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. 🙂
