Day 37 of 120 & Doctor Visit Day

lmp day 37

The stitches are officially out! And that is the only good news I got today. So at the visit she decided the stitches definitely needed to come out because they were tearing the skin a bit and causing quite a bit of discomfort.  But here is the kicker. the wound still needs a little time so I get to wear a sexy splint on my finger with a tongue depressor behind it to keep my finger and knuckle from bending, a lovely butterfly closure and some tape over that for at least the next 24 hours. YAY! *note sarcasm.  So workouts were and will be affected by that.

She also took a look at my knee. It constantly sounds like two stones rubbing together. Her thoughts are either the kneecap is slightly off or Osteoarthritis. Neither would be serious so I am not too worried if either is the case. I am scheduled for an x-ray and have a follow-up on November 8th and will know for sure what the issue is. The part that gets me is that she said no running, no jogging, no aerobics, no lunges, and no squats until after my follow-up appointment and we know for sure what is going on. Honestly, the no lunges part did not bother me at all. Everyone knows I loathe lunges. Thinking I am going to keep the squats but just not hit them as hard. Time to be a rebel. Plus I just don’t see how it can hurt doing it for a couple of weeks more. I would miss out on so much of the Les MIlls Pump program if I cut everything out. I will not run, jog, do aerobics or lunge and will cut back on the squats.  Going to do my best at sticking with the program as much as possible and just modify the hell out of certain things for now.

Today’s scheduled workout was Hard Core Abs along with a 40 minute walk. Got through hard core abs minus the last track. No way i wan balance myself on my hand with this darn splint and tongue depressor on it. For the walking portion I hopped on the treadmill and just walked at a fairly brisk pace.

You can’t see it but the tongue depressor shoved behind the splint it not comfortable. Doesn’t this just look super fun?!

It’s the freakin’ weekend!

No workout for me today. If am having fun doing laundry and getting prepped for the weekend. Heading out-of-town for the night, I have to pick up our race day packets so we used it as an excuse to spend the night in Ann Arbor. I think dinner at Pacific Rim may be in order, and cocktails, Mm-mm drinks. I will get plenty of walking in down there so I won’t feel bad about not walking at home today. The weather is kind of strange today (as well as yesterday) so I had to figure out how to dress and not have to change in the evening. So I am thinking a light dress, belt, tall boots and a jean jacket. That way I can just add or remove the jacket as it gets chilly tonight. The low is in the 60’s brr but is in the 80’s right now. The upper 90’s suits me better, even with the humidity. Cold turns me into a big baby. Why am I in Michigan?

Outfit for tonight, Just bought this dress yesterday, tried on the Large and had to ask for a Medium!! Even the sales girls were shocked. They were used to me going in for XL and L earlier this year.

Saturday I will return home and have Schmitty’s wedding reception. Can’t wait! Get to bed at a semi decent hour then head back out-of-town before the sun rises for The Color Run. I have my race day outfit prepared and ready to go! I am sure that even though I will not be running that it will be a ton of fun and I will get to spend time with a friend I do not see often.

Everything is ready for The Color Run, Ann Arbor!

The knee is feeling even better today, the stairs at home are easier to climb and that is a good sign. I am itching to get back to my workouts. I am not looking forward to seeing where this hiatus has left my fitness level. Getting back to where I was shouldn’t be too much of a problem or take long , well lets hope so.

After the weekend I have 2 nominations/awards to blog about. Vacay, injury and laziness has kept me from keeping up with my blogging duties. :p I have not forgotten and will get it done! Promise!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! Happy Friday!

Hiatus.. I’m not dead, I just went crazy!

Once again I disappeared. Sorry guys. There has been too much going on lately and I haven’t made the time to keep up here or an any of the social networks. Sometimes life gets crazy and you just have to take a step back from other things and focus on getting back to normal. I had a minor medical issue after returning from vacation, wrecked me knee after that then had a Bridal shower and wedding invitations to make for a wedding I am MOH in this September on top of dealing with my family being a bunch of crazies and a bush catching on fire that was right against my house as I was leaving for vacay. Busy, Busy. Fun. Fun.

I am ashamed to say that my diet has been sub par but no so bad it is out of control, I have gotten workouts in a few times a week but I am just walking or peddling on the recumbent bike, my knee swells at the thought of anything more. The swelling has gone more but now that the swelling has lessened it hurts like crazy. I am hoping that in a week I can be back to normal. But, if the pain doesn’t die down by Monday I will be into the doctor and getting to the bottom of this. I have no idea what happened. I hadn’t worked out the day it started and there were no falls, twists or bumps to it. Maybe it is just my Fybromyalgia? Who knows.

Saying all of this my recent 90 Day Challenge will be started over and I promise myself and all of you that I will get back on track and come back better than ever!

This Sunday is The Color Run in Ann Arbor. Unfortunately i was ready to run it but now do not want to change further injury on my knee. I am still going to do it but at a much slower pace (speed walking more than likely)

Also, I will get the vacay pics loaded and post those soon. I hope all of my fellow WPers (thanks for checking on me Kurt) are doing well as well as everyone else.
