How appropriate that just after starting a blog to chronicle this sort of thing, I wind up taking an “endo day.” To be fair, it’s not just the endo – it’s also the first time I’ve gotten my period since the surgery, and without birth control pills. It’s brutal. I’m in so much pain – especially lower back and hip pain. I can barely lie down OR sit up. I did manage to make a healthy breakfast smoothie with lots of spinach.
In the blender:
- Almond milk
- chia seeds
- all natural peanut butter
- plain cocoa powder
- chocolate/peanut butter protein powder (whey)
So, the only thing I’d change there is a different protein powder, but this is a giant tub so I want to use it up!
My plan for today is to try to get some work done from home so that today isn’t a total loss.
