How did the achilles work out? It’s been a couple of weeks now. Did you try massage while you were laying off of it??
Next time you have a flare up maybe you could get the name of the Tui-Na practitioner that your mom saw for her shoulder. Tui-Na is amazing if you haven’t tried it. (And, it’s Chinese!)
Hey there! Achilles still sore – have an appt. w/my PT in two weeks (first available). He does massage, too – thinking it’s maybe a calf thing more than a true achilles thing. Can’t figure this one out and I don’t want to make it worse! Did try Tui-Na once and loved it, that’s a good idea too – thanks!
So nice to “see” you again! I enjoyed your chat – I’m always interested in how to eat healthier & possibly sneak that into my kids diets. Dinner is always a struggle with two working out of the home parents, so any tips you might have there would be very welcome! Meal planning is definitely not my forte
Love the afternoon chat and seeing you in my living room!! You sound and look terrific and I liked your topics. How to handle an injury? I’m a bad one to ask because I usually try to work through it for a few days, then I spend a few days whining, and then I take the necessary time off (which by this point is much greater than if I just took the time off initially!). Don’t follow my strategy…obviously! Eating out?? I tend to try whatever I want, but eat less of it (get a to-go box early and pack away half for later.). I don’t have any problem skipping appetizers and dessert, so that helps some. I like your veggie substitute idea, too.
But wait, that’s *my* strategy for managing injuries! Maybe I whine more. I’ve been trying the eating less while eating out strategy lately, too. It’s a habit that’ll take some time for me, I think, but last night I was at one of my favorite restaurants (for Bostonians, it’s Scampo) w/D. and I managed to eat a bit of the pasta I LOVE there and then 1/2 of a salmon dish. Kept w/i my limitations calorie-wise and really enjoyed what I ate. Cheers for small victories! Glad you like the chat, Heidi!
Liked the chat! You have such a warm, welcoming communication style–I felt like I was hanging out with you in your kitchen. (Blue is a nice color on camera and you look so pretty. Did wonder what the white and green thing on your counter is! Maybe add a bowl of fruit to your “set”) I think it needs to be shorter. And I would have liked to have a little clue as to the subject-matter. Having said all that, I watched from beginning to end!
Here are a few of my ideas–I start thinking about dinner at lunchtime, so a great recipe or new ingredient you’re playing with. I am always interested in chemicals! And new research about what’s in our foods that we may or may not know about; benefits of one food over another or interesting food substitutions for enhancing diet and well-being.
Thank you for sharing YOU with US! Love that you’re always up to new stuff.
Yay! This is GREAT feedback, Amanda – just the sort I was looking for. Thanks for such a thoughtful comment. I’m taking them to heart, for sure. Look for changes in the next chat video – maybe later this week. And BTW, the “set” is just my kitchen desk – that white/green thing is a notepad cube and the jumble of wires are from the house phone and my laptop charging cord. Not glamorous, but it’s the REAL Semi-Sweet setup. I love the idea of props. Now the wheels are turning . . . . thanks again!
Love the chat – so fun to see you LIVE! Not something I can watch during my work day usually – it is probably blocked – but I always love to read your thoughts and ideas about nutrition and fitness – so a chat is another great avenue and I get to see your smiling face
Aww, thanks, Tina!
