I took a Tylenol PM last night both for the back and the pain at the Broncos loss last night. 😡 I slept really well for almost 8 hours (go me!!). Opened my eyes and took inventory:
Sore legs? check
Sore butt? check
Sore arms, sides and chest? Check, check, and check.
My back injury actually felt pretty much gone, just a tiny twinge. I was slow getting out of bed and John commented on how weird it was to see me moving so slow. I guess it does happen on occasion LOL!
Only went for a walk today as I decided to let my body rest up since I have NROLW on Wednesday to do. I also decided to stock up on protein for repair.
Protein pancakes for breakfast!
Along with cafe au lait (I use 1 cup of milk to make 2 drinks for breakfast).
Without a workout, I got right down to typing and worked steadily. Sometimes I can get distracted by things, and I had some trouble focusing today watching my squirrel buddy right outside my window.
Pixie was really enamored of him, too! She chatters, which is so funny!
I made a fabulous protein packed superfood lunch!
- 1 container of french vanilla Oikos
- 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1/2 cup pumpkin
- cranberry sauce
- 1 packet of teddy grahams (into the pool!)
It was so delicious.
John made lattes and brought me a little treat with it.
Candy corn kisses! These actually remind me more of a canned frosting than candy corn, but I love the look of them. Another thing hidden up high. I should take a picture of what is hidden away from me – it is quite a lot of stuff LOL.
Took a walk before dinner. It feels so funny just to walk. I hardly ever do that anymore since I normally run or bike. I kept catching myself wanting to start jogging. Come on Lori – gotta relax!!
Dinner was more protein in the form of chicken. I brushed some mustard on the chicken breast and coated it with almond meal and sauteed in a pan.
Super tasty, although the coating fell off. Yummy. And roasted brussel sprouts for a change.
Done with work, so that means the evening is free for something, although not sure what yet 😀
Tomorrow we are going to attempt a morning ride to bagels. Upper 30s, so at least it will be above freezing!
Question: What is your favorite way to get protein?
