I was doing oh-so-well today! I was very productive! I made a new jar of soy milk, I made a bulk bag for flours and I walked to Granville Market to buy bulk stuff and local produce (sans stickers)… which happened to be closed (random, since it’s never closed!), but that’s besides the point.
I made it all the way until 8pm tonight. On Friday, I hurt my neck/shoulders/upper back pretty badly by trying to move my new (heavy, awkward) coffee table from my car in the underground parking up to my third-floor apartment.
I’ve done lots of stretching, used hot packs and cold packs, extra-strength Advil… everything I had on hand and nothing worked. Finally tonight I couldn’t put up with it anymore so I walked up to the drug store and bought a blister pack of “muscle and back pain relief” pills. 😦
My rule was that my health is my health and that’s above my plastic challenge, but I still feel like a failure! It’s only day 3! And I hate muscle relaxants because they wipe me right out and don’t get rid of the problem anyway. (I’d like to see an acupuncturist but I have to wait for an appointment.) So chances are I’ll only take the one I just took and then I won’t even use the rest of the pack.
Hopefully it’s worth it… 😦
