One Small Stair At A Time

I know I mentioned last week that I had injured my knee… at the time it seemed to be healing well and on it’s way to a quick recovery! Fast forward to yesterday (Easter)…

I LOVE my ALDO wedges though! Despite their heel height, they are very comfie and go with everything!

As I was walking Zoe in my 4 inch wedges (okay, perhaps not the best idea), I found a hidden whole in the yard and twisted my ankle… My ankle was fine, but the impact caused an immediate reaction to my knee. Some pops, some “oh craps” and some limping later I made it up to our condo.

Later that night it was clear something just wasn’t right.

To make a long story short, this morning I awoke to a swollen, weak and painful knee, by far the worst it’s been this entire time. I tried to see my orthopedic but they “couldn’t” get me in for 2 weeks! Really docs, thanks for the help.

So Dan and I made the trip to the local emergency care place only to get told that it’s one of 3 things (probably) and that all I could do is rest it, ice it, and take advil.

  1. Meniscus tear
  2. Sprain
  3. LCL injury

I won’t lie, I am pretty bummed out! I was just getting psyched to start training for a 1/2 and the idea of actually not working out my lower body or doing cardio pretty much feels like crap. It’s what I love, it’s what I do.

But I am following the doctor’s orders as well as my husband’s who knows me all too well and knows if given the chance I will likely do more than I should…

Wish me luck! I’ll post about my amazing UPPER body workout tomorrow!

Today’s Meals!

I am mad I didn’t snap a shot of lunch, but it was right after the doctors appointment and I was in no mood for being creative in the kitchen.


Overnight heated oats in jar (when there is just enough peanut butter left to make breakfast perfect)!


Zucchini and eggplant fries; Lentil and whole wheat pasta with leeks, spinach, garlic and thyme (very fresh and light!)

  • How long did it keep you from doing what you love doing?
