Frittata for one, please!

I love rainy nights! We’re having a nice little storm here right now and I’m happy I don’t have to go anyplace!

My appointment with the orthopedist was fine. He didn’t really tell me anything I didn’t already know. I have IT Band Syndrome, I shouldn’t push through the pain, and I probably shouldn’t run the half marathon next weekend (whether I do or not remains to be seen). He showed me how my right quad was smaller then my left which may have contributed to my IT Band problem. Crazy! I have no idea how that happened. He said that I should start out slow, running 2 miles at a slow pace. This was actually encouraging because he was telling me I could run! He also prescribed some physical therapy which I will make an appointment for tomorrow.

Other things I am looking into for my knee:

1. An IT band strap

2. A foam roller

Anyone have advice on any of these?? I can’t find a foam roller anywhere!! I may order one online but I’d love to have one sooner then that. Suggestions?

I did have a nice work out this evening though. I ran to the gym, did 40 minutes on the elliptical and then ran home.

Once home, I made some dinner for one!

I made myself a frittata in a little pan we have that’s perfect for one person to make eggs in.

First I sauteed some mushrooms and spinach, then I poured 1 egg + I egg white (whipped) over that. I let it set for a little while on medium heat then added some lite Mexican cheese from Trader Joe’s.

I like frittatas better then omelets because there is more surface area which means more bites!

I also had a soy dog on a piece of whole wheat bread on the side that I grilled on the George Foreman (hence why it’s so flat!)

And of course an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie for dessert! mmmm….

TOMOROW’S FRIDAY!!! YAY!

Mission find a foam roller will go into effect tomorrow at 5! Wish me luck!

Do you like rain storms?? I think it’s a good excuse to stay in and watch a movie…even though most times I don’t need an excuse 🙂

  1. I’ve seen foam rollers and target and at running shoe stores. Maybe try one of those.

  2. Aw- sorry about your IT band. I hope the therapy/recs he gave you help. Great eggs- they look super yummy. Hope you have a good weekend.

  3. I got mine at a store called Relax the Back. It may be a chain, or maybe something like it exists in your area. Also, my gym sells them, so I would call 24 hour fitness, or Bally’s to see if you can buy one from them even if you’re not a member.
    Even without the knee pain, you’re gonna love the foam roller. Roll through the pain – it’s worth it!
    I probably have what you do, so I’m thinking about getting one of those IT band straps too – I found on one ebay pretty cheap. Hopefully it will help!

  4. Love rain storms and your flat dog! 🙂

    Listen to your doctor – ITB syndrome can be a tricky thing. Usually a specialty running shop will carry foam rollers, but I got mine online. MASSAGE THERAPY – find yourself a GOOD therapist, perhaps one who specializes in active release or neuromuscular therapy. It can work wonders!

    Frittata – yum. I like the bigger surface area too. 🙂

  5. yummy frittata!!

  6. I just bought a foam roller today at Dick’s Sporting Goods. I’m going to try it out tonight. It even came with a DVD.
