Feeling...frustrated. I tried to run this morning. I felt great for the first 10 minutes or so and by the time I hit 15 minutes, I had to slow to a walk. I followed doctor's and PT's orders to a T, I took 6 months off, did endless PT exercises and made a slow comeback. To still be injured after all of that is both heartbreaking and infuriating.

Reading... I Am Malala. I've been following Malala Yousafzai's story very closely since she was shot in Pakistan in 2012. Malala is everything that represents what I want to do in life...provide education for adolescent girls in conflict areas across the world. Her story is incredible. It's an easy read and I very, very highly recommend it.

Listening to... Pompeii by Bastille. I love this song. I can't get it out of my head. If this song is 6 months old, I'm sorry. I only just heard it for the first time last week. Other songs I've only just heard? 'Let it Go' and 'Happy.' I don't listen to the radio...ever. #citygirlproblems

Working on... Cleaning out my computer. I started last night. My computer runs so slowly and it's about time I did something about it before it crashes completely.

Drinking... Nothing. I should probably go grab some water.

Watching... Season 2 of Sherlock. Tuesday night I also watched 'The People Versus Larry Flynt' with some friends. Man, that movie was weird.

Anticipating... tomorrow's PT appointment, next week's doctor appointment (with a new doc).

Wishing for... running to not hurt anymore. I'm so insanely annoyed about all of this and seriously starting to wonder whether my doctor knew what he was doing when he diagnosed me without ever taking an MRI. All of this worries me tremendously that I might be out for the rest of the year.

Seeing in DC... no plans yet for this weekend but The Pilot is home and I'm sure we'll get into some kind of adventure!

Loving... that it's almost the weekend. This week has dragged on!

What are you currently doing?


  1. Bummer about your knee, it certainly sounds like it is time for more serious measures to see what is actually happening in there. With the rehab that you already put in it doesn't seem like you should still be in so much pain....
    I love Pompeii too (I actually heard it this winter but haven't gotten sick of it yet!!)

  2. I really hope the new doc can help you. Cross my fingers and toes for you.

  3. If you are experiencing instability - that sensation of "giving way" then you should definitely get an MRI. I am not a physician, but do work in orthopedics, and usually instability points to a structural problem. esp if you've already tried (and failed!) PT! good luck!

  4. Malala rocks! I am currently trying to get through ICU - one of my last rotations in this dietetic internship!

  5. I am so hooked on "Pompeii", and my brother is going to see Bastille at the end of the month in Cleveland! It's a great song. Hahaha I love that you finally heard "Happy" at the Nats game when we were there...just remembered that now and it made me laugh :)

    Do you think they'll take an MRI next week at your doc's appt? I hope you can find an answer for all the pain :(
