Today was my last appointment with my Physical Therapist. Boo. I am happy that I am ready to run again, but sad to stop working with her. She definitely someone I would be friends with in real life 🙂
But- my running is not the only reason I won’t be working with her anymore. She’s moving back home to Canada!!! It was very fun to talk with her about moving and Vegas and other stuff. Thank you Lisanne!!!
Healing my Knee Plan going forward:
- continue my hip strengthening exercises 5 days a week
- build up mileage slowly and cut back if my knee hurts
- ice if I have pain
- go back to PT if I have a big set back
After Ben got home from work we took a short walk. I wanted him to take a picture of us, but he refused to stop walking so this pic is an action shot of sorts…
Today’s eats where great until dinner time. I have decided the random snacks I eat that never make it to the blog are my biggest downfall (this includes nighttime eating). So today I vowed to not eat anything outside of Breakfast, Lunch, Afternoon Snack and Dinner.
I had my afternoon snack around 4pm and that was my only non-meal eats today!
Well, for dinner all I wanted was snacky foods! My cravings were determined to snack! I ended up eating popcorn, half a granola bar, a piece of bread…
and a huge smoothie with chocolate syrup and Cheerios.
I guess snacking is a compulsive habit that I didn’t get out of my system during the day like I normally do. Wow. This really taught me a lot about how deep of a habit the snacking is and since I’ve been doing it for so long my body really reacts weird when I stop. Pondering this will continue, but I’ll spare you anymore.
Good luck with healing your knee!!

Cute pic of you and Ben! I really examined my snacking this week and I snack in waves – it’s completely a habit – one that I’m about to break!
Congratulations on being able to run again. Sounds like a sensible plan to get back into it.
Snacking is my downfall too. Mostly at night. It is very much a habit.
That smoothie looks amazing!
Like Kellie said – maybe your body needs more calories and that is why you are snacking…
mmmm chocolate syrup & smoothie combo- delish!
Maybe snacking is what your body needs. I heard that snacking (as long as nutritious) throughout the day is the best way to eat. That way your metabolism is always working.
