I am very upset

I had a 9:40 a.m. appointment with my chiropractor this morning. She asked what I was going to do today, so I told her I was going to workout later in the morning. She said no, I should wait 24 hours before I worked out. It's rather ironic. When I was working as a nurse my lower back would hurt when I had to stand or walk for any length of time. Now that I have a job where I will be sitting at least part of the time, my upper back hurts. I had a strange mass near my spine a month or so ago. She said it was a rib that had "popped". She "hammered" and massaged my back and it went back into place. Now I get a burning stabbing pain in the same area. So, anyway, I have to wait until tomorrow to start the exercise portion of Body for Life.

My food choices today were:1/4 cup old fashioned oatmeal (I don't like instant), 1/4 cup low fat cottage cheese, 1/4 cup of pineapple chunks and 2 ounces of ham for breakfast. I had a Maxplex™ Nutrition Bar - Peanut Caramel Crispfor one snack and a chocolate Desginer Whey protein drink for another snack. For dinner I had a large salad with a no fat ranch dressing and 3 ounces of baked skinless, boneless chicken. I will have a small box of raisins and a wedge of light Swiss original Laughing Cow cheese. I LOVE this cheese! I love any cheese, but I really, really LOVE THIS cheese! It's sooooo good!!

This will keep me within my Weight Watchers points. I will go 1.5 into my 35 weekly points, but that's ok, usually by Monday I've already used all of them I still have about 15 left. I tend to eat the same thing over and over until I get tired of it. So, I'm going to try to find new Body for Life recipes and some lowfat, high protein recipes. The breakfast I described is my favorite breakfast, that I got from BFL (Body for Life). I've also got to get my protein drink recipes out and go through them. I especially like my "Reese's Peanut Butter" protein drink and "Peppermint Patty" protein drink.
