I always said I wanted a day to do nothing...

...and I got it...and about 14 others just like it :) The recovery to my bunion surgery requires me to be off my feet for more than two weeks. Normally, I would be in an absolute dither b/c I couldn't clean, get up and around, etc. But, SP has taught me about acceptance regarding my weight loss, etc... so I'm applying the same principles. I have my laptop, some great books, my phone, and my cat...My 'recovery room' (living room) looks as if a bomb went off, but when I accept that it's only temporary, I can just sit back and relax. It's amazing, I have used this site for sooooo m any other things besides weight loss and healthy eating - thanks SP!

    Glad to hear you are doing better. I like how you are handling the stay still time. It's hard to not get up and do something
    (which in turn makes things take longer to heal). Stay put and heal quick. While you are idle you can think on the great questions of the universe, like "why don't they make mouse-flavoured cat food?" ha ha

    Focus on the end result. You will have less foot pain and increased mobility. Be careful of those tempting snack while you are "resting" and do some upper body exercises to burn a few calories!

    Enjoy the forced relaxation - it won't last long. When you are up and about just remember you don't have to catch up on everything the first day. I'm glad you are accepting it so well.

    God Bless
