Went to the chiropractor today and got some serious relief for my back. So nice! Then I went for a 2 mile walk. I really felt a lot of pressure from homeboy's head. So the walk was very slow, but good. I got a dose of endorphins the last half of the walk that was amazing. I was in a zone and felt really good. I imagined getting the same surge of endorphins in labor and just allowing myself to get in the labor zone. It was a good thing. Labor, for me, is a lot like running. It's a physical challenge that you can accomplish by believing you can do it and letting your body keep going. Mind over matter. Then just plain surrender.
Here's todays menu:
Ezekiel bread with Smart balance and jam
Mocha with a shot of protein
Exercise: walk 2 miles
Cat fish sandwich w/ some fries (promise I didn't eat all the fries!)
Verdict out. Probably Ed's leftover turkey sandwich from lunch. Or some TJ's vegetarian chili.
Bedtime early tonight!
I'm getting a hankering to make some soups. I'd love some homemade Tomato Basil! Anyone have a good recipe?
Also-some of you asked for the Raisin Walnut Bread recipe. I'll post that tomorrow! Sorry I'm a slacker. :)
