Aaah, I got the all clear from the physical therapist to do something other than bike at the gym! And of course I hit the elliptical right away when I went to the Y tonight and it was so nice. I missed the elliptical. Time flew by on it while I listened to my iPod and read the latest issue of Health magazine. I logged 35 minutes on there, lifted a full circuit of weights and biked for 17 minutes.
I was released from my doc and PT care today and that is a huge relief. I still have to be careful with both of my ankles, but the PT seemed to think I look pretty strong when she assessed me. I still need to ice and do exercises to strengthen my feet. I can handle that so I can regain my strength.
Breakfast this morning was Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal. It was tasty, of course!

I happen to be a healthy living blogger who loves German candy. Chocolate and gummies are weaknesses. I went to a grocery story after my physical therapy appointment this afternoon and I know they have Haribo Frogs there. I have not purchased this since maybe spring of this year. I couldn’t resist the temptation today.
I got up at my normal time today, but hit the gym from 6 a.m. to 7:10 a.m. and showered after. I had half of a Balance bar before heading out the door.
I had to go to an urgent care center after 8:30 a.m. to get my foot checked out, so I decided to go to the gym before heading to that appointment. It felt good to workout in the morning, but also kind of odd. Even though I was there for an hour plus, I wanted to stay at the gym and do more, but I knew I couldn’t because I had to get going. That is why I like going in the afternoon–it doesn’t really matter if I stay longer. Today’s workout included biking for a half hour and I lifted all arm weights.
