Bravo bravo.

 

You're soooo good at the ankle rehab stuff.     I was so so bad at it.

According to plan is good!

 

Without a plan there's no action, without action, no victory!

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh man, if you ever want to weep, look up the dessert buffet at the Wicked Spoon. There are pictures on the internet. I could just cry about all those desserts. I had such a hard time not stuffing myself like a little piglet!

I want to do aerial silks so bad. Someday I will get there. Someday. In the mean time, I'm going to sub here and watch you.

 

Have fun on your vacation!

 

I still haven't tried it myself, so!  Someday we both will!  I've been watching Cirque du Soleil for two nights running so I'm so fired up.

I love it too!  I don't gamble or drink or club, but I love the shows ans the food and all the lights!

 

It's been so fun so far.  Today's our last day - about to go out and make the most of it!

 

 

You are a flawless human being, Zuul.

Day 4


 


Yesterday was exactly what it needed to be - a morning and afternoon at a really nice spa, a fancy sushi dinner, and more Cirque du Soleil whereupon I made grabby hands at all the aerial artists.  Also, there was a gym!


 


Yesterday's summary:


  • Goal 1: 4/7
    • Ankle mobility exercises done!

    • Walked for about two miles to dinner/the show and back

    • Most notably - I walked a short distance without the brace!  Without pain!  HUZZAH!  This makes showring worlds easier!

    • On the downside, I tried swimming and discovered the motion required of my foot is still not happening so... no training in swimming for at least another week or two, ah well.  Floating was had.


  • Goal 2: 2/3
    • Did leg extensions and hamstring curls as part of my second weights circuit at the spa's gym

    • Did my ankle strengthening stuff... plus, you know, walked brace-less!


  • Goal 3: 2/3
    • Did 3 sets of 8 lat pull downs a 82.5 pounds.  Going for 90 on Sunday when I get back to my regular gym!


Also, got a massage (which was heavenly) and a facial and have been watching acrobats all week and dreaming about aerial training, hnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng.  So much want.  HEAL FASTER, FOOT.  GET STRONGER FASTER, BACK AND SHOULDERS.

Congrats on your braceless walking! I'm impressed with the continued progress while on vacation.

 

Thanks!  I'm getting back to where I started, bit by bit!

 

Awesome progress, so glad you're able to walk a little w/o the brace and w/o pain! I know the distance will keep increasing. It's inspiring to see how driven you are to succeed.

 

Thank you!  I definitely have drive in spades - I want to go back to moving with ease so badly that it's very motivating to keep working on it!!!

 

Congrats on painless, braceless walking! That's fantastic! Every step counts :D You can do this! 

 

Thanks!  I kicked Assassin bonus challenge butt this week generally with all the walking I did.  Woo!

 

That all sounds so awesome! Congrats on going braceless and easier showering! 

 

Yessssss the showering!  So pleased about this.  No more handicapped shower, I am so thrilled.

 

I am here for the funny motion pictures...

 

Oh and to support you of course, cuz you know, you rock.

 

keep on keeping on!

 

Awwwww, thanks~! ^_^  I'll keep on keeping on... and once I've caught up from vacation, check in on your no doubt phenomenal progress too!

 

Yay, braceless walking!  That must have felt great :)  Also I am super jealous of all this massage/facial/Cirque stuff.  Such heavenly.  Very vacation. Wow...

 

It was so fantastic!  But honestly, I am happy and relieved to be home... it was so hot and exhausting that routine is looking pretty freaking nice right about now.

Day 5


 


Oh look, catch-up time!  I am home at last!  Some thoughts at the bottom, but first, let's look back in time~ ^_^


 


Friday's summary:


  • Goal 1: 5/7
    • Ankle mobility exercises done!

    • 4.5 hours of walking total in about 13 hours out and about... lots of breaks and sitting and sipping iced green tea, but still, I aced the walking!


Day 6


 


Another day spent in the car, capped off with a freezing shower since the gas in our house was switched off due to a leak, sigh.  But I persevered somehow.


 


Yesterday's summary:


  • Goal 1: 6/7
    • Ankle mobility exercises done before the trip, on the road, and again before bed

    • I made a point to get out and walk a little at every rest stop (including once without the brace!) and considering my foot was still very tired from Friday's epic feats of epicness, this was just about the right amount


The trip in general was fabulous, but very hot and exhausting and frankly, I am thrilled to be home.  My friend leaves tomorrow, and then life will go back to dull and simultaneously glorious routine.  I got a lot of inspiration (and motivation) for my circus arts aspirations, and despite eating dessert every single day, the obsessive calorie counting I engaged in paid off, as I weighed in this morning 2.2lbs lighter than last week. ^_^  Also, a personal victory: in Vegas, aside from food, I bought myself exactly one thing - a $20 straw hat to replace the one I had forgotten at home (with my skin, it's wear a hat or burn to a crisp, even with sunblock, so I consider this purchase a necessity not unlike toothpaste).  I resisted all the pretty, shiny things!  No jewelry!  No clothes!  No souvenirs of any kind!  Just a fun time with people I care about without unnecessary extra expenditures.  I'm really pleased about this. ^_^


 


Today, I'll go to the gym and polish off my goals for week one.  I'll do a write-  Tomorrow, once my friend is gone, I will be blitzing through everyone's threads (sorry for my silence this week, I swear I still care!!!) and playing catch-up with everything ever.  I'm so glad to be back, and so exhausted.  :sleeping:

Day 7


 


I feel like that hedgehog today, honestly, but I am pleased, too.  I made a plan, I followed through, and I finished the hardest week of my challenge at 100%.  It's all downhill from here!


 


Today's summary:


  • Goal 1: 7/7
    • Ankle mobility exercises done!  Only resistance bands left, and that's scheduled for right before bed, when I have the lovely wife to help me.

    • Walked around Ulta and Ross.  Notably, walked between Ulta and Ross instead of taking the car.

    • Walked up and down the never-ending stairs to the choir loft at work.


  • Goal 2: 3/3
    • Did leg extensions and hamstring curls, upping my weight on both!


  • Goal 3: 3/3
    • Did 3 sets of 4 assisted pull-ups.  Yeah!  I used to fail out at 3 per set.


 


WEEK ONE SUMMARY


  • Goal 1: 100%

  • Goal 2: 100%

  • Goal 3: 100%

  • Life Goal: N/A

WEEK 1 GRADE: A+
