My fitness goals have hit a snag...I mean telephone pole ;(

Monday, January 07, 2013

Here is a pic of me, smiling- on January 1st...

I was happy because I was sledding with my friends, having fun & being active- had in fact done a good hour long hike earlier that day,
& had been to the gym with my daughter the day before.

I was on a nice streak of fitness...then, WHAM!

I hit a telephone pole with both knees on the way down a fairly large hill (name of the street I was sledding on is Prospect Hill, to give you an idea...)

One- I am lucky to be alive, it could have been my head.
Two- nothing is broken!
Three-I am so much better than I was !

But, it is hard to walk/bend my healing knees. The bruises were so bad & knees were so swollen I looked like I had gout!
Crazy looking, like not my legs at all. I will spare you That picture. But the swelling has gone down, & I have knee-caps again.
I even slept without the big band-aid last night.

So, I have not exercised, & I have treated myself with extra chocolates.

But I feel guilty , & wish I had my arm weights here in my office because I would do some curls.
I need to do something.

& next time I go sledding, it will be in a safer place!!

  emoticon Wow! I saw your comment on Morticiaaddams' page and wondered what was up so I came by to check. So glad you are OK! Don't beat yourself up about the chocolates and excercise. You'll get back on your feet (literally and figeratively) soon. emoticon Glad you are feeling better, emoticon just take it one day at time.

    Ouch! I'm glad you are healing though. The developing countries have the right idea in going straight to cell phones instead of putting in landlines too; telephone poles are a hazard. Just look at how many accidents they cause each year by jumping in front of unsuspecting drivers and sledders lol!

    At least you didn't Sonny Bono! Bet you were having a blast until the irresistable force met the unmoveable object.

However, thanks to you am listening to my favorite Elvis Costello good things come from bad...
