One of the advantages to being married to an acupuncturist: free treatments!
I was feeling absolutely terrible this afternoon, so the Husband and I drove to the clinic so he could give me a treatment. That makes me the first person the Husband has treated in the new clinic! Whoo-hoo! He gets his official license in three weeks or so (which is why he isnâ€™t on the clinic website yet, in case you looked).
The treatment was great. I even fell asleep on the table for 15 minutes. When he took the needles out, I curled in a little ball and sleep for an additional 30 minutes! It was lovely. 🙂
No, acupuncture does not hurt! It sometimes feels like a bit of pressure when the needle goes in, but thatâ€™s it. And it really does work!
Pre-treatment snack was a mini cinnamon roll + a slice of coffee cake (samples from Great Harvest):
I got a TON of work done this afternoon â€“ it was actually the first time Iâ€™ve ended my work day feeling accomplished and completed in a LONG time.
Snack time for an apple:
Around 7 PM. I pulled myself away from the computer and took James on a long, fast walk around the neighborhood. I did about 1.5 miles in 22 minutes or so. We were both winded and sweaty by the end.
And then my in-laws and my brother-in-law Nick arrived! As they transition the clinic from Florida to North Carolina, they are doing three weeks in Florida and a few days here.
I made us a massive Indian food spread (thank you, Trader Joeâ€™s!)
My plate full of goodies! I had broccoli, naan, a samosa, rice, chickpea masala, another Indian dish that I canâ€™t remember the name, and baked tofu. It was a lot of stuff, but small portions of each so I donâ€™t feel stuffed.
