Yep I did something to the back of my right knee. It started to hurt late yesterday afternoon after I had been to the gym and did some running on the treadmill. So last night I did some icing of it thinking that it would help. When I got up this morning to take the pups for a walk, it wasn’t to bad. it just ached a little bit. Now today after I went to my circuit training class it hurts. In fact I had to sit at the front desk for an hour and by the time I got up from the chair it was stiff as stiff can be and I could barely bend it. It is a little swollen but not too much. I am going to ice it tonight to see how it feels. Hopefully it will be better so I can continue my training for the Couch to 5K plan. If any other runner out there knows of something that I can do it help it, please let me know. I am so new to running don’t even know where to begin. Thanks.
So for breakfast this morning I was craving peanut butter. Well, I didn’t want the carbs of bread so I had some oatmeal
In the mix:
- 1/3 cup oatmeal
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup almond milk – Then when done I added
- Spoonful of Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter
- Crumbled on top was a Pumpkin Spice Vitalicious Muffin. (They have been in the freezer for quite awhile and I need to use them up.
It was delicious and it hit my peanut butter and sweet craving. Plus I was starving after getting back from taking the pups for a walk.
So I hit the gym for my circuit class from 11:30 to noon. What torture it was. The trainer worked the triceps hard today. My arms were like jello by the end of the class. I probably won’t even be able to move them in the morning.
So for lunch, it is Wednesday, which means it is $5.00 salad or sandwich at Olde Boston’s and it is on the main floor of the building. I couldn’t pass it up. I wasn’t all that hungry but I knew I needed some protein.
I had a Grilled Chicken Ciabatta Sandwich which consisted of grilled chicken breast on a Ciabatta bun topped with Swiss cheese, bacon, tomato, lettuce and mayo and a side of fries. The bacon wasn’t crispy so I ended up taking it out of the sandwich and not eating it plus the fries weren’t crispy so I only had 2 of them. By the time I got done, this is what the plate looked like
I only ended up eating 3/4 of the sandwich. It just wasn’t sitting very well. Apparently reading all of the other food bloggers has made me more conscious of what I put in my mouth because after eating 2 fries I really felt guilty and didn’t eat any more. This of course with my old self would never have happened. I would have eaten them all even though they weren’t crisp.
The afternoon flew by at work. Luckily because I was in no mood to be there. Hubby made supper once again (I know ladies, I have quite the gem there and I am defintely going to keep him.)
He tried to duplicate Taco Bell’s Burito Supreme but I modified mine a little. In the mix was refried beans, taco meat, enchilada sauce, lettuce and greek yogurt. I skipped the cheese and sour cream. With a side of roasted aspargus. We have been craving the aspargus so we got some at the grocery store.
Yup, Chickie is all prim and proper when she eats her burito. She also loves roasted aspargus. She ate half the pan herself tonight. On the other hand, Bubba won’t touch it with a 10 foot pole. It was hate day at school, notice Chickie’s sparkly hat. She is soo into hats. Good thing she doesn’t have her credit card otherwise it would be maxed out on hats.
Well now it is off to have one of these
and help Hubby with the basement. Have a great night.
