Clear but Fuzzy

Well, except for what I already knew about the soft tissue damage in my neck/shoulders and some swelling on my knee and collarbone, I’m all in the clear health-wise. Thank goodness!

The worst thing? i’m having horrible headaches, and my doc told me today that I may have them for the rest of the week off and on because, with impact like that, it can actually bruise the brain a little which means killer headaches. Good thing I have those pain killers – they do wonders on these headaches, but they do make me a little fuzzy. Hopefully I won’t have any big projects at work this week!

Before my appointment, I stopped and got a fat free peppermint mocha for the wait


I started the second book in that coffeehouse series this morning and love it already – I’m going to have to buy the rest of the series pretty soon.

All in all, the appoinment went well. He checked me over and nothing seemed strange or out of place and he was happy that I’d already had x-rays done on my knee and neck and that nothing was wrong there. He said I should be feeling back to normal by next week, except for maybe a headache or  two so I’m happy with that.

Lunch today was easy to make and easy to pack.

I had a veggie burger on an arnold thin


along with some broccoli salad I threw together yesterday while making dinner


  • broccoli
  • sliced grapes
  • ff cheddar cheese
  • bacon bits (2 Tbsp in the whole dish)
  • mixture of ff plain yogurt/dijon/salt/pepper
  • diced red onion

and some cantaloupe/pineapple


My body isn’t too sore or stiff today, but staring at a computer is not helping my headache. I took a pain pill with lunch, hoping that this headache will go away soon – if not, I hope this afternoon flies by  :)

What’s your favorite summer salad?


  1. Yay for the clean bill of health! I hope those headaches subside soon….

    Favorite summer salad? Potato! With lots of hard boiled eggs and mayo. Mmm….

  2. You poor thing! Headaches are the worst!! My favorite summer salad is one from my country club that they only serve on the outdoor deck, SO simple, but SO clean and tasty: Romaine with feta, pinenuts and dried cranberries with a white balsamic viniagarette. Seems like a little bit of food, but they serve it in a mixing bowl!! Love it!

  3. I hope you are feeling better soon :(

    My favorite summer salad is Tabouleh. Yum!

  4. summer salads are always fruit salads…with lots of melons!

    otherwise…i’ve discovered cold couscous salads which will def start becoming a summer fav!

  5. I agree…the headaches are normal. Isn’t it great to know that you’re normal?? ;-)

    My favorite summer salad: homegrown tomatos, cucumber and thinly sliced red onion.

    Which goes perfect with my favorite summer summer meal: grilled burger patty topped with mustard, pickles and thinly sliced onion served with a side of cottage cheese and summer tomato/cucumber/onion salad. With a tall glass of mint iced tea. Oh. Can’t have a summer meal without a summer dessert of sliced strawberries and kiwi!

    All served poolside, of course!! ;-)

  6. Glad your appointment went well dear! Hope your headaches subside soon! My fav summer salad would def be anything with fruit or tuna salad–my mom’s is killer(and healthy)!
