Update and new goals

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

Well it has been a long couple months... Paul had an infection in his ankle, which spread into his ankle joint. Some stats: 12-day hospital stay, 2 surgeries, 4 weeks of morphine, 8 weeks of antibiotics, 6 weeks of intravenous antibiotics (4 of those administered at home, by me). I can't believe that all just happened - Paul's still not healed all the way. He still has very restricted range of motion in his right ankle, is working through that with PT and pushing the joint - the range of motion will not increase unless he makes it move. He's walking with a cane - and is using our stationary bike to start up some cardio and it's good for his ankle too.

We're both weighing more than we want to - so we're both back on SP to track our food and exercise. It will be good for us to have this accountability and routine to fall back on.

And I signed up for the Orangeman 70.3 again - it's on Sept 8th. This is week 3 of my training plan - it's very much a loose plan - not strict at all. I'm loosely following this plan - triathlete-europe
- just to have some idea of things to push myself during my workouts.

Anyways, that's my update - we'll be around more regularly for awhile, and we need to keep eachother accountable to do the right thing when it comes to the fuel we put into our bodies.

    OH NO! That sounds horrific. I will keep your husband in my prayers. Good luck with your training.

    I know that since I haven't had a specific workout program that I'm following I feel a little puffy myself.
