Today's Inspiration, and the PLAN

Well hopefully I can drive tomorrow, as I've made an appointment with an Ortho at Palm Beach Orthopaedics. Theoretically I'm picking up the MRI tomorrow and then heading up there. I told them that the results showed no tissue damage or displacement, but that I needed to be sure I'm doing all the things I need to be doing so I can be confident that when it's time for me to go back to PL, I'll be safe/ready to do so. So whatever rehab, etc...I'm there.

There's a test drive session in my future this afternooon...maybe just around the neighborhood :)

Plan makes me feel better. Even if it's not even a plan yet - just the plan for a plan :)

I've also decided that I'm counting all of this as part of my training. Damn straight. Come back will be even stronger.

Also - as far as food, I'm going to try to be accountable here..."Injury is not a path back to obesity, bad choices, or anything else." I'll repeat it, until I believe it.

With that in mind, last night I was proud of me...throughout the day yesterday I ate when I felt hungry and I made healthy, tasty choices - I didn't eat to a predetermined plan, just did what *felt* right. At the end of the day, I logged everything and came in right around 1450 cals at 45/30/25 :) I was pretty happy with's building trust. That's the greater lesson that will come out of all of this, I feel like that was a good start :)

And today, this is my inspiration:

  1. Good luck with the drive!

    It would be really good if you can get some kind of PT "plan" - it will give you something to focus on and you will know that you are making progress towards getting better.

    Can you do seated upper body work? Nothing like you're used to, but it will be something.

  2. Exactly what I'm hoping for tomorrow, Coco.
    Next post - today's workout :) (so yes, upper body work = possible)
