One of those days where I should have stayed in bed
Ever have one of those days?
Today was my day.
It started just as I was eating breakfast. I had my legs up on the recliner and I stretched, because why wouldn't you stretch to get comfy, and all of a sudden I feel this pop in my back. Right under my shoulder muscle in the back. It was so painful I wiggled my toes, legs, arms and fingers just to make sure I wasn't paralyzed. I somehow managed to get off the chair, but it still hurt. I was unsure if I'd be able to last the day but the Icy/Hot cream helped. In the afternoon I had to take some Advil just to be able to round out the last couple hours of the day.
At work, all sorts of things went wrong. Theories I had, didn't pan out and it was just a crummy work day.
This evening making dinner, it took much longer than usual. I made ground turkey and pasta, a dish I can make from memory and have made countless times. The meat didn't behave like it should, the sauce ended up runny and I ran out of spices.
I couldn't work out as much as I wanted on account of my back. It's hard to come up from up from the floor with this knot in my back. I could only do the machine portion.
Here's hoping tomorrow goes a bit better.
