I am only three weeks into Year Two of my health and fitness program, but it has been SEVEN WEEKS since Molly and I collided and I walked away with a broken arm. (Literally walked away! We were at the dog park a few blocks from home, so we had to walk home. Ouch, ouch, ouch!)
I think that I am healing quite well. The fractures in my proximal humurus and humurus head do not bother me at all. I do feel frequent and considerable pain in my shoulder, elbow, and wrist. Go figure. I am pretty sure I pulled or tore something in my shoulder, but I am three weeks from getting my ultrasound report so who knows. This morning, I had ripping pain down my right side from my shoulder, down my arm, and down my side from my armpit to under my ribs. Since I did not injure my right side in my fall, I have to assume it was either sympathy for my left side or something I pulled compensating for my left side. Who knows?
Either way, that brings me to where I am at with my physical health and fitness levels. I think I am doing okay all things considered. I work out, try to sleep well, try to eat healthy, take my vitamins and beet juice, and try to get outside for a bit of fresh air every day. 🤗
Mentally and emotionally, I have struggled a bit this past week. It’s nothing serious – just frustration, sadness, and good old grumpiness. Nothing debilitating for sure, but something I have had to work on.
- I have backed away from checking my online ‘Fractured Humurus Group’. There is way more bad news than good and it just isn’t helping me. I do still drop in once or twice a day and send ‘Caring Hugs’ to those who are struggling, but I don’t let myself get too engaged.
- I have made daily accomplishments a priority. Yesterday I made breakfast for Dan and I, did dishes, vacuumed, dusted, cleaned and re-assembled our humidifier, made a dental appointment, AND I did our taxes!!!
- I have been meditating every day. I think that is really helping me to feel more grounded and focused. It also is helping me to sleep better.
- I have been watching You Tube video clips of comedy sketches – mostly ‘Golden Girls’ and ‘Bob Newhart’. I wasn’t really a fan of ‘Golden Girls’ when it was on tv, but their clips are funny. I always loved ‘Bob Newhart’ – especially Larry and his brothers Darryl and Darryl. 🤣🤣🤣
My efforts seem to be helping to get my mental and emotional self in a better place. And… Our March sunshine isn’t hurting the cause. 🌞
That is my health and well-being update for this week.
Take care and have a great week! 💞🤗
