Man googles can do some scary things to those eyes of mine! That and the swim cap lol. Started off my morning with a 25 lap swim. Okay, so I considered one side to the pool one lap, but it is both sides of the pool (50yards) that equal a lap. A mile is 35 yards, my goal was to get to this today, but my arms tuckered out on me after 40 minutes. Once I am able to use my other ankle to help kick, I bet it will be a little easier. Later on this afternoon I picked up a new swim suit at, Nike on clearance for 19 bucks! I have a two peice Nike one now that I have been wearing, but the neck tie kills my neck. I figured I might be spending more time in the pool, so I might as well make myself comfortable.
My ankle/heel seems to feel a little better today. I can almost walk 100% normal with no pain. Every once in a while I can fill a slight pull. I am still commiting to NO RUNNING until after next week. I might try to add in some elliptical work later on next week, depending on how it feels. I have noticed that the longer I am on my feet, it does start to get stiff. I have been a icing queen.
After my short shopping sphree , I found a quick cucumber salad recipe to make to use up all these loads of cucumbers we have in our fridge.
Slice 4 Large Cucumbers
Slice 1 medium onion
Put cucumbers/onion in medium sized bowl
Bring to a boil 3/4 cup splenda and 1 cup white vinegar
Pour over cucumbers/onions and top with 1 tablespoon dill
Ever since I was little I loved vinegar, so any recipe using vinegar in it will please me. My fav chips are salt and vinegar.
After making something healthy, I switched to the other side and made a batch of chocolate chip oatmeal cookies for the man and his boss...of course not homemade from the box :)
Sadly, tomorrow is my last official Friday of the summer. This time next week I will be heading to bed early for a return to work. I can't believe how fast the summer really went!!
What is your favorite healthy/non healthy combination of food?
I love greasy pizza with a big healthy salad full of fruit or even a chicken salad with a side of a Dairy Queen Blizzard!
