Aahhh what a good day. I find that sometimes I take the small things in life for granted. I came home from work yesterday only to find my heel swollen and sore. I know, in perspective, not the most horrible thing in the world but I have to say I was bummed out. I have a hard time sitting still and to be down and out for some time would have been so difficult. I immediately made a doc appt. Now I can handle pain as long as i know I'm not going to make it any worse but I went in to my appt fearing the worst.
Now I gotta say my doctor rocks. He really knows his stuff! He fixed my knee right up last time I started having pain in it. He took a few minutes and said I had Plantar fasicitiis and that I would be ok. I was ssoo relieved. I even asked him if I could continue with my workouts and he said as long as it doesn't bother me too much to go for it. Just wear really good shoes. (Done!)
I left a happy girl and very much in the mindset not to take the little things in life for granted.
I finally even got a call back from a trainer at my gym and we have an appt. for 6:30 am on Wednesday. So glad to start up a whole new routine! So between my heel in recovery and a new trainer I was one happy girl!
A big bowl of oats with greek yogurt and apples also made for a great start to the day!
Know what else makes my day?
Shiatsu Foot Massager! Anytime I can take a piece of the spa home with me it makes my day. I was skeptical at first. Some of these automatic massager things kind of hurt. But this one is awesome. (I’m using it right now as I type even!) Its not too loud, fits under my desk and massages my poor achin feet! Did I mention theres even a heated option?? Aaahhhhh…oh the little things…
My husband likes the fact that it had some free shipping on it from amazon.
Another thing that makes my day??
Home made guac..
The trick to a fabulous guac is hands down the avocados. Overly ripe, strong avocados. Always give them the squeeze and sniff test before buying. There's no real recipe for guac..just the usual goods..
We are spoiled here in California by our abundance of amazing avocados. Cute side story that I found funny. Now I'm originally from Pennsylvania. Guacamole isn't a common condiment there like it is here. When visiting my parents back home I sent my sister to the store for some avocados. She came back with some really bad ones so I told her to return those. She went up to the counter and told the guy..”Hi, Im here to return some guacamoles…” hehehe. Made me laugh a bit. She's so cute, I love her. Ah anyways..the trickiest part to guacamole is removing the pit. Which is made easy by this technique.
1) Carefully slice into the pit
Easy! Just make sure to use a very sharp knife.
I also made my husband some quesadillas. Shredded pork marinated with chilies, cumin, garlic, onions and a bunch of other stuff tossed in a pan and slow simmered.
I fired up our grill pan and toasted up some tortillas.
So good and fragrant! Again no recipe. I just eyeball it all.
My dinner was a big salad with lentils! Im on a huge lentil kick at the moment..
And some Ezekiel toast with laughing cow cheese.
I finished out the night with a big mug of tea. I love making little tea mixtures. I was thinking back to the strawberry tea that i bought earlier. Its mad good but pricey. I can so make my own cheaper. I bought some strawberry tea from Celestial Seasonings..($2.99!) Added in 1 tsp of cocoa powder and chocolate stevia and it was delicious!
What a way to end the night.
So overall it’s been fab. Heel is healing, new trainer so on my way to total body makeover and some good eats. Its the little things in life that I just love so much. What about you?? I would love to hear about the little things that just make your day!
