Thanks so much for all the kind words on my Abandoning the Scale Post yesterday. You never cease to amaze me with your enthusiasm and encouragement!
Hot damn it’s been a rough day. Well, more than a day. Call me a girl, call me emotional, but let’s just say I’ve been a crier, and I ain’t ashamed of it. These times come and go…But first…
Breakfast. At 5.15am. I had an early and long day today. Lots of fuel to fill me and keep me energized. You know, the typical.
And this is where I spent most of the morning. Plus a pb and j sandwich 6 hours after breakfast. You can bet I was hangry after all the hiking!
I got home late in the afternoon and headed straight over to my counselors where I let loose on all my current frustrations. What’s on my mind? My Ankle. And it’s pain that’s keeping me from running.
I have been insanely afraid this was going to happen. Except this time I’m way more frustrated than I was before, because this time, I DID EVERYTHING RIGHT! Last time I was undernourished, over trained and in a very bad place. This time, I stretched, I iced, I massaged, I rolled, I ate, I relaxed, I did things other than running. And this happens. I finally hit a new PDR and I end up with: Peroneal Tendonitis. Yep, my tendon from my calf to my arch is currently inflamed and pissed off at the world, just like me at it.
I’m trying to keep a positive attitude and rationalizing that my race is still 52 days away. I have time to heal, and unlike my blog title of trying to heal, I WILL. I just hate that this time I tried so hard to do it right, and well, now I’m sitting like the above picture. Boo.
I had no idea what to have for dinner, so smorgous board it was: roasted potatoes, spaghetti squash with marinara, spinach, broccoli and tempeh.
And to heal via icing from the inside out I had a new non-dairy ice cream in the flavor of, oh yeah, CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER.
Thank You Turtle Mountain for making one of the best tasting non diary ice creams on the face of this planet. No joke. I may have added some attune Chocolate Munch to the bottom before adding the ice cream in. Pity party for one here. I’m following in Janae’s footsteps with the ice cream…cause it heals. We swear it does.
A few pieces of liquorice and maybe another spoonful of the ice cream and I’m ready for bed. One more day till the weekend, but it might as well be Monday I still have so much to do…oiy.
Giveaway coming very soon!!!
