My lunch today was so lovely! I had four tiny slices of some whole grain, organic (I think), rosemary and olive oil (I think :P) bread from Harris Teeter, topped each with some hummus, a slice of ham, and 1/4 slice of cheese. Micro-waved for about 40 seconds and it was DIVINE. I had a large apple on the side as well 🙂
In knee news, my workout felt good. I did a lot of thinking and I came to the conclusion: I’M DOING TOO MUCH. Some days I’m working out for 2.5-almost 3 hours. That’s not healthy for me! My young and growing body doesn’t need all that stress! Ding dong Jess. I’ve decided I’m probably going to stick to three days of intense basketball and then have three other days of stretching, strengthening, and biking/stair stepper/elliptical. I think my knees starting to talk to me are my body’s way of saying, “Jess, you’re doing a too much. Let’s not get too carried away. Slow it down!” It’s all good, folks!
I received a postcard from the super, super awesome Emma! The note was SO sweet and the postcard was beautiful. Thanks so much Emma! I’m only posting the front because I don’t want the whole world to see where we live, haha 🙂
I then iced my knee, and after I was done, I noticed my knee where I iced it looked very odd. It was almost like I got some sort of freezer burn! The pack was only on for like 20-30 minutes! The area was white and TOTALLY numb. Scared me alright! I just rubbed and rubbed and rubbed to generate some sort of heat. Went away, but…weird!
I then promptly, after reading Proverbs of course :D, fell asleep for two hours. 😯
I awoke and ran downstairs to find a beautiful meal in the works. Within minutes I was at the table with a lovely plate of healthy food in front of me. Thank you G’ma! On my plate sat: a small baked potato, fresh green beans, salad (consisting of raspberry vinaigrette, a romaine blend, walnuts, feta, and strawberries), a few slices of cranberry, and some swiss-mushroom chicken. The plate was so colorful and delicious. I enjoyed every bite 😀 Oh, plus a glass of milk. Duhhh 😉
The boy’s home!!! We’re getting together tomorrow. I’m so excited!

Verse of the Day: (Because it’s late and because I’m tired, I’m going to use verseoftheday.com again!) Matthew 25: 37-40
"Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’"
Happy Saturday Loves!!
