Sometimes I have to start my post by whining a little. I just have to say that my ankle hurts. I’m sure that the hour of Zumba I did this morning didn’t help it, but what am I supposed to do? I took a week off from workouts earlier this month, and it didn’t feel better. If it’s going to hurt regardless, I figured I should at least burn some calories.
I’ve been icing it, and I’ll stick to the elliptical tomorrow which doesn’t seem to aggravate it as much. I’m not sure what to do to make the dull and constant pain go away, but it’s not horrible so I’ll stop whining for now.
This week has already presented some health challenges, and I’m trying to conquer them one at a time. It’s going to be harder this week because I’m going to several Superbowl events including ESPN Nation, VH1 Concert Series and some CNN events. We also plan to spend Sunday at the Superdome so I’ll pack some Pellegrino to refrain from drinking
beer empty calories.
I’ve cooked several meals at home this week, and I have really enjoyed eating healthy and delicious foods. It’s satisfying to make something delicious and enjoyable, and knowing that it won’t keep me from reaching my goals makes it even better.
I made a salad loaded with greens, bean sprouts and baked tilapia.
Clint said my bbq shredded chicken was awesome, and I have to agree.
I made 100-calorie crepes with Greek yogurt and fresh berries before the parade with Matt and Shannon Sunday. This is one of my favorite meals, but I don’t make it often.
When I wake up I plan to put a beef roast in the slow cooker. I will load it up with onions, garlic and Lipton onion soup mix, and it will be ready by the time I’m done with class.
What are you cooking this week?
