I almost made my 14,000 step goal for last week, but as I stated in my last post, it caused some pretty significant discomfort. I'm scaling back to 10,500 steps for this week and just trying to focus on resting and getting ready for my next big challenge - driving my car. Technically, I was cleared to drive at 2 weeks post op, but only if my range of motion wasn't limited by pain. I'm hoping to be behind the wheel again by the end of this week as I have to drive myself to Wichita next week.
My friend came up to visit this week end and we ate so much food (really, my stomach is now eating the band of my underpants). It was so nice to hang out with a friend and just have fun! She told me that she isn't surprised that I haven't been feeling well because all I do is get up and down up and down. So, there you have it; my idea of doing nothing may not indeed equivocate to actually doing nothing.
I have another friend coming up this week to teach me the ins and outs of Pokemon Go. I never actually watched the TV show, but I am deeply amused by how the little critters show up on my sofa. I'm also hoping that the game will help me transition into walking outside and eventually into getting more steps and a safe work out while I'm waiting to heal enough to go back to the gym.
My husband and I are hoping to start back with the Whole 30 in the next week or so. He's gonna help me prep ingredients so that it's easier to get everything put together during the week. Eating more fruits and veggies and cutting out sugar can only help me get better (and hopefully stronger). Right now, I look forward most to sleeping on my side and shaving my legs.
