Sweet Saturday

Seriously this weekend has been fantastic and is only getting better.


We started the weekend off with a trip to The Grilled Cheese Truck. We went with some friends and ate deliciousness. So good. Of course we had to eat on the ground in the dark so pictures did not happen. I really need a camera that can handle low-light.


This morning I woke up with my legs looking super puffy and swollen. Especially my knees. Andy went on a run at a local park and I decided to walk on the treadmill. But not without taping my knees first!


My PT suggested tape only. He explained to me that knee braces or sleeves can't move the kneecap in the way I need to. I highly suggest talking to a physical therapist before taping your knees! (Everyone is different and there are tons of different ways to tape.)


I start with the cover roll. The leukotape will rip your skin off. You don't want that. The cover roll serves as a barrier.


You want to get a tight fit so your legs look really awkward.


You want knee puckering. You seriously do. That's how you know the leukotape is tight enough. (Again, this was a suggestion from my physical therapist.)


Weird knee puckering.


Then I foam rolled my calves, IT bands and hamstrings. Tight muscles can actually make knee pain worse. Foam rolling helps stretch them out.


I bought my foam roller on Amazon for super cheap. It's short but does the trick. Afterwards I walked 2 miles on the treadmill at an incline with wrist weights. Biz gave me the idea. I ran .6 of a mile and lifted weights for 30 minutes.


After my walk/run we went to pick up our CSA and go shopping. I was so excited to find PUMPKIN ice cream!


And I made a pizza with figs and arugula from our CSA. I also used pancetta, mozzarella, roasted garlic and parmesan.


It was amazing! I sauteed the arugula with the pancetta which was a great idea. The arugula had a wonderful flavor to it.


The figs caramelized nicely and added a welcome sweetness.


The crust was wheaty and buttery due to the garlic butter I brushed it with. YUM!

I weighed in today and my weight is the exact same. I haven't been eating as clean as possible and need to work on that. I went out for dinner for my sister's 21st birthday, for my friend's birthday and I ate delicious grilled cheese. I also cut back on weight lifting. Bad idea. I know next week will be better!

Can't wait to post about where we're going for dinner tonight!

How's your weekend going?

So, after seeing all your posts about food trucks, I'm realizing that this is an area in which Atlanta is seriously lacking. Granted, I live out in the suburbs so maybe there is some great Atlanta food truck movement that I am unaware of, but frankly, a grilled cheese truck sounds amazing. I live about a block from my college campus and think I need to start some sort of mobile food in my area. Think I can serve treats out of the back of my Honda Element?? :)

A truck of just different kinds of grilled cheese? Holy balls. I need to find one of those and start dating the owner. Then we can get married, have babies and be a family of grilled cheese making people. It would be fantastic.

The pizza looks terrific, I would never think to put those together but it sounds interesting and yummy.

We need a grilled cheese truck in Cleveland!

Great job on your walk/run - I think it's great you still got out there and did what you could without hurting yourself.

I'm jealous of your trip to the Grilled Cheese truck. that sounds amazing!!!!

yes get back to clean eating, I am too!

Also, just a friendly tip for weightloss, it is EXTREMELY hard to see any progress if you eat at a restaurant more than twice in a week. just a friendly reminder :) I'm struggling too, ate out for lunch and dinner yesterday but i'm back on track
