A primal (paleo-ish/caveman) bent food blog for me to hoard recipes, share ideas, post articles, ramble about science and talk about eating. With the occasional fitness, health, and general hippiewellness post thrown in.

 

RIP Marcella Hazan

Author of one of the best roasted chicken recipes, ever.

So good it was renamed Engagement Chicken because people who made it kept getting marriage proposals.

Stuff and Things

I am 14 weeks post surgical from ACL revision/reconstruction (revision for those following at home means I’ve had this surgery once before and they took out old hardware).

My flexibility and range of motion is great, the graft is strong/stable but my leg is weak.  The double-whammy of a second injury on the same leg, combined with 5 weeks on crutches prior to the surgery (to allow time for the MCL tear and tibial fracture to heal) means muscle atrophy extravaganza.

I have one more PT appointment and then I need to stay on top of a ruthless one legged circuit to get my muscles back so I  CAN OMG start running again. I’m not a ridiculous runner or anything, but man, the occasional 5k just makes me feel less like killing people. It’s easy and therapeutic and I’m slow as an 80 year man with rubber bands around his legs but still, I miss it.

Otherwise I’ve spent the last 48 hours shuffling around like a zombie due to:

1.) ridiculous muscle soreness. my butt hurt, my hamstrings ache and I’m walking like a cowboy. Hilarious.

2.) Being completely floored with exhausted because of an accursed headcold.

Instead of saying “I don’t have time” try saying “it’s not a priority,” and see how that feels. Often, that’s a perfectly adequate explanation. I have time to iron my sheets, I just don’t want to. But other things are harder. Try it: “I’m not going to edit your résumé, sweetie, because it’s not a priority.” “I don’t go to the doctor because my health is not a priority.” If these phrases don’t sit well, that’s the point. Changing our language reminds us that time is a choice. If we don’t like how we’re spending an hour, we can choose differently.
