Self confessed zumba and kettlebells addict, & walk to work most days. I do the odd bike ride with my other half but usually only if there's a pub involved! I'm trying to tackle depression with the help of exercise and good nutrition. It's tough, but I'll get there.

Kirstie M We tried to bbq carrot wedges. They we're nice, but could have done with a bit more time I think.
Kirstie M Yesterdays supper: vegetable tagine made with tomatoes, squash, green beans, chickpeas and spices served with lemon pepper whole grain cous cous and home made apricot chutney. Yum.
Kirstie M this is something we do as a matter of course. I usually double up for things like chilli, bolognese, stews and the like, especially when twinned with our slow cooker. I've just laid down a couple of pots of roasted tomato sauce.
Kirstie M I'm struggling a bit today. I'm in pain and am seriously considering taking some codine, despite the side effects. It feels like I'm going backwards if i do though. I should probably go and get some fresh air, but I'm not sure if the struggle to get my shoes on is worth the effort =(
Eunice Y encouraged this.
Kirstie M After fracture clinic last week it turned out that what seemed to be a simple crack of the radial head was more complicated, resulting in minimalised rotation and reduced liniar movement. I had a CT scan which showed that the break had displaced within the elbow joint. On Friday I was operated on and now have 2 titanium screws holding things together. After quite a lot of drugs I eventually was sent home in plaster which has to stay on for a fortnight. After talking to the physio about exercise I'm really limited to what i should and shouldnt do (my balance - or lack thereof - leaves squats and lunges off the list, and cardio is banned until the plaster comes off). Once the plaster is removed there will be physio, and a good 3 months before I'm healed. I'm struggling a bit to keep positive. I have to choose between pain relief and the side effects from the drugs, and I can't even get dressed in the morning without help. My o/h is wonderful, and has even made me a stand for a Bradford sling for the front room, but I miss independence!
