A Not So Ordinary Day in the Life of a Psychiatrist: on the job injury

This blog could easily be named the “hunt and peck” blog.  I’m typing this, while I’m all gimpy.  At times, I’m even typing with an ice pack resting on my wrist.  Yeah, I have to use my creativity for more than just blogging.  You may be wondering how I got here.  Let me tell you a little story.  Hi, my name is Dr. Ericka, and I’m a psychiatrist.  I was having an uneventful day at work until I heard screaming.  By the time I was able to intervene, the situation had already escalated.

I’m Back

Hi.  Thanks for stopping by.  I’m picking up my fitness journey with a back and neck injury, but I’m determined to get back on the “wagon.”  It’s time to quit making excuses about comfort food and how I’ll get started again tomorrow.  I need some help.  I need suggestions on good exercise alternatives with a gimpy back.  Thanks ahead a time.  I know what I need to do on the food side…quit shoveling crap in my mouth.  My body is revolting anyway.  It’s saying “Give us us low fat” (imagine Djimon Hounsou in Amistad).  LOL. I’ve definitely been indulging in more fried food and candy.  Well, I’m off to get myself together and work on this site.  Have a great day!

Much nub and health,

Dr. Ericka

Revisiting Portion Control

Today was a better day for portion control.  I need to get a handle on my food/drink intake, since limited calories are being burned.  Please let me know if you have any suggestions on exercise to do while dealing with a back and neck injury.  I’m feeling a bit sluggish.  I’m sure tomorrow will be a better day because I’m getting back into my normal routine.  I’m done with the comfort food.  Ok, not forever done, but finished with overindulging.  I also plan to make sure that I am getting a solid night’s sleep each evening to let my body heal.  I’m getting back on the path.  Thanks for believing in me!
Fitness or bust!
