None of that happened. I showed up to the doctor's office. Ready for results and got turned away!! The doctor had decided to go on vacation for the 4th of July. Now don't get me wrong. This is TOTALLY understandable....but your office couldn't let me know?? (I have to say....a little bit of the DC mannerisms I've picked up along the way started to show.... As I started taking my hoops out and mean mugging the nurse.........juuuuust kidding!) I rescheduled for Thursday.
The appointment was very quick. I was in and out within 20 minutes with both good and bad news. The good news is that the x-ray showed my bone is healing properly, the bad news being that it is not completely healed....still a pretty big crack in that stupid metatarsal. So he said I could bike, and swim, but that was it. NO RUNNING FOR 90 MORE DAYS! *Dagger in my heart*
So I didn't run. It was over 100 degrees and my daughter beggggggs me to go to the pool, so swim we did.
I'm not sure why she is pushing her belly out so far......lol. We swam for 90 minutes and it was pretty fabulous. I've noticed a BIG difference in endurance and strength just the few times I've gone this summer. I cannot lie, she totally helped me out with different positions/moves:-)
Then she went off to see her cousins and swim some more and I borrowed something of my mother's again.....
I rode for 12.7 miles. I realllllly got into it this time. It was 100 degrees though, and my foot is on the mend so I did try to take it slow (only did a few all out, ass in the air sprints). I stopped took a quick break twice to refill my water bottle , too.
After the swimming and biking, I was in need of some serious energy. So I raided my mother's refrigerator while returning her bike. I needed a salad something fierce but I didn't have enough ingredients to make something awesome. Between her and I a masterpiece was created. Baby spinach topped with adzuki beans, black beans, chick peas, red onion, banana peppers, zucchini, squash, cauliflower and a bit of coleslaw (Yay! for Mayo free!). All topped with Chipotle Cholula.
Even though that was a big bowl full of awesome my body was still craving a little something more. So I grabbed a low fat banana vanilla yogurt and topped it with some fresh raspberries. Boy, that did the trick. It was seriously good!
All in all today was a pretty damn good day. I worked up a crazy sweat and feel like I am going to crash annnnnny second now because I am so exhausted. Plus, an extra bonus as if getting to workout wasn't enough, over three hours of physical activity in the sun has left me with an awesome looking tan:-) .........which you can see from the picture of me on the bike these pasty hams need.
