I had an early morning (7:45am) physical therapy appointment where they continue to work on my chest, neck, and upper back so I can gain some additional range of motion. No injury - I'm just wicked tight so I swim slow. But I really don't have normal range of motion. I aspire to be average one of these days. The session starts with a nice (relative term here) massage and then I do some strengthening of my rotator cuff and some core work. The core is not for my shoulders, but it's always good to do!
Back at work and around 10:30 am I eat the leftover eggs I had scrambled with spinach, zucchini and chickpeas. Two veggie servings here. A little before 2pm I had my second lunch of leftover salmon with the zucchini (guess I had leftover zucchini today!) and shitake mushrooms. I also snacked on a few regular raw mushrooms. One and a half veggie servings here. I headed back over to PT (it's right across the street from where I work) as I had a real massage scheduled. She just worked on my legs. I must have a really high tolerance for pain, as I was dozing while she dug her elbow into my calf. Yowzers!
More work and then I'm getting hungry before it's time to go so I get my fruit and cottage cheese. These grapes were really sweet! An awesome afternoon snack! Two fruit servings here.
|the container was full when I started, empty when I finished.|
My actual dinner ended up being leftover pork, cauliflower, and salsa from last night. A slightly smaller portion, but the same meal nonetheless. And it still tasted delicious. I'll go with one and a half servings of veggies at dinner.
Total fruit and veggie servings: 9.5
Not a bad day...See you tomorrow!
