Mamavation Monday: Liquids Work?
I've been eating a LOT of soup lately, which keeps my calories down and my fluids up. Taking a time out to have some California rolls today though. I have no idea how some people can stick to a soup diet. I'm only doing it because I have such a hard time keeping hydrated. I've been tracking my calories and I am way down, so trying to balance keeping hydrated with NOT going into starvation mode (something that happens often since I tend to hyperfocus and then forget to eat. I can go months with eating just once a day ... and then wonder why I am so tired all the time!). And that explains my slight weight gain. I realize it could be worse. I really need to up my activity.

Have you ever been injured starting a new exercise routine? Tell us about it…If not, do you get any aches and pains? Where?Aches and pains, me? You're kidding, right? I have chronic low-back pain and am constantly out of alignment -- to the point where even my knees need to be adjusted! I think my chiropractor wonders how I am able to function. I tend to use ThermaCare (because I can get them in bulk at Costco), but Salonpas has been suggested. I remember it from when I was a kid and my grandmother used it for her arthritis :) Any other aches or pains I deal with using an NSAID pain reliever.
