3 whole pounds

I went to the doctor last week because I was having problems with my left heel.  The pain was awful.  Apparently I have inflammation and I need to find another form of exercise.   I have lost a total of 3 whole pounds.  While some might say that is nothing, for me, it is the motivation to keep me going.   I just need to step up my game.  Here are some of the things she suggested.

1.  Try water aerobics.   Less stress on my feet and more resistance.  2.  Keep a food log(I am starting this one on Monday).  3. Riding a bike.  While it gives the same effect as walking, but, again less stress on my feet.

I am checking into the local gym around my area to see what type of deals that they offer.    Money and pain are my enemy now.    Money to join a gym and keep my heel from being irritated.  Until I find both, I will keep on walking.

Oh by the way, I made my first smoothie yesterday and it was delicious.  Check out my recipe.

I  wanted to find a way to use leftover coffee.  Then it hit me.   I freeze the leftover coffee in ice-cube trays. I can make ice coffee( my way) or this smoothie.  I used what I had on hand

I added the coffee ice cubes (6), lite vanilla ice cream (1/2 cup), one package of hot chocolate, banana  ( whole), flax-seed powder (1 tablespoon) with a little water. I also added 1 tablespoon of honey and a few drops of butter pecan oil .   You can add cinnamon or nutmeg, with a dash of vanilla extract to your desired taste.   I am sorry I don’t have a pic.  Next time I make one, I will ready with the camera.    I need some more recipes.

Rainbows and Dreams

Yesterday, we had a snow day, yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.  I was able to get some work done, stayed home all toasty and warm(except for helping the husband shovel the snow)  Today I had to return to work(no yeah) and to single digit weather.   On my way to work this morning, I saw a horse shoe rainbow.  It was rather muted, but still a rainbow.  One of friends saw it too and we both said the same thing.   Thank God and dreams are going to come true.  After all the bad weather we have been having, it was nice to see, what might be a hint of spring to come.  I hope so.   I took some photos of the rainbow in a moving car.  Please forgive the picture

 

Faint blue,orang, and red
