December 30 - REST

I had a coaching shift scheduled at the gym last night.

I got home at the usual time yesterday after work. Moved through the process of changing out of my work clothes, washing up, then changing into my gym/coaching clothes.

Packed the gym bag.

Moved my wallet from my purse into my gym bag and got excited about being able to order wok box for dinner because I would be in the city.

Decided I didn't need my winter jacket or gloves, and instead threw on a sweater jacket that I stole from BF a couple years ago. Grabbed my gym bag and my cell phone.

Left the house, locking the door behind me.

Made it about three steps down the deck before stopping dead in my tracks.

Realized that I locked my keys inside the house.

Horrified, I double checked my gym bag. Nope, not there. Checked the pockets of my sweater jacket. Not there either.

Breathed deeply for about one minute, deciding what my options were. Could I break in? Haha, no such luck; no special way to turn the knob, no weak door that I could wreck and replace. Did I have extra keys somewhere? Yes. Inside the house. Did I leave an extra set of keys with friends? Yes, except the keys were old and I had recently changed my locks without upating my friends with the new keys. So, as a matter of fact, no.

Well, at least I could figure out the gym situation. I could call the gym and explain and then call all my clients. Took my cell phone out of the pocket of my sweater jacket.

Oh. My. God.

7% battery life.

Another minute of heavy breathing to go through my options, then made a quick call to the gym's office assistant who made all the calls for me bless her heart.

4% battery life.

An even more frantic call to BF, who was the only one with an extra set of keys. Who was also still at work for another hour. And an hour's drive away.

He told me to get into the car to at least stay warm. I said the car was locked too, but then realized I could unlock it using my phone's software app. So I jumped into the car, already shivering from the cold, and he got off the phone with me saying he would be on his way as soon as possible. Many thanks given.

Once I realized I could get into the car, I knew I could also use the command start to blow some heat my way, and I could charge my phone while the car was running. After starting it twice for 9 minutes each time, the command start wouldn't work anymore. So I spent the rest of my time waiting with an old blanket I keep in the back, covering my legs and keeping my hands inside my jacket close to my skin. Was tempted many times to use my phone but refrained in case I needed to talk to BF again. First World Problem.

Had it not been for our current covid restrictions, I could have just popped into the neighbor's house until BF got to me, but we are restricted from doing that right now. Rather than putting them at a high risk, I made the decision to stay in the vehicle. It was good luck that BF was able to leave work right away and got to me about an hour and a half after I first discovered I locked myself out.

Moral of the story:  Just when you think your day is going well... SMACK.

LOL. It's all good and now I have a funny story to tell. Thank goodness that is all that happened!

HAPPY NEW YEAR'S EVE! Blessings for the New Year :) :) :)

OMG what a nightmare!

Maria7 on 12/31/2020:
SO SORRY you went through this!!!

bearcountrygg on 12/31/2020:
AWWWW...You are so industrious!!! You made it work but I'm sure you were so scared and frustrated...I LOVE that at each step you stopped and thought it through!!

Jacky82020 on 12/31/2020:
Wow! What an experience! remember: All’s well that ends well

Donkey on 01/01/2021:
Oh my goodness!!! Please update your spare keys as soon as possible! I'm glad that your story had a happy ending, but YIKES! still the same!

Horn_of_plenty on 01/01/2021:
that's a CRAZY new year's eve story...i'm surprised you didn't just wear a mask to pop into the neighbors bc it is kinda cold i'm sure by you to wait outside for over an hour. proud of you for staying strong, getting at least into your car, warming up a little, prob not much, and bf coming to your rescue. thank gosh you had your phone! otherwise, you'd prob have to go to neighbors!...

i guess bf had keys to your place? how crazy! glad you are back home!

Horn_of_plenty on 01/01/2021:
a few years ago, i think i was doing laundry, locked myself out of my apt, neighbor invited me in, had to call maintenance man (they have a set of keys and can open apt doors on Monday-Fridays...if on weekend, you need to call a locksmith!)

Maria7 on 01/01/2021:
Happy new year!

