Post Ortho...another week gone by

Posted by allready_gone on May 22, 2010 5:03:51 PM

Okay so I guess that in the 3 weeks I've spent on the medical hamster wheel, I have been using the leg far too much for it to even think about healing.  I finally got to the Ortho who says I'm to do NOTHING until he sees me again in 3 weeks. He put me an an Aircast boot but to be honest I'm doubting it's doing much for this particular injury other than irritating my leg, my skin and me.  I am trying to follow directions and use the crutches whenever possible with or without the boot.  I'm trying not to have a bad attitude because I get that it could be sooo much worse but since I can't seem to remove my head from rear long enough to focus on what I can do....the attitude isn't improving much although it has improved since I got my butt back to church last week. My 17 year old has been great about helping me out and not complaining.  I'm very proud of her.  I'm trying to do better about leaving it in God's hands but I guess I'm the opposite of a lot of ppl. I always praise Him and give Him credit when things are good but I'm not very good about going to Him when things are not.  I think it's a worthiness issue.  Don't know how to get past it. What do you suppose it is that can make us so motivated to be fit and exercise but the second a major roadblock gets in our way it's so easy to wallow and not do anything.

 

I bought a used recumbant stationary bike and hopefully after my next Dr visit I will get to start using it.   I need to work with the P90X ab ripper in the mean time because my core strenght needed some help anyway as I noticed some pelvic shifting on my longer runs.  Nothing major just enought to be a royal pain so core workouts and upper body strength training here I come.  I wonder if punches while sitting in a chair would raise my heart rate enough for some cardio?
