Well, actually, I’ll have to go off my Monday weigh-in today as I really don’t think its possible to get an accurate weigh-in on crutches. That’s right ladies and gents CRUTCHES. My oh-so graceful self fell down a couple brick stairs carrying a basket of laundry last night (the laundry room in our apartment complex is in a different building). It was dark and I am clumsy. Those two things don’t go too well together. But the good news was that I didn’t spill the laundry! The basket stayed upright. LOL. After the fall I somehow managed to get myself and the laundry back to my apartment and waited for John to come home (he and Abby had went to a youth basketball game). My ankle was already starting to swell and turn colors by the time he arrives. Thankfully we have some wonderful friends nearby who watched Abby while we went to the ER.
Thankfully the ER was practically empty when we arrived and we were in and out in a little over an hour (thankfully we arrived when we did because on our way out there was actually a huge line just to check-in). After a couple x-rays, the doc let us know the bad news which was that I didn’t have a fracture (hey those were her words!). Instead I just had a nasty sprain which may take just as long or longer to heal than if I had fractured it. So they wrapped it and sent me home with an ice bag and some crutches. Ugly gray crutches. I have decided a business that I would like to start. I want to make rockin’ crutches, canes, and wheelchair covers. I was just thinking about all of the children, teens, and heck young adults that spend a lot of time either in a wheel chair or using crutches or canes and dangit they deserve to have some cool options such as hot pink crutches (which I would much rather be sporting) or a superman wheelchair. Just a thought that I had while waiting in the exam room last night.
But this is suppose to be a post about my weigh-in right? Since I can’t get on the scale today, I will post my weight from Monday. My weight Monday was 161.4 which was the exact same as last week’s weigh-in. No gain or loss which I will take since I definitely wasn’t as on-task as I should have been. It just stinks that for the next couple weeks, I will be very limited in working out so I will have to be very very cautious of my diet and be sure that I go back to writing everything down. I’m just disappointed that I probably will not make my 3 month goal BUT I will not let that stop me from trying my hardest to get there!
Starting weight: 164.4
3 month goal (3/9/10): 149.4
Last weigh-in: 161.4
Today’s weigh-in: 161.4
Overall Change: -3
