ONE WEEK DOWN...

about 5-7 to go! I did absolutely NO training this week. None. Nada. Zero. Zip. How do I feel? Lazy and like a big fat pile of poo but it's all good. It's also interesting that I seem to eat more and be more tired when I DON'T work out.

I supposedly have only one more week on the stupid crutches. Here are some things that I noticed this past week being on crutches:

- Going to the bathroom in the middle of the night is difficult. I tried using the crutches one night but stumbled because I was half asleep. So now... I keep the desk chair (that's on wheels) next to the bed and roll over the bathroom. So much easier. Although B is not too happy with my great idea because it is quite loud and wakes him up.

- It's hard to push a grocery cart with crutches. I went to Costco and realized that I would have a tough time pushing the cart. So...I hopped on one of the sit-down carts and did my shopping that way. Again, much easier. The only embarrassing part of the sit-down cart was that it beeps when you go backwards. It's not a quiet beep either. I think all of Costco knew I was backing up.

- I'm sure there is more but that was all that happened this week that I can remember.

I actually don't think I really need the crutches but I'm trying to follow the doctors orders. I have no pain unless I stand on my foot barefoot (when I shower). Other than that I don't feel much pain.

More later.

That's hilarious that you roll on the chair and used a sit down cart! Would've loved to have seen that.
