MONDAY:

Work brings me down, man. It might be time to start looking for something else.

Good eats, really looked forward to having another bison burger for dinner!

Hauling wood - 30 minutes

Stretching - 10 minutes

That's it; took it easy in preparation for a big day today, but we'll see if the weather cooperates.

PT appointment this morning; my hammies have been super tight for a while now, but other than that and my nagging achilles, no real issues! Good!

Glad to hear you are chugging through my favorite coho chop train here :) haha keep up the great work cramps!

It's Wednesday - the weekend is right around the corner!!

FRIDAY:

Lots of eats, including weekly bagel treat, chocolate bar, hot dog and potato chips. There really wasn't a reason, so i'm just going to live it, document it, and now forget it.

Rest day! Went camping, but decided to drive home because it was too darn cold to sleep in a tent. Got home around midnight which meant Saturday morning came early.

SATURDAY:

Great eats! Back on track :)

Yardwork - 1 hour and 30 minutes

Golf - 1 hour at the driving range

Hauling wood - 30 minutes

Stretching - 10 minutes

I now have a fire pit in the backyard and enough wood to last me for years! Sweet!

SUNDAY:

Super eats; tried a bison burger with roasted brussel sprouts - delicious!

Yardwork - 2 hours

Long Bike Ride - 2 hours

Stretching - 15 minutes

Went biking with a friend and we took it easy. Once I dropped her off, I booked it home and tacked on another 3 miles to make it a 16 mile ride. Very challenging - through dirt and up and down hills!

I'm in a great mood so far today; I feel like I accomplished some good stuff on the weekend, and now I just need to roll through this week real fast so that another weekend gets here quick ;)

Horn_of_plenty on 06/09/2014:
Love how you talk about the workweek! I am with you girl let it go fast!

THURSDAY:

Fantastic eats! A little extra at dinnertime because I was a little extra hungry. Seems like the rest days are my hungry days - wtf?

Physiotherapy - massage happened and Holy Hamstrings! Yee-ouch. Achilles is still buggin'.

Stretching - 5 minutes

Walk - 30 minutes

Took the rest of the evening to nap and pack for a camping trip this weekend. The napping kind of took precedence.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/07/2014:
I was reading an article online regarding dieting and calories. Dieters usually have their best days on Thursdays keeping calories low right before the weekend :)


Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/08/2014:
I hope you had a fantastic weekend!

Camping - how fun! Have a great time!

Seriously? It's not Friday yet?

Great eats once again. I am rocking the menu this week! I polished off a bag of popchips, but thankfully that only worked out to 200 cals and I had plenty of room for it.

Yoga - 30 minutes

Stretching - 15 minutes

Walk/Jog - 23 minutes

Iced achilles - 15 minutes

I hemmed and hawed about what to do for exercise, finally deciding on yoga and then once I was done that, I wanted to do more :) too bad the jogging sort of trashed my achilles for the night.

TUESDAY:

Great eats! Wasn't hungry for dinner, but I made myself eat anyways.

Biked 11+ miles - 1 hour

Golfed - 2 hours

I went biking on the highway to see if the side of the road would be smooth enough for our longer rides (once we get into the 20+ mile rides). Seems like it should work, though it was a little bumpy and my right thumb went numb almost immediately ;)

Stretching - 15 minutes

Iced knee/calves/achilles/ankle - 15 minutes

That pretty much left me with enough time to eat dinner, watch Salem, and go to sleep. AWESOME sleep - like a rock!

Horn_of_plenty on 06/05/2014:
One of my physical therapists mentions to me how important it is to just keep stretching all day :)


SkinInTheGame on 06/05/2014:
I so agree - I started doing 20 minutes daily of good stretching from a tape and I plan to double the time next week to 40 minutes - I really feel good after a stretch session.

MONDAY:

good eats, with some frozen yogurt thrown in for good measure

yardwork 1/2 hour

physiotherapy -

recumbant bike 20 minutes hard effort

probed and prodded my rolled ankle; i'm going to start wearing tensor wraps on my ankles to give them more support

analyzed my gait to see why I keep getting shin splints; must remember to walk off the first two toes of the feet!!! that probably means nothing to you, but it's something that I need to be reminding myself of every now and then.

then I drove to the city because I was fed up with my lack of summer clothing; spent way too much money and it will probably take me a full month to recover from that little spree

I'm a little frightened to head to PT after work today and tell her that I rolled my ankle playing ball. I know she will just take it in stride, but I certainly don't want her to feel like she's not doing much for me - she's made a huge difference in my life so far!

