SO I REALLY DID HEAR MY NECK CRACK.. ecchh...

Yesterday I ventured out into the world of chiropractic care... and yes he did crack my neck.. and oddly enough.. my neck feels pretty darn good.. now the space between the back of my neck at the top of my ass ( MY BACK!!!!) is raging right now.. lets see if I can give you a graphic discription.. I woke up crying.. yeah thats pretty bad pain.. it lightened up a bit after a hot shower.. but I am sitting here wondering if the chiropractor is a good thing or a bad thing.. I can turn my neck completely to the left right now.. which is amazing because I have not done that in a VERY VERY LONG TIME.. and I* can turn it completely to the right and lean it back and fowards with very little pulling or pain.. but everything else is just screaming.. so.. if any one has done the chirpractor thing.. toss in your words of advice.. do i tough it out or give it up...

Food wise.. I am okay.. so thats good.. I am going to try a new recipe this weekend.. Black Bean brownies.. I am going to make it the cheap way first ( box brownie mix and black beans..) if I like it that way then I will use on of the scratch recipes.. suppose to be good.. we shall see.. I will post on it on Monday..
I want to thank each of you once again for your stellar responses and kind comments... I do so appreciate it ... and it is important to me that you know that....

. I was once asked to give a sample of my daily menu .. so here it is..: I am not big about posting what I eat since I keep a food log.. but here is an idea:

This morning...
Homemade real oatmeal ( I make it on Sunday night a huge batch and eat it throug the week)
with fresh chopped apples.. and a little fat free milk .. mixed together and nuked..

snack Yoplait thick and creamy 100 calorie yogurt YYY YUM...
small Black Arkansas apple with PB2 PB

Lunch will be : a tomato and light cream cheese sandwich on multi grain healthy bread
small Black Arkansas apple

Snack : Fiber one chocolate bar

Dinner : Homemade Chicken soup with lots of carrots in it YUMMMMY.. a slice of multi grain bread with a one ounce of a good hard cheese ( I forget the name) melted on it..

Snack ... 1 Sugar free fudge pop

Sometimes I eat more fruits .. some times more veggies.. sometimes I throw in a rice cake or 2 it just depends.. but that is my menu for today... now I gotta go log it..

Today I am keeping it short and sweet...
Wish me well
Wish you well too..

Homemade soup is perfect for this time of year! I made a huge pot in the slow cooker last night actually. :)

I've never heard of these black bean brownies, would love to see your results when you make em!

I hope your back is feeling better soon, maybe the chiropractor can undo what he has done by giving you a few stretching exercises to do?

I'm really glad you can move your neck but I want all of you to feel better soon {{{{HUGS}}}}

Sorry you are hurting. You just made me want chicken noodle soup. I'll have to try my hand at it next week.

mmmmm..chicken soup...email me some! :) I have never been to a chiropractor. Sounds a wee bit nightmarish.

Oh I love oatmeal too! I made some this morning in the rice cooker. I love steel cut oats with chopped apples!
