tell me, "I told you so." Turns out that after 40 consecutive days of running, my knees had something to say about the matter. :(
I've been taking it easy lately, and after some days off, only lacing up my shoes every other day for the past few weeks. Still happy to be out there, albeit slower and shorter these days, happier that it's not as freakishly hot outside, and hoping my once-in-awhile knee twinge doesn't turn into an injury.
The H is heading to Vegas for work this week, leaving me and the little guy to eat gluten to our hearts' content. He gets such a kick out of the fact that he can eat "glooten AND glooten-free!" Here's our meal plan for the week:
Sunday lunch - chicken burgers with blackened peppers and onions, corn on the cob, melon
Sunday dinner - broccoli/cheddar/Canadian bacon quiche (my favorite combination so far) with pancakes. My pancakes are never straight-up batter. These were gluten free with blueberries, pumpkin, hemp seed, and almondmilk. Fantastic. :)
Monday - asparagus-gruyere ravioli (a Costco impulse buy) and my own homegrown zucchini
Tuesday - quinoa burgers on mixed greens
Wednesday - chicken sausage, corn on the cob, and co-op pickup night
Thursday - pizza or local beef burgers (depends on the temperature!)
Friday - my Mom's birthday dinner, with family
I made a triple batch of steel cut oats for breakfasts this week (I eat toast with peanut butter on mornings I run), and I'll boil a dozen eggs for snacking once they age a bit more. Lunches will be leftovers, PBJ, and my favorite shrimp noodles. Have a great week!
