As some of you may or may not know,
I tore my MCL.
Bummer, I know.
I have had to learn (against my will)
to slow down and let me tell you,
It is NOT easy.
Plus, I’ve had to wear a brace so I’ve literally been
moving at turtle speed.

Going from running, rollerblading, working three jobs
and everything in between to sitting on my couch
binge watching OITNB-
(which btw I really like and I don’t even watch TV!)
My life for the past few weeks
has literally gone from 100-0.

When my doctor told me that I had to stay off
my feet, it was like telling a bird not to fly.

So here are a few photos to show you
how little I’ve been doing lol


I have a lot of energy and like I’ve said,
It has not been easy.
But on the bright side,
I have an appointment tomorrow
at Mount Sinai’s Fracture Clinic
and I am so excited.

Catriona of Coco & Cowe reminded me
how important it was to listen to your body
and to take care of yourself
so that’s what I’ve been trying to do.

I usually push a little too hard and this time
I have to take this setback
as a reminder and lesson of life:
slow down and listen to my body.

So, like Catriona said here,
Self Care is extremely important.
You cannot do your best if you’re not feeling your best.

Off to bed I go;
time to recharge
