Hey guys! Before I get this post started, I just wanted to say thanks so much for the positive feedback from yesterday’s post about how to use google analytics to grow your blog. I *love* it when other bloggers post tips and tricks they have learned along the way, and I always want to share anything I learn as well. I actually have been writing that post off and on for several months so I’m happppppy that several people said they found the info useful. Sadly, I have A LOT of other google analytics tips, so maybe I can muster up a Part 2 for that post someday! haha.
Being stared down by my dog. I’m just telling you this because it’s making me uncomfortable and I don’t know if I will be able to finish this post.
I mentioned on Friday that I started dealing with some major dizziness issues that started Thursday evening. They were basically debilitating over the weekend. I followed up with my doctor on Monday and was diagnosed with vertigo. It is completely random and I’m not sure what caused it. It’s the first time I’ve ever had it and I will give you the basic summary of this condition: you feel like your entire world is spinning and that you are living in hell.
My doctor referred me to physical therapy and THANK YOU BABY JESUS I work in a hospital with an awesome rehab department and they were able to see me right away. I had the canalith repositioning procedure done yesterday and I am already feeling 1000x better. They said it might take a day or two to see if I’m really back to normal, and I have a follow-up with them on Thursday.
What’s funny is that I was JUST bragging about how I was finished with physical therapy…. jokes on me I guess.
What I Ate Wednesday
Are these link-ups going on anymore? I’m not sure because I fell out of the blogosphere for a while. Either way, I’m going to keep this train moving because I take approximately 900 pictures of food every week.
You are going to be completely shocked by this breakfast.
Cottage cheese? Fruit? I’m sure you’re surprised. I’m just really loving cottage cheese this summer because it’s cold, simple, requires no prep and has 20+ grams of protein in 1 cup. I got the blueberries fresh from someone at work and paired this with a diced nectarine.
Lunch came in 2 parts.
Part Uno: I chopped up a tomato and cucumber from the farmer’s market, covered it in herbed goat cheese and drizzled red wine vinegar on top. Basically, this whole concoction was an excuse for me to eat a ton of goat cheese. And I’m not sorry about it.
Part Dos: I was hungry about an hour later and ate a piece of toast with peanut butter and jelly. Because duh, peanut butter and jelly.
The main thing you should know about my eats this week is that I purchased a yellow watermelon for the first time. A farmer persuaded me to try it at the farmer’s market, and I’m supposed to report back on Saturday and let her know the verdict.
Thoughts: the texture was similar to a pink watermelon but maybe a little more crunchy. It was sweet, but not in the same way as a pink watermelon. The seeds are bigger and harder (and uglier, haha). Overall I liked it but like pink watermelon better. I guess it doesn’t matter because I basically inhaled the entire thing… per usual for me!!
Woop, kind of loved dinner this night…. a pork loin prepared in the slow cooker (so the meat completely fell apart- t.h.e.b.e.s.t.), garlic and herb quinoa and baked squash and zucchini.
I’m off to play with Lily…. or walk her…. or feed her. Or just figure out why she’s staring me down.
Questions for you:
Have you ever had vertigo?
What is a new food you’ve tried recently?
Have you ever tried a yellow watermelon?
Does your pet ever stare at you like a creep?
