I’m still really, really enjoying the “day in the life” of being a Clinical Dietitian! There are just so many little things that add up and are a great fit for my personality. Especially the problem solving.
After work I ate my Alliebar and kiwi and headed down to my yoga studio. I had 45 minutes to spare and went for a walk – in my Danskos (!!!) if that tells you anything about how my first day went in them 🙂 My feet weren’t necessarily walking on sunshine but they did NOT HURT and were able to walk a mile or so additional. SCORE!! I think I have found a winner. I also think that the secret to Dankos is that the heel is kind of depressed – so there isn’t pressure on it like in high heels, wedges, and other angled shoes.
YOGA was relaxing. We went to a different instructor tonight and the class was a much slower pace, but that was good for my muscle recovery. My legs feel great now and I’m ready to get back into workouts tomorrow. I’m going to ease in with the ET and biking tomorrow and run on Wednesday.
After yoga, I came home to the most DELICIOUS salad!!!
This is a perfect example of how Matt and I work together. I told him yesterday that I’d be home late and to whip up dinner. I also told him the ingredients: millet, a can of chickpeas, eggplant, pepper, nuts and raisins and told him to make something spiced with garam masala.
He executed my idea perfectly!
And here’s a recipe page with all the info: Spiced Millet Salad.
My Buddhalicious portion! (Buddha bowl availability making progress!)
An OJ, POM + diet tonic mocktail refresher
KERF mentioned on Woman’s Day’s website: Granola + Yogurt as a favorite snack!
Thanks for all of the RUNNING page suggestions!! I’ll work on something, but it might be a week or so before I can put anything up (this is a busy week!!). Not sure I can cover all of your topics, but I can tell you about my experiences and what has worked for me. I’m not a running expert! (Example: I’ve never had shin splints, so I haven’t the slightest what one should do to treat them – perhaps lots of ice?!)
I’m going to READ in bed. Goal of the month is to read more!!! I have a stack of great novels to crack into.
