Look who’s back home, safe & sound!
Little Popcorn has had quite the adventurous week—from noshing on my computer charger and earning himself a time-out, to eating a chocolate bar & having to get his stomach pumped. Poor little guy is pooped out!
I tell Will on a daily basis that I’m counting down until the day that the Corn Pops hits the “two-year-old” mark, which I’ve heard is usually the age that puppies begin to calm their nerves. Even though he’s only been home for a day, I’m already noticing that he’s been slightly more lovey & cuddly, and less playful and rowdy (…I said “slightly”…)
Maybe that two-year calm will be here sooner than I thought? 8)
Breakfast this morning was in the style of Ener-G toast, nut butter & a sliced banana, but with a new spin–
Cashew butter! Instead of my usual Sunbutter spread, I made the choice to break into my Artisana stash and test out the cashew butter for the first time.
I will admit, initially I was a bit hesitant because the butter seemed difficult to spread (gotta love natural oil separation!) but after plopping a spoonful in a bowl and a quick zap in the microwave, it was more than ready to go.
Paired with the banana slices the cashew butter was pretty good, although I’m still partial to my beloved coconut butter.
And naturally, the whole shebang was plated with a side of turkey bacon
Today I have my first appointment with a chiropractor to get my back & spine checked out after a few weeks of feeling not-so dandy. I’ve always been one to carry stress in my upper and lower back, but lately I’ve been having pretty bad pains whenever I’m forced to sit down for an extended period of time.
I’ve heard a lot of mixed opinions about chiropractors—some really good & some really bad. But then again, isn’t that usually the case with anything?
Here’s to hoping that they’re able to offer me some solutions to give my poor little back a break. My foam roller & yoga mat have run out of ideas..
A bit to think about: Ever been to a chiropractor?
