This ankle is getting me down despite trying to put a good face on things. I was missing my parents yesterday and sad. Today I was trying to figure out a way to go swim but realized that having my hubby drop me off meant I'd be there way too lon... Read more

My broken ankle has made me slow down whether I like it or not. And I don't really like it. I went to a conference on Saturday to learn more about WordPress. Unfortunately, it wasn't very helpful despite there being a beginner's track (whi... Read more

I'm slowly able to walk more and have probably pushed it. I was able to get around without pain on Tuesday, but hubby nagged me about putting the boot on and I complied...reluctantly. I've got a variety of different colors on my foot, ankl... Read more
A visit to the orthopedist and Never Forget
Monday, September 11, 2017      5 comments

I got in to see the orthopedist today @ UC Davis. I'm now in a boot and more immobilized - which is okay. The air cast I was in wasn't much support and also made my leg sweat and itch. This is what I've been using to get around. I put my knee... Read more

I've always been independent to the extreme and I find it really hard to ask for help of any kind. This has brought a whole new level of complication to managing with this broken ankle. And it's only been 2 days.... ... Read more

...because I slipped while trying to get into a kayak yesterday and fell ON MY ANKLE. I never was able to kayak and had to spend the rest of the day with my foot up and iced. Luckily, I had brought a zero gravity chair and our group had lots of ... Read more

I'm really trying to track EVERYTHING this week. And in keeping with this, I just searched for the calories for a Leatherby's hot fudge sundae. Leatherby's is a local ice cream place. I'm meeting my sisters there for lunch, and odds are, I... Read more

...I sat down today to log into spark and then pay some bills. I drink a lot of water - never a problem for me - so I had my glass nearby. And...promptly dumped it all over my laptop. I quickly unplugged everything, turned it upside down on... Read more
Rest day

The past few days I've been very active. Friday was an 18 mile bike ride and a 30 minute swim, yesterday did 6.2 miles (hey, a 10k!) trail hike. So I was pretty pooped yesterday and am resting today. Which means I also earned my massage! C... Read more

I didn't plan it but ended up cycling AND swimming today. For the second week, I joined the early morning group of cyclists for a 6 a.m. ride. I was a bit sore from the tri on Wednesday, but warmed up. We did 18 miles and then our coffee r... Read more
A practice Tri

Yesterday evening, I participated in a practice triathlon at Beal's Point, Folsom Lake. I was a little intimidated, as this is the first time I've done all three sports at once. Triathlon takes more equipment and STUFF than running - or ea... Read more

That's what I've been doing the past few days - bits and pieces of errands and tasks. Things that I normally would take care of, I've been a procrastinator. Today, it was thank you notes to two couples who donated in my mom's memory, who re... Read more
