Takin' It Easy

Yesterday was suppose to be my easy day, a 2 mile run.  I tried using an ankle brace.  Wanted to see if that would help.  Well, it didn't.  I think it actually bothered me more than my actual leg pain.  I ended up only running 1 measly mile.  What a bummer.

Then the husband called me at work this morning.  He called my doctor and scheduled an appointment for Monday.  He said we were going to find out what was going on.  He told the receptionist that he was coming to the appointment with me and we were going to get to the bottom of this!  Oh my, I can hardly wait for this appointment.  The doctor has no idea what he has in store for him dealing with the husband!

Today is my off day.  The leg has been sore all day.  Tomorrow is suppose to be my long run day but we won't be home.  I'm waiting till Sunday evening to run it.  Hoping my leg will feel better after a few days rest. We'll see.

In other news, I wanted to share a few websites I've found very helpful.  First one is MyFitnessPal.  I totally love this free site.  I use it to count my calories daily. You can access it online or via an IPhone.  My weight has been coming off using this program.  Of course, I'm very strict about remaining in my calorie range.  It's a great tool.

Another site is Eating Well.  They provide all kinds of healthy recipes.  I subscribe to their newsletter.  Right now, they have healthy recipes for homemade ice cream.  Yummy!  I don't know about you, but I'm always looking for a recipe that has a few less calories.

Are there any healthy websites you use on a regular basis?  Let me know about them.


  1. Hugs to you darlin'! Do NOT let this get you down. Do what the doctor says and your leg will heal. When it's fully healed THEN you can start training. If you don't do what he says it's never going to get better. I know that ain't what you want to hear. Listen to The don't want to wind up having surgery like him do you? Although I'll bet if you asked him, he wouldn'tve done anything different. On second thought, don't think about him at all..........LOL!

  2. Thought you might find this intriguing.
    This info came via a newsletter I get and when going to Amazon there is a long description at the bottom of what it's about, thought you might find it interesting. Here's the Amazon link:

  3. OK that didn't show up so you could easily click on it so I'll try a copy/paste from the newsletter:
