Mardi Gras

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

Seriously!? I think I need to avoid holidays centered around eating and drinking from now on. I got seriously fat on fat Tuesday! At least i worked out for 30 minutes. Tomorrow is a new day and I've already made my healthy lunch and snacks for tomorrow.

    I can totally commiserate with you. I know for a fact that there is a fresh King cake at work that was delivered to us right before 5pm. Perhaps eating fish 3 times a week will help combat the Mardi Gras fare.

Party girl

Sunday, February 19, 2012

I've been out almost every night this week. It's Karneval season. Karneval is the German version of Mardi gras. It's basically a non stop halloween party thursday before the catholic holiday of Ash Wednesday and ends this Tuesday. People dress up in wild costumes some political and some funny. So my friends and I get dressed up too and go to a couple of German bars in manhattan that are having Karneval parties. It's a lot of fun but it's really bad for my diet - too much beer.

    I would love to live that life. I just fall asleep so early to get up hiking! Still I don't hike well if I drink. I think you are going out enough for both of us emoticon

    Hallo! Ich bin schon froh, dass diese Karnevalsaison vorbei ist! Ich habe heuer auch viel gefeiert und soooooo viele Krapfen gegessen! Das freut mich, dass Du viel Spass gehabt hast! Ich habe nicht gewusst, das man auch in NY das Karneval feiern kann! Das ist ja toll!

ACL Injury update

Friday, February 17, 2012

So I went to my Doc yesterday and he says he's not a 100% sure but thinks I won't need surgery after all. He said he doesn't think my ACL is completely torn and I may have only a torn some cartilage, which may require a minor surgery but it's not as bad as a complete torn ACL. I definitely feel better (sometimes). Yesterday I felt really good almost 100%, but the day before and today I'm limping a little again. I have noticed though when I get a good nights sleep I definitely feel better so I'm going to make a concerted effort to get to bed early from now on.

    Glad that you may not need surgery. Resting throught out the day may help .

  Good news if you don't need any major surgery. Probably staying off it at night is why it feels better in the morning. Get your rest and follow doctor's orders and hope fully before long you'll be feeling good as new. emoticon

I'm actually looking forward to seeing the doc tomorrow. My leg has really been in pain lately. I managed to muster up the guts to ask for a seat on the train this evening. I just couldn't stand anymore. But then sitting all day is also uncomfortable. I can't get into a comfortable position when I eat, sleep, work, watch tv or anything. so I'm looking forward to seeing if he has some ideas on how to make me feel better.
