So, I am sad to say that I missed my Chai-2-5k jog tonight. My left knee had been extremely angry all day. I don't know why, but even sitting was painful, so I had to skip the jog. I always try to force and guilt myself into pushing through and doing it anyway, just on principle. But this time I heard Bob's voice in my head... "you gotta listen to your body"

And I do. I've ignored it so long. I need to listen to it. Obviously it is mad, so I need to give it a little time. Hopefully, training tomorrow with loosen it up a bit. (who am I kidding? it usually makes it grumpier!) But a girl can dream.

Joel had to work late, so I made a quickie dinner of brown rice, garbanzo beans, feta cheese and tomatoes.

I also put on some soup to crock.

It smells amazing. And its working very well at eliminating the Z pewp stench.
(he's been doing much better today, thank you for your concern!)

Well, I just finished packing my gym bag, and it is bedtime now. Goodnight peeps!

Sewp looks delish. Recipe please.

Sorry about the knee! Sucks. I'd trade you for the FAKE sore knee I just use as my excuse to sit on my ass watching Sesame Street all day with my 2 year old.

Haha knee is painful, but I actually think a fake painful knee would be even worse! The mind is always stronger than the body!

As with everything.. I don't use a recipe... but here's what I put in da soup -

1/2 roast chicken (meat)
small white taters
wax beans
chicken broth
beef broth
