I’m skipping the weigh in this week because of my accident. I’m still not able to stand and put weight on my right foot, which means any result from the scale will be suspect. That doesn’t mean I’ve given up on weight loss, just that I’m postponing the measuring of it.

As for how I’m doing, I’m still using crutches and finding them a drag. However, the bruising and pain are reduced from Sunday, and I expect I will be off crutches and using a cane by the end of the week. I took a day off from work, and resume today. As motivation I’ve scheduled an “away” hike in central Pennsylvania three weeks from now, and like my Route 501 trip its to a place I’ve never been.

One additional problem with my accident is that the bike fitting I wanted to schedule for this week is pushed back. Depending on how I feel, and the weather, next week I’ll be taking the bike to the shop and working with them to make adjustments to stop my hands going numb. Hiking has always been my first love, but cycling is what got me active and outside, and I miss that part of my life. It will be good to be on the bike again.
