I broke a rib.
Okay that might be a lie.
But it might not.
Because that’s what it feels like.
My oblique pain has been varying each day, rotating between the left and the right side. Yesterday, I randomly did something at work (I don’t remember exactly – twisted or coughed or something), and I heard a crack. Literally, a sharp crack. Then, shooting shooting pain. I couldn’t move. I literally froze and felt that I couldn’t move.
Eventually I was able to slowly straighten my body and move, but the pain was awful. It felt so much better if I put a hand on my rib to support it, and if I didn’t have my hand on it, it feels like a heavy full type of feeling that feels like it’s “dropping.”
During the day, the pain gradually improved (it still hurt greatly – but not as bad as that initial couple hours). Until I sneezed later that night. And then it was all over.
Now this new rib pain feels different than the other stomach pain I’ve been feeling for the past week. I’m thinking maybe my abs/rib cartilage (or something) was inflamed and aggravated, therefore making it easier to crack or harm them?
Who knows- I very well likely did not crack one and I’m just over reacting. But I do know it hurts. Oh and I don’t have insurance until the first of December due to my job (minor minor detail right there. *sarcasm*)
Today it’s feeling slightly better. But still super painful. Oy.
I’m taking this week easy on the nannying job in order to let my stomach rest (picking up a 16-lb baby and hold her for hours does a number on ya!). Therefore I slept it, and had a delicious breakfast.
- Homemade pumpkin yogurt
- Crumbled bran muffin (forgot I had a few in the freezer!!)
- Pumpkin butter
- Almond butter
Muffin on yogurt is delicious!
I ran a few errands (hello Christmas shopping!), and came home to eat a quick lunch. Kashi sweet & sour chicken I’ve had forever. I actually brought this meal down with me from home this summer.
I considered throwing in some more veggies but decided I didn’t feel like making them.
I also felt some desire to add more sugar to the already sugar-laden dish with some BBQ sauce. That’s why it’s a tad more red than normal if you were wondering.
I had veggie soup for dinner and I must share the delicious salad I also had at work tonight. It was a beet + goat cheese salad that I added some kidney beans and olives to. Random?
There was tons leftover (apparently beet and goat cheese isn’t the popular choice of most people), so I was told I could bring some home YAY.
Once home I snacked on a few things that remain unpictured. Meh.
What’s your favorite yogurt topping? I love cereal for the crunch. But really, I think a warmed up muffin might be pushing up there for #1!
