Fitness Friday: Road to Recovery Part 2

Posted in Fitness

I have to admit that I really thought that by now I would be able to put weight on my ankle, but alas, that it is not the case. The good news is that I am making progress. This week, the swelling has really gone down as has the pain level. Those improvements have lead to more ankle and foot mobility which is wonderful. Rehab is painful, but progress is being made. Flexing exercises aren’t nearly as painful, and I can flex much further than last week. I have a little side to side movement which was non-existent last week.…

Fitness Friday: Road to Recovery Part 1

Posted in Fitness

It’s been roughly 2 1/2 weeks since I suffered my high ankle sprain. I’m still on crutches and unable to put any weight on the ankle. It’s been a frustrating time, but I am making some progress.

Little did I realize at the time how critical these skills would become to help take care of our daily needs. I’ve been off my feet for two weeks now, and during this…

Thankful Thursday: Bed Rest

Posted in Family, and Thoughts

It’s been a long time since I’ve written a Thankful Thursday post, but I really needed to focus on my blessings today. I’ve been on bed rest for a little over a week now. Due to the pain and meds, I’m not really able to focus on reading which is my normal go-to when I’m sick and not able to do anything. I’m frustrated with not being able to do even the simplest of tasks at this point in time. Needless to say, I’m feeling annoyed and out of sorts. It’s time to focus on the good rather than the…
