I have beenreborn! In posting Paleo recipes again! How did that happen?! Why did that happen?! (You may (or may not) ask). Got a couple minutes? Let me answer your questions. I know you're anxiously waiting.
After a fun night of playing with my 1.5 year old nephew I woke up around 7:30 the next morning with intense pain in the left upper part of my body (shoulders, neck, arm). I was crying it hurt so damn bad. No, it wasn’t a heart attack- even though it felt like it could have been- even though I have no idea what that feels like. I went to ExpressCare. After seeing the doctor- I found out I had a pinched nerve in my neck. PAINFUL. I got some pain medicine and took it easy for a couple days. About a week after my nerve got pinched- I was in my car- on my way to lunch and had a bag of trail mix in my car (it’s a almond, berry & pistachio mix- nom nom nom). I was so hungry and didn’t want to wait 4 more minutes to get home and eat lunch… I tilted my head back to toss some mix in my mouth and POP! Seriously?? I didn’t snap my neck back- I didn’t force it back- I gently and slightly tilted my head back. Extreme pain- except now at the base of my neck. On to the Chiropractor I went.
The moral of my story is- KEEP YOURSELF HEALTHY. Eat healthy, exercise and STRETCH regularly. I was told by the doctor that people “my age” become more prone to this type of injury. Hell. I just turned 28! Zach and I do pretty well with eating right but I must admit- working out and stretching is something we need to work on. I don't want anyone to go through what I am now. So. Read up and eat up! Ha, that's stupidly catchy..
