*cause all my pictures lean right. See below for proof.
Hey there lovelies!
Thank you all so much for agreeing, understanding or stating your own opinion on my post yesterday! I love that!
I’m such a cheeseball. But really, thank you all so much for understanding me and why I feel inclined to fit back in my clothes.
I didn’t post last night, because I didn’t actually sleep Sunday night, so I was catching up on that stuff. Do you find that vacation totally messes with your sleep schedule? I took a nap Sunday and did not wake up until 9 PM! PM! That was PM! Anyway, I never could go back to sleep Sunday night, so I just got up at like 5 AM!!! and got ready for work.
So I was tired last night.
But, yesterday’s breakfast [that I enjoyed at leisure as I certainly had the time.]
Kashi + Almond Milk + berries.
This is my favorite ‘Jillian-style’ breakfast, so you will probably see a lot of it and it’s many variations to come. Also, you may see some oatmeal. What’s new?
This was supposed to be a broccoli, cheese and turkey wrap, but I had no wraps. So it was just a broccoli, cheese and turkey. I fly by the seat of my pants, I tell ya!
Pear + Almonds.
That was actually supposed to be an apple and cashews. But again, I improvised.
Then, after work I planned to go to the gym. But anyway, I went to CVS instead. And then I planned to go after I went home, but somehow I had a nap. And then it was late. And I was still tired. And my foot was still a bit swollen. [We shall get to that later.]
So I had dinner.
Which was COMPLETELY rebellious, as it was a salad with turkey and it was technically supposed to be chicken + wild rice.
See what I mean about ‘using meal plans as a guideline’. Eat whatever floats ya boat, as long as it is still beautiful and healthy.
Beautiful and healthy.
If you get the craving for something hideous and unhealthy, you can always fall back on the old meal plan to set ya straight! Win-win!
Also, if you have not the ingredients for the meal plan…well you might eat a salad.
After dinner, I once again retired to bed, so as to catch up on all my sleep. I did.
On the exercise front, well I have not discussed this on the blog yet, not sure why, other than I never really saw an opening for it.
But, after my marathon, I took my shoe off [obviously, who would be around me if I still had those stanky thangs on?] and my right foot was swollen. With a bruise on the side.
Mama D. freaked out a bit.
I did not. I knew what it was. Tendonitis.
See, a few years ago I had a bout of tendonitis on the same foot. Same place. I went to the doctor and had it diagnosed and all, and he gave me the prescription of no activity for two weeks and anti-inflammatory pills.
So when I started experiencing a little problem with it again during training, I sort of ignored it.
It happened right after I got new shoes, even though I got the same brand I have had since my last flare up. It wasn’t painful, much, just it would swell a little when I was in my shoes for a long period of time. Which, you know, I was.
Anyway, after the marathon it was bad. Like really bad. My entire foot, not just the top, was swollen for 2-3 days.
It is just now getting back to it’s normal ‘just the top’ swollen state. Looks fab. Anyhow, I haven’t put my shoes back on, have just been sticking to flats and hoping all goes back to normal soon. Like completely normal.
So, on the exercise front I think I am going to stick to yoga only [shoeless, yay!] for the next week or so and see how the foot does.
If it’s not better by then [three weeks post marathon] I shall most likely see my doctor and get some of those anti inflammatory pills. They are like magic, they are.
Plus, I think I am going to get new shoes. Again. Sigh…
Ever had tendonitis? Ever ignored it? Oh is that just me?
I KNOW! I should have not ignored it. I KNOW!
So anyway, that is my confession for the day. What’s yours?
