Good Morning 🙂

Today I got up and had a nice bowl of oatmeal!  It was rolled oats made with water (on the thin side) and topped with: Banana, chopped dates, pecans, pumpkin seeds, and flax seeds.  It hit the spot!

After I ate I was excited to get started on my run since it is a cardio day.  I loaded up my little girl in the jogger, grabbed the leashes for the dogs (only my little man, bear wanted to come again) and went on a 30 minute walking warm up.

We got back to the house and I let the dog in and got started on my run!  About three minutes in I felt a twinge of pain in my bad knee.  I shrugged it off.  I felt another, and another and I had to stop.

I walked back home very disappointed.  So today ended up being a 40 minute or so walk day.  It’s ok, just not what I wanted.  I came home and iced my knee and hip and made a smoothie.  There is no pain in the knee right now, just tightness in the hip.  I guess I need to take it easy again.

It was very good!  I mixed the following:

  • 2 cups of kale (de-stemmed and torn)
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 scoop Jay Robb protein powder (chocolate)

I blended the kale and water until it was as smooth as I could get it.  Then I added the rest.  It was very creamy, not overly sweet, and pleasantly green tasting.  I would make this one again!

I am trying not to be bummed out by my knee today, but it did dampen my spirits.  I know it’s silly to be upset about it, but still frustrating. 😦

Now I am off to run a few errands and try to hit the farmers market before it is closed!

Have a good afternoon

Talk soon.  🙂
