FRIDAY SURF

This week has been a drug-induced doozy.

If you’ve seen me within this past year, you may have noticed this growing bump on my foot. I had been getting more involved with doing high intensity circuit workouts and was not taking rest days between them. Result? A stress fracture and  a multi-lobed ganglion cyst. It’s nothing malignant! Still it was causing me a lot of pain when I wore shoes and has been preventing me from doing anything too active. I was hoping it would just… go away. A “time heals all things” attitude! Unfortunately, it didn’t apply here. I bit the bullet this past Tuesday and got a surgery for it to be excised.

I’ll be honest, this was my first surgery so I was anxious. Then the anesthesiologist gave me “a little cocktail” via IV and… I was back in the recovery room. HAHA. I don’t remember a single thing and I LOVE THAT. Drugs are an amazing invention.

Although the surgery wasn’t extremely invasive, I still need to be off my foot to heal. I’m slowly getting stir crazy SO I’m heading to Fire Island today! The plan is to lie out in the sun, read and enjoy the weather.

So lesson for today is resting is as important as working! Have a lovely weekend!

Here’s my week on the Internet:

Kanye West is Tracy Jordan.

The inspiring Elizabeth Smart.

Let’s learn from each other’s mistakes.

Boxer braids are in the books for next week.

I’ve been hearing good things about this blush.

Apparently I need to check out the Whole Foods in Williamsburg.

Have you ever heard of a hummingbird cake? On the to bake list.

If you’ve got the love and resources, it’s never too late to start a family.

I’m a forward planner this year and I’ve got my eye on this necklace for my niece’s birthday.

I watched Spotlight this week and it was…terrifying. Here’s a good article on the story the movie is based on. Sum up? Question authority. Value, respect and support investigative journalism.

On that note, this is a very long- but intriguing- read about life inside a private prison.
