Workout Pause

This week has flown by so far. I spent a wonderful and busy weekend celebrating Joe's 30th birthday and spending time with my mom shopping the Junior League Shopping Spree. Unfortunately, my ankle did not appreciate all the activity that came with the festivities. My lower leg was swollen and sore. I have been in and out of doctors this week trying to figure out why my ankle is not healing correctly. For now the diagnosis is a pulled tendon and sprained ankle. The prescription- a boot, rest and ice. This thing is bulky and cumbersome. Start physical therapy Friday and hope to get an estimate on how long it will take to heal.

Believe me this is extremely frustrating. I am not the type to rest. However, I know that if I continue to push myself I may just injure it more. Hoping for more insight Friday. Since this thing really prevents any strenuous cardio activity my game plan is to focus on nutrition (still a huge weakness) and work on strengthening my upper body. Kelly Ripa arms here I come!

Also, if anyone has any fashion tips on how to style this thing I would greatly appreciate it. :)

  2. Aw, I know how it feels to wear a boot...hang in there! Make sure you stay as active as you can and be aggressive with your physical therapy for a speedier recovery! I had an ugly gray boot that I just had to bear with... #wowlinkup

  11. oh boy I have nothing for you in regards to the boot but work on those arms......get stronger and build that upper body. Also if that stays swollen you may want 2 get another opinion from another doctor. Want to make sure it isn't more serious than a strain. #wowlinkup

  13. I'm so sorry for your injury. I hate being forced to rest because of injuries...I would also say to work on arms and abs while waiting for you leg to heal. You will be stronger once you can return to normal activities :) #wowlinkup
