My younger son is now 13 months old and I’m still struggling to get back to my pre-baby #1 weight. Every time I get into a good groove, something happens. Case in point: I was taking up running and was going to run the “Storm the Bastille” 5k earlier this month. Started training back in March or so and a few days into it, I experienced severe back pain. Went to the chiropractor and he told me no jogging for the next 12 weeks while he treated me. That 12 weeks flew by but things got busy at work so I didn’t jump back in right away.
After realizing that early morning is the only time that I can fit exercise in, I started getting up at 5:30 to get a 35-45 minute walk in before the rest of the family gets up. And if you know me well, you know that this is quite impressive as I’m NOT a morning person. Got into the groove there for about 2 weeks and was sometimes getting out for a walk twice a day. I was on a roll! Then a week ago Saturday, I was innocently walking out the back door into the garage when my ankle gave out and down I went. One trip to the ER and a visit to an orthopedic surgeon a couple days later and I’m in a brace/air cast contraption and unable to exercise for the next 4-6 weeks. Perhaps this is a sign that I’m doomed to be a spectator and not a participant. What a bummer.
The Daily Krier is running commentary on what's happening in my life on a regular basis. I write about things that interest me -- my family, my hobbies, my career in marketing. The blog was born from my interest in writing, my need to become more involved in all things related to social media, and my desire to start on my personal brand. The blog title is a play on my last name. It's technically pronounced "kreer" but everyone pronounces it as "cry-er". The mis-pronounciation lends itself extremely well to the title, don't you think?
