from the broken ankle tour bus
Thursday, January 31, 2013
well, i have to amuse myself somehow.
i am 2.5 weeks into the at least 7 week (keeping fingers crossed) broken ankle interment. just doing the simplest of things is EXHAUSTING. i am supposed to stay off it but have to go to the bathroom, let the dogs out and get food. my dh fills my water bottle every night, making that easier.
i am tired of frozen food, though it is the quickest to make and therefore keeps me on my feet for the least amount of time.
the upsides to this...because i can't get up often and carrying anything with the crutches is a bit of a feat, i am not overeating and i can tell i am still losing weight. i weighed the morning i broke my ankle and won't get back on the scale until at least 7 weeks after that. long stretch. and while i missed clocking my food a day or two, i am doing well staying on target by and medium (avoiding the large concept!).
another one is that i am resolving a number of issues that have been hanging around like bats in a cave for too long. so each day i seem to be getting another commission done and sent out or a maintenance issue resolved. reading some books, working on the periphery of revamping my business.
i also signed up for the free trial of sparkcoach. i am surprised that it is only $48 a year to subscribe. i might do that. i will see how good i am about signing in each day. i also noticed that there is a chair workout video that i will check out when dh goes back to work on monday. he has to find my hand weights for me.
i wonder if, when i am finally free again, if i will wish that i had more time. clearly i am losing lucidity.
one of the commissions i finished up.
