Billy put on his apron last night and got to work in the kitchen because it is logical that he cook after studying and school for 15 hours that day because I was to busy laying in bed catching up on old episodes of The OC. That is how to make a marriage work.
I did do my part to add some carbs to the meal (because it was obviously lacking them) and made the garlic toast in the back.
Followed shortly by some Swedish Fish from my cutest friend Pam L:) She is right….”Swedish Fish are made in Canada! Canadian Fish just don’t have the same ring.” They were great fuel for a late night yoga class with my cousin.
Judging from the x-ray’s we are on the road to recovery with the femur(s)……..dare I tell you the truth? Yep, it is both of them….the right one is really minor but I have had an itching that it was also fractured since the beginning but it only hurt about 1/10 as bad as the left (I am the champion of denial and just thought I was imagining things). On the VERY bright side, both of them are recovering quite nicely.
No one is allowed to say I am sorry or that it is sad because I knew deep down for the past month or so that both legs were injured and it isn’t like it is going to take any longer to heal. It’s all good because they are both healing at the same rate and I am actually really happy because I am learning there is a lot more to me than just a runner.
Someone sent me this quote…I forgot who so please forgive me but I absolutely love it…..
“When we feel stuck…going nowhere….even starting to slip backward-we might actually be backing up to get a running start.”
This whole injury thing is going to make me a SMARTER, stronger runner and who knows what what running start I am going to have…….I foresee big things up ahead:)
I was able to talk to the doctor for 90 minutes…yep, my doc rocks and actually spends time with his patients answering all of their questions plus I mean I am pretty funny so who wouldn’t want to spend quality time with me. We talked a whole lot about calories. To get these bones whole FAST and to make sure I get a cycle that is natural and that it isn’t just caused by birth control I gotta focus in on calories among the MANY other things I am doing to heal. This will also help prevent future injuries from occurring.
Basically, we just want to make sure that I am getting more than enough (and from the right sources) calories to keep up with my physical activity and excessive energy. It is just one more thing I can do to speed up recovery. I have no idea where I am at with calories because I eat what I want and when I want it, he just wants me to keep track so that we can make sure it is the right amount because it takes a whole lot of ice cream cones to build bones again.
P.S. I promise we won’t be talking about injuries forever, girly thingee’s, or how I am 96% brain dead and before you know it I will be doing treadmill marathons again (okay, that is a lie….those are the sort of things that got me in trouble in the first place).
I don’t really have anything to say with this post and really just wanted feedback from all of my best friends and what you do……
Do you count calories? Do you estimate? Do you eat according to feel or ‘suggested calories’? In the past have you counted calories? Do you like it/hate it? Why? Do you think it is helpful/hurtful for you? Do you keep a log?
