Guess what?!?!?


I got to do ball squats at PT on Friday- not much but its pretty exciting! =)

walking more without the crutches now but still limping badly- all of my muscles are weak on that leg and my ankle (which a severely sprained a few years ago, that leg of course) is tight making walking harder. I'm thinking I may invest in an awesome massage to help work out the scar tissue issues I have.

Awesome! I love ball squats. Although I don't usually get that excited about them. Congrat! Give yourself some time. You know that recovery is a slow process and we athletes tend to push it. Listen to your body.

While I was doing them I kept thinking, "why haven't I been including these into my usual routine?" they seem like a great alternative to front or hack squats)front squats feel awkward to me and my gym doesn't have a hack squat machine).

yea I'm not pushing it and don't plan on doing any leg stuff until I'm 100 percent better and my docs give me the go ahead and once they do that I'm going to start with a trainer (who trains figure) so I'm headed in the right direction and wont risk re-injury.

(ps thanks for the email!)

Saw my ortho. today. He told me I can completely ditch the crutches now, still not allowed to do any gym stuff. Which I'm okay with, I know I need to take it slow and rehab it all the way.

My workouts are kinda maintenance at this point- I'm still trying to push myself in the gym but my minds just not in it with all of the stress with my hip and school has me studying almost every waking moment. Crunch time before graduation (in May) and I'm feeling it!!!! I'm simply exhausted...

Great news! Focus on recovery right now. Plenty of time for building later.

I keep reminding myself of that Paige =)

Today I was told I can start including the elliptical in my workouts so I did 10mins. I could have gone longer since my hip didn't really hurt but my foot is beyond killing me!

Thanks! yea, I'm glad to be rid of the crutches!! makes getting to classes a bit easier (getting around in general). I think my foot is just bothering me from not using it for a while- plus it's never really been 100% since my horrible sprain (not that it ever will be...). I've been icing it and stretching it like crazy!

still need to work on being more consistent with my stretching afterward- also thinking of making Sunday a yoga/stretch day

good news- I passed my first statistics exam!! its really been stressing me out! If I fail this class I can't get my masters this May and would have to wait until next January to take the class again. I've been studying my butt off- so the gym (and my diet a bit) are coming in a bit second. Just keep telling myself it will all be over in May =)

changed my routine up a bit- just getting bored with it not being able to do legs... for now anyway here it is
biceps/shoulders
back
Triceps/chest

20 mins on the elliptical today!!!!!!!!!! that's about all I have to say about that =)

diet this week will most likely be rough since I'm going to Chicago and have every intention of hitting the dinner there
