Recovery - Weigh In
I can't even begin to pinpoint what went wrong with everything because this week has been so terrible as far as routine (not food or exercise) and when I'm sick I just don't want to eat or drink anything. I ate so little earlier in the week I was weak. I know, not smart. All I can do is hope with the cold on it's last leg now and me making a commitment to drink water every single day whether I want to or not. I think I wasn't drinking because that would mean I'd need to get up and be on my foot, go upstairs, back down, etc and I wasn't up for it...I would've peed myself to not be on it if that was an option. Well I suppose it was but the Mr would've had to clean it and he's been through enough.
I'm on day 3 of physical therapy and holy...crap!!! I take back any time I might've knocked someone for doing it based on what I perceived as a "small" injury. The muscle soreness from building up the proper muscles for recovery is really painful the first few days. I just took an epsom salt bath for the muscle soreness but my ankle isn't a fan of the heat so I'm using my spiky ball now for soft tissue massage, I've done my stretches warm and now I'm about to ultra sound the heck out of my feet so walking might actually be an option today. I'm also on day 3 of no overnight nerve firings which makes me absolutely ecstatic. You just have no idea how horrible it can feel unless you've experienced it and I pray none of you can ever relate. So while I'm in a painful transition, I believe it's a painful transition to the best possible outcome and I'm going to do everything I'm told to keep this condition away forever!
What's on your agenda today?