December 28 - REST

December 29 - Bike 1 hour; burned 500 calories.

I had my third athletic therapy appointment yesterday. I've been working on exercises everyday for the last few weeks which i've been completing pretty impressively. I made myself a spreadsheet of all the exercises I need to do, and just check it off each time I get it done. Supposed to do it three times daily. Easy exercises, but there are a few that I have trouble with mentally - like the eversion walk, which simulates the exact route my ankle took when it broke. Trying to get over that in my mind.

Added one new exercise, and next appointment is not for two weeks, at which time if everything is still going well, she will move me into weight-bearing and then plyometric work. Probably could move right into plyometric work right now, since i'm already doing a lot of weight-bearing work, but will follow her program.

It is true that I do have plantar fasciitis in my right foot, which has been tough working through. Mostly because my feet are pretty sensitive and I don't like having them touched/manipulated at all. She does pressure point massage, then cupping, then ultrasound at each session. I can tell the difference right afterwards, and follows into the next day, so I know it's working. Eventually the pain will ease.

With working through therapy, working back at the gym, and working full time at the hospital - I haven't been doing much studying in the nutrition course I am taking. I am considering taking a day off work every two weeks to devote to studying for this course. I have many hours of time available to take from now until the end of March, and it doesn't seem like I am too inclined to do it on the weekends when I am spending time with BF. Balance is hard! But it would probably motivate me to start eating better if I get back to studying.

grannyannie on 12/30/2020:
I've had plantar fasciitis 3 times. Haven't had it for 4 years. I never go barefoot and always have good arch support.

legcramps on 12/30/2020:
I got it because I had to wear a cast for four weeks and my foot being in one position stretched the fascia and muscles in my foot.

bearcountrygg on 12/30/2020:
As far as the aversion walk goes...possibly think to yourself.....that where the bone broke is stronger than ever now because it is mended and has more support......My youngest son broke his collarbone and that is what they told him.

legcramps on 12/30/2020:
Thank you!

grannyannie on 12/30/2020:
Never thought of getting PF from wearing a cast.

legcramps on 12/31/2020:
Me neither :)

Horn_of_plenty on 12/30/2020:
back awhile ago, when i was working and taking a course that i wanted to actually read and prepare for, i found myself wanting to take days in order to feel better about preparing for the course. didn't always use the whole day productively, but it made it easier to work and get the course done at the same time...lol.

i have sensitive feet and hate getting them massaged or worked on like when getting a pedicure. i have had SOME good massages, when i used to get massages, but most parts of my feet cannot be touched unless someone knows how to get around my sensitivity.

legcramps on 12/31/2020:
Yeah, I doubt the whole day would be productive, but at the very least it would offer me the convenience of moving through the course a little bit at a time.

Donkey on 12/31/2020:
I have PF and it's no fun. Is that something that ever goes away? I feel like I have it always but sometimes it's "dormant" and sometimes it flares up.

I had PT for the PF: massage, taping, the ultrasound was MOST helpful in healing deep tissue. I did not have any cupping though. That sounds very intresting!

Good for you for maintaining your therapeutic exercises. Good approach to use a spreadsheet.

I rather like the idea of taking days off to study, too.

legcramps on 12/31/2020:
The cupping makes me cringe! But then, all of it does really. But the cupping is very intense - and she uses the lightest setting possible LOL.

She believes I can work through and resolve the PF with massage, ultrasound, and cupping. I'll keep you updated with actual results. I hope it is resolvable!

Horn_of_plenty on 12/31/2020:
yeah, that was the truth on what happened when i took 2 whole fridays off before the saturday course i was taking.

I felt a whole lot better not going into work those fridays....it's like i made a compromise with myself, that if i took the course, i would be taking some sick or vacation days to get thru it. LOL.

December 23 - REST; I was pooped. Like, so exhausted.

December 24 - shovel; burned 337 calories.

December 25 - gym workout; burned 291 calories.

December 26 - REST.

December 27 - shovel; burned 157 calories.

