Ankle sprain

I took a sick day today so I could get to the doctor for an x-ray.

While waiting to get my ankle checked, I sipped on some coffee and read about introverts (which is a subject that has been fascinating me lately, more on that another day).

Turns out my ankle is sprained, luckily. The doc could see my old fracture from 2007 on the x-ray, but didn’t believe that my injury from yesterday was related to that injury at all. He said the bones and ligaments would have healed by now.

While waiting to get a brace, a little (well big in the eyes of a bug hater) visitor came under the door. It was a centipede! I HATE centipedes, even more than spiders. I haven’t even seen one in our house yet, thank god. I hopped up to higher ground and then the radiologist came in and I told her why I looked so terrified. The doctor had a good laugh at my fear, but he understood.

I was fitted with a figure 8 brace.

And given some pain pills before being sent on my way. On Monday, I need to see the physical therapist, even though ankle therapy is something I know by heart by now.

I was starving when I got home and made myself a turkey wrap with provolone, spinach, frank’s red hot sauce and sweet peppers. I had some cottage cheese on the side. I’ve been obsessed with cottage cheese lately. I have to buy the 4% milkfat to really love the flavor. Living in Switzerland spoiled me with wonderful cottage cheese and anything besides the 4% milkfat tastes fake to me.

All wrapped up. I love wraps and never get sick of them.

Dessert was blood orange Ciao Bella sorbet. I saw it on Healthy Tipping Point the other day and knew I had to try it. I am also obsessed with anything blood orange lately, thanks to Chobani!

Karma wanted to try some too.

I’m going to rest on the couch and maybe read for a bit. Catch you later! Have a great Friday.

What I’ve Been Eating This Week

I’ve been taking pictures off and on this week and thought I would share some of them tonight because I wasn’t falling asleep on the couch, was in the blogging mood and I miss blogging.

On Monday, I went to my sister-in-law’s Pampered Chef party. She was celebrating a beautiful new kitchen remodel.

We had some kind of cinnamon bun with apples, guacamole and chips, bean salsa, brie and preserves with toasted baguettes, and cream cheese/preserves with crackers. I also had a glass of margarita mix.

My mom bought two items and I bought a 4 qt. collapsible bowl with a lid. This will be perfect for potlucks, parties, and for storing food in the fridge. Plus, with a tiny kitchen (wish I had a remodel like my sister-in-law and brother, but that would take expanding our house), I need all of the collapsible items I can get!

This morning’s breakfast was Love Grown Granola Apple Walnut Delight and a cup of coffee.

I liked the dehydrated apple chunks in this flavor!

Lunch was a turkey wrap with lettuce, goat cheese, and tomatoes. I wasn’t too keen on the goat cheese flavor. Yuck. I have had it before and it didn’t seem to irritate me so much. Oh well!

I ate it while reading on the kindle and some blogs on my Google reader.

Snack before the gym tonight was a whole wheat tortilla with chunky Barney Butter and a banana. This actually ended up being my dinner because it filled me up and after the gym, I wasn’t very hungry.

I’ve been reading Eating Animals on the kindle.

I am finding aspects of it quite grotesque and yet, very educational. I keep thinking about eating meat and finding it grosses me out. Even getting a turkey wrap today was difficult, but I needed some protein.

I’m watching Modern Family right now and never got into it last season, but figure I’ll give it a chance this fall.

Can’t believe it’s Thursday already tomorrow! Hooray for the week almost being over! 🙂
