Weight loss efforts are still going strong (they better be I’m only a few days in, right?!?!). Gym – yes, 10k steps – yes, food journal – yes.
Now that I’m being careful about food I had to think hard about what I wanted in my wrap yesterday. I made four wraps (yes I eat a lot) and started with tofu for my protein. Of course I added a bunch of fresh veggies like cucumbers, lettuce, green onion, avocado. I needed a bit of sauce so I went with a small squirt of mustard on each wrap. Now the piece de resistance of my sandwiches, wraps, or subs is ….
Pickles are awesome. They pack so much flavour
I’m also working on hydration. My campus classrooms are always freezing so I grabbed a hot peppermint tea to kill two birds with one stone.
In all of this weight loss talk I realized that I haven’t updated you on my physical therapy this week.
First, is a bit of a bummer – a new injury . It’s on the inside of my left knee. For the life of me I can’t remember what the injury is called (my doctor always tells me the names and then shows me diagrams of the body parts, etc.) but basically I have a fluid build up in that area.
The injury is from over training. I didn’t take enough rest time between workouts last week. On Saturday Brad and I trained pretty hard on our lower bodies and then went to the pool on Sunday. I’m not a great swimmer so I can only do breast stroke which involves the whip kick. It was doing laps with the whip kick that really over stressed the knee.
It doesn’t really set me back any. This week’s training plan is just a little lighter on the legs. (More cardio, abs, and upper body!)
Second, is much more exciting. I’m in my second week of run training. We spent most of the time doing drills for proper foot striking. Man, I had no idea how technical running can be. I guess that’s why it’s so easy to get injured with bad form.
Pickles for you?
Ever done running drills?
