A Challenging Day – The first of many I bet.
Yesterday my right knee started hurting on and off in the afternoon. I took some Advil, put my feet up after dinner and was convinced everything would be great today. Not so much… I got up this morning to work out and could barely bend my knee. I was basically pulling my leg behind me as I limped down the hallway to the bathroom. I could not imagine making it safely down the stairs to the garage. I was either going to fall down the stairs or end up stuck when I couldn’t bend my leg. So I took some more Advil and headed back to bed. As the day went on, my knee has limbered up and all of my other muscles have started to hurt! I will be able to go to the gym tomorrow, but we’ll see about the jogging. I still came out okay in the end, because according to My Fitness Pal, I still have 200 calories to “spend” today, which is about what I would have burned at the gym!
No other fabulous insights from today, but I would love some advice. On Wednesdays, my work schedule does not allow a lunch break until 1:30. Since I usually have my breakfast around 7:30, that’s a loooooong time to go before lunch. I have students non-stop from 9:00-1:30, so I need some healthy options that take virtually no time to eat (instead of my crackers, candy, etc. that I’m usually turning to). Any suggestions?
