Sprained ankle...

Saturday, April 13, 2013

Ugh! I've been dreading this! On Tuesday night I was at Zumba burning some major calories and what happens? I land on the side of my foot and collapse with a badly sprained ankle. I've been doing so well going to the gym and exercising 4-5 times a week and now I've been told to stay off it for a week. I really hope this doesn't turn into a major setback for me.

Luckily, the swelling has gone down greatly. I'm able to walk now without crutches... yippee! I'm gonna give my ankle the rest of the weekend to rest and then try to ease back into the gym on Monday. Anyone have suggestions on things to do that won't put too much stress on it? I was thinking the elliptical shouldn't be too bad. I'll definitely avoid the treadmill for a while! It hurts just thinking about it! Thank you in advance for your suggestions!

On a happier note, tomorrow is my 1 year anniversary with my awesome husband! I'm so glad we got married last year, when it actually felt like Spring in April! Hehe! It's been a crazy year of ups and downs, but through it all, I love him more than ever! Happy Anniversary babe! Below is my favorite pic from our day!

Happy Weekend Everyone!

    Happy Anniversary, too! I love the pic as well...
So sorry to hear about your ankle... I just found out that I'm going in to surgery soon and I'll be out of commission for a while. I'm also very nervous about what that'll do to my exercise regime as I've been walking 5-6 days a week for the last year plus! I will be looking into all sorts of other exercises that I can do in the meantime and see what I can do to still burn those calories. If I figure something out, I'll let you know! Please do the same! :-)

  You will be fine. Just eat as you have been eating and do chair exercises. They are good calorie burners.

    So sorry to hear that you sprained your ankle. It's important to follow the Doctor's orders and don't overdue it even when it feels better. It will probably be weak for awhile and you don't want to do further damage! Take it easy!

Congratulations on your anniversary! My husband and I will be celebrating our 2nd this June. I love your picture! Glad that you are happy! emoticon

Take care!
