Crunched, literally

That was some kind of break!  It's been so long since I've posted!  Here's what's been going on...

Just after the Christmas holidays, an ice storm hit the area, and I badly awkwardly, slipped and fell on some ice while I was coming down my front steps. Result: A bunch of broken and cracked bones. Including in my hands, leg, ribs. Of course it was my dominant hand that was broken! 

My body has healed and is pretty much back to normal, and physiotherapy has really helped. Being off work was tough; I didn't think I'd miss it, but I really did. I missed the work and the daily routine. So glad I have great health benefits! I had the hardest time with mobility of course, but also with being very dependant on people when I first had my accident. At first, even doing the most simple things was a chore.

This Summer, I was hospitalised with an infection. Fighting that off took a while, and lots of doctors visits. Ugh.

As for weight loss and exercise... well... not much happened on that front. I did keep an eye on food portions and tried to eat only when I was hungry, but I had a hard time moving, so I gained weight. This Spring, the first time I was able to weigh in without casts, I was at 212 lbs. 

And I just haven't felt like posting anything here. Not sure why... it's not like I've replaced it with Instagram, Snapchat, or whatever. I've been coasting, not overeating. I've not wanted to put in the work (tracking calories and exercise) to lose the weight, until now.  This morning I weighed in at 197.5 lbs. Time to move in the right direction! 


  1. From 212 to 197 is doing something whether it is deliberate or not. 2017 sounds like quite an ordeal - I can't even imagine what it must have been like to go through such a painful injury followed by infection and all the PT. Your poor body! And now you're back; committing. What a gift for you!

    1. Hi Lynne, thanks for stopping by, and for the nice words! I do hope my long string of bad luck is over :)
