A fast and productive day!

Exercise was a stroll at lunch, just left leg burned a little after. Rt leg feeling better these few days. Leg exercises at pt.

Calories....1150 thru lunch, 200 snack of iced decaf coffee and a smallish banana, light shake for dinner only 150 cals and satisfying!

Grand total around 1500 good! I am happy with this bc I DO feel satisfied not hungry before bed. I will be concentrating on eating less bc my body needs less :). I feel good.

Good Morning & Happy Sunday!

6am Breakfast: (was gonna make eggs but realized I wanted cereal - I only usually have it on weekends) - almost two cups of low calorie cereals and almond milk: 310 or so. 

8:30am Snack: Promax low sugar peanut butter cookie dough protein bar. 240...wanting a decaf iced coffee....I've noticed this coffee drinking is finally affecting my pearly whites a lil bit lol...it may be time to quit the habit and drink only tea at work...instead of sipping coffee all morning....we'll see....

9am snack: decaf coffee 100

10am-11am shake, around 250

1-2pm BIG LUNCH, tasty, mostly cooked teriyaki veggies, but also 1/4 lb lox on a wrap. 750. also a drink.

1650, perfect.

Total around 2150 - excellent and bc if a long upper body workout, I know I probably burned more than that today!!

yes, left leg burns, so sitting home rest of afternoon.  AM was a big upper body weights routine, I have actually gotten stronger, almost doing 3 reps in my right arm of 25 lb weights. left arm still at 20lbs.

back to the legs, either something magical happens or it doesn't.  I go back to the doctor on the 14th and it cannot come quickly enough. that's 3 weeks from now.  I have completed 5 full weeks of physical therapy. Very difficult to keep up with after work 3x per week, Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Now, I just have to get the NYU (New York University) Medical Center orthopedic surgeon to allow me to take the pressure test - to see if I actually have diagnosed compartment syndrome.  (He DID diagnose it on my chart, but no pressure test with the needles). 

If the pressure test confirms chronic compartment syndrome, I am pretty sure surgery becomes an option.  If the test is negative, it will emphasize the need for me to take physical therapy even more seriously since surgery will not be an option. 

Unfortunately, the doctor wasn't promoting me going for the test at my last visit.  So I have been restlessly waiting, still waiting, for these two months to go by so I can have the test.  (in the back of my head, I feel it's exactly what I have....but I can be wrong, of course).

 

 

 

(left leg is still aggravated as I felt it as soon as I woke up - but not severe at all, right leg is better but not totally pain-free and still feels it time to time)

Breakfast a healthy more satisfying and high protein chicken wrap. 500.

Snacking iced decaf coffee 100 and some kinda bar...

Around 2050-2200 cal. Good abs workout and some walking at mall. Only the left leg was bothering me today - it still burns. Rt leg felt close to nothing. Feet did hurt from walking since I don't walk much anymore. Can't wait to be more in shape!

Really busy day. Legs hurting far less but still not doing any extra activity. 1850 cal which is perfect. Exercise was just physical therapy. Bed early :)

2050 total cal. Happy with this for sure. Exercise: my favorite total upper body.

 

Does anyone have any advice on how to overcome my problem with my legs?!

 

Been up since 3:30/4am....too busy this week....so I did the laundry that's been piling up since I did it last Friday morning and then skipped the rest that needed to be do in Sunday :) at least it's not on my mind anymore...

 

lil bit of a depressing day.  i had a training course (tomorrow too) at work all day.  but we got out at 4pm so afterwards we went back to work at our normal positions here.  It's a lot to learn (and i have an issue bc i lack some of the important background knowledge which would help me understand the program.  I don't have the knowledge because i never studdied engineering / electrical work before this job.

i am depressed, just a little bit, because i know i could have been OUT OF HERE if my legs were never an issue.  I would have gotten into the NYPD for July but the process is on hold, indefinitely, until they start to heal.  but by indefinite, really, i am looking to get in for this coming January.  I want it so bad, to be away from here, from the stress and all the change in an industry that i never really imagined ever starting / staying / being a part of.  I never wanted to learn this or have an ounce of passion.

all other industries i've worked on, at least i had some passion, even in the medical.  My legs need to heal.  but it's stressful just to think that way.  i may need the surgery indeed....i go for a follow up on the 14th next month but that's just too far away...

Hang in there! I hope you can heal in time and then do what you really want to do!


Umpqua on 03/21/2014:
That's tough that you feel stuck in your current position and everything is on hold because of your legs. But your health needs to come first, however slow the process may be. Wishing you lots of positive energy for recovery, whatever route that happens to be!

1850 healthy cals for Tuesday. Busy day of course :)

Wednesday....

1350 before dinner which was lots of cooked teriyaki vegetables and very small sandwich. Around 450 at most.

1700 to 1800 total. Good. Exercise was physical therapy for legs. No other exercise.

Both today and yesterday, legs still bother me. Left more than rt. rt hardly. But I feel a burn even when I am sitting.
