Last night my lovely boyfriend Michael took very good care of me! The second I got home, I got in my jammies, elevated my ankle and iced it. Michael is a wonderful caretaker. When I’m sick or hurt he always takes care of me. He fixed dinner: left over steak grilled up, potatoes and onions and a spinach salad. He refused to let me help and insisted I sit down the whole time. 🙂 And later I found out HE was even injured as well! He pulled his hamstrings (pretty badly) on his last bike commute. Poor guy. 😦
I woke up this morning and my ankle felt so much better! Maybe all it needed was a little rest and ice. I’m still going to the doctor this afternoon to make sure it’s okay. I want it to be healed enough to go for a hike this weekend!
Breakfast this morning was Cream of Wheat. Snack will be a banana and I have a grapefruit for this afternoon.
Fun tidbit: A coworker who is running the Portland Marathon this year told me something amazing! Apparently if you run and finished the San Francisco Marathon, you get a pedicure AND a necklace from Tiffany’s! Wow!
I wanted to share something that happened recently and was really puzzling! I had my snacks on my desk (apple and an orange) and a coworker asked me if I was on a diet. I said not really and asked “Why?” slightly confused. He said that he noticed my apple and orange on my desk. I was left feeling completely baffled as to why eating fruit would mean I was on a diet. Do people really assume diets = fruits and veggies?
QUESTION: Even when you’re not “watching your weight” or actively trying to lose weight, are fruits and veggies part of your regular day??
