95% is Better Than Nothing

Today I woke up this morning feeling much better. My hip feels about 90-95% better. No pain today so far. It feels a little tight and stiff. Last night I did my Foam Roller and used Icy Hot. I also iced my hip/butt/leg a few times last night. I took some Advil first thing this morning. My hope is that these rest days will help heal my issue. Tomorrow the plan is to swim instead of run or use the gym. I think doing so many stairs all of a sudden lead to a pulled muscle. 😦 Thank you for the tips, everyone!

Dinner was exceptional last night. On the way home, I stopped by my favorite local farm produce store. I got some potatoes, peaches, apples, bananas, and two corns!

Michael sliced up the potatoes to cook in the skillet. The first step is to boil them in water.

Michael’s really good with the skillet. If I tried this move, the food would be on the floor!

I love when Michael prepares these potatoes. He added rosemary to them and sliced onions.

I prefer my onions cooked down to almost nothing instead of eating them raw.

I made a salad with all the fixings. Lettuce, Spinach, cauliflower, yellow and orange peppers, Craisins, croutons, broccoli, carrots, cabbage. So good!

We were so hungry we ate the salads while we were cooking the rest of the food. Oil and Balsamic Vinaigrette as dressing.

Michael blackened the salmon and seared it in the skillet while the potatoes were cooking.

I’ve previously posted the recipe for Michael’s Blackening Spice Here. It’s excellent and you can make it as spicy or as mild as you want it.

I topped the potatoes with a little shredded cheese and sour cream.

I also cut my salmon in half and saved half of it for lunch.

Dinner was absolutely fantastic! The perfect amount of food for me. Even with some M&M’s for dessert I came out ahead of my calories.

On another note, my blog is 213 hits away from having 20,000 visitors since I started in February! What a cool thing! Thank you to all my readers who like to read what I write. 😉 Feel free to spread the word!

Today is my “Friday”. YAY!!! I have the next few days off for a mini-vacation. Partly because my brother and sister-in-law are visiting from Philly. I’m excited to see them!

QUESTION: Do you do yoga or stretching on “Rest Days”? Or just “rest”?

  1. Personally, I love to stretch on rest days. Although, sometimes, I think you just need to do nothing.
