Sidelined & Spaghetti Pie Pix

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

I am sorry to say I am still in pain after my fall off the ladder on August 16th. Actually, everything is better from the ladder fall, but apparently I altered my gait and my slow miles on the treadmill and on our city trail have caused a huge pain & strain in my right glute.

The chiropractor said my pelvis isn't "even" so he did an adjustment that about killed me. I don't feel any better today. I walked the 1/10 mile to our mailbox and my right hip is absolutely throbbing. This is SO not good!

In the old days I would have welcomed an excuse to avoid exercise, but not anymore! Now I feel totally punished!! So it looks like a day with my book and television. Hopefully It won't take long for this to heal, I've got a lot of working out to do to prepare for hiking in the Annapurna mountains in 6 weeks!

PS - the Spaghetti Pie recipe (from Sunday's blog) was AWESOME! It made a 9x11 pan's worth and I added nutritional yeast to the top. Six large pieces, about 125/calories per piece.

    I feel for you! I can't imagine the punishment of not being allowed to walk!

    Hope you feel better SOON!

    Damn - sorry to hear how hobbled you are. No fun at all but you have it right - get it healed!

    I'm going to check out that recipe and hopefully give it a try. I've been in such a rut lately and have been looking for something new like that.

    Take care!!

    Ackkkkk! No fun to be in pain. Hope that you heal quickly and can be ready for your next adventure and hike. Sure is great to be dreading not exercising than dreading to exercise! Yay!!! The spaghetti looks great!

    Pain does have a tendency to rule.

    Have you though of doing some gentle stretches. I know you are healing, but perhaps a massage and a bit of movement to increase blood flow will help you to heal. That said do take the time to heal fully, the last thing you would want is to start all over with the healing process.

    Isn't it funny how we do a complete 180 on exercise. From being unwilling to get out of the chair to being unwilling to sit in it is an interesting journey. Having said that, I am SO SORRY that this fall has done you in. Been there, didn't like it either. I discovered with my last fall (which was November 2013) that it took about 6 months for me to feel completely right again. You will probably heal much more quickly than that, but try to be patient and kind with yourself.

    YOu may recall I put in about 2 months with a sore left leg (doing everything I could figure out myself) and then saw a physio trained in Graston technique. Two session, miracle cure . . . might be worth a try??

    I would also find not being able to exercise very difficult! But healing is priority #1!

    Oh, I'm so sorry about that. I can totally understand that being sidelined like that makes you feel like you're being punished. Maybe not today, but going forward did the chiropractor suggest gentle movement, like some very easy stretches, maybe yoga. Not the pretzel-twisting kind, just basic yoga maybe? I'm using yoga to aid me with my neck (beginning arthritis and slipped disks from a lifetime doing desk work) and it's doing wonders for me. Maybe your messed up hip would like that too :)
    Be well, SparkFriend.
