Hi, friends! I’m back with another edition of This Is Life where I recap a full day in my life. It’s meant to show you what I do and eat on a daily basis. This recap is from last Friday!
4:30 a.m. – Alarm goes off. Go downstairs to make my ACV and daily detox. Leave for the gym.
6:00 a.m. – Showered and did upper body work.
7:15 a.m. – Home! I change my clothes for my orthopedic appointment while I make my coffee with collagen and almond milk.
7:45 a.m. – Read emails and blogs and look over client paperwork while I eat.
8:15 a.m. – Leave for the orthopedic for an 8:30 a.m. appointment.
9:45 a.m. – FINALLY see the orthopedic. I swear I’m going to start charging doctors for my time.
The doctor examines my leg. I tell her about my complicated stress fracture history, which she says she noted in my chart because I’ve seen other specialists there. She tells me she’s confident it’s bursitis and not a stress fracture, but she’s willing to order an MRI given my history. I tell her I want the MRI.
11:00 a.m. – Arrive at my MRI appointment. They did a stat order and got me in right away.
12:15 p.m. – I’m home, start making lunch (avocado wasabi salad with tuna) when the doctor calls. I know this can’t be good she’s calling me so soon.
She tells me it’s a stress reaction, and although there isn’t a line yet there is swelling in the bone which means it was caught early before it became a stress fracture. She tells me I need to be on crutches at least another 2 weeks (I’d already been on them 2 weeks before my appointment) until I see her again.
12:45 p.m. – The guy calls, says he wants to see the radiology report (he’s a physical therapist) and doesn’t agree with the doctor that I need to be non-weight bearing for 6 weeks considering I’m already so much better. I agree and tell him I think the doctor is being overly precautious because of my history and doesn’t realize how fast I recover. Considering she didn’t believe it was a stress fracture, she lost credibility!
1:10 p.m. – Mom texts me. I call her and tell her what’s going on. I swear people in my life have ESP!
1:30 p.m. – FINALLY eat lunch and start work for the day. Finish editing photos for the Facebook live recipe I filmed earlier in the week. This one will be on the blog next week!
6:30 p.m. – We’re here and I really needed this vodka soda. I could’ve had 10 more!
7:30 p.m. – Dinner is served! Cedar planked salmon with veggies. YUM!
9:00 p.m. – After lots of laughing, we’re ready to leave. Laughing with friends always makes a bad thing better!
9:30 p.m. Home. The guy meets me there. We attempt to watch a movie, but instead complain about our bodies (he has gout) and fall asleep on the couch. LOL
And this is life…
