This weekend has been a lesson in frustration.
Friday, the doctor told me I might have a stress fracture in my foot.
Words every girl wants to hear.
That means no jogging or long walks outside (waaaah). No standing in the kitchen cooking for long periods at a time. And I have to park near things downtown instead of parking at my office and walking. I also sat at the table to do my cooking prep instead of standing at the counter.
But, if I keep up my regular routine, then my foot will probably get worse.
Silver lining? It’s warm outside, so I can swim for exercise.
Anyway… I did a good bit of cooking prep this afternoon because this is the last week of the Florida Legislature’s 2013 session. That translates into a lot of long days this week for Gray and me.
So, I tried to stock up on some easy meals for the week.
No. 1: My mom’s Chili
I also stocked up on edamame, almonds, fruit, turkey burger patties and frozen fish filets. Hopefully this will keep us eating healthy during this chaotic week of work.
