Two Steps Forward.....you know the rest.

Sunday, May 09, 2010

SO...I was super excited to get my bike out and riding again. And let me say up front my plans are not totally derailed. But the other day, as I was riding, a car backed out of the driveway without looking and I had to stop quick and jump off my bike landing wrong on my right knee. The knee that someday needs to be replaced. Ouch! So I went home and iced my knee and ended up taking something for pain. The good news is that after resting the knee a bit, I have been able to slowly walk on my treadmill to at least get some exercise. I am hoping to take the bike out again tomorrow.

Needless to day, I was feeling a little bummed out about my grand biking expectations for last week so I decided to cheer myself up this weekend by baking some gf vegan brownies. The funny thing is that I had made some a few weeks ago and put them in a decorated cookie tin where they sat all this time and got dried out and icky. So this time, I bought freezer bags and I plan to store the brownies in the freezer and dole them out one at a time when I want one. That way they will stay fresh and won't go bad. Gee...it doesn't seem like I am eating many brownies does it? I find more often I am opting for fresh fruit. Another success.

My measuring my pasta is working. I don't over-do that way.

And...the count down is on for when the new man comes home. He will be home on labor day weekend. Not that I'm counting or anything :)

That's the news from over here. Hope everyone is having a blessed weekend and a good week ahead.

    I'm glad you weren't badly hurt. Sounds like everything else is moving forward nicely, though.

    Yikes, I'm glad nothing worse came of your biking incident. Good to hear your knee seems to be getting better and you'll be back to biking soon.
    Nice idea with freezing the brownies! I wish I had a huge freezer so I could freeze a ton of healthy stuff. That would be so convenient.

    Sorry to hear about your knee. I'm dealing with knee issues right now too. Not fun. I find that when I'm biking or doing the elliptical, it doesn't bother me as much the next day. Treadmill is another story, I want to run to get my heart rate up and that's not good. The next day, my knee is stiff.

    Take it easy on your knee, give it some time to heal.
