I went to a second orthopedist for another opinion.  Luckily, I am OUT of the wheelchair! 3 days off my feet was enough for sure (but I wouldn't change anything I did - I am glad I made the appropriate precautions when I thought I needed to).  Back to work today & glad to get back to the swing of things!!!!

Plan is to go to work, no overtime, go home for dinner & to the gym for a little bit of weights and abs.  Have a snack (protein drink) and go to bed. No cardio planned for today except walking to my car and from car to work. I still cannot walk much, but doc said I should do what I can.  Physical Therapy is a must.

Breakfast: Pine nuts, fiber one, almond milk: 400

snack: almonds 160

snack: protein bar 210

lunch: chicken in wrap 300, tomatoes, slice mozzerella cheese 60 , tomatoes 40 tooo many pretzels, but was fun...!

EVEN though i can't walk much, I may go next door to the gym for some arm exercies?

snack: apple and tomatoes 150

dinner: lots of cooked veggies - maybe 250 or 300 and cottage cheese with some stevia (yes, doing it again!) around 400 :-)

2100 cal. not terrible & maybe less.

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 5 lbs to go!

Puddles on 04/03/2013:
It is certainly good news. Take care and have a wonderful day.


grannyannie on 04/03/2013:
Excellent! I'm sure the physical therapist will give you great advice on what to do to build yourself back up.


OhioRaven on 04/03/2013:
Hope you're back to normal soon. Take care.


getmebackto150 on 04/03/2013:
Happy to hear you are walking again!!! Have a great day:)


legcramps on 04/03/2013:
Must feel great to be out of that wheelchair! I think you're right to back off on the cardio and maybe do some upper body work instead. Hope whatever you do today is a success!


V on 04/03/2013:
Thanks for the update, it sounds like you will be feeling 100% soon..And thank goodness you still have some vacay days for summer :)

Big breakfast bc i wasn't getting satisfied at first. i skipped all artificial sweetners as well as the stevia/truvia.  and boy was i craving sweets - from my tea to my cereal...so i ended up adding some cherry flavored protein powder with natural sugars (and, yes, too much sugar i can't believe i ever bought it - didn't look closely enough bc the front said "no refined sugars" but it has tons of sugar anyway, just not refined...ok!

8am Breakfast: hot fiber cereal with almond milk 200 and some egg white 25, protein powder 100, cottage cheese 110: 435, oh, and an everything flavored wrap 80: around 520 good.

10am snack: strawberries 80 at most

12pm lunch: 2 wraps 250, with lox 150 (leftover parents dropped it off yesterday), green beans 50, lots of grilled veggies (bought it on Saturday - i spend so much money on healthy prepared foods i must cook more after this injury...just a lil more...to save some money) i know of all the supermarkets where i can get good quality deli foods - from all sorts of cooked vegetables to tasty meats, even grains - on Long Island and even here in Queens! haha anyways, the veggies - 150 at most. total: 600 - healthy.

snack: fruit & seeds 140, almonds 160: 300

1500 so far

dinner: 400

total: 1900 (bit high for no exercise...)

tomorrow i am fasting in the morning for a blood test. going for a full checkup with my dad picking me up for it.  he knows the people in the medical office i am going to as he works in the same building. they were able to get me an emergency appointment this week to get bloodwork, bone density, and a bunch of other exams bc of what has been going on with me.

supercheese on 04/01/2013:
thanks hop! I look to you really for a source of inspiration! youre a beast when it comes to working out, so i hope one day i can equally be as beastly lol. Hows healing process going? Hope okay!!


thenewMLE on 04/01/2013:
Hope you are feeling better! Those sugar cravings are hard to overcome. I fought them with protein. But I still couldn't give up the stevia... It's amazing how much sugar is hiding in even the "healthy foods". I had an overdone sugar weekend for the first time in 15 months and I am really feeling it this morning. I need to go cold turkey again! Have a nice day and get some well deserved rest!


OhioRaven on 04/01/2013:
Have a good day, HOP !


hollybelle on 04/01/2013:
Thinking of you. Let us know what tests reveal. :o)

thanks for all the well wishes ladies, it means a lot.  To tell you the truth, at this beginning stage, I am praying things start to heal & fast.  I just can't even fathom feeling better & it's frustrating to not really know how my progress will go until it happens.  I hope to be able to walk to my car and go to work next week. If I can't, I obviously won't.  I'll take another week vacation if I have to, but I surely hope that my tibias start to heal so i don't have to waste all sick days plus some of my vacation days (i get just 2 weeks starting tomorrow April 1 till next year April 1!) on this injury! Not a good way to start using all my days at once!!! I was planning to use days in the summer!!! to go to the beach & relax.  I hope I get them...otherwise, I will only be taking vacation days to do priority things this year - mostly related to getting into the academy....at least these are my sick days so far & not vacation days.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

legs are doing bad - will be home in a wheelchair this week!!!  stress fractures are not recovering.

8am breakfast: 200 hot cereal & almond milk, snacking on some mints before lunch 50 forgot i had a wrap, too. 80 more

12:30/1pm lunch: lots of grilled veggies (went to the store yesterday preparing to be home all day today & not realizing that all the walking did me in completely hopefully not past Friday this week!) and salad 160, chicken meatball big 150, wrap 120 430 good.

680.

dinner: wrap 100, lox 150, pumpkin seeds 50, pepper 50 400 or so

snack at 3am: extra wrap 80

1250 or so.

will try to be eating better and more moderate this week as i will be "bedridden" - i don't see binging in my near future....i will not get fat by continuing to eat 2250 cal-2600 cal a day with no movement (as much as i'd like to be eating that much & more!) lol.  of course i'd rather go to work than lay in bed - as we know that at least sticking with a routine is better than laying down/not being able to walk all day. after this week, i plan to start up with physical therapy. just wanna get my bones healing ASAP right now, as little pressure on them as possible.

Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 5 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 03/31/2013:
Happy Easter !


OhioRaven on 03/31/2013:
Praying for your legs.


grannyannie on 03/31/2013:
Oh no! Sorry. Hope you heal quickly.


Puddles on 03/31/2013:
Will keep you in my prayers. Have a great day and relax.


Tangalyn~ on 03/31/2013:
sorry about ur poor legs :( i hope u make a fast recovery!


hollybelle on 03/31/2013:
How long do they think you will have to not walk at all? Miss work? Sorry, HOP. Do what the doc says and let us know what's up. Are you in pain


hollybelle on 03/31/2013:
Have they talked to you about what shoes to wear for less impact or anything? Especially when you start back to work.


mylilsista on 04/01/2013:
I sure hope your recovery is swift (hugs)!


V on 04/01/2013:
I am so sorry about your legs :( A speedy recovery to you <3 Sorry that you have to use your vacation days but you really need them now..
