Breakfast was the usual, oats with rice milk, nuts & honey.
Work was busy today, to the point that I missed morning tea. Now that NEVER happens! I was doing well with the Pepsi Max thing, but then my boss went to get everyone morning tea as a congrats for an award we won last week. Because I am being good and said no to the donuts on offer, he bought me a 600ml Diet Coke. But hey, it's better than a dount.
Lunch was Cruskits with cottage cheese followed by blueberries & a banana with vanilla yogurt - which is my 2 servings of fruit.
Afternoon tea, which I don't always have, was my morning tea, 2 Salada Lites with cheese.
Since I didn't have the bike I had to walk home. Ross has gone to a friends for dinner and was going to his Mums for a while first so I was on my own. It is about a 35 minute walk. I took off and my ankle was feeling okay. After 5 minutes it was hurting. Not good. I changed footpaths and it felt ok again. The path I was walking on was sloping to the right, and the slope was enough to cause some pain in my foot. By the time I got to the park, although it was still a little sore, I decided I could try running.
Note to self - running with a backpack loose on your bag is awful...
I lasted 30 seconds. It was swishing from side to side and banging against my back. So I tightened the arm straps and pulled out the tummy strap and did it up tight. Next run, only 60 seconds before I started to feel pulling down my left hamstring. Third run, 60 seconds before I felt it in my ankle. Time to stop. But, I gave it a shot. I stuck to my exercise contract (thank you Em and Swayerm for co-signing it) and now I feel good that I did my best.
So now I know, the ankle is related to the hamstring and hip issues which is related to my back. At least I now have a fix. I will see the Chiropractor again soon.
I got home and ate a vegemite sandwich
With my foot up with my makeshift ice pack while I watched the days highlights of the Tour Down Under.
After the Tour it was time to find something to eat. It was just me so I wanted something quick. I looked in the fridge. Tofu and lots of green veggies (I seem to have eaten all the other coloured veggies). OK, tofu and veg stirfry.
To the tofu I added garlic, spring onion, spinach, bok choy, capsicum, broccoli, snow peas and mushrooms, and mixed in some oregano, parsley & hoi sin sauce. I was planning on serving it with rice noodles, until I saw it all together and realised how much I had cut up. So I just had it as is and it was delicious! And incredibly filling. Calories for today are spot on.
Tomorrow is my last day of work for the week. YAY!
