Oh, the life of a food journal blogger. We’re a “special” bunch! 😉
Do you have any idea how many photos of my oatmeal I’ve taken in the past three years? It must be tens of thousands. Seriously. I only put 2-5 photos of my breakfast on my blog each morning, but just think about how many deleted photos never make it onto CNC.
This morning, for instance, I snapped nine photos of my oatmeal. The two that I picked for my blog are below.
Here are the “deleted” photos:
I’ve actually gotten quite a bit better with the number of photos that I take of each meal. I used to take closer to 20-25 photos, but I’ve streamedlined the process over time. 😉
If you missed Saturday morning’s post, I’m currently dealing with a bum foot. 😕 Last night, I iced it and then used the Tiger Tail on my calf and shin, and then rolled the Tune Up Balls on my foot. My foot is better today, but still far from 100%.
Thankfully, I have a wonderful Team In Training coach and she sent me an amended workout schedule for this week. I changed it around a little bit, but it’s a much more foot-friendly that the regular TNT training plan:
- Monday: Day off
- Tuesday: Elliptical – hard for 4 minutes then easy for 4 minutes for 60 minutes
- Wednesday: Spin class
- Thursday: Elliptical – 60 min easy/moderate pace
- Friday: Body Pump
- Saturday: 20 miler (or broken 20 miler with elliptical at gym)
If I’m well and fine come Saturday morning, I’ll run 20 miles with my team. If my foot starts acting up, I’ll run part of the route and finish the 20 miles on the elliptical at the gym. It’s not how I want to do my 20-miler, but it’s better than the alternative, which is getting hurt and not running the marathon at all. I’d rather be safe than sorry. I’ve come WAY too far not to run this thing!
Question of the Day
Have you ever changed your workouts to deal with an injury? Was your experience positive or negative? Any advice for those of us dealing with injuries?
