First off, I want to say Happy Birthday to my wonderful Daddy!! 😀 I’ve done a previous dedication post on Father’s Day, but I want to say I love you and thank you for all you’ve done for us 🙂
One of my favorite things every is the “kissy face” my dad does in pictures. Trying to be a 13-year old girl at heart, Dad? 😉
Love you mucho.
Eats have been typically unexciting, especially since I have no cam cam. 😦 But yesterday morning, I did enjoy a delicious spelt maple pecan scone. Wow.
I ate half of it (aka the frosted top portion 😉 ) before completing some strength training and heading to a sports medicine doc appointment for my knee (I’ve lost count as to what number appointment this was).
I really liked this doctor. Right away she watched the way I stood and inspected my orthotics and shoes. She seemed much more concerned and knowledgeable about my problem, and seems very determined to help me get to the bottom of the pain. I had another x-ray done, and am scheduled to get a second, more powerful MRI done halfway down my tibia bone. I guess last MRI was only taken of the actual knee, and she’s curious about the pain at the top of my tibia. I’ll keep you all posted.
It’s extremely hard to find motivation to head to the gym at home since our gym is a good 15 minute drive away. So today, I ran/walked .8 miles with my mom to the track at the nearby middle school where I did 2.5 miles track running. Then walked .8 miles back home. It felt good!!
Pre-run was 1/2 of my mom’s toast with PB:
Post-run was a giant fuji apple and one of my new cereals!
A few weeks ago, I won 2 Nature’s Path giveaway, so I had one box mailed home so I would have cereals when I came home, and to share with my family. I was excited to try out this new Vanilla Sunrise flavor!
With yogurt and a banana.
Unfortunately, I was disappointed. It wasn’t bad, just slightly bland and had a weird overall taste in my opinion. Definitely not one of their best flavors.
In other news –
In my weekly quotes email last week, there was a quote from someone with a letter to themselves:
I promise you that I will help you whenever you are troubled.
I will do everything in my power to make things better for you.
I promise you that I will be there for you whenever you need me.
I will help care for you and keep you healthy.
I promise you that I will get up everyday with a positive outlook, with my chin up and I’ll never deprive you of hope.
I promise that I will love and respect you and never take you for granted.
I will remind you each day that you are a child of God, that there is a purpose for your life and will spend my life helping you discover that purpose.
I promise that I will listen to you when you need someone to talk to, I will not pass judgement or condemn you for mistakes you make.
I promise that I will always forgive you and I! will not let past problems overshadow our relationship.
I promise that I will be a true friend to you and love you always, no matter what.
All right, I’m off to whittle my middle, then head to pick up my dad a birthday burrito lunch. Hopefully he hasn’t eaten yet!
