Just Some Things

Yesterday Green Day tickets for the show in STL went on sale to the general public, and Luke tried really hard to get a pair. He wanted to surprise me with them but they sold out too fast. Haha I figured I wasn’t going to be able to see that show anyway so I’m not too disappointed (he is thoug), but man you gotta give Luke credit for trying. He’s the best!! 😄

My sister’s cat is the sweetest thing ever. Just saying. Also, you should check out all of the videos on her YouTube channel. There’s a bunch of cuteness on there and you might just see some of my critters.

Still no running for me. ☹️ I’m still kinda limping around so that should just automatically mean there’s no way running can happen yet, but I think all runners tend to get a bit delusional when it comes to injuries. Especially if they aren’t running related. But anyway, my toe is healing! Most of the bruising and swelling is gone and I have full range of motion again, which is awesome! Now I’m just waiting for the remaining soreness to go away and for my nail bed to heal. It’s definitely getting there though. It’s starting to harden up a bit which is good, but it’s still kinda raw and bloody in a few places so I’m stuck wearing a bandage made of guaze and sports tape for now. 

At the moment I can only wear my left compression sock, but thats the shin that gives me problems, so I guess that works out.

Speaking of shins, all of this resting/compression sock wearing has made it feel 100% better. I guess now all that’s left to do is test it out of the road (preferably one that doesn’t have a ridiculous tilt in it), but like I said, that’s still got to wait for a bit. 

I’ve been doing too much resting. Obviously I needed to stay off my foot, but I still could have been doing some easy sitting down stretching, a few body weight exercise, and at the very least I could have eaten better…I tend to be an all or nothing kinda person when it comes to that kind of thing. I’ve been doing a lot of sitting, junk food eating, TV watching, and just feeling sorry for myself in general. I’m officially stopping that today though. At the very least I’m going to start eating better today. 

We’ve gotten a few glimpses of fall here in Kansas!! We’ve also had some flash backs of the summer heat. Hahaha you gotta love the crazy Midwest weather…but after all the thunderstorms we’ve had, it it officially looking like things are going to start cooling down some and I really really hope it does! I’m so ready for the colder months!! The other day Luke brought home a pumpkin and some pumpkin cookies because he knows I’ve been absolutely dying for anything and everything that has to do with the fall. Have I mentioned how awesome he is? 😊

So basically, over the last week my life has revolved around Green Day (but when doesn’t my life revolve around them?😉), cute animal videos, basic first aid, and wishing fall would get here already. I guess you could say I’m working an my patience and failing horribly at it. 😂

So that’s what’s up with me, what’s up with you? 😁

    Oh these freakin runner injuries 😧 Ya know I’ve been doing the same thing sitting around eating everything that wasn’t nailed down! That has gotta stop. But today I did go for about a 4 mile walk. And came home used the foam roller and did some stretches. Not sure how soon I’ll be running but it’s going to be slow whenever it is..take care of yourself 😉

      That’s awesome!! I managed to put in 5 miles in on my stationary bike. At least we both got up and moving today!😄 Haha I still need to work on the whole eating right thing though.
