Week two of recovery from ACL surgery has done much better. The staples are gone. I’ve been doing upper body workouts. Also, I still have wine.
If you’ve been following along, the week following my ACL surgery was NOT fun. It was so much worse than I’d anticipated; I’m still not sure I’d do it again. Apparently using my patellar tendon to replace my ACL was the most painful way possible I could have done this.
That said, this week is 100x better. I’ve been 80% off crutches for 3 days now, and I’ve hobbled around the gym twice! Vegas take me to workout and hands me weights. Walking around with more than a couple of pounds in my arms isn’t feasible yet.
I’ve also started PT. She said I’m doing well for being just under 2 weeks post-op. I have a little bit of an easier time with mobility because I’m naturally hyper-mobile. Finally that’s working in my favor… usually it just means I get hurt more. *sigh*
Vegas brings me coffee to bed, but I’m now able to drag my leg downstairs to make our morning cocktail.
I eked out an at-home bicep and ab workout (below) before making both of us yogurt bowls. I piled them high with berries, cinnamon, and hemp hearts. Easy and refreshing!
Day 10 post-ACL surgery. I got a bicep and ab workout in this morning at home, had a delicious Greek yogurt bowl with berries, and now I'm off to my first PT appointment! I love having this cute Free Sprit notebook to write workout in. It helps me stay on track and avoid distractions. That was part of this month's @popsugarmh box treats. It's their 5th anniversary so they're offering a bigger discount that usual. Go to this link to get yours: http://bit.ly/2vioThn. Use the discount code PARTY for $10 off your FIRST box. (Clickable link in today's favorite things blog post. 😉) How are you stay on track with workouts?
Since we were already out, Vegas and I tried out a new-to-us spot for lunch. She was sold on the name – Beerfish.
I ordered a crab cocktail and a wedge salad with a glass of rosé. Vegas order a plate of fried things and a beer. I acted like I was judging… but I ate most of her fries. 😉
Dinner was a group effort. Vegas took the Honey Mustard Chicken to the grill while I roasted veggies for our Hello Fresh meal. We ordered another round this week because I’m not up to doing much cooking yet. I’m going to keep doing these periodically though; its so nice to have something easy (and tasty) on hand.
There’s a review and $30 discount code are on my previous post. That post was sponsored; however, my subsequent orders are all on my own. Two thumbs up.
I hope you enjoyed my day of post-surgery eats. Be sure to link up to Jenn’s WIAW baby below.
I can’t wait until the 2 month mark. Apparently that’s when life gets easier.
Are cooking duties shared at your house?
Do you jack your spouse’s fries?
