Today I did some PT exercises since my knee is feeling a bit better. Which is surprising since I had volleyball last night. I forgot about that when I wrote my post yesterday. It was a tough game too. Normally court volleyball is played with 6 people we only had four! I had to hustle! Lots of running and jumping. I thought for sure my knee was going to feel it today. I only have one game left for the season so I think it will be ok. It was so fun though! It reminded me of my sand volleyball days!
The PT exercises took me 50 minutes! I think it will go quicker next time. I was going slow and making sure I was doing everything correctly. I also worked the other leg for preventative maintenance. I did not want the uninjured leg to feel left out. In addition, I did a 10 minute walk and a fairly slow pace (3.5-3.8 MPH). I think that’s enough for today. I need to make up a Tabata workout for tomorrow.
For lunch today I utilized the left overs from last nights dinner. Well most of them. My husband came home and devoured all of the shrimp (with potato chips and pistachios too I might add!) So I used all the items he did not eat: lentils, mixed kales and spinach, sprouts, and croutons. I turned it into a soup/salad combo.
With the lentils I made a quick soup and ladled it onto a bed of the kale and spinach. I topped it with sprouts and a few croutons. The greens wilted up into the soup making it a warm, comforting, eye pleasing, healthful dish! I would eat this again! Look how pretty!
Do you and your significant other have the same taste preferences/eating practices?
My husband is not all that concerned about healthful eating and some times it drives me crazy (like when I have prepared a nice full meal and only a bit of it is eaten. :))
Now I am off to do a bit of grocery shopping.
I hope you all have a great day!