I've been feeling something for the last week or so.... very full. The holidays, no matter what we seem to do, are always filled with food. Even though i've spent the majority of my time by myself, I've had my share of cabbage rolls, brisket, potatoes, cinnamon buns, cream cheese, and chocolate - to only name a few. Impressive is not the right word, but it's close.

It's been snowing so much here that it seems that's been my workout of choice for awhile now. The one time this last week where I was able to get in a gym workout, I almost died from it. That was also after eating a cinnamon bun that was absolutely to die for. So I almost died twice. But the lesson is that I should have never eaten that bun at that particular time, but I couldn't help myself. And then I had to go to the gym because I literally couldn't sit down at home without feeling SO uncomfortably full.

Anyways, enough about that. My yard is shoveled out, i'm back to work, and this will be a four-day work week. I have a sports therapy appointment on Tuesday, I work at the gym on Wednesday night, and then likely heading to BF's on Thursday night.

I started my morning with a protein waffle and coffee. I have leftovers for lunch and probably supper, and after work I'll be heading to the grocery store to restock the coffers! Hoping to make good choices today.

bearcountrygg on 12/28/2020:
Yes...time for a do over so we can feel better.

legcramps on 12/28/2020:
Ugh, yes please!

Jacky82020 on 12/28/2020:
Shoveling is excellent exercise! Just don’t overdo it.

legcramps on 12/28/2020:
My neck and shoulders are really sore, which I think is what is causing these headaches lately. If only it would stop snowing! LOL

grannyannie on 12/28/2020:
Yes, I think we've all pigged out a bit. Some of us more than others. :)

legcramps on 12/28/2020:
I feel so overly full all the time; I know I can do better!

Donkey on 12/29/2020:
Oh all the eating! I'm sick of eating, and yet still get hungry. I keep trying to get back in track with every meal but probably won't be able to until the cookies are gone.

Are you doing anything for New Year's Eve or Day?

legcramps on 12/29/2020:
I'll be spending it and the weekend at BF's. I'm taking our snowshoes with me, so hopefully we can get out on the walking trails. Maybe BF will let me ride his fat bike around. Otherwise, no plans!

Horn_of_plenty on 12/29/2020:
lots of shoveling, Legs...a true Canadian ;) xoxoxo

Unlike you, I've been spending ample time alone during the holidays and i have not had too many large meals at all. fine with me! i've had just enough, which isn't much...hardly any meals that even would count as an indulgence...first year like that in a LONG time, where I've actually not hand to worry about gaining any weight because i'm preparing and have almost total control over most meals! since i'm a "loner," i don't mind.

those cabbage rolls and the brisket sound GREAT!

i remember my days of eating too much, overly full, and still going to the gym...the gym at least got me moving, sweating out the food / calories...and i was reminded how i shouldn't eat so much and then i'd feel better and the gym workout would be better...but it's good you still went to the gym, so you could exercise which helps a lot..

did you make the protein waffle or was it a mix or was it frozen protein waffles? I am considering buying some kind of frozen waffles as a nice breakfast to eat in a parking lot before entering work when i start working...i'm going to need to have fast, easy breakfasts. i was thinking i could coat it with a little nut butter, have some coffee, and go into work...

legcramps on 12/30/2020:
I eat Kodiak pancake mix...using my waffle iron!

December 22 - shovelled snow; burned 382 calories.

We got more snow through the day yesterday, so I was back shovelling again when I got home from work. It was really horrible weather too - blowing drifts all over the place. I spent over an hour shovelling and only got the back yard and driveway done! Nothing done in the front. Had to put on my snow pants which was the moment I realized that I have put on more weight in the last year than I thought. Will have to do something about that, use the pants as an indicator of progress. It felt beyond fabulous taking them off afterwards!

I will have to shovel again today, as this morning I could barely get my vehicle through the back alley. Everything drifted back in overnight, plus we got even more snow - over a foot altogether; it looks a lot more like three feet in drifty areas LOL. We are definitely getting a white christmas!

