I havenâ€™t swam since Saturday because my right tricep has been unusually sore. Since Iâ€™m the Queen of Injuries (I gave that title to myself), I knew that I should take some time off from swimming. I thought I was better todayâ€¦ but not so much.
I did 750 slow meters before my tricep started to ache, and I called it quits. Now Iâ€™m in the rough position of having to drastically reduce my time in the pool just 11 days before my Olympic Triathlon. I know my tricep will be good enough to race on the 14th, but its a confidence bummer to not be swimming right now. Especially if it means I cannot do an open water swim before the race. 🙁 Weâ€™ll see!
Nothing Operation Beautiful canâ€™t help! 🙂
After my swim, I ran 3.0 miles on the treadmill in just under 30 minutes.
I made whole wheat pasta with kidney beans, grilled zucchini, and grilled mushrooms.
I tried to make some sort of cream sauce using milk and cheddar cheese, but it never really became saucey â€“ just clumpy. It was still good!
Does anyone know how to make your own cream sauce?
After dinner, I was really tempted to dig into a pint of ginger ice cream, but I thought about how the ice cream would make me feel emotionally (satisfied!) and physically (mildly ill, especially because I ate all those macaroons). I decided instead to make a Green Monster:
So glad I went the healthier route! I know a lot of you must think Green Monsters 1) look disgusting and 2) are weird, but I promise they taste AMAZING (not like spinach!), and they make you feel SO good from the inside out! Also, my skin is positively glowing lately. I donâ€™t know why I ever stopped drinking them.
My GM had:
- 1 cup rice milk
- 2 raw spinach
- 1/2 a banana
Andâ€¦ Iâ€™m off! Good night. 🙂
