Happy Sunday! So, unfortunately I'm dealing with some hip/groin issues right now. Have been for the past ~3 weeks. I'm not quite sure what caused it, but it started with some stiffness and then turned into near constant burning and tightness. I went to the doctor on Friday, and she said it was possible I have an adductor strain, or the way more serious possibilities of a hip labral tear or Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). I'm supposed to go in for an X-ray this week, and then maybe an MRI. I'm scaling my physical activity was back, with only swimming, upper body strength training, and core work, which is really hard for me. Not much good to say on that front.
As a result, I'm trying to clean up my eating some. Which, to be honest, hasn't been that great this winter anyway. So here's the plan for this week:
Quinoa breakfast bars - these are really tasty, filling, and healthy
Chocolate/banana/spinach smoothies - I use chocolate protein powder
Tunafish salad over spinach, with a pear
Dinner leftovers :)
Sunday - Spinach salad with blue cheese and pear (We had a really late lunch)
Monday - Potluck dinner with friends! We're bringing cookies - ok, not the healthiest, but the chocolate dipped cookies at Whole Foods are SO good.
Tuesday - Chicken and spinach salad
Wednesday - Turkey and quinoa stuffed peppers
Thursday - Leftover stuffed peppers
Have a wonderful Monday!
