After having the Monday blues yesterday, today was a terrific day! I woke up before my alarm, and so I wasn’t rushed! This is the first morning in forever I haven’t felt like I was running the Derby trying to get ready for work.
Every good day has to start out with a healthy breakfast.
They don’t get creamy like oats do, but they are a good alternative. The strawberries and “granola” made my morning.
Dinner was another fast meal prepared mostly by Luvy. We had baked sole with garlic, dill, and basil, daddy’s green beans, and cinnamon mashed sweet potatoes.
I can’t believe that I am actually eating fish and not hating it. I don’t crave it or LOVE it, but I can eat it and my stomach doesn’t hurt. I can learn to love it if my stomach doesn’t hurt after eating it.
For my night-time snack, I wanted a slice of my homemade kamut and amaranth bread with almond butter. I went to cut it and noticed it had a weird smell and had white powdery stuff on it. 😦 I ate a little over 3/4 of the loaf, but it is was still a bummer to toss it. I settled for some almond milk and carob “hot chocolate” while working on research for school stuff.
Tonight, I did Insanity Power and Resistance DVD. I have been doing Insanity every day now for a couple of weeks. It is fun, but I miss my running.
I haven’t run on it for 3 weeks now. I’m trying to rest it so that it can heal- I don’t want to injure it more or do any more damage. I have lateral knee pain and it feels like it goes under my knee cap. I thought it was an IT band problem, but I’m not certain. I’m getting stir crazy not being able to run. Especially since this week it is going to be in the upper 60’s and pretty!
Have any of you ever had running injuries? What did you do to exercise instead of running?
