It has been a long go...I can't believe a simple fall turned into a 3.5 month nightmare. No activity, major pain, surgery, physical therapy. Gaining back ALL the weight I had lost. BUT the good news is, with all my prior exercise and muscle, I was able to shave off 4 weeks of PT!!! Doc was very impressed with my progress and since "I know what I am doing" I can stop the formal PT and strengthen my legs on my own! I was so proud of myself when I heard that. Although I injured myself, because of all the hard work I have been doing these last few years, my recovery is way ahead of schedule. Really can't ask for anything more than that.
For Lent, I have given up all sweets, junk food, fast food, etc. My DH and I are following the P90X program (with modifications for me of course). I also am going to the gym at least 3X's a week for cardio and extra ST for my legs. I am motivated and energized. I am also so happy to be back on here. I never should have stopped coming on but it was so depressing just sitting around all the time. I am so happy to be able to move again. NEVER take it for granted!!!
Have an AMAZING day!
