I have been sidelined by injury.
Yesterday morning, after shoveling snow in the morning and maybe even after my snowy run on Sunday, I was walking around my office at work and I got a sharp, stabbing pain in my right ankle. I couldn't walk on it for about a half hour, then it just went away. What?!?
Dr. Google thinks it might be a tendon issue. Since it went away so quickly I have hopes it is a tendon issue that can resolved with rest, rest, and more rest.
That's what I will do.
I had quad issues last year in the spring and after the hilly, snowy run on Sunday my quad was a bit more tender than the norm. Between the quad and the ankle my body is telling me to slow the eff down. I will listen to you, Body.
I am taking the week off of running. I might walk, depending on how it feels, but if I get any wonkiness at all, I won't walk either. I mean, walk any extra, obviously, I will still do my normal moving around walking.
I think I might look up some pilates videos or some low impact workouts. I know Fitness Blender has some of those so I will look up videos and maybe do some of that tonight. The idea of not working out for the week has me somewhat stressed.
The good news is I had an excellent eating day yesterday!
Dinner was great, the Tuscan bean soup, was delicious. Hubs even had seconds! And for dessert I had Shredded Wheat with a Truvia packet for sweetness. It was pretty good. I'm actually not a fan of sugary cereals. We never had them growing up, so I am used to Shredded Wheat and Cheerios and Grape Nuts. Note to self: check Grape Nuts for added sugar next time I am at the store.
I have been using MFP to track my food. My only concern is I feel like I am eating a TON of food. I'm within my calorie limits, but it just seems like so much more than I am used to, which has me worried on the weight gain side of things. We will see next Monday.
