legcramps - Friday May 31, 2013

Weight: 167.5

The banquet I attended last evening was quite nice, with turkey as the main course. I took only a small amount of the meat, and loaded my plate with salad. I also ate very slowly, as I was in deep conversation with a co-worker who has since retired. It was wonderful to catch up with her! And since I wasn't scarfing down food at the speed of light, I ate until I was pleasantly full (not painfully full) and even skipped the cake they had at the end.

I did get out on the golf course on Wednesday as well, which was nice because I thought it might rain on us. Never did!

What with golfing on Wednesday and wearing slight wedge heels yesterday, my knee was quite sore overnight; I woke up a few times with a throbbing pain on the inside of my knee, right where the initial tear was. I am trying to ignore it because i'm sure I have a low tolerance for pain, but will ice it after work today. However, i'm feeling pretty sorry for myself and so disappointed in the way i've responded to this whole process of surgery and recovery. Life happens, and it's the way we react to the things that happen that determines how well we live. I'm afraid I haven't been fairing too well in this regard and that makes me feel like I haven't learned as much in the last few years as I thought. I need to take a step back, relax, and start to take things as they come instead of always expecting so much of myself.

It's our local baseball team's home opener tonight and I scored myself a free ticket to the game, so i'll be sitting on the sidelines with a cozy blanket taking in the sights, sounds, and smells of a local, small town baseball game. I'll be able to avoid the dogs and burgers, but imagine I will bend to the call of the beer tent ;)

Thank goodness we are always able to see the positive in things, even when they seem at their worst! Have a truly awesome weekend everyone!

Finally, a break in the weather! I can see the SUN!

If it dries up enough, i'll be getting a round of golf in after work. If it doesn't dry up enough, i'll be laying on the couch sobbing underneath my favorite quilt. Huh.

I had steamed green beans and a burger for dinner, turkey sandwich for lunch, and coffee and crackers in the morning yesterday. Last night I munched on crackers and cheese. Lots of water.

I have no plan for my meals today (or for the rest of the week) and i'm really, really hoping I can stick to staying mainly healthy until I pre-cook some meals on the weekend. I was really just too lazy to get this done last weekend. Tomorrow night's banquet will be my biggest test.

Did you know the grass I cut on the weekend has already grown to its original length before the cuttage occurred? I wish my hair grew that fast.

Umpqua on 05/29/2013:
Yummy foods, and hopefully the banquet will have enough variety that you can keep it healthy!

Green onions in cottage cheese ? Now I've heard it all. I wish MY hair grew as fast as your grass !

V on 05/29/2013:
Well I am sure your neighbors appreciated you mowing the lawn..If I recall correctly they were not pleased about the lawn this time last year, LOL fawk em!! Seriously hope that you got the chance to golf today my friend <3

I was able to get into the clinic for a depo shot yesterday *sigh of relief*, so i'm feeling much better and am able to continue working.

Last night I was layed up with my heating pad most of the night and missed the Star Trek 3D movie that was showing in town. Not terribly sad about that though; I was never a fan.

I highly doubt that i'll get too much accomplished today; it's been steadily raining since yesterday so any yardwork I wanted to do has been postponed to sunnier days. This week is not turning out the way I expected it to, so if it's nice on the weekend i'll have a lot of catching up to do what with all the golf i'm missing out on

My eating yesterday was not good; my control flies out the window when i'm not feeling my best and yesterday was no exception. I did not, however, succombe to the desire for ice cream. This is no small accomplishment!

Also, the coffee is much less strong today, so i'm not vibrating all over. I was so 'caffeinated' yesterday I felt like I could have run a marathon. Of course, after 1/4 mile I would've changed my mind.

grannyannie on 05/28/2013:
Hope you feel better. Yea, it's hard not to indulge when we feel bad. My resistance often goes out the window when I'm sick.

thenewMLE on 05/28/2013:
Maybe a nice weekend will be your cure all! I was telling Annie that I found a no sugar added ice cream from Blue Bell that is really good. I just do a small scoop when I need a treat every once in a while. I'm down to one cup of coffee a day! But we drink it REAL strong down here. My grandma always said if it looked like tea instead of oil, you should just drink the damn tea!! hahaha Have a great day!

legcramps on 05/28/2013:
LOL, that's hilarious! Thanks for the laugh :)

Umpqua on 05/28/2013:
Avoiding ice cream is a major accomplishment in my book. Hope you get to feeling better.

