Catching Up!

Hello, hello! How was your weekend?!

Last week, I left my laptop at home, so I had to take a quick hiatus from the blogging world. But, I’m back now, so don’t you worry. 🙂 I have a healthy recipe and a simple DIY planned to share with you this week, so definitely check back for those.

Goodbye boot! You are not missed.

Great news! My MRI results showed that I don’t actually have a stress fracture. After nearly a month of wearing the boot, I got to say goodbye to it. Now I am going to physical therapy and doing exercises at home. I’ve only been to one appointment, but my foot feels infinitely better. I cannot believe it, and I am extremely happy! My PT said she’ll have me out run/walking within the next couple of weeks and then I’ll be able to transition back to running.

She has me doing bodyweight calf raises and a variety of other exercises, and my calves were on fire the next day. It’s crazy how quickly you lose your fitness, but I know my old fitness level will come back relatively quickly. For now, I’m still going to my swim classes twice a week, and I hope to continue that even after I can run.

I keep telling myself that it’s good to get out of my comfort zone!

Getting on schedule

I’ve been using my stress fracture as an excuse to not workout. I know the rest of my body is fully capable of exercise, but I  have been slacking. Enough is enough. I put together a workout schedule to follow until I get the ok from my PT to start introducing running into my schedule again.

Weekly workout plan

My goal with my workout schedule is to get back into the habit of making exercise a priority. I feel so much better when I workout!

Question of the Day

  • How do you get back into your workout schedule after an injury or time off (like a vacation)?
