First things first. I went for my orthopedic visit yesterday and had xrays done. Said my ankle is healing. It definitely doesn't hurt as bad as when I saw him 3 weeks before but sometimes it will ache. I feel like it's way better and I'm just an... Read more

Well, last week I started lifting weights with the Chalean Extreme program. I decided to do this while my husband ran, since I still cannot do that. I can't do anything with any cardio right now. I can walk farther and a little faster this past ... Read more

Coming Along

Friday, August 23, 2013      3 comments

I've been walking "normally" since last Thursday. Slowly, but surely my injury is healing. I find that I do tend to walk better without the brace on my foot since it kind of impedes normal walking, but I prefer to do what the doctor says ;) I am... Read more

After 3 days on crutches, I went without today. Only had a brace on my ankle and I made it. I don't do alot of walking around at work, so that helps. I ordered a stronger brace and it's supposed to arrive tomorrow, so I'm hoping that will work f... Read more

Have you ever thought about how much energy and time we spend on worrying about people? Like what they think? What they do to others or to you? How much drama is generated by some? Why do we do that? I try to stop the frenzy at work when p... Read more
