Getting By...

Last night, I took it easy on my knee. I tried to stay off of it as much as possible. I've been icing it and keeping it elevated. It's just so hard, because it's so cold outside and the ice makes me freezing. When I ice, I'm bundled in so many layers (except my leg) and I have a blanket on too. I get cold so easy. Oh well, I want to get better and will do anything it takes. I'm even taking NSAIDs (I never take pills).

Tonight, the hubs helped me make dinner. We had BBQ chicken (from a chicken I cooked in the crock pot over the weekend), mashed potatoes and green beans.

I eat some sweets at night. It seems when I can't run, I don't care as much about what I eat. When I'm running, I'm a lot more careful about what I put in my body. Strange, I know. If you read my blog, you can tell that I'm anything but normal.

We'll see how my knee and foot hold up for my next 5k (at least I hope it's only a 5k) this Saturday. If I feel the same as I do now (which is ok), I will see how far I can run on the treadmill on Monday (next week). I hope I can at least get a few miles in here and there. I can't wait to get running again. I know I'll have to start at a lower mileage than I was, but at least it will be something!


  1. I'm the same when it comes to eating. When I run I eat way better. No run = eating m&m's and soda. Not good.

    I hope your knee and foot heel quickly. Sounds like you're doing everything right!

  2. I am the same way. When I don't run I go on a candy binge. When I'm running, I am much more careful about what I eat.

  3. Ughh good luck with that knee! Did you get your package from sof sole??

  4. I'm the same way with exercise/diet.... if I don't run, I am much more frivolous with my eating habits! I hope the ice, rest and NSAIDs get you on the road (treadmill) again soon!

  5. Stay warm with all that ice! I hope the knee holds up!

  6. Girl I totally understand!! I am so sorry about your knee. When I am not running I eat pure crap...maybe it's because I get depressed or something. Stay warm, I hate being cold but all the icing will be worth it.
