Hey everyone. Its Monday morning. Two weeks ago I came off crutches! My knee is improving and I'm now able to walk up and down stairs unassisted. The physical therapist was explaining the doc's post surgery report to me on Friday and in addition to the meniscus tears and loose ligaments I have a stretched ACL from my knee being off center. The doc cut some tissue that allowed my knee to realign correctly while relieving pressure on my ACL. Now Therapy is strengthening my knee to overcome the natural pull of the hamstring and reteaching the muscle memory of the previous tweaked muscles. Today I am off to buy a pair of five finger vibrams or other low profile running shoe...might as well relearn how to run correctly,
Today is a big day for the better half. Last week she dropped a bombshell on me - she wants to go primal. As a family most of our dinners have been primal. Breakfast and lunch (oatmeal, cereal, flour tortillas, crackers, pita bread) along with a daily one pump mocha from *bucks kept her from fully living the lifestyle. I know she will do well.
So my challenge now is to improve the primal food options...I can live on bacon and bone broth but she is a little more picky in her selection. I pre-ordered Make it Paleo: Over 200 Grain Free Recipes For Any Occasion by http://www.primal-palate.com/ to improve my selection of food. Still our biggest diet challenge is J's, my three year old, egg allergies.
Not a typical post for me. If you clicked looking for a food idea here it is:
1lb 80/20 % ground beef
Mold into 4 patties
Place in microwave and nuke for three minutes each
This is an emergency back up plan when the hotel (nationwide chain) tells you on the phone there is a guest grill then changes their mind after you prepay on-line, arrive and check in...a rant for another day.
Blogger tracks the page views for my blog. It doesn't track RSS feeds. I'm sure there is a way to track those but I haven't had the time to figure it out. I read most of the blogs I follow through my Mac mail reader. Any suggestions from bloggers who know what they are doing...or if you read via rss can you please leave a comment so I can get an idea how many people may be following my blog via rss.
