The Next Step (Not Literally)

Besides actually having my ankle heal correctly, one of the things that I have been worrying about is how to stay physically active during this down time. Obviously, all forms of cardio are out of the question (for the time being), but what about other forms of exercise? Is there anything else that I can do during this time that will not only keep me active, but also aid in my recovery and healing?

With this in mind, a package arrived at my house yesterday afternoon from Amazon. Opening it, I saw that it was my friend Esther. In the box was a set of WENFENG Resistance Bands! Knowing how much I love to hike, and how much sitting around was killing me, this gift is beyond being perfect!

I had honestly never thought about different ways to stay active. My mindset has been on hiking, cardio and how to get back to that as quickly as I can. So what have I been doing since last night? That’s right, I have been scouring the web and you tube trying to find appropriate exercises and workouts that I can do while my ankle heals.

So many thanks to Esther for the thoughtful gift that will undoubtedly assist me on the road to recovery and being able to hike again!

I happened to look in the rear view mirror on my way to work this morning and I saw these clouds being bisected by the condensation trail of a jetliner. So of course I had to pull over and take a picture. Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera with me and I had to use my inferior cell phone camera. With that said, the two together with the sun slowly rising made for a beautiful sunrise.

My Quote Of The Day

“When life makes no sense, you must withdraw to the sanctuary within. Only in a state of peace will you see what you must do.”

-Leon Brown

My thought is when you are confronted by life, take a step back and assess the situation. Don’t automatically jump off of the bridge with everyone else. Be the person who makes the conscious and proactive decision to take the time to think before you leap.
