I was diagnosed with tennis elbow last week. I do not play tennis. If I would play tennis, I would have to wear one of those little tennis skirts and I would have to book my court. That is how it works in my subdivision because it seems two women beat the hell out of each other one day with their tennis rackets fighting over a court.
So, I am in my own version of hell because I can't knit. No knitting and it is about to drive me around the bend. Crocheting is out since it is my right arm.
I am limited with what I can do with my right hand and arm. If I do something I am not supposed to, my fingers go numb. Great. Grocery shopping was fun today. I have to learn to not use the arm. It was painful on the way out of the store. I am glad I took the Escape, it is easy to get into and out of and it is easy to load groceries into. Love that pop up back end.
Since the corgi and I have both gained weight, today I decided was the first day of exercising outside the home. I took him on a walk. We have to start small and work our way up to the mile. The vet said he needs to weigh in at 29 pounds. I nearly fell over laughing from that one. He loves to eat. So, she told me to start out small and then work our way up to that mile. It works for me. He weighed in at 41.5 pounds. Big for a corgi.
Anyway, my tennis elbow is from vacuuming. Yep, vacuuming with my Dyson DC59 Motor head. Love that thing! Only bad thing, since it is so top heavy, it hurt the arm and elbow. Thus my problems.
The thought of me in one of those itty bitty tennis skirts...No, I don't think so. Ever! The thought of my butt hanging out, I will skip that.
For my snack, I had baby spinach, baby kale, coconut water, some frozen fruit and blended it all up in the Vitamix. That is one powerful blender. It is so freaking loud. We broke down and decided to get one last year. We had 2 blenders that we received for our wedding 14 years ago and they pretty much sucked. So, we pawned them off onto my sister. Told her she could always garage sale them. She used them once and garage saled them and bought a better blender from the proceeds.
My sister tells me I am weird for liking kale. I have to have leafy greens these days. They have to be part of my diet. Doctor's orders. I do like them but, I generally don't cook with them. So, I am using the Vitamix to have my leafy greens in a more palatable way.
I am waiting for pomegranate season. I love those things! I get one and snack away on it. It is a nice treat to get one.
