Back update, and New Recipe

My back is definitely doing better today. Was able to do yoga. Also, since I’m over a month out, was able to do some ab work: I can tell I haven’t done this for a while! I actually really love exercising because of how I feel afterwards – strong! I’m looking forward to my back continuing to improve, and going for a WALK.

I also tried out a new recipe, something called a “chaffle”. Basically just egg and cheese in a waffle iron. You can optionally add other things like veggies. I have a little 4″ mini waffle iron that’s perfect for this! One egg and 1/4 cup of cheese makes 2 chaffles. Yummy! Here’s a picture, although I forgot to take a picture before eating so this is only 1/4 of one.

An interesting illustration of how much I can eat: I ate two of these, which was basically the whole egg and some cheese, with a little Smart Balance on top, and I am FULL. Actually maybe a little too full. Next time I’ll eat only one, and see how I do.
