What I Would Have Done Differently - Pushed on PT
Going back to physical therapy has made a night and day difference in my ankle. After my first follow up with the PA after my hardware removal, I didn't push him on letting me head back to physical therapy. I wish I would have, as I would have been a full two weeks ahead of where I am now. But, what I'm doing is working, and I'm making progress!
What is Frustrating - Tortoise not Hare
SO SLOW. I just want to go run. I know I am making definite, appreciable progress, but I want to really start moving again. I had my regular physical the other day, and I am at the highest weight of my life which is definitely not ideal. When I get stressed, instead of going for a run and sweating out the frustration, right now I'm stuck on the couch eating ice cream. But, again, we'll get there.
What I'm Looking Forward To - DISNEY WORLD....again
So....yeah :) My parents have invited the hubby and I, as well as my brother and his girlfriend, to go to Florida with them at the end of January. YAY.
What is Working - Physical Therapy
I got to use the stair stepper last week! We were pretty anxious with Disney and how well my ankle would hold up, Butt my first appointment, the day after we got back, the quote was "wow, I can't believe how great this looks. I was not expecting this." So there!
What I've Accomplished -
I wore my Jawbone UpMove fitness tracker each day during our Disney trip, and I rocked it. Check this out:
7.4 miles, and that was right about where I landed every day of my trip! I'll do a post soon about dealing with ankle issues while you're at the parks, but I'm very happy with how everything worked out.
This Week's Goal - Healthy Year 2
My amazing husband and I are celebrating our first anniversary today, and we've decided that over the next year we're going to make our health one of our top priorities. He's running a half-marathon with a friend down in New Orleans in February, and while I'm not running I am going to do my best to train alongside him and get ready for running my own Disney half marathon, hopefully next November!
