The past two weeks have been a bit crazy, but things are calming down, finally. I am able to finally take a Sunday off, whoohoo!
I haven’t mentioned this before, but I recently tore a ligament in my right ankle. I’m not even sure how or when this happened; I actually found out by accident while investigating Achilles tendonitis. I’ve been in a boot for just over a month now, which means I’ve been working upstairs instead of in my basement office. 😦 My pain level is considerably low when in the boot. I am supposed to be weaning myself off it and unfortunately, I’ve had pain each time I’ve tried to go without it. My doctor initially said I may need surgery on both the ligament and my Achilles tendon. I am hoping that doesn’t happen. 😦 Anyway, this week was an extremely frustrating week with my ligament. I am hoping things get better.
Here’s the rundown:

Chocolate consumption report: Dark chocolate Dove hearts (from hubby), Mini York peppermint patties, chocolate/peppermint cookies, s’mores hot chocolate, chocolate cupcakes….yeah, I haven’t exactly deprived myself, regardless of my decision to try to limit candy/chocolate/junk food.

Hope your ligaments get better soon!
Merci beaucoup, Ruichan!
Good job on your goals! Glad to see your ankle isn’t stopping you. Hope it heals soon, and have a great week! And now after seeing your chocolate consumption report, I need to go make some stevia-sweetened peanut butter cups LOL.
Thanks, Jennette! The peanut butter cups sound awesome!
Good luck with that ankle. I was in a boot for six weeks last year for the same thing and a tear in my foot. The doctor offered me surgery and I was like, I will avoid that at all costs. But sure enough, a few weeks after being out of the boot and some days, that pain is right back again. Still too bull-headed for surgery and really don’t want to start wearing that boot again. Not sure what I’m going to do about it. Hope it all heals up for you!
Sorry to hear that, Chris! At this point, I’m all for surgery because I have stuff to do that requires walking and I am not a fan of chronic pain. 😦 But if we can still avoid it…somehow…that’d be better.;)
For logging food – sometimes it’s easier to take a picture of the food while it’s hot (also great for insta photos) then put it in the tracker later that day. Sorry to hear about the torn ligament, that’s rough.
Thanks, Shannon! Taking pics of food and logging later sounds like a great idea! Been meaning to do more with Instagram.
Ouch! I hope your ankle feels better soon.It’s awesome that you’re making progress with your goals even though you can’t make it into your office.
Thank you, rayoffingsunshine (love that name)!
Feel better soon. Nice job with your progress even with all the issues. 😃
