Well, while I thought my knee was doing semi “ok” it has flared up in a maaaaajor way this morning, almost to the point where I couldn’t finish spin class. I have bitten the bullet, and am going to the doctor (Physical Therapist) today to have him look at it…so wish me luck! I am hoping beyond all hopes that it is not something that requires me to take “time off” because working out = Tyler’s paycheck (or lack there of). 😦 We shall see. On to more inspiring news…such as the mini clif I inhaled at crack thirty in preparation for 5:45am spin.
Headed to spin, felt fine for the first 40 minutes or so, then the knee began killlllllling me. It is the only time I have ever been counting down the minutes until class was over. Depressing, blah. Theres no swelling, and the pain is below the left knee…but it feels like it is deep inside. I can only describe it like a piercing feeling that just jabs harder when I put pressure on the foot, go up or down stairs, or do the pedaling motion in spin class. Sad times indeed. Hopefully the Doc can tell me what is going on later.
Came home and prepared a breakfast that made me almost completely forget my knee pain. Yep, it was that yummy. Started with the Millet-lovin’
Then made a nice bath for it to swim in, pre-pan.
Soaked the bread in the egg mixture, and then put those babies in the pan! (forgot to add the massive amounts of flax seed to the above picture. )
While the French Toast browned on both sides, I chopped up some strawberries and a huge mango:
Also heated up the STAR ingredient in the microwave…
Ashlie gave me this bad boy last night in class, and I could not wait to use it (obv. 😉 ) It is so fun to finally meet a blogger. Crazy that we lived so close. We are already planning Tampa trips (your coming too, Krucker and Emily) and visits to Earth Fare!!! She also has a VitaMix that we get to play with! I am so stoked! Back to the toast. 🙂 I browned it up, and smeared the heated coconut butter on top. Are you drooling yet??? Because I am, and I have already EATEN it.
Dear. Sweet. Big Bird. This was amazinggggggg! I have to get a big jar of that coconut butter, stat. Hurry up and get back from Florida, Ashlie…we have some trips that need to occur. 😉 Sad times followed when I realized my mini jar was already gone!
I’m tempted to do the world’s smallest “Oat’s In A Jar” with this. haha
Also, Sam was craving a mango.
And yes, he got it.
Ahh, to live the lives of dogs. Look at them!
On that note, it is time for lunch. I am meeting my dad at one of my favorite Mexican places, Salsaritas! I refer to it as a “Mexican Subway” because it is basically a build your own burrito joint. Totally yummy. Check it out, here.
