Knee Injury Workout

Good Morning!

Yesterday I woke up finally feeling rested after a long weekend. I worked a bit on the blog while enjoying my breakfast – mashed up breakfast casserole. This is seriously amazing and it will definitely be making a regular appearance on my meal plan.

Since I worked today, I packed my lunch as well as pre & post workout food. For lunch I had a heated up Meatloaf Muffin with leftover Roasted Celery and leftover Mashed Potatoes.

Work was pretty slow so the time definitely dragged on. Luckily I got to leave right at 4:00. I headed to a new gym that has a pool. I want to try swimming with my knee injury to see if I can keep working my lower body. I swam for an hour using these intervals

I lost track of how many times I did this and instead just kept going until I had been in the pool for an hour. My knee is feeling a little sore but I’m hoping I can sleep it off. I’m not walking with a limp which is a good sign.

My pre and post workout meals are pretty much the same these days. Pre-workout is an Egg Muffin with Half an Avocado. The Egg Muffin is super simple. Each muffin is only two eggs, a tablespoon of Coconut Milk and a frozen cube of Basil.

Post-workout I have Sweet Potato with Chicken.

Dinner was a simple and quick one pot meal – Sausage with Asparagus & Artichokes topped with Puttanesca Sauce and Nutritional Yeast. Took me 10 minutes to make. Quick, easy and delicious!
