The best laid plans

can so quickly go awry. I had all sorts of plans for this weekend. Things are finally getting back to normal at the office, but it's taken me a couple of weeks to get things back on track at home. But, my dvr is finally cleaned out, I'm slowly catching up on blogs and I'm making plans to see friends that I've neglected over the past month or so. So this weekend, I was going to finish catching up with home stuff. Yeah, not so much. :/

I should backtrack for a minute. I'm turing the big 3-0 this summer. With the moving and my dad passing away, I really let the whole healthy eating/working out fall by the wayside, but have decided to really make an effort for the next couple of months so I can look and feel great on the big birthday. I've finally gotten back into a good rhythm at the gym and am LOVING the group classes I've been taking. Both the instructors and the other members are awesome - so much so that it's become part of my daily socializing. :)

Yesterday, I was in step class and managed to accidently step onto the step behind me and rolled my ankle. One minute I was standing, the next I was sitting on the floor. Oops. I tried to pull a mind over matter that it wasn't that big of a deal and finished that class as well as another weights class right afterwards. Felt fine til after I showered. I ran a couple of necessary errands and by the time I got home, I could barely put weight on it and was almost in tears. Yeah, I think it's sprained. :/

I'm so so so pissed! I've been icing it and sucking down Advil like it's candy since yesterday afternoon and it's still swollen and really painful to walk on. I'm toying with the idea of scheduling an appointment with my doctor for some time this week. It's just really crappy timing and I'm already mouring not being able to hit the gym this week. Blah!

As for those plans to do a bunch of stuff around the house? Um, I'm laying on the couch with my leg elevated, playing on the computer. Not the worst way to spend a Sunday, but also not what I was hoping for.

Hope you're feeling better soon! My newly regained workout mojo also got waylaid this week with an injury, so I feel your frustration.

I can bring my ACE braces to class if you are still in pain then. They really helped me a lot after I fell off a curb in San Francisco. :s

You probably did sprain it. I don't know how quickly you'll be able to get back into your gym routine, but hopefully it will at least feel better to walk on in the next day or two. H+P!
