So most of you know I received my stem cell injection in my knee last Wednesday, I have been instructed to “take it easy” for the next couple of weeks.
If you know me well, you know I don’t do sitting around very well. That being said, I want this to work, so I have been trying to rest more than usual.
Well, this morning, I just did my normal routine, deciding to pop those quick Low Carb Blueberry Muffins in the oven before my shower, and when I got out and went to check on them, my knee was already swollen!!
So I sat with some ice on my knee while I consumed that muffin as part of my breakfast. I have to give Lillie over at Listotic for the recipe! These came out moist and with a lovely texture, not very sweet, might should have left them to brown a little longer.
I may have to tweak the recipe a bit to add more flavor, they were alright with my last couple of sips of bulletproof coffee. Just being honest here.
I need to get back on track, the hubby has been off for a week or so and I have been cheating a little bit too much. 😉
These muffins fit the bill when you are tired of eggs with 7 g of protein and 8g of carbs. Combined with a cheese stick and 4 pieces of hard salami (0 carbs total) that is a pretty low carb breakfast choice.
So you might ask what all did I do to get my knee so swollen…not much! Fed the animals, watered the plants, threw in a load of laundry, checked my emails, emptied the cat’s litter box, and made the muffins.
Wait, I also made my ACV tea, then my coffee, and ran out to put a garbage can to the curb. Later, I had to take another small bag out there. That’s all!
Of course, I cleaned the sink a couple of times too, took my shower and then sat back down to eat and ice and write this post. Once that’s done I have a couple of errands to run, but I will wear my brace for that, then come home and write some more.
That IS an easy Monday for me, honestly. I also aim to get in the pool and exercise my legs in a nice, no impact kind of way. Surely the dr would approve of that!
Yall have a marvelous Monday, and do try those Low Carb Blueberry muffins. Click the link above for Lillie’s recipe. Let me know how you like them. 😊
