I got the boot today!

Thursday, March 08, 2012

I am home with the boot the Dr. gave me. It hurt like crazy trying to take the first steps. It is hard to believe how you can walk on a broken leg a little over a week later. I can't tell you how good it feels to walk around but I still haven't given up my one crutch yet for balance. She also told me I had to hold off on exercising for a while. emoticon It will probably be enough exercise trying to get around...

Good Luck reaching Your Goals!!

Gloomy Days always get me down.

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

It is cloudy and foggy in my part of the world. I look out my living room window and I just want to go back to sleep. It's been a week now since I have had to have my foot elevated. Tomorrow I see the Dr. and she will check and see if my broken leg is healing. Hopefully I will get a walking cast but my break is down by my ankle and she was unsure. I just want to get moving again!

Good Luck reaching Your Goals!!

    Reminds me of the Carpenter's song "Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get Me Down"! And as Ania says, you may get a new pair of "shoes". That always perk me up! Hope you get a good report.

    I am sorry Cindy that you're not seeing much emoticonIf you were here you'd see it from your window. At least when you're sleeping you're not eating. emoticonHope your dr sees an improvement & you'll get a boot to wear. emoticon

Day 5..

Monday, March 05, 2012

I have fat turtle toes. Will this swelling ever go down? I still can't believe I broke my leg. I miss not working out and doing the things I like to do. One of my SP friends suggested doing a sitting workout. I've decided to look for one on the web today. Hopefully on Thursday the Dr. will give me the go a head when I get the splint cast off and they either give me a boot or a cast...I pray its a boot!!

Thanks for the ideas on how to keep myself in the best shape while I am broken!

    A sitting workout is a great idea! SP even has a bunch to choose from. It is *no* fun to have a broken leg; take care of yourself! Wishing you a very speedy recovery! Good luck on getting a boot :-) emoticon

I'm broken...

Sunday, March 04, 2012

This past Wednesday the Dr. put a splint cast on my ankle/leg. I fell down the stairs in my house on Tuesday night and I was just hoping it was a sprain. Not so lucky....This Thursday I see the Dr. again and am hoping I will get a walking boot instead of a cast. The cast will drive me crazy with my restless leg syndrome. Anyway.....what does one do to not totally deteriorate when you have to be on the couch for 8 days with your leg up? I can't put any weight on my left foot at all. Leg lifts and arm weights are the only thing I can think of. Any suggestions? Also, how do you not gain weight just sitting here. Of course, I am eating less but this is sure putting a dent in to what I have been trying to accomplish living a healthy life style.

    Hi Cindy -

since I have some issues with arthritis in my knees I know how hard it can be to exercise when you're not moving. I was given this link by another Spark Friend - its a seated cardio program. Maybe it can help.

love your background picture - is this near where you live or have you traveled there?

Normally Monday is my weigh in day. I just got back from a 10 vacation and I didn't lose but gained back 3.5 pounds. This makes me very happy since I would of normally gained a lot more. There was a lot of fresh fish available and we hit only one buffet. People say they lose weight on vacation because of all the walking etc...wished that would of been me and I say more power to those who do lose weight! P.S. I did a lot of walking and snorkeling.
