136.0…Keeping A Leg Up

The doctor told me the best thing to do for my broken foot is to keep my leg elevated. That’s hard when you have lots of things to do but I’ve been trying!

Sunday afternoon, my brother and his wife came over to my parent’s house to celebrate his birthday. For our birthdays, we get to choose our birthday meal. My brother chose King Taco this time. I ordered a carne asada burrito.

No one else like what they ordered except for me. My brother did like his birthday cake from Baskin Robbins however.

I should be more specific: he liked BOTH of his birthday cakes. You see, Baskin Robbins used to allow you to choose two flavors for your ice cream cakes. He would get his two favorites: Mint Chocolate Chip and Gold Medal Ribbon. Since they don’t allow it anymore and since he is spoiled, my mom gets him TWO cakes. One with Gold Medal Ribbon and the other with Mint Chocolate Chip. Must be nice to be my brother. :)

Yesterday morning’s breakfast was a toasted English muffin with peanut butter.

My foot was feeling pretty good so I ran some errands with my mom including Target and picking up lunch at Corner Bakery. I had the BLT sandwich and a side salad.

Delicious! I had a coupon for a free dessert so we split a fudge brownie.

Also delicious! After lunch I drove the two hours home. I picked the kids up from school, came home to help my son with homework and then went with Lisa for a quick sushi dinner at Koi Sushi.

I had some yellowtail and tuna to start.

I also ordered the Hawaiian Roll.

It was very good!

By the time dinner was over and I put the kids to bed, my foot was KILLING me. I WAY overdid it. I don’t think I put my foot up at all that day. Even my pain pill didn’t cut it. Ugh. I saw every hour on the clock last night. :(

This morning I need some good fuel for breakfast to get me going. I opted for scrambled egg beaters, salsa and shredded cheddar cheese.

I dropped the kids off at school and came back home for Lisa to pick me up for our girls’ spa day! We picked up Starbucks along the way (can you say “extra shot of espresso, please!”?) and made our way over to the Hyatt Mission Bay for their “Spa Week” special.

See! My leg’s up now! 

After our fabulous massages, we relaxed by the pool (leg up) and enjoyed lunch. I ordered a Cobb salad. It was excellent!

Eventually it was time to head home to pick up the kids, get homework done and put my leg back up where it is now. I really need to take it easy but I have a hard time doing that. :)

Are you good at resting when you need it or do you just push through?


  1. When I was younger I'd take any excuse to take it easy - now I just keep thinking of all the things I need/want to do, but I've never broken a bone before - even when I was a 4 season athlete in high school and college!

  2. I am not good at taking it easy. I wish I was, but always think of something I could or should be doing. Try to keep off it as much as you can!

  3. Two cakes?! Lucky guy! (I hope your foot is feeling better!)