I have chicken on the menu for tonight, will make it with rice and veggies. Then I don't really have much else planned besides shovelling snow, so i'm going to relax for the rest of the night! Wish me luck LOL!


bearcountrygg on 12/23/2020:
Have you tried a snow blower? Well worth it! Your menu sounds delish!

legcramps on 12/23/2020:
No I haven't tried a snowblower. In the past, I've had enough helpful neighbors with snowblowers to take care of the bigger parts of my yard so I haven't really needed one myself. I really hate shoveling, so I only do it when absolutely necessary LOL.

Donkey on 12/23/2020:
Could it be that your thigh muscles have grown, that you've bulked up in a good way?

I mentioned yesterday that shoveling snow is a good workout, and that I love it! But after like the 2nd time, it's like, OK, I'm ready for warmer weather. So I guess I don't like it that much!

legcramps on 12/23/2020:
No, it's not fitting in the waist. I wish it were because of my thigh muscles! It's ok, I accept it and will work on it ;)

LOL, I really dislike shoveling so definitely by the 2nd time i've fallen out with it!

Horn_of_plenty on 12/23/2020:
i hope you will have finished shoveling for awhile!

i bought used snow pants last night, to wear today and for the future, women's small...they are huge...both large and long! they really do say a women's small...but...hah! thank gosh for belt loops!

Maria7 on 12/25/2020:

December 21 - shovelled snow; burned 188 calories.

It snowed about three inches on Sunday so when I got home from work yesterday I shovelled for my workout. BF's son came and cleared my driveway for me yesterday, so I payed it forward and cleared the neighbor's driveway and front sidewalk. Looks like I will have to shovel again today as it started snowing early this morning and has been continuing throughout the morning - big, fluffy flakes. 

Yesterday I also picked up Christmas packages from my brother and his family, a nasal mist that I wanted to try (Rhinaris), and groceries for the week.

After shovelling, I did laundry and washed the dishes, and also cleaned the bathroom. I refrained from going so far as to wash the already clean floors LOL.

Once I was done all the cleaning, I made some supper, took a bath, sat in the massage chair for a bit, and then went to bed. Woke up this morning with a headache again, but feeling okay otherwise!

grannyannie on 12/22/2020:
Very constructive days!

Jacky82020 on 12/22/2020:
Shoveling is great exercise! I should try it more instead of tossing a shovel to the husband.

Horn_of_plenty on 12/22/2020:
shoveling = spectacular exercise! GO YOU!

I remember when i was living with my parents, I also shoveled a neighbor's driveway. It was fun :) And that's nice you did it for yours, and got more exercise ! :)

Great movement and chores. I'm super proud of you...you remind me, my bathroom, especially the shower, must be washed before i return to any "real, sustained, Monday thru Friday, work."

bearcountrygg on 12/22/2020:
We are getting daily snow here to that requires shoveling.....when I get headaches they are often because my blood sugar is low..or I'm not drinking enough water...hope yours gets better.

Donkey on 12/23/2020:
I love a shoveling workout! 3 inches is about right. Anything more is quite taxing on the back.

December 18 - gym workout; burned 528 calories.

December 19 - gym workout; burned 353 calories.

December 19 - 12 Days of Christmas workout; burned 338 calories.

December 20 - rest

I guess it really was a rough week, that workout on Friday nearly killed me. I try to say "yes" as much as possible to workouts that my friend and other coaches want to try, or i'll jump into a group session when I can. These sessions push me a lot more, but I can tell that I am seriously stressed out because I can barely get through them. Basically right now i'm just surviving. It is what it is.

BF and I made scuffles and nuts n' bolts this weekend in preparation for Christmas.

Sounds like I will be spending some time on my own during Christmas and possibly after as well, as BF has invited his kids to his house. Part of me expected this, as I couldn't see him not allowing his kids to visit him. It's a tough decision to make, and as much influence as I may have, the choice remains his own and not mine to make. So while he has other people at his house, I will remain at home on my own. It will suck, but I am also an introvert and will appreciate the time on my own as well. I will be fine.

