I'm walkin', yes indeed....

Thursday, March 14, 2013

I am currently writing this from high atop my treadmill, using the TrekDesk treadmill desk that hubby ordered and I finally got put together. So far I've been walking for 45 minutes while working and Sparking. The idea isn't that it replaces a workout, but that it gets us away from hours of sedentary office work.

I'm liking it, and will be trading off with hubby so we can both get a chance to use it. I'm about to start one of my contract projects, which require a lot of time at the computer, and this will make that time feel much more productive.

    My husband is all about standing whenever possible. He wants a standing desk and we are saving up to buy one. As a programmer, he spends hours sitting. To break it up he often goes to the local coffee shop and stands at the high counter to work.

How fast a pace can you maintain while walking on the treadmill? I can see myself using something like that, losing track of what I'm doing and tripping myself up. "Grace" is not my middle name.

    That is so cool! I read an article about the Cleveland Clinic's chief medical officer having that in his office, it made me want one. Have a good weekend!

    That is a great idea. I often come home from a great workout and find myself at the computer for hours feeling as though I have just lost that long burn I had worked up to.

Working out while broken

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

I have managed to put on 15 pounds in about 5 days--quite shocking, but I know that it's water weight from eating too many salty things in my frustration at getting injured. I've already dropped 6 of those pounds, so I'm not panicking.

For the last two days I have gone to the gym and gotten on the elliptical for 50 minutes. This seems to be helping with the tailbone. My theory is, that particular area doesn't usually get much in the line of blood flow, so it's really slow in healing bruised tissue. But the elliptical moves it more that other activities, and without a lot of jarring impact. So even though it can't speed up healing the bone fracture much, it can help to heal the contused flesh. So I think it's helping.

Shake my tail feathers

Sunday, March 10, 2013

The pain level on this is making no sense to me. Yesterday I had almost no pain, but in the night I was really sore. Today I started sore, but got enough better that I went for a short bike ride--it was almost 70 degrees out, so I could hardly NOT go outside!

But as I was prepping to bike, daughter was prepping to go snowboarding. So we took a picture that totally encapsulated what March is all about at our house:

    I'm amazed you were able to ride your bike! I hope it went well. We had a high of around 43 here and rain ALL day....at least it's melting the snow.

Tailbone is officially broken. Not displaced so no surgery, but considerable trauma.

    So sorry! I can't imagine. Does that mean you have to be in a wheelchair and can't walk until you heal?

Struggling back to normal

Sunday, March 03, 2013

Hubby is doing well, but still isn't allowed to drive. Today I fell while skiing and reinjured my tailbone. Now he's taking care of me. Wow.

    It's good to know that hubby is still improving, but I am so so sorry that you have hurt yourself. Sore tailbones are NO fun at all, no matter how you hurt it.

It's great that your hubby is well enough now that he can help you !

Hope you are feeling better quickly!!

Hugs,
Kathy
