No lady would get near this fool after all the garlic in those "Egyptian refries."
My back didn't seem to mind the run, but the inner hips are warning me to rest today and all pertinent muscles were cumulatively tired from before. So, I plan to skip gym today and maybe tomorrow. Which is ok, as I want Sundays to be a gym day, rather than that kind of rest day.

"come back in a couple days" (means it's acute) Last night it was pretty tough even to drive.
I did enjoy several big salty pretzels with humous in the wee hours of morning though.

hey, is there any ginger in that menu plan? also, have you thought of boosting your turmeric intake? bromelain is also a good natural anti-inflammatory, your chiro will of course be able to help you with doasage.