V on 05/28/2013:
That is great that you were able to get the shot so quick!! I am sure you are breathing a huge sigh of relief..Have a good evening <3

supercheese on 05/28/2013:
What do you think of the depo shot? I need to find a bc that works good......

I made it to my second consecutive TOM before deciding that I need to pull the plug on this sh&t. Just waiting to see if I can get a shot today; if not, sitting here and squirming in my seat all day at work does not sound like fun so I guess i'll head home and squirm there. Damn Skippy. It was a struggle to get ready for work this morning and I still look like a train wreck even through I gave it my best effort!

The positive is that even though I feel like crap i'm still in a pretty good mood. I guess three cups of incredibly strong coffee will do that to a person. For awhile anyways.

Back to the Depo shot huh? I don't blame you.. Happy to hear that TOM didn't effect your mood..Have a good evening my friend :)

Holy DOMS, Batman. Those 18 holes of golf yesterday are catching up to me.

But they were 18 fairly well-played holes, given the fact that it was my first 18 holes of the season. Not bad, legcramps, not bad at all. Call me Tiger.

And by now I understand that golfing is not entirely the best thing for my knee. The constant twisting and tension i'm putting it through (I put far more pressure on that leg when I swing - it's the only way I get a hip turn) is going to bite me in the ass later on i'm sure. It's pretty sore today. When I say "pretty sore" I really mean to say something that involves a whole lot more swear words.

C'est la vie?

Still better than playing ball, in my humble opinion.

And since golfing 18 holes took four hours, I didn't do much once I got home. I remember eating something, my leftover rice, quinoa and chicken; and I remember checking facebook. After that, it's all a blur of pure exhaustion. Awesomesauce. Need more days like this!

So. Wanna golf with me after work today???

grannyannie on 05/24/2013:
Well done on the golf! Hope your knee doesn't suffer too much. Have a good weekend.

OhioRaven on 05/24/2013:

I would like to come with you but I haven't golfed since college. Let's play disc golf some time - it may be less stress on your knee ;)

V on 05/24/2013:
I would love to come, how about Sunday??? We can paint the town RED and kiss all the single boys in town ;) LOL Love you girl, be kind to your knee, it's the only ones ya have <3

Golfing and backs and knees, yikes! I like to golf 9 holes only - but don't anymore. Would rather be on my bike - good for my back and knee! Hey - that sounded like a commercial for biking - unintentionally! Have a great weekend!

ohhh I feel ya! I am loving these few days off with little plans and much needed relaxation! it's amazing how much better I feel...and how much I wish I had a few more days with no plans. maybe if I had two weeks off in a row, my skin would look amazing, it's already getting a little better in just 3 days!! I think I may experiment with quinoa today.

I'm in much better spirits than I was yesterday... I guess lounging on the couch all night will do that to a person.  

So even though I didn't accomplish much after the workday, my knee feels better for all the resting I did, and that puts me in a better mood.

Plus i'm golfing after work today, so that helps too.

I made another batch of rice and quinoa, and baked chicken breasts for a little extra protein because I thought maybe my robotic moves yesterday were due to a dive in nutrients. I'm going to try adding some cooked peas to this dish for dinner tonight, because eating peas always makes me happier. I am not entirely sure why, but i'll take it!

I am tempted to do 18 holes today instead of my regular 9; I hope my knee will cooperate with this grand plan, because I need the extra exercise another 9 holes would give me. I walked up the stairs this morning to check out the outfit I picked for work (LOL, blue sneakers, grey pants, orange top, brown cardigan, I ROCK) and was out of breath when I reached the top. That. Is. Totally. Not. Awesome. At. All.

P.S. Criminal Minds Finale? Made me cry.

RE your comment, I wish i could just NOT work any overtime anymore. it's really screwing with me physically and I feel that I cannot workout as well. stupid overtime!!!

glad to hear you are in good spirits...have fun playing golf!!! by for now....before coworker catches me!

I managed to get out on the golf course twice over the weekend; i'd like to go today (it's gorgeous outside) but my knee is bothering me a bit so i'm not sure I should venture out. It was really sore last night so I iced for a while, but it doesn't seem to be too much better today. I should probably do some more yardwork anyways.

On Sunday, I made a big batch of wild rice and quinoa, and added onions and bell red peppers, and i've been eating that for meals this week. The last of it will be done today, so not sure what to make next. I might just be lazy and make another batch rather than think of something else to cook.

