Blog Update

I know it's been awhile since my last post, my epic 2014. I recently had the dreaded foot surgery to remove ALL of my bunion (the previous surgery didn't get it all) on February 9, 2015. I'm now on crutches, but moving around easier each day. I'm really thankful that I can walk on it after a week. I'm also doing 30 crunches a day to help out the body just a bit and well and crutching around is a fantastic workout for the arms.

The Giant has been my savior helping me out and taking care of EVERYTHING. So, I want to just say thanks to him. And thanks to everyone sending me the well wishes.

I now have lots and lots of pins.
January was spent doing things before I lost the use of my foot for a couple of months, but nothing really to write about. I ran a few times (and even hit six miles). The cool part was seeing that I was consistently runner faster. I biked once with the Giant when he got back, but it was a very windy day and he had a nasty fall. So, a 14 mile bike ride ended up being more like 5 miles, which was a good thing since we had tickets to Book of Mormon (hilarious). I also went to the gym pretty regularly and I even got back into yoga again.

Now, I'm down and out for at least a month. I believe I can start swimming in March and biking in April if doctor approves. I'm told that I will be able to resume running in May. Marathon training will start in June (crossing fingers).

Since I'm not doing too much, I have been reading the Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert and I absolutely 100% love it. Although, now that I'm back at work, the reading has taken a nose dive.

But to be honest, I have been wrestling with continuing this blog. I started to see my picture from the plank post everywhere on the Internet and it kind of freaked me out. Also, I wasn't sure many people were really even reading it. Then, I had people tell me they miss my posts. I'm not totally done with this blog, but I won't be writing about much for the next month at least!

I hope you have a great weekend!


  1. Glad that your foot is getting better! Hopefully everything heals smoothly and quickly for you! And seeing my pictures circulating the Internet would freak me out, too. That's one of the things that I've been nervous about with blogging, so I totally understand if you do step back a bit.

    1. Thanks Allison! And thanks for understanding. I'm still undecided. Every week, it's a new emotion on whether to stop or keep going.

  2. Hey Kristi!

    I commented on this post a couple weeks ago, and oops...where'd it go! A while ago I got on, worried that I wasn't getting your notifications... and saw you last post. Please don't stop blogging! I do understand the weirdness of finding your pictures elsewhere... But it was thru blogs that we found each other with all our silly stuff in common. Hope you're healing and back to normal soon. Let's get together when you're game!

  3. Awww thanks Beth. Yes, every week, I have a new decision about it. I just can't make up my mind. Typical. And yes, this is how we met.

    I'm doing a lot better and even driving. So, if you want to get together soon, let's arrange something. I miss you.


Thank you for your comments. I will respond shortly.