My ankle feels much better anyways, and so does the achilles tendon. I think it's because I truly rested them this time instead of pushing it. Although I sure missed my yoga this weekend.

Friday - bike 1/2 hour and yardwork 1&1/2 hours, also baseball game was fabulous :)

Saturday - yardwork 4 hours and fireside chitchat later in the evening

Sunday - REST; stretched and did some situps, pushups, and planked for 45 seconds, but that was it; spent the day cleaning and getting organized for this week

All in all it was a great weekend, too bad it ended so quickly!

 

SkinInTheGame on 06/02/2014:
Glad to see you let yourself rest - you will get better faster!

It's Murphy's Law that when you think you've got a plan, something like that will bite you in the butt!

Sounds like you are getting the best of if!!

Hope you are 100% soon!

We got a crazy storm yesterday that lasted for about half an hour; pretty sure a couple tornados went through as there's stuff strewn everywhere and some sheds and small buildings have completely changed location.

Part of the fence in my backyard was ripped up and toppled over when I got home. Guess i'll have to deal with that at some point, but right now i'm just glad everyone is safe and no one got hurt. Lots of other people I know have some major damage to their house and yards, so i'm not about to start complaining over a little bit of fence!

I took a total rest day and elevated my foot pretty well all evening. I watched a lot of Cougarwives, which left me feeling a little disgusted to be honest. I'm glad I don't make much time for television; most of it is just so meaningless.

This morning I wrapped my foot in an ankle brace and biked to work. It feels fine, so I think i'm definitely on the mend. Won't do much more today than a little yardwork though, just in case.

Have a great weekend!

Oh gosh :( I am sooooo sorry to hear about the injury and that your Achilles' tendon is acting up. It makes me nervous to read these things bc I fear the same for myself actually :( I feel I will never recover....maybe if we changed our diets completely but I really really really don't want to :(

Yesterday was my first slopitch game of the season. In the third inning, I was playing field and caught a ground ball; as I was throwing it to second base (where we got the runner out), I overextended my left foot and twisted it pretty good. Thankfully, another player had a tensor bandage so I was able to wrap it and play out the rest of the game.

Sucker throbs though.

It feels like I did something to the top/right side of my foot, and then I also really ratched my achilles tendon. It's thoroughly pulled now, if it wasn't before.

This is obviously going to suck big time, because I can't do anything in terms of workouts. Can't bike, can't jog, yoga is pretty much out too. PT told me before that a strained achilles means three to six weeks off to recover. Obvs I didn't give it the time it needed to heal. I can be such an idiot.

I wanted to cry when I got home last night, but instead I iced my achilles and top foot really good while I ate dinner, then went out into the yard and putzed around watering plants.

So, plans change, I guess.

I am going to try and do more digging in the garden and see what I can accomplish. Might also say screw it and head over to the home store and shop for patio blocks and a fire pit instead - and take a complete rest day today. I don't want to, but it might be the best thing I could do for myself.

Legs - so sorry to hear about your injury! You have a good plan to heal and I hope you feel better very soon!!

A quick summary of the last two weeks:

Started yardwork; took some time off work; visited family; went to a bbq; went to a concert; did a 10 mile bike ride in just under an hour; did some yoga; did some pilates; walked; jogged.

My shin splints started acting up again so I've relegated myself to the bike for now. My next physio appointment is Monday so hopefully she will be able to relieve some of the pain. I was pretty disappointed in this result since I hadn't overdone anything - I simply had a three-week break from physio. I am also having trouble with my achilles tendon, which is really starting to bother me. I am going to stop talking about this now because it's just upsetting me.

I've got lots going on this week - today i'm biking home from work and then I need to start digging up the garden. I am also doing some perennial planting; hopefully all this will be done before 6:30 when I have slopitch. Then tomorrow I want to get patio blocks and a fire pit and start building myself a pit in the backyard. I will probably need to do more digging before I can actually put the patio blocks down. Tomorrow night is the first baseball game of the season as well. Then Friday and over the weekend I need to continue on with yardwork and building the fire pit, and then I want to plant some grass around the pit, set up a new garden hose, put some trellaces in the front, blah blah blah. It's overwhelming. Did you read all of that? Good for you, you're a real trooper! Want to do it all for me?

I also want to get in a 15 mile bike ride this weekend, and get some more yoga and pilates in.

Seems exhausting, but i'll just take it one thing at a time and see what I can get done.

Foods have been so-so: Chicken, rices, veggies, made some bison burgers one day for dinner, spaghetti with chicken. Some not-so-greats were frozen yogurt (chocolate), two snickers bars in one sitting, and potato chips. It's sort of been a free-for-all lately, but it certainly could have been a lot worse!
