Had to take a few weeks off of BBC ’cause of that minor surgery. I know this is going to sound ridiculous and counterintuitive – but I got so stiff when I wasn’t lifting! My lower back was a slab… and then I went in on Monday and got to play, finishing out with carrying the 185lb yoke down the parking lot. And I got home and my lower back was happy again. (Other things were sore, but soreness from workouts passes quickly enough).
Played again last night, laughed, did banded benchpresses… it’s all good. 😀 (BBC is definitely a CLUB – we laugh a good bit).
Whole 30 update: Today is day 9. Last couple of days the sugar DTs have been irritating, but they seem to be fading out a bit. It’s definitely emotional irritation more than physical at this point. So, that’s good. 13yo is having an easyish time of it, which makes me happy.
We don’t seem to like coconut cream as a substitute for dairy. We like it IN things that want that coconut flavor, or subtle sweetness, but ranch dressing? Fail. I changed the ranch dressing recipe – instead of coconut, I added more oil, and used seasonings from the Joy of Cooking. Win. It didn’t have the tang of buttermilk, but it was tasty. We’re eating a TON of salad, which makes DH happy. He and 16yo are basically fine with the food as long as they can have a side of rice or a tortilla or something. As 16yo said, “You’re making more sauces and more meat, what’s not to like?” (My family LOVES sauce).
Anyway. There’s your status report. 🙂