Depending on my attitude later, might try to get a workout in. Have lots of things to do at home, so not sure if I will say "to heck with it" and go workout instead, or if my OCD will kick in and force me to clean my already pretty clean house LOL. In reality, I have some laundry and the dishes to wash and that's it, but will likely throw in a floor wash and bathroom clean just because my brain is not focusing on anything and it's the only thing I know to do to calm myself down.

Jacky82020 on 12/21/2020:
Sounds like you’re one busy beaver & busy is good!

grannyannie on 12/21/2020:
Even when a workout is tough it feels so good when you finish and you feel accomplished.

Sorry you have to spend some of xmas alone.

legcramps on 12/21/2020:
Totally okay, I was expecting to and honestly, will appreciate the extra time to myself :)

bearcountrygg on 12/21/2020:
I say....make the most of your alone time and do some things that you have been wanting to do....soak it in and relax...you deserve it!

legcramps on 12/21/2020:
Yes! Those things being nothing at all LOL LOL LOL!

Horn_of_plenty on 12/21/2020:
yeah!..since you have been running around, won't it be nice to rest on Xmas? even if it's lonely and it's Christmas, you can do some relaxation that is nice for you! Personally, being an introvert also, i love downtime alone when it's not too often (but i have a really high tolerance for downtime...lol,,,i am a little too capable of it! haha) maybe you can do some more stretches, a foot soak or two..? if you have epsom salts? you could really do some nice, healthy things that can only be done when you aren't running around.

it's hard to determine that line between when to clean and when to let it fly. sometimes that exercise / doing other things just is the way to go ;)

ha - you can even clean on Christmas, but i do not recommend it! ha!!

Donkey on 12/22/2020:
I'm looking forward to having some time alone this holiday as well. In fact, the thought of guests (3) on Saturday is already causing me some anxiety.

You've been so busy and surrounded by stress lately. Maybe some quiet time alone, to rest, relax, reflect, and regroup, might be just what you need.

The days are just rolling into each other now...

December 15 - gym workout; burned 538 calories; my coach tried to kill me...

December 16 - bike 40 minutes; couldn't upload my calories burned so no idea, likely somewhere in the 350 mark.

Yesterday was a rest day. I was go-go-go from 6:30 a.m. until about 8:30 p.m. Up in the morning for work, then drove to another therapy appointment, then back to work, then to the gym for a full shift. So when I finally got home in the evening, I was toast. Fitbit watch and app is super finnicky lately so I can't check my steps, but I know they are high for yesterday.

I woke up in the middle of the night with indigestion and panicked that maybe I was having a heart attack. Sigh. I don't know why these thoughts come into my head, but once it was there it was really hard to get back to sleep. Woke up this morning feeling just fine. Sometimes I feel like therapy for my emotional state is required.

This weekend will be heading to BF's which is creating stress for me because I feel like I have a lot of things to do at home. I need to learn to let some things go; too absorbed in seeking the perfect environment and in the end I miss out on all the little moments. Sorry, I know this post is a downer LOL. I'm trying not to be negative I promise!

On the brighter side, I am wearing my ugly Christmas sweater to work today, and i'm going to force the Christmas spirit if it's the last thing I do!

grannyannie on 12/18/2020:
What an exhausting day you had!

It's okay to be down sometimes. Most of us are.

I thought I was having a heart attack once in the middle of the night but it was heartburn.

bearcountrygg on 12/18/2020:
You just sound like you are over extended......Acid reflux does resemble a heart attack.......I drink some water to wash it back down ( ans it can hurt a little when the wate touches the raw spot)...and then I take 4 tums....it's become a way of life around here.....feel better....sometimes we have to just find a happy medium but it's hard....hope things settle down for you Legs!

Jacky82020 on 12/18/2020:
Legs, you deserve a break today, and tomorrow etc. Often those long stressful days are unavoidable. Have a terrific weekend!

Horn_of_plenty on 12/18/2020:
oh how nice, you have a coach?! is the coach your bf?

well, i'm glad you felt much better this AM! :)

i know what you mean about wanting to clean up and not be running around...i get that way, especially because i am a homebody and like to be alone, by myself, at home!

legcramps on 12/21/2020:
I have a few coaches that I work with that I let boss me around ;)

Donkey on 12/19/2020:
Mistakes Girl was just saying the same thing yesterday about the days going by so quickly, blending into one another.

