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.
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)?
