I baked a few things....go figure.

Saturday, December 22, 2012


Gluten free chili brownies for my BFF.

I actually used half of those to make some with peanut butter frosting and added chocolate and peanut butter chips on top.....kind of like the salty peanut butter brownies I made a while back. These were for a friend at work.

King Arthur Flour St. Patrick's Day Cookies (aka pistachio pudding cookies) for another friend at work.

Chocolate and mint chip cookie bars for the model club Christmas party last night.
I'm actually going to be baking some Mexican brownies for work after I finish this blog...picture will be posted tomorrow.

Update on my calf/knee in case anybody is interested. I did see the PT guy on Monday. He wasn't so sure it was IT band but wasn't really sure what the problem was. He was unable to recreate the pain. He gave me some more hip/butt exercises to do and wanted my to try running about 1/2 mile to see if it triggered my issue. I tried that on Tuesday and there was no problem at 1/2 mile so I kept going until I got to 1.5 miles....still no problem. I emailed him and he said to continue the 1.5 mile runs on Thursday (done!!) and Sunday. I'll report back to him but so far so good...I may get to start building again :-)

    Nat,

I hope someone can figure out what is causing your pain. I know this is very frustrating.

You are a heck of a good baker. Yum!

As Promised....Cookies..PB&J Brownies and Cooky Recipe Number 19: Oatmeal Coconut Drops

Saturday, December 15, 2012


These were adapted from a food network 12 days of cookies recipe.
www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/jeff-mau
ro/pb-and-j-blondie-recipe/index.html

I just wanted brownies so I took out 1/3 cup of flour and added 1/3 cup cocoa powder. I also omitted the chopped peanuts and put in chocolate chips instead. They were a big hit.


This is the drop cooky variation. My husband and his friends enjoyed them very much.

More baking on tap today :-)

And the orthopedic doc says........

Friday, December 07, 2012

it's most likely IT Band syndrome at the Gerdy's tubercle attachment point.
www.coretherapy.com/health_news/arti
cles_iliotibial_band.html

What he did see in one of the x-rays when I was lying on my side with my knee bent, is that my kneecaps track toward the outside...not too fabulous....probably from tight ITB. He didn't seem at all worried about the ostopenia since I've already been diagnosed with arthritis and the fluid was probably caused by walking with my knee locked.
He suggested taking a couple of weeks off of running and doing cross training. Continue with the exercises, stretches and foam rolling I have been doing from when I diagnosed myself with ITB syndrome in November. Try Superfeet insoles....he noticed my knees do track a little inward when I do single-leg squat.
I should be getting a call from PT to get an appointment and will go back and see the doc in 6 weeks...sooner if things get worse or I can cancel if I'm feeling fabulous.
It is very good news. I should be running again soon and will be able to do my 8K race in March :-)
We will now be back to our regular baking blogs.

STRINGS58 12/30/2012 2:59PM

    I may have to try the insoles someday - but right now, I think that my interior thigh muscle is the weak culprit of the IT syndrome imbalance, so I'm looking at strengthening that one. I've got the foam roller, but I'm still figuring out how to make it "hurt so good"

I hope you find yourself recovering quickly and you have some good distractions. This stuff can be frustrating.

SPEEDYDOG 12/14/2012 7:21AM

    Hi Nat,

At least you know what is going on! I hope the PT can help get you on the right track. One of the reasons I mix biking with running is to give my body a break. Biking is low impact. (A few cuts and bruises not withstanding).

I hope you heal quickly.

That is great news, emoticon for you still being able to do your race in March. How are you feeling these days. I was born with my kneecaps pointing outwards, ortho fixed one when I torn my meniscus in soccer injury but since I was not having problems with the other one he said ain't broke don't fix it! He said later I would need surgery on it but not until I start having problems with it.

X-Ray Report

Thursday, December 06, 2012


** HISTORY **:
Left knee pain without trauma

** FINDINGS **:
Technique: Three views of the left knee were obtained.

Mild periarticular osteopenia is suggested. Trace effusion is
noted in the suprapatellar bursa. No other significant
abnormality.


Hmmmm....well, I know I have arthritis in my knee (osteo) and I can see that it is swollen above the knee. What that has to do with my calf, I don't know. I have an appointment on Friday with orthopedics. We shall see.

Las Vegas RnR Half Marathon 12/2/12

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

I guess I never posted what happened after the IT band issues. I did try a run on 11/20 and was hit by a calf pain that made it impossible for me to keep running...or even really walking on it unless I kept my knee locked. It started getting better...some weird knee tightness (feeling almost like there was something in the way). I could walk normally at least. I saw the doctor on 11/26 because the calf started hurting again...she thought it was just a strain and not any DVT and said go ahead and run the HM.
Off to Vegas I went. I met up with JLITT62 and we had a good time catching up. She said she would stick with me during the race and that she did.
I started out feeling fabulous...got about a half mile in to the race and that calf thing happened again!! I walked the remainder of the race rather painfully but JLITT stuck with me even though I told her she could go ahead and run. What a fabulous friend. She posted a couple of blogs about the event:

HM number one done!!

It can only get better from here.
I was going to post my horrible finish line photo but they want $40!!! I'll wait until the price goes down...then you can see it in all of it's ugliness.

I'm off to get an x-ray today. Kaiser red tape so my doc can get me to orthopedics to see what is going on with my calf/knee. Hopefully they can figure this out.......and fast!! I want to run!!!!!

    Nat,

13.1 miles is a long way to go with a hurt calf. Way to hang in there. I hope you get better soon.

    So sorry your first HM was not a terrific experience, but way to go in finishing anyway and super that JLITT hung with you. Hope they figure out what's up with your calf, wishing you a speedy recovery. emoticon

    They'll sent you announcements for the next two years that it's your "last chance" to get the photo. I think it is wise to wait for a price drop.

I am so glad you crossed the finished line. Way to go, and JLITT62 is truly a great friend.

Quick healing!
