Happy Memorial Day! I hope that you had a great one. Thank you all so much for your sweet comments about my fall. I honestly can’t believe how much it has taken out of me. Its been a super sore couple of days but I’m hoping tomorrow will be much better. I’ve been resting (and its driving me crazy), taking epsom salt baths (its a good hurt?)and I’m currently lying with my feet elevated to try and reduce some of the swelling in my knees. I can’t wait until things are back to normal!
Anywho, today was obviously a pretty low key day. I woke up and made myself a delicious omelet with bell pepper, onion, sundried tomato, spinach and provolone cheese. I also had a toasted bagel thin on the side. It was delish.
After breakfast, I relaxed and then decided to try doing some upper body exercises to get my blood flowing. I did some push ups, side planks, bicep curls and shoulder raises followed by some crunches. It felt good to do something besides sit on (half of) my rear.
After my little workout, I took and epsom salt bath. It was not fun, but I’m hoping that it will speed up the healing process. By the time I was out and dressed, I was more than ready for some lunch and had half a pita with hummus, lettuce, sprouts, tempeh and some hot sauce – with pickles on the side, of course.
This afternoon I managed to get a lot of school work done which felt really good. I started getting hungry again around 3 and had a nanner with pb sauce (peanut butter with a bit of almond milk and heated – edibleperspective style). :)
I worked until about 4:30 and then gave in to rare daytime tv. It was a nice treat. Once Brian got home from helping a friend move, we took a ride up north to get out of the house and pick up some dinner from our favorite Thai restaurant. I ordered some Tom Yum soup with shrimp and a carrot, cashew, tomato and green bean salad.
The soup had great flavor, but it definitely needed more oomph. There were two tiny shrimp in there and a few floating mushrooms but was otherwise just broth. The carrot salad, on the other hand, was delicious!
We just finished a game of cribbage and some leftover frozen yogurt and I’m feeling quite sleepy. I think it may be time to bandage up and head to bed. :)
Have a great night and an even better day tomorrow, friends!
