1 - Goal is 10 minutes on the rebounder daily.
The reality is that today I got in about 1 1/2 minutes before my leg started hurting. I guess the stress fracture is not quite healed. The rebounder is pretty low impact though so I pushed on a bit. Got in 4 minutes. That's about 480 steps. Really not what I wanted to manage, but it's a start. I can remember when I could barely get two minutes in so I am not going to complain too much.
Not sure how much I will get done tomorrow as I have a doctor's appt and will have to get a bit of grocery shopping in afterwards so my leg might not hold out for rebounding, too. We'll see.

2. Menu - I am working on adding a new food every day, and I'm sort of back to default because of the false positives. So today I added Beef and it seemed to be ok. I haven't been tracking on SP but I have been keeping a spread sheet of foods and reactions. I printed that out for my doctor's visit tomorrow.

3. How I'm doing? Well, I've got a bit more energy today than I have been having. I got the watering done and picked peas, and spent a bit of time outside. I have less pain than I did, though the return of the stress fracture site pain is worrysome. I wonder how long it will take that to heal? I haven't been taking the calcium supplements yet. I have held off on adding very many things in case the allergy is also a supplement.

I did shorten my sleep today a bit, hoping I can go to bed tonight and sleep well and wake up in the morning. Wish me luck.

    Were the false positives found through skin test or muscle testing?

    I know you are eager to get active again, but do please be careful not to reinjure.


    I think you're doing great - hopefully the doctor will agree! :)

    Here's to the light at the end of the tunnel that is eating well without worries about random allergic reactions and working out without worsening an injury!

    Has the Dr. approved the rebounder? I know it's fairly low impact on joints, but thought it was more impact, than just walking - on overall ? You have to give that stress fracture a lot of time.

    But, you are doing pretty well so far. And trying to add food back in...did you even realize how many things you have to take into consideration!? Sort of mind boggling, isn't it?

    Sending you healing good wishes and a prayer. emoticon
