Doctor Day (Gulp)

in All Posts

Good morning.  Today is THE DAY.  You know — orthopaedic doctor day.  My appoint is at 9, so come back for lunch and a recap.  Cross your fingers!


I have my list of symptoms all ready to go, and I’m planning to ask him about the supplement hyperimmunized milk factor (HIMF), which I read about in this article (and a lovely reader told me about!).   Considering I’ve never heard of HIMF and my family owns a supplement store, I’m curious to learn more. 


Breakfast was a repeat from earlier in the week: flax French Toast!


Flax FT is AWESOME.  I love it! So nutty and delicious.  Plus, tons of omega 3’s.


Plus a banana and maple syrup:


I didn’t have time to do my strength routine this morning, but that’s OK because I usually get off my night shift a little early on Thursdays.  Depending on what the doctor says is OK or not OK, I may go to the gym.


I did streeeeeeeeeeeeetch out my muscles, though! And I foam rolled the shitz out of my thighs.


In another news…


Happy birthday to the lovely Jenna! Welcome to your mid-twenties (baw hahah!)

Here’s "10 Reasons Why Women Love Vampires."  :)  Reason #1 totally should’ve been "Edward Cullen"!

    Good luck at the doctor's, I hope he or she gives you some wonderful news.

    Really interesting article on runners injuries! Thanks for sharing. I too had some knee problems when running heavy mileage during training. My personal trainer has me do some basic exercises to get your body used to running with the right gait. He would have me practice leaning up against a wall or fence, while running in place for a minute. Then he would have me take off running down the street practicing the same gait. I am sure you will feel the difference right away, but continued practice will get your body used to running that way permanently. Good luck!
