Some Healing Progress... Finally!

Today was the first day since getting the concussion (last Saturday so today was day 8 of healing) that I don't feel in danger of throwing up! I'm considering this great progress. I'm also less foggy although I'm still forgetting what I was saying and have to pause in the middle of talking to try to remember the correct word that I need or just ask someone for the name I'm looking for.

I'm not sure when I can work out again (hopefully soon) but I'll definitely be starting slow. I actually have three or four separate plans ready to go at the gym starting with the most basic with is upper body one day and lower the next just on the machines plus planks, abs and cardio (cardio may take a little longer to happen than the machines).

After that I'll move on to the days where it's split into push/pull/legs and abs and where I use machines, free weights and cables/bands. And there's like 3 versions of that one I can build up to so I have a lot of plans that I'll be happy doing, I'm just not sure when I can start.

Gabriel will also be starting school on Thursday (Junior year!!) so tomorrow we're making a trip to Wal-Mart (ye-ha lol) to get him some clothes and some other things. I should be okay with the drive by now but, of course, it will depend on how I feel when I wake up and throughout the day.

I guess I'm finally beginning to heal but it's really strange to me how long it's taking. And so far my back has been completely okay which is a little foreign to me but I'll take it!

I'm also doing much better with food this week! I made a new recipe today that I absolutely LOVED (low carb flat bread crust pizza), made more keto muffins and have only had my ice cream on Thursday as I said I would. I'm also making sure to only have one small piece of chocolate if I can fit it into my macros and I've cut way back on the junky low carb food.

So, things are starting to look up! Let's hope they continue this way!
