Pain, my old friend

A pretty good day yesterday.My son was in a strange mood, where he wanted to play Sam Amigo for his workout( A Wii game where you play maracas with the remotes to music) and dance. Great idea, but he insisted he had to do this alone- I could watch but I could not play along.While he played , he turned it into a dance routine that could have put Chris Farley to shame. I had to fight from laughing, and after he finished I put on one of my Leslie Samson Indoor walking DVD's and got my own workout. It made most of me feel really good. I say most because it seems that my knee really does not like walking at the moment. It's not an arthritis flair, but something on the order of a bruised or hyper stretched tendon that is so painful it is preventing me from sleep. Neither Tylenol, Aspirin or Ibuprofen is helping, nor is topical things like Ben Gay or Arnica. This is a new one on me. I have broken bones, sprained muscles, dislocated joints, have arthritis, but this feels like a whole new weird thing. I have been up most of the night trying to get it comfortable enough to let me grab some zzz's. Now I am trying a change in position and blogging to keep me company at 3:30 in the morning.Gotta love the internet !

Breakfast was a homemade waffle ( Fiber One pancake mix made into a little more runny pancake and put on a waffle iron) topped with a 1/2 cup egg beater and 1/8 cup mozzarella cheese. Grapes, V8 and coffee kept it company. This made for a really satisfying breakfast !

Morning snack

Lunch was egg salad on an Arnolds Thin ( yes, two egg meals in a row), raw broccoli, half a cucumber and a baked sweet potato with 1 T coconut and 6 pecans. A teaspoon of margarine and a sprinkling of cinnamon finished him off. Sunchips and diet soda finished the meal. I really like baked sweet potatoes and my son gets terribly excited when we have them. I kept remembering that it was right around this time of year when I was pregnant with him that I could not get enough orange veggies, and would have done anything to get anything pumpkin. Now here he is , almost an adult, and liking this food group just as much.

Afternoon snack, and I was really hoping this would have staying power because dinner as going to be late tonight. Hubby is in the middle of a lot of long meetings involving software changes, and he is officiating at a wedding on Saturday, so Friday Night will be tied up with the rehersal and Saturday the wedding, changing our normal grocery shopping routine. We had to do our Friday stop today after he got home late. No big deal, but when you are used to eating at certsin times , it can be a problem.

Dinner, brought to you by your friendly crock pot . Turkey meatloaf made with ground turkey, oat bran, V8, an egg and spices, accompanied with sliced turnips, steamed green beans and salad. I lined the crockpot with turnip slices and put the meatloaf on top of these. The topping and juices drizzled down into the turnips , making them very sweet/savory tasting and yummy ! Fast, healthy and satisfying.

Evening snack, My Nintendo Personal Trainer walking Pedometer is the little white thing that managed to make it into the shot. I am thinking I should take a rest day today to see if the pain in my knee will go away.

Be careful with your knee! I've battled knee problems for the last couple years, and it's so frustrating! I hope you were finally able to get some rest.

That waffle looks delicious!

Good eats today though. I like your waffle with egg beaters on top!
