Thanks everyone! I've been doing alright. A bit sore and using crutches is frustrating!!!! especially in the snow...
I was supposed to start my 8 week Physical therapy program this week but because of snow I have to start next week. I'll be in PT 3 times a week =( should be fun....
I was able to manage to get to the gym again on Monday and plan on going maybe M-W-F but at least Monday and Wednesday when I don't have any classes, maybe before I go to PT. As long as I don't put any weight on my right leg I can do whatever I want there, which is mostly machines for the time being since I can't carry weights and use the crutches at the same time. But other regulars at my gym offered to help me if I needed it. I had a lot of people starring at me on Monday when I was working out on crutches. maybe I lit the flame under some of their butts, lol.
side ramble- being on crutches I've had to use the elevator more and never realized how many lazy completely capable people wait to use the elevator when the staircase is right next to them...unbelievable!!
I had the post op and all went well, unfortunately my x-ray showed signs of impingement on the left side too which eventually could cause some of the same issue I've been having and explain by lack of flexibility in my hips and most likely my back pain. The doc said we'll wait to determine if I need to have surgery to correct the left side as well, if so hopefully it can wait awhile! I meet with him again sometime in March for another follow up.
I've decided that this year my main fitness goals are: stretch more (this is most likely my biggest downfall and is certainly not helping prevent injuries), increase my endurance, and of course grow.
and in life: just do and see all the things I've always wanted to do and see but for some reason just put off- even the little things. I guess live more in the moment. With school as my focus its been very easy to have tunnel vision and not relax as I should.
another side note: has anyone heard of or tried this bread?http://julianbakery.com/low-carb-bread/ ... om-heaven/
