So....here's some random eats from the past week!
Dinner from a few nights ago...Quinoa, broccoli, yellow squash, and corn. Quinoa=deliciousness!
~Pearberry Oats~ 1/2 c Irish Oats, 1/2 fresh pear, almond butter, all natural no-sugar added raspberry jelly, wheat germ cooked in. This combo (minus the wheat germ and oats) is also super yummy on ezekiel as a sammie!
~Fitness Is Fun!~
Lunges: Great for you legs, butt, hip flexors, and even abs. Stand with your feet just slightly wider than your hips. Make sure your toes are pointing forward. Bend one knee as you lean into the side of the leg you are bending, keeping the opposite leg straight. I did some of these today at physical therapy!
So I have to have an MRI this week for a weird lump that my physical therapist found on my calf...the ordeal never ends! Going to the doctor tomorrow for him to check it out before I have the MRI...
Today at PT I made a lot of progress. I actually put on my skates and walked around in them...I even did some basic knee exercises with them on! It felt fantastic just to be back IN my skates...it felt RIGHT. My therapist said I have a much better chance of getting back on the ice sooner after today and after she saw how much progress I had made since Monday. My knee actually didn't even hurt when I was in my skates. My therapist was so surprised! I have a little bit more hope after today's session...I hope tomorrow goes just as well!
I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the day and remember that no matter what bad things happen, they will always get better. I have had to keep telling myself that throughout this injury, and though I have to admit it doesn't ALWAYS make me feel better, 75% of the time it does...along with great friends :)
Stay happy and of course, stay healthy :)
oh...one more thing...I recently bought some edamame....any ideas on what to use it for? I'm VERY open to suggestions on this one! ;)
