I was on leave busy eating clean, working out doing cardio and strength training, swimming doing combat, zumba, rowing and rpm and biking. The scale did not move! . Was it because I was missing something knowledge or information or secret on spark because I wasnt able to fit in sparking just a quick cal and fitness entry. I went back to work and on the second day...........
I was on my way out of work when I slipped and fell awkwardly in the hallway.

My workmates had to drive me home, the pain was intense. About 1 hour later i got into the physiotherapist and she sent me for an x ray the following morning.

It turns out im lucky nothing broken but i do have a grade 2 hamstring strain
So I will be sitting here on an ice pack for the next couple of days willing it to heal fast and trying not to eat too much and burn cals (go the chair exercisers!)
It turns out that even though I have a bit of computer work to do ,I do now have more time to spend on spark .

So send me your best recovery story to motivate me emoticon emoticon emoticon

    OWWWW! I'm sorry to hear it! I don't have a "best" recovery story, but here's mine... so far... :)

    In 2000 I tore the SI tendon that basically connects my right hip to my spine. Childbirth was less painful! It was agonizing, and I spent several weeks in physical therapy. Since then, every couple of years I reinjure if I let pilates and core exercise slip too away and then try to do something suddenly strenuous. Like last May, my worst reinjury ever.

    I could barely walk for 3 weeks. I couldn't sit comfortably for almost 2 months, because the transition to stand again just crippled me. My office made changes to lift my desk to a standing height (the only comfortable position, even for 8+ hours/day).

    I walked slooooowwwwwly until I could walk upright. I learned to swim a little, and increased PT and pilates. I regained 8 lbs in 3 months, but by mid-August I was ready to start longer walks, about 3 miles/day ("About time!" declared my GSD puppy!). In a few weeks I started to mix in some jogging. By the end of October, I was jogging a slow 3 miles, but moving!! Another month and I was picking up the pace and feeling whole again.

    It took wayyyy too long. But moving on, and can't wait to wear heels again, lol!!

    Was there a point in there somewhere? Yes. Take the time you need to heal... but don't let it put you on a backward slide.
    You'll be fine!!!
    Rock the day,
