I can’t believe I’ve even touched on this yet, but last week I got the BEST news last week! Got a phone call from my MS doc last week to hear my MRI showed no change from last year!! 8 months now completely free of meds and there is no sign of any damage caused 🙂 I couldn’t be happier to hear that! Now to just continue to look for solutions to resolve some of the damage the meds caused over the years, such as my effed up stomach. So far the naturopath’s diet suggestions seem to be providing a sense of hope there too.
Nutritional point – First… I’m SO friggin hungry today!! Arg! Second… I’m finally really getting my shit together and planning my meals for each day rather than just stuffing my lunch bag with healthy stuff and hoping for the best. Saddest part – 2tbsp of peanut butter. I don’t know how anyone can call that a serving it’s such a tease! The protein part I’m struggling with a bit though cause even with my omelet in the morning, 1/2 chicken breast for snack, full chicken breast at lunch, other half breast for 2nd snack and full chicken or salmon portion at dinner, I’m STILL 30g short for protein!! Work in progress I guess. Might have to turn to protein powder for a little help, but NOT the hemp crap the naturopath recommended. That shit’s gross! Gotta draw the line somewhere…
On to crossfit details. After my crash landing last Friday my body was kinda wrecked for a few days. Saturday rest day, Sunday slow-as-f*ck at ball hockey, Monday WOD, Tuesday scaled WOD and Tuesday rest day – CHECK. I seem to have my shit together again now, just in time for today’s deceiving slice of hell and tomorrow’s HERO Friday. On paper, today didn’t sound all that bad but in reality… OH GOD MY LEGS!!
