Well, I walked today. 1/4 of a mile.
Doesn't sound like much, but it IS a start. Again. I was walking about 3-4 miles a day, feeling great, but started having a nagging pain in my ankle. Which became worse.
Until I couldn't walk without a cane.
I finally bit the proverbial bullet, and went to the Doc, who told me it was tendinitis. She sent me to a Physical Therapist. I went a couple times, then had to stop, because my Dad was having surgery, and Mom needed wheels, (read: me.) So, I sort of just stopped.
Stopped exercising, stopped eating well, just sort of went into stall mode.
I haven't gained much, but I have gained. I started getting down, again, which is what made me start exercising in the first place. So, today I walked a quarter mile. I feel a little pain, but it's manageable. I won't increase it until the pain stops. I will start doing some other exercises, sit ups, leg lifts, any thing that I can think of that isn't ankle related. Get back into my weight lifting, the one thing I have sort of kept up on. Having been able to graduate to larger weights, I don't want to go back down again. (Big macho 10 pounders! Grunt, grunt)
So, I am not sure what the future holds, but hopefully I can get my little red wagon started up and rolling again...
On the bright side, the PT noticed there is a slight discrepancy in the length of my two legs, and I now have a lift in one shoe, which seems to have helped a lot...
