I’m having a hard time concentrating at the moment. I’m exhausted and haven’t had any real or artificial sugar ALL DAY. That’s a big thing for me. I kind of feel like I’m in detox. I have a feeling I might get a little grumpy in about an hour or so. Is that normal?
Workout: Today was a rest day. Managed a short little workout on the elliptical at home early in the morning and that was all.
I had my first prolotherapy appointment this morning.
Totally ironic that these signs for the San Diego Rock ‘n’ Roll marathon were all over the darn place.
I’m supposed to be running it, yet I can’t run at all at the moment and am getting prolotherapy on the race course instead. Lovely.
Life is funny isn’t it?
Here’s a description of prolotherapy from my doctor’s website.
I got a little nervous once I got into the room and had to sign this.
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. The whole appointment took about 20 minutes.
I got two injections- one in my hip and the other in my lower back. It hurt more than I thought it would and my left “cheek” is a little tender at the moment, but all went well. I’ve been taking it easy since my appointment and am just not supposed to work out for 24 hours. He gave me the okay to teach my classes tomorrow morning though.
My next appointment is in 2 weeks. Until then I have no plans on running and I’m making a promise to myself to eat as clean as I can until then (hence the no sugar/artificial sugar today).
Oh, which reminds me, I’m excited some of you might want to jump on board with the whole clean eating and no sugar/artificial sugar thing. I actually kind of want to hug you! He he. I’m still trying to figure out exactly which direction to go. I’m researching the 21 Day Sugar Detox versus It Starts With Food or just kind of a modified Practical Paleo type thing. I think I might need a few grains though. My body likes whole grains. Hmmmm…..
Somehow I talked the family into going with me to my appointment this morning. I may or may not have bribed them a bit.
STUFT Daddy had big plans for us though. There’s a new exhibit at the San Diego Zoo so we thought we’d check it out since we were in the area.
I made sure to take my shots (both espresso and chia) like a good mama on the way in.
Yeah, an americano without any sweetener. That’s going to take some time to get used to, it was a little rough.
The zoo was awesome though.
I love giraffes. See the little baby one back there?
They have this whole new Australian Outback area and a new exhibit called “Koalafornia”. Cute.
There’s a koala in the tree. I promise.
Obviously before we left we had to ride the ski ride again to look for the hat we lost the last time.
No such luck. Shocker. at least the view was beautiful.
We worked up quite an appetite so we went to the cutest little hole in the wall place in downtown San Diego.
It was a bit pricey, but it was the best Persian and Mediterranean food.
I went with the chicken shish kabobs.
Andrew went with filet and chicken or something expensive and manly like that. He even took a picture for me.
We got hummus
and our meal came with all sorts of other Persian type goodies on the side.
I had to ask for the sriracha. They always have the good stuff hiding in the back. Ha.
It was so good. Love finding little hidden gem restaurants. Our friend told us about this one, so we’re not the cool ones who discovered it, but we’ll just pretend okay?
Okay, so big day tomorrow.
Not sure if any of you are local “San Di-ago” folks, but there’s an awesome new gym in 4S Ranch and tomorrow is the GRAND OPENING. It’s the Sweat Haus, it’s an amazing facility and I’ll be teaching a couple of classes there starting next week.
I’m teaching a quick HIIT class tomorrow at 9:45 that’s free for anyone to come to. There are lots more classes going on too. Should be a really fun event. Let me know if you’re planning on going. Would love to meet up!
And, well, I may not be running the San Diego Rock ‘n’ Roll marathon Sunday, but I’m going to go hang out at the expo with the some of the cool people (this girl and this guy to name a few) that are racing. We’re meeting there at 3:00 pm tomorrow. I’m going to be like the tag-a-long groupie.
My stud of a friend Sarah is racing too. She is a rock star. She’s ran about 10 marathons since we ran the LA Marathon in March (and won her most recent one) while I’ve just fed my face and collected unused race bibs. Lovely.
Okay, I’m off.
Have a great night! Hey hey it’s the weekend!
What do you have planned?
Any Persian food lovers out there?
