Time Will Tell

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on January 13, 2009

Good evening!

Can I just say once again what amazing readers I have???

Honestly! I was so awestruck by all the amazing comments and get well soon wishes that were left on this afternoon’s post. I read each and everyone of them as I was waiting in the ER room (on my blackberry!). Thank you all. You brought so many smiles to my face. I kept thinking how lucky I am to have such an amazing support system on this website.

Exciting news to report to you all finally!

So just in case you couldn’t watch that video, I basically communicated 3 things:

  • The doctor said my injury is most likely a strained groin muscle. He said give it rest for 5-7 days and it should be better. Key word should. If it isn’t, I will be going to see my regular GP next week. Let’s hope I heal quickly! I am really worried that I have really hurt myself and may not be able to run anymore. I don’t know what I would do if that was the case. I just have to stay positive. I will be doing lots of rest and eating tons of healthy foods in the meantime. Bring on the fruits, veggies, and healthy fats.
  • An exciting food package arrived today! Honest Foods was kind enough to donate a huuuge box of food products to giveaway as contests on Oh She Glows! More to come on that tomorrow!
  • Lastly, I showed my new voice recorder and talked about how much I have been using it already. :)

Stay tuned tomorrow for the big contest reveal!


Want to see a bad mood in the making? My drive to work this morning (Eric was driving- not me don’t worry!). I was in pain and we were stuck in winter storm traffic. Fun times…


We got stuck behind the snow plows for a good 45 mins….


Moving on…..!

Dinner tonight was just what the doctor ordered…a plate full of nutrients.

Butternut squash with pepper and cinnamon:


The last of my beloved Squash and Chickpea Moroccan Stew  [with a dallop of hummus and organic salsa). I also has some Mary’s Organic Crackers (Onion) on the side for dipping. Delicious!


You must make this recipe!!! I will be making it again for sure. So so good.


If this doesn’t heal me, I don’t know what will! :D


Ok, I know I promised the Golden Globes Best and Worst dressed today, but things got a bit sidelined. I promise it will come tomorrow!

Also, up tomorrow…the big contest reveal….and a Honest Foods product Video Review! An update on new Oh She Glows website features, and much more!

Poll of the Day:

Yesterday’s results:


I’m off to read in bed and plan the exciting contest giveaway! Nighty night.

Good news definitely! Don’t worry you’ll be running soon! Get some rest and p.s the honest foods look delish!!!


Kath January 13, 2009 at 9:10 pm

SCORE on the Honest Foods loot!! You got 3x as much as I did!


VeggieGirl January 13, 2009 at 9:51 pm

Thank goodness you’ll be okay!! I was über-worried!! Rest up and eat well, for sure :-)

**Just as a heads up: I will not be able to comment on blogs as often now, during this semester, due to work overload (I’m stressed already) – PLEASE know that I’m still loyally reading, but just won’t have time to comment. I hope you understand!!

haha i am embarrassed to say i also pulled my groin muscle, once (i was a gymnast when i was a child). it got better within a week, and i think everything was back to normal after like 10 days. (of course i had no idea why i was aching so i kept doing whatever i was doing anyway. lol.)

hope you feel better :)


Hangry Pants January 13, 2009 at 10:22 pm

Angela, So glad it wasn’t something too serious! Take care of yourself. :D


Raspberry Runner January 13, 2009 at 10:23 pm

those honest foods look delicious! and i love how you put hummus in your stew! i eat hummus pretty much everyday, but i’ve never put it in a stew before…


Sana January 13, 2009 at 10:26 pm

Glad you are on your way to get better!!!

I was wondering of you could help out other college students like myself come up with a plan to start eating better?

It has been a struggle for me and I would like some advice. Thanks!!!!!!!


Jen January 13, 2009 at 10:28 pm

Hi Ang….I hope you are back in action soon!! Hey..have you thought about setting ohsheglows as a page or group to join on facebook? If you do I’d love to add you to my profile (spreads like hotfire out there)…..


Priyanka January 13, 2009 at 10:31 pm

hey Angela just checked on your post..I am glad you are doing fine now. Just take it easy and you’ll be back in action in no time!


Hayley January 13, 2009 at 10:33 pm

Ah, glad to hear some fairly positive news from the doc. Honest Foods?! How exciting! I first saw them on Kath’s blog and have been wanting to try them ever since. I went to their website and was really disappointed to find out that not only do they not sell their products in Canada, but they don’t ship to anywhere but the States. Can’t wait to find out what the contest is. :)


Melissa January 13, 2009 at 10:37 pm

so glad your okay. not being able to workout is a bummer, but definitely better than other health scares. Make sure to get sunlight to keep your vitamin d up!


Halie January 13, 2009 at 11:02 pm

Happy to read you are gonna be okay!

Excited to read about the contest!


Charlie Hills January 14, 2009 at 1:01 am

Ugh, that weather looks awful. Glad I moved many, many miles south of that. Hang in there with the injury! Get well soon!


Leah January 14, 2009 at 2:21 am

Well looks like you will be getting tons of rest to heal up that muscle of yours! I think we definitely take things for granted – i’ll be listening to my ‘inner voice’ if its saying I need a rest!!

Great package you got in the mail today. Yum!

I just watched the video for that stew… I think we’re going to make it sometime in the next week!


Michelle January 14, 2009 at 7:31 am

YUM – I’ve never tried anything by Honest Foods – but now I can’t wait! If I don’t win the contest I will head straight for Whole Foods.

My boyfriend is a runner also and recently strained his groin. I know how painful it is, so be sure to rest up and heal quickly!

Take Care! kaneil

Sorry about the injury. I guess you can ignore my last comment about diagnose.
