognize that castle!

Oh, and hope your back feels better. :)

The Merry said...

So tell, Dr. T! What castle is it?

Andrea, thanks. I will kick this soon. Hopefully.

Tricia, yepppppp :)

Shelley, I was tempted. But anything this painful is a wakeup call.

MessyM, thanks!

InkS, I appreciate your restraint ;)

Crikey, I like the sound of that, "The Lying Around Diet".

Market it, you could make a fortune,

It's Edinburgh castle, of course! With statues of William Wallace and Robert the Bruce to the left and right (or right and left) of the entrance!

Thanks, Theresa!
