I did the elliptical this morning!!! 35 minutes of sweaty heaven with no knee pain! I am a happy girl. And after that it was an intense 75 minutes of power yoga, I was sweaty!
Before the gym though this was a fun breakfast
Carrot cake oatmeal! It has oats, vanilla soy milk, carrot pieces, walnuts, brown sugar, and cinnamon. I got it off of Tina’s Carrots n Cake blog, which I am obsessed with. I need to learn how to put links to blogs, all of this stuff is tricky.
After the gym I came home and made myself a shake of espresso, a banana, chocolate vitamin powder, and vanilla soy milk. It was tasty!
Now I am snacking on a lunch of a wheat wrap with pork, goat cheese and lettuce, and some cherries and more soy milk.
I have work tonight 2 to close, and then have to work tomorrow morning 6-2. yippie! oh well I need this paycheck. and then hopefully some back to school shopping, enjoy the rest of your saturday!

Dinner = SUSHI! yum yummm it has been way too long
did a body pump class tonight… first one ever! It was fun, but I used too light of a weight. relaxing tonight and then power yoga in the morning! Yay for finding other ways to get out of my work out stress… MRI results should be in next week!
Hello! I just returned from a visit to the cape, which is part of the reason why I have been so MIA. I was visiting my best friend in Eastham, and along the way I stopped for dinner at my old roommates house and saw her family! It was a great trip. And it also somehow turned into a sample of every ice coffee made in New England basically.
I had read about Marylou’s coffee in another blog and I just had to find one to try it! On the way there I got peanut butter wonderful and on the way back I had copa banana. Preferred the banana one much more! I am a sucker for bananas.
The Cape was beautiful and so relaxing! Just what I needed to get my mind over my knee injury.
So I have been resting it for almost two weeks now. This means no running, biking, elliptical, nothing. I have been weight training and doing some leg strengthening exercises, but nothing that makes it hurt.
Today I saw an orthopedic surgeon and I am finally getting an MRI on it tomorrow!!! 🙂 maybe now I can finally figure out what is wrong with it.
1. Upper body weights
2. Lower body weights, (successfully did squats, but no lunges)
3 . Ab workout
4. Walked the dog
I was sweating and happy! Off to do errands and ice the knee, enjoy the afternoon!
