Good news!! I went to the podiatrist today [finally] and I don’t have a stress fracture in either of my feet! I was so happy to hear that. He thinks I just strained the area that was hurting. My feet have been feeling about 90% better lately but I’m still not going to run for at least a few more weeks. I’m really enjoying my new routine of biking, swimming, and lifting more.
I am still sick though. Boo to that. But it could always be so much worse!
My appetite was all over the place today. I’ve been really snacky…including
- graham crackers
- dark chocolate chunks
- spoonfuls of cottage cheese
- spelt bread
and a few other things I can’t think of…
Here were my bigger meals for the day…
- 1/3c rolled oats
- 2/3c plain hemp milk, 1/3c water
- 1 medium banana, thin sliced
- topped with: 1T unswt. coconut flakes, 2T granola, small spoon of Heather’s jam, and 1T pnut butter
Tea Forte’s green citrus loose leaf tea – very tasty!
A HUGE pillowy purple monster! [~20oz]
In the mix:
- handful of ice
- 2c spinach
- 8 frozen cherries
- a few frozen strawberries
- ~3/4c blueberries
- 1c plain hemp milk
- 1 scoop original Amazing Grass SuperFood
- 1T coconut butter
- 1/4 avocado
- ~2T almonds
Topped with: Quinoa Crunch Granola
I rate this 7.5/10 The texture/consistency was thick + perfect but the flavor was slightly bland. I think 1/2 banana would have helped.
Nothing too new and exciting going on around here. A lot of sitting on the couch + resting! My body kind of feels out of whack. I could really use a few 30min yoga sessions but my head is not ready to be bending over and whatnot. Hopefully soon.
Getting a little tired of tea, so I thought I’d make some hot cocoa. I ended up drinking about half.
water + 2t unswt fair trade organic cocoa + 2t sucanat + vegetarian marshmallows
Chris picked me up potato + leek soup from Whole Foods, that actually came fresh from a soup shop in Boulder [can’t think of the name] It was really tasty but has left me SO thirsty!! The sodium content wasn’t too awful but still high. I think that combined with being sick is making it worse. Yikes! He also picked up a fresh ciabatta roll…LOVE the texture of ciabatta.
Insert more snacking.
boring crazy + exciting news, I got my “products I dig” page up. I’ll be updating it every so often with new things I have tested + approved :) Let me know if you have questions about anything on there!
Oh, I forgot to mention that I had a TERRible headache, due to my cold thing I have going on. I didn’t want to take advil [try to limit it] so I was hoping it would just go away. Well around 3pm, about 10-20min after I drank that huge purple shake, it completely went away. I can’t say for sure if that was the reason it went away, but it does usually pick up my energy level on a normal day…so who knows!!
Any good weekend plans??