I don't know about you ladies, but my female friends and I don't know how to make a decision to save our lives! We hmmd and hawwed for over two hours last night trying to decide where to go for our annual Girl's Weekend camping trip. We had three laptops and two phones to help us make the decision, but between an overwhelming amount of information on the web, 'conversation tangenting', and trying to get people to answer the phone, it was a bit of a nightmare. I'm afraid I can't focus on things as well as I used to so a lot of the time I spent just staring at everyone else and waiting for them to decide where to go!

This week I feel like i'm just floating along; here for the ride. Feeling a little lost. But don't tell anyone, k?

It's a big decision to make my friends and I always spend longer on the planning then the activity! I enjoy the whole thing !

Umpqua on 05/22/2013:
Sounds like you need a vacation ;) I hope you can figure out a great location for your upcoming trip!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 05/22/2013:
sounds like you and me act & think alike :-D decision making & HOP don't mix well either!

yeah, it hurts like a bi tch, getting a full wax that is!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 05/22/2013:
and yeah, the full wax worked out real well in addition to the very "exciting" weekend i had!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 05/22/2013:
I think i may experiment with quinoa too...i have realized the grains i eat are not that healthy...usually refined with re-added fiber and such.

Puddles on 05/22/2013:
I just can't wait to get on the golf course. They are just opening here right now. Have a great evening.

Man, why do I have to work? I would rather be golfing...

On the other hand, I have a three-day weekend coming up, so I really have nothing to complain about.

I had an evening meeting yesterday, but I still managed to get some more yardwork done. The front grass is now ready for mowing, but the back still needs some TLC, especially the garden. I'm really hoping to get that ready for roto-tilling by the end of this weekend.

I *think* i've decided not to make the trip into the city tomorrow. I will probably regret this next week and be longing to ride my bike to work everyday 

Maybe I can get in another round of golf over the weekend.

There's some leftover multi-grain pasta, spinach and green beans for dinner tonight, if I don't fall into a sleep coma as soon as my butt hits the couch. Last night was another long night spent staring at the bedroom ceiling...

Life is good, my friends! I am riding my endorphin high from golfing yesterday; I had an awesome time with a good group of people and I can't wait to do it again soon  My skills need some fine-tuning; I want to really work on my swing and alignment. My distance is pretty good, but lots of balls are ending up on the left or right of the green instead of on it LOL.

Slightly disappointed that my cuddle time last night with my cousin's newborn was cancelled  My cousin didn't get to town until after 10pm, and after the short sleep I had Tuesday night, I was in bed by 9:30! Since she was only staying the night and leaving early this morning, I guess my visit will have to wait for another time 

My eating's been much better lately, since i'm back on budget to save for some repairs that need to be done around the house and/or getting rid of some more debt this year. Not going nuts buying all the food in the stores LOL, which makes planning meals a lot easier. Protein, carb, fat. End of discussion.

I am debating heading into the city on Saturday; I need to get someone a birthday gift anyways, and I could look at a few bikes while i'm there. Does it make sense that I feel guilty about "dropping" my old bike???

I've been pretty busy lately, working through cleaning the house top to bottom (it now looks so nice and clean I could spend hours just staring, being grateful for what I have), and i've gotten started on the yard as well. I cleaned out two flowerbeds so far, three to go! And then i'm clearing the garden and seeding it into grass, so there's a couple days of work right there as well. Coming along nicely!

I tried to get my bike into shape so that I could start riding it to work, but it looks like it might be time for a new one. This gives me some anxiety because I have no clue about bikes and don't know what kind to buy. I hate to waste money on something that won't last long. I wish there was someone around here I could talk to about it, but there are no bike shops nearby. Oh well, i'll figure it out.

The golf course opened up on Monday, and i'm heading out there after work today for the first nine holes of the season! I am so excited that I couldn't sleep last night. Total of three hours. Mine eyes are bloodshot. But I get to golf today, so there's some adrenaline getting me through the workday and a goal to work towards

Knee is good, aside from slight pain at wierd times of the day; we'll see how it does with golfing.

Visiting family later tonight, my cousin had a baby boy and they're all here for a visit; can't wait to get some cuddle time in!

Enjoy your golf day! I bought a Trek "Skye" but if you could drive to a bike shop and try one for yourself, that would be the best. Mine was low $300 range and it is a mountain bike. I use it on the paved levee, but the tires are wider than a street racing cycle which gives me a better workout. I'm glad your knee is better. I wish I could finish my house to bask in its cleanliness! I have knocked out a little at a time, but I guess I am impatient. I can't put away 20 years of crap in a few months...get some sleep!
