Ok, so most of you know my story...last Wednesday I was riding home on my scooter (50cc yamaha) and was in the left lane when a car started coming across from the right lane. I breaked and beeped and he went straight back into his lane. Then, he just decided to come over again...I breaked but couldn't stop quick enough, he hit me and I obviously came off.
I hit the road and my bike came on top of me. All the cars around me stopped and someone pulled the bike off me. Luckily there was an ambulance about 5 cars back so they came and took me away to hospital.
Its a good thing I wear a proper motorbike helmet and not one of those half head ones a lot of people on scooters wear. My helmet was totalled...
They thought I'd broken my ankle and / or my foot but xrays have cleared that but I've done some ligament damage so I'm on crutches. Also, the way I fell, the handle bars went right into my abdomen so I'm very bruised there - thats all ok too. I'm just scraped and bruised EVERYWHERE! My legs, arms, hip, pelvis and my right foot - which is so sore it might as well be broken!!
Anyway - sorry to rehash that to everyone who already knows....but here is my question...
I weighed myself this morning and I'm down to 70.5kgs. I said something to my partner since I've been eating [email protected]
and obviously can't exercise and he said I'd be losing muscle.
How do I get the muscle back, but keep my weight heading south?? I'm scared to get back to the gym and see my numbers go back up...?
Any advice would be fantastic!! Thanks guys
All in all, I'm VERY sore - funny enough feel like I've been hit by a car - but very, VERY lucky. I could've very easily have broken something - including my neck. The police told me I came off the right way because if I'd tried to veer to the left to avoid the car, I would've ended up being run over by the car in the lane turning left...
The driver has accepted full responsibility and the police are happy with all reports (they came to visit me in hospital!) so now it's just recovery time....think I'll be missing the gym for a while...?!?!?!?
