Procrastination and Injuries

Somehow April slipped by and we are well into May and warmer weather in this tundra known as Cleveland. Honestly, I don’t care for weather way too hot or too cold – I’m a girl who likes high 60s or low 70s with no humidity. Those days are far and few between here, but somehow I manage and complain my way through most of the time.

I’ve made a conscious point over the past month to only eat “real” food. In fact, tonight I’m going to make a crustless spinach quiche with mushrooms and peppers which I’ll eat the rest of the week. I am more satisfied when I’m eating real food and feel like I can have small celebrations in between. In return, my body has shed a few pounds.

My new gym finally opened up and while I’m excited about going, I have an injury I’m still nursing. Here’s what I learned – never ever try to walk when your foot is asleep! BIG mistake. I did this about a month ago, yes a MONTH ago! I was inpatient and starting walking without being able to feel my right foot. I really thought I had broken my right big toe. I did not, but a severe sprain ensued and I’ve been nursing it for a month now. I’m almost back to 100%, but the toe/foot is still tender after a week on heels usually. This weekend I’m back in the gym – actually tomorrow after work I’ll be heading there. The mother’s day cake will be gone and I’m ready. I’m also having an incredibly frustrating week at work so a good sweaty workout will help.

Oh and looming on the forefront is a wedding reception at the end of July. The invitation today said “wedding casual,” I’m not sure what that means. I think a dress, but no heels? How can that be? At any rate, I don’t want to show up feeling/looking like I do now. I want to feel and look fabulous, so the gym is where this can be accomplished.

I’m off to make my quiche and get ready to watch some basketball. Tomorrow night, a great workout!

  • Easy Crustless Quiche

    This is a fantastic recipe that is easily adapted to whatever you really love in your quiche.

    7 egg whites;
    1.5 C skim milk
    (for quiche shown)
    Add 1 C chopped vidalia onion (sauteed in oil first)
    1 chopped red pepper (sauteed with onion)
    1 10 oz. box of spinach (also sauteed)

    Heat oven to 450 and bake for 15 minutes; reduce heat to 375 for an additional 30 minutes. During the last 15 mins. add approximately 2 C of sharp cheddar cheese.

    This will yield approximately 6 large pieces, amounting to around 110 calories per piece.

    Failure is merely a perception; with each effort, we get the ability to start over again.
