Default Ouch! That wasn't fun.

Well, i was taking my walk yesterday and took a dive. My one ankle twisted and when i looked to see what was going on, the other one twisted and i fell. I scraped the heck out of my shin but otherwise felt ok so i kept walking (i had only just started my daily walk).

Today when i woke up... omg... EVERYTHING hurt. Both thighs are shot, like the muscle is pulled, one ankle feels really *loose*, the other sore, and my wrist/forearm is jacked up.. not to mention an infection trying to take hold of my shin (got that under control now i think).

Ugh. I have had 2 back surgeries and falls are one of my big fears. I didn't hurt my back so that's REALLY good.

I got my GoWear Fit today too! I am taking it easy this weekend (unless i feel better quickly) so i'll get to see what a "typical" day is for me.

I eat 1800 calories a day and my weight loss has really stalled. After having a few good weeks it just slowed and now goes up and down a lot. Maybe 1800 is to much for me to lose on but after i see what i burn i'll know more.

Sorry for the book, i'm usually not chatty here but had to share my big goofball move.

Oh no, ouch. I hope it heals quickly for you. Is there somewhere you could swim some laps? Maybe that could help and it would be low impact on your joints.

Hi there! Sorry you took a tumble. I've done the same myself. The only thing worse is if EVERYONE was watching!
Please keep an eye on how you feel and get to the hospital/doctor if things are slow to heal...
Hang in there!

And Cinnamon -- there's really not anywhere here to swim until it warms up, then the ocean is free

Ouch! Take care of yourself, Nikki --- we need you with both feet strong and ready for some serious fat stomping!

(I suddenly have this image of a bunch of ladies from 100+ leaping around in a giant barrel that looks like an oversized wine barrel, except they are smooshing PoundsOfFat instead of grapes. I don't know what goes into the bottles at the end of the process, but I am NOT drinking it!!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvButzoSEPk

Make sure you give your ankles rest and tender care until they are back to 100%, gal --- shall I send you one of the 3fc cyber-therapists to rub your feet for you? Seriously, hope you get back to 100% quickly.

I'm glad you're feeling better today. Falling is never fun, and I suspect even less so when you've had multiple back surgeries. Take care!
