Now I need to get realistic here.
I haven't enjoyed trying to do a stationary bike, for 2 reasons. It's in the shop, with Husband's equipment. Husband has to wear earplugs when he works. If I want to use the bike, so do I. And, it HURTS to use the bike. Let's just say I get raging Monkey Butt and leave it there, ok? : (
(We don't have room in the house for the bike, and Husband is using it, too.)
Husband has asked that I not walk on the hill. So I have tried walking on the road with mixed success. I found that we have way too much traffic on the main road for me to feel comfortable walking there. The neighbors have a doberman. The doberman hates me, and has come just short of cornering me twice when I walk that way. So I am limited to a walk to the intersection and back, the other direction, and that works. But I am walking on roadbed, not dirt. I walk an hour, and pay for it for about two days. This isn't motivation to make me want to continue...
And I have had something new. I am getting downright timid. I haven't been timid about trying to climb things, or go places, but the other day Husband wanted me to climb a ladder. I was shaking a bit. Now, I am healed up. I am more or less 100 percent. But I am worried I might... I don't know what, break the other leg? Bend the metal I have in the healed leg? ???
I have an appointment with my doctor Monday, I want to discuss some possible solutions. (Different shoes? Different diet? Locking me in a cell with bread and water until next year???)
I am trying to decide what to do here, as well. I thought about opening another blog, strictly for the weight biz.
Not sure I want to do that, as I would probably slack on it as "just one more thing to do". I thought maybe of making an "upper" and "lower" blog, the upper with my daily doings, the lower with my scale saga. I thought for about a minute of weighing every day, but I don't want to drive myself crazy (er), I get nauseated when I go on the scale once a week.
So, for any of you that want to be a mentor, advocate, teacher, or even just get rid of two cents, have you any ideas for the blog? Hopefully allowing me to have feed back, but wouldn't be the "Oh, G*d, she's writing about THAT again..." blog? Any ideas would be appreciated, I do read my comments! (And even answer them, on occasion...)
