Clumsy is my middle name. I had hoped to clean up our training room at home so that I could start working out again with Daily Burn. Sometimes the best plans don’t work out. Last week I was at work and went downstairs to pick up some food I had ordered and decided in my infinite wisdom to cut underneath the stair case to meet the delivery guy. The flooring under there is the color of marble and there is a planters ledge, without plants, surrounding the stair case that’s the same color. When looking at the floor, the colors all blended, not giving a sense that it wasn’t all flat. I didn’t see the ledge and ran right into it, sending me flying in slow mo, across the floor and landing directly on my knees. The pain was insane. A few people witnessed it, including the delivery guy. I quickly exchanged a tip for my food and went back upstairs to deal with the pain.
I hadn’t felt pain like this since breaking my toe years back. Worse than the pain was the embarrassment that I felt. People asking me if I was ok and my work mates seeing me like that was hard. The thought that maybe this fall wouldn’t hurt as much if I weighed less started plaguing my mind and still does as I write this. I don’t want to be in a situation, at my age (47), where I fall and can’t get up because of my weight. That just isn’t acceptable.
The doctor checked me out and I should be ok to work out in a week. Right now I can’t kneel down or put pressure on my knees. My work needed volunteers to help move computers this weekend and I wasn’t able to help out. This situation is not the bees knees. I haven’t had much good luck this year so far but I have to keep going. I think I can get the training room ready this week while I continue to heal so that I’m ready to get going again with working out soon. I’ve been thinking about training for a bike ride in May. A goal is always a good thing for motivation. I need to see how working out goes before I commit.
Wish me luck on getting the room ready and for my knees to heal quickly.
See you soon! Eat well and prosper!
