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!!