Will things calm down for you after the first of the year? I know our physical therapy clinic on the 1st floor is super busy because of everyone's insurance deductables have been paid, so there's no co-pay for treatment now. Oh, except you have universal medicine.... Nevermind!

legcramps on 12/21/2020:
I think it will depend what happens with our covid numbers...we've been experiencing a rise in numbers which has made things slightly more chaotic along with Christmas and holidays and such. Hopefully it will slow down eventually!

December 10 - gym workout; burned 262 calories.

December 14 - BIKE 45 minutes; burned 305 calories.

I only keep track of my food on diet diaries, so I don't have the details. Pretty much business as usual though.

I have been struggling a bit with headaches again.

I don't know what BF will decide to do with regards to seeing his kids over Christmas, as our gathering was to be at his place this year. We will have to make some changes, which is both do-able and necessary, but will still create some tension and hard feelings. Compared to the grief of losing a loved one to this pandemic, I am aware that the answer here should be easy. Putting it in action may be easier said than done.

I have the afternoon off today so that I can go to my sports therapy appointment, which is a 45 minute drive each way. After the appointment I will workout; drive to BF's, change into a festive sweater and take pictures; workout again with BF; drive home; arrive at an empty parking lot to exchange gifts with a couple of friends; drive home; shower and change into pj's; make a hot chocolate with peppermint chocolate liquor (x2) (maybe x 3 who knows let's get crazy), and meet my friend group virtually to play some games and chat. Oh, I should eat supper in there somewhere too, but the spiked hot chocolate is more important LOL.

Still quite busy at work. Doing my best to get through the days!

Jacky82020 on 12/15/2020:
That hot chocolate sounds marvelous! I want some! Yes, the pandemic has certainly complicated the Holidays

grannyannie on 12/15/2020:
Love hot chocolate! Spiked with liqueur sounds tasty.

My family is all in the US, so of course won't see them except on zoom. Husband's daughter and her family are a 5 hour drive from us. Won't be seeing them either.

horn_of_plenty on 12/15/2020:
Maybe you are drinking less bc we have to wear masks ? Maybe get a straw and drink it under your mask - like water or whatever you want to drink...

Sounds like a very busy day for you! Wow do you motivate me!

I hope your ankle and leg have been feeling better !!!

Miss you!!! But being busy is good - even if it's a little TOO busy. Better than than utter boredom. (Might not feel like that right now, but trust me.)

Happy Monday!

It was a whirlwind weekend; moved all the furniture on Friday which went fairly well. Right now in my province, we are only allowed five people in each household, so I feel that the three of us kept very well distanced and followed proper hand washing etiquette. I feel good about how we handled the visit and was happy to see that my cousin was ready to do what was necessary rather than being "anti-pandemic" which would have been impossible for me to accommodate.

They left on Saturday morning and I cleaned the house.

On Sunday, wrapped gifts while drinking hot chocolate, watched another Christmas movie, and put up more Christmas lights outside. I also drove around and looked at other people's Chirstmas lights. It was fun.

Also on Sunday I completed a "12 Days of Fitmas" gym challenge and I almost died and realized that my cardiovascular system is probably not top-notch at the moment.

Looking forward to a sports therapy appointment on December 15th to have a look at the ankle/foot. It was causing me pain all weekend, especially on the bottom of the foot... for which I have no explanation.

Sounds productive! Sorry your ankle is giving you pain.

Wait, you have a heart rate monitor that does calories for any activity? Think ours was specific for the spinner. What kind do you have? I want one!

That’s fun to drive around and look at people’s lights ;)

Try to lessen your activity on your foot if it’s in pain, if you can. I know it’s hard!

So where is all the furniture in your house ?! Was it hard to fit it all in ?

Glad the furniture event went well! Oh I bet you're glad that's over!

I'm sorry to hear of your continued ankle problems now into your foot. Bottom of foot sounds like plantar fasciitis?

Keep up the good work!
