UPDATE: 1/15/19: Every day is getting better and closer to my goals. I have several cute shoes with heels that range in height and width. Can't wait to see what all i accomplish in 2019!!!!

2 months ago a simple clumsy fall caused a dislocated and shattered ankle. Now 2 surgeries, 2 plates, 1 rod and more screws that I care to count, severally set me back and prevented moving forward. During all of this, I was repeatedly asked “how did I do this?”. I thought about telling them it was a skiing accident on a black diamond slope but, alas, I was spring cleaning and simply took a bad step. Lucky me…(eye roll). I know all too well, the anger and frustration that comes with not being able to move or do things for yourself. I watched as my weight went up, muscle tone went down and in the case of the injured leg, the muscle and flexibility completely vanished. I'm usually a short cut kind of gal concerning weight loss/fitness but, this was and still is something that I make sure I follow the doctor's instructions, actually attend and practice the physical therapy sessions and hold back on pushing myself too far. My workouts are extremely modified and seem to take longer but, things are looking up. Goals I have other than weight loss, are getting back into my running shoes and my stilettos.
Ps: With all the hardware in my right foot/ankle and also the rods, etc. in my right arm from a previous accident, my son thinks it’s kinda cool that I’m almost halfway to becoming a human/robot hybrid. lol Plus, before a stretch or workout session, I kind of remind myself of the tin man from the Wizard of Oz when he's in need of his oil can.

    Through SparkPeople we have learned there are no short cuts to a healthy and fit lifestyle. I don't use the word "diet" as it doesn't last as long as a healthy and fit lifestyle. Keep Sparking into the next decade!
