Made it through my first day of work post-stress fracture. I dread all the comments of "what happened?"and "are you ok?" but no tears were shed so I'll call it a success. My foot is in more pain than in the past 2 days, but it's because I haven't had a chance to ice it today.
The orthopedic shoe is quite bothersome. For those who know me, know I am an extremely fast walker and this shoe is really slowing me down. I'm trying to come to terms, but makes me so sad to know that all the time I spent training this summer will be for nothing.
I'm attempting to clean up my diet while in this phase of recovery...except there are usually many mounds of chips at work. I tried to resist but wasn't totally successful; I went for the moderation approach :) Dinner tonight will be Trader Joe's cauliflower pizza crust. My lunch was clean: yogurt parfait and a quinoa-black bean salad with guacamole. Last week I was splitting cinnamon rolls with no guilt whatsoever.
My fiance is starting to pick up his fitness routine, which I know will be hard for me. I want to ride the endorphin high and accomplish new goals. For now, I will commit to a blog post a day for 1 month.
