Good morning and TGIF! Ready for the weekend? We are supposed to have another RAINY three-day event starting tomorrow. I am actually ok with that as Saturday and Sunday I have LIVE webinars from IIN.
I saw the doctor yesterday. In his words, I can start LIGHT activity. Not far, not fast, and not often, but LIGHT activity were his specific instructions. But, I also need to do better about elevating my leg and icing it throughout the day. I was hoping to go walk with hubby and our friend J last night, but by the time I got home for work and a work event, my leg was pretty swollen. So, I was a good patient and got in bed to elevate and ice. I certainly don’t want to rush recovery and injure my leg even worse.
Did you enjoy yesterday’s pinning party? To continue the love for Pinterest, I brought you a guest post with some fabulous yoga and fitness pinterest boards.
