10 Things My Dad Can Do With One Arm

My dad is a bad-ass juggler.


My dad is a bad-ass mountain biker.


My dad is a bad-ass MacGyver look alike.




Even with his arm in a sling, my dad is still pretty bad-ass. He wrecked on his road bike coming down a mountain about a month ago. Dad had road rash, cuts, bumps, and needed surgery to fix his broken collar bone. Now he has a metal plate in his shoulder so he is not only bad-ass, but a bionic bad-ass.

Dad can't mountain bike yet, but there are still lots of things he can do with one arm!





Yo Yo


Jacks


Thumb wrestle


Crack open a beer (jk!)


Spin a b-ball


Juggle two balls


Cut a deck of cards


Ride an antique exercise bike


Cheer on his friend at a time trial


Read to his granddaughter, Ellie

As you can see, it is important to stay active, busy, and positive during an injury that prevents you from doing something you love! My dad has a very positive outlook, so I know he is going to come back STRONGER THAN EVER! 


Now we know where I get my positive outlook and determination from...

Love you, Daddio! YOU GOT THIS!
Have you ever broken a bone?
What do you do to stay positive when you are injured?

  1. Your dad is awesome and how blessed are you to be his daughter! You definitely got his determination.

    Broke bones = stress fractures in my foot and in my tibia.

    To stay positive when I am injured I focus on what I can do not what I can't. I try to see it as an opportunity to do things that I don't normally do. I also count down the days until I am back to being healthy.

    1. That is a very positive way of looking at being injured! I know a lot of people who started weight lifting due to an injury and they are so glad they started!

  4. Your dad is sooooo cool!

    I have luckily NEVER broken a bone! I am such a baby when it comes to medical stuff that it's a *really* good thing I've never broken anything or had to have surgery. I would be insufferable to those around me! :)

  5. Hope dad heals up soon! He seems like a very fun person :) Kudos to you for not giving up when you were hurting. I haven't broken anything other than toes or fingers, but I've had a few surgeries and I stayed positive by being ecstatically happy no could make me go to work because the doctor said so lol

    1. Having days off work is seriously the best part about having surgery or breaking something. Oh you made me laugh!
