I can walk!
With a little limp.
It’s been almost a week since my PRP treatment to regrow a ligament my ankle. I can’t think about running yet, but I can ride a bike! I’ve been doing 10 miles at verrrrry low resistance on the old folks bike. You know the one – with the reclined back lounge chair. No shame!
Let’s pretend I didn’t wear my new Fabletics leggings 4 days in a row.
My problem with cardio – especially easy “recovery” cardio is that it’s boring. How do people stay on these machines for an hour+?! I’ve decided there’s no shame in playing video poker while I peddle away. I got second in a tournament yesterday!
I’ve been doing upper body at the gym too. I’ve done shoulder, triceps, chest, biceps on my own. Yesterday I met my trainer at the meathead gym for back. I say meathead gym because this was in the parking lot:
WHY does anyone need a car that big? I can’t even imagine how much gas it takes. See the Range Rover to the left of it? That’s a full-sized Rover and it looks tiny. How do you even get in it? They’d have to throw me a rope!
The next car just made me smile. Check out the license plate. What do you think the odds are that the diver is a stripper? Hahaha!
Breakfast was a little “meh,” but I was running late to get to the gym. So whatever.
I had a leftovers salad with local greens, grilled chicken, raspberries, and eggplant. The eggplant I’d roasted in my favorite Stone Beer BBQ Sauce the night before. If you’ve never tried that, I highly recommend it. It was a quick and easy side!
The drink on the side is something I’m experimenting with. I admitted a few weeks ago that, while it seems like on big party, I’ve had a lot of change int he past year and it does get to me. When I read about this Adrenals Mocktial in Ann Marie‘s guest post Lindsay’s blog, I had to check it out. I’m only on my second day drinking it, so I haven’t noticed anything yet… but even if it doesn’t work, it’s really delicious!
I had a super-productive day. My long list of errands is complete, I got a library card, took out the trash, and had a great workout. Vegas is out of town, but I felt like a fancy dinner was in order.
I roasted turbot in the oven with pepper, garlic, onion, and red pepper flakes. Meanwhile, I grilled red and yellow bell peppers and onion on the stove top with some balsamic. Lastly, I made a quick spiralized carrot salad that turned out way better than I’d hoped. Time to do a recipe post!
Cheers to romancing yo’ self. (TWSS)
Greek yogurt, chocolate protein powder, and coconut flour. I topped it with kabocha, peanut flour sauce, cacao nibs, and a little whipped cream. Because romancing yourself should always end with something sweet. 😉
I just heard this quote and wanted to share it: “Love yourself for what your body can do, not what it looks like.”
Do you ever make a nice dinner just for you?
Are you an indoor cardio person? How do you get through it?
