Speechless? You may ask, “Are you ill?” Or “Lost your voice?” Nope, just shocked into silence. For once, I didn’t know what to say.
Just yesterday I posted my new resolution for April. I wrote about my efforts to slow down, just breathe and keep moving. Well it appears I have not been a good post-op patient and these new found skills are not doing spit-ola to help. (Yes, spit-ola is a word.) Breathing is over-rated.
Yesterday, I called my doctor because my foot has been swelling. I noticed it Saturday after Zumba and again Monday morning after spinning. Notice I said spinning after Zumba. (I’m a little slow on the up-take.) I went to his office today and after examination and x-ray, he told me I had stress fractures in my foot. The surgery had healed beautifully but the foot is broken and I am back in the boot for three weeks. He told me to stay off it. Right-O.
Negativity is not part of my makeup but I have to tell you, I am unhappy right now. This is not the worst thing. It isn’t cancer or disease. It isn’t life threatening although if I don’t get back to my workout routine, someone’s life my be threatened.
I asked myself, “What have you done? Is it karma?”
My mother called tonight convinced I did this carrying her 11.2 pound free ham throughout Shoprite. Good old Italian guilt. Next she asked if I did it making mac n’ cheese in the crock pot. Nope. Not that.
So here I sit with this boot. Does anyone have any decorating skills? Bed-dazzling tools or beading that we can dress up this boot? I need some positive energy, a crystal, an intervention, anything.
Stay tuned. Even my trainer suggested that we wait until Tuesday to meet. He said he would work my upper body and core. I can’t empty a pot of spaghetti without my arms shaking. He has his work cut out for him. Spin ‘doctors’ Meghan, Adrean and Michelle: keep bike 95 for me, tell him I’ll be back soon and keep negative karma away from him. Only happy people.
Now help a girl out and post on this website some encouraging words. Either that or I am going to Plane’s Bike shop and begging them to put a clip on the bottom of this boot for spinning. Spinning is staying off it…..right?
Here is something positive, I think. I am amazed by positive people like you. I have to work to be positive. You have a gift. You can look at this little set back in your whole life as an opportunity to keep writing more. I am not the least bit Italian, but I love your blog posts! They always make me laugh and stop to think about the important things in life. So keep on keepin’ on!
