Not so fast...
After posting my last blog post, I headed out to therapy and told Jennifer (my PT) everything the orthopedic surgeon said and she had a slightly different take on it. As she put it, running with my knee issues is not a great idea, but at the sam... Read more
Long time, no blog
So, there's been a lot going on with me lately. I suppose that isn't really a surprise. Usually when someone "drops out" for a while, it's because there's a lot going on.
First of all, I've been busy with work, which doesn't leave me with a... Read more
I want my toe back
Did anyone else tell the "I want my toe back" story at slumber parties or campfires?
One thing I'm not sure I mentioned is that my PT arranged for me to get a home TENS/stim pack for at least a month, with an option to buy it. Doing the el... Read more
What I most want to do right now is also what I fear most
I want to go running. It's a beautiful day with a clear, sunny sky. I mean, based on the temperature, it's also a freakin' cold day (46 deg), but that just means that I'd wear long pants and a long sleeved shirt. Heck, it was almost that cold wh... Read more
Bloggity blog blog
Today is pay day so I celebrated having money again with a cafeteria lunch. I tried out the new Cooking Light offering again. Today was pan seared tilapia, mashed potatoes with shallot parsley butter, and spicy corn. It was very good, but I'm no... Read more
Cooking Light at my workplace!
I was just served my lunch by the Executive Chef of "Cooking Light" magazine, Billy Strynkowski! The company I work for (actually the company the company I work for works for- I'm an onsite supplier) is introducing a new "Cooking Light" station ... Read more
Great fall weekend (pictures)
I made that chicken and butternut tagine on Friday and I have to say it was pretty incredible. Apparently, "warming spices" are a hallmark of Moroccan food and this suits me just fine! I like spicy, but I kind of hate hot. Hot spice always seems... Read more
More of the same- in a good way
I seem to talk about the same subjects all the time lately. It's all PT blah ankle blah blah food blah blah blah. But this is my life lately, so what else should I blog about, right?
Today was my last morning PT appointment. From now on, I ... Read more
So much better
The last three days have done so much to make up for what a lousy month October has been so far. To recap, I started out the month with the timing chain in my car breaking and causing catastrophic engine damage, then I developed tendinitis in my... Read more

I want to get physical- therapy, that is!
So, when I last blogged, I had just visited my doctor and gotten a diagnosis of peroneal tendinitis/sprained ankle, and was referred to physical therapy. The PT department of the health center was booked up until early November, so I had to find... Read more
Saw the doctor this morning
I had my doctor's visit this morning for my ankle. He evaluated it and recommended I continue with PRICE (now with extra P!), increase my dosage of ibuprofen, and get some formal physical therapy. If therapy doesn't improve the situation, I'll g... Read more
Listening to my better angels
So, I've got an appointment with my doctor tomorrow morning. Yesterday, I had glimpses of blue skies in my own personal storm. I felt pretty good. I could walk without a noticeable limp. I didn't feel like I needed to wear my neoprene brace for ... Read more

Yet another reason to love the gym
I feel the need to post a non-ankle related blog entry, but there's nothing either good or interesting to say about the nutritional part of my recent actions. Let's just say cookies and pizza have me saying "What in tarnation, Tootsie Pop?" a bi... Read more
