I've also had time to catch up with myself. I miss me. I miss feeling like I'm in the best shape of my life and feeling great in my clothes. It's crazy how a few months out of the gym can completely change your perspective.
Fingers crossed I'll be able to get back to work on Tuesday (as of now I'm working from home) so I can attend my Weight Watchers at work meeting.
I missed the first meeting of the 12 week session because of my ankle injury and I really don't want to miss anymore. Since I'm out of the running and cross training game indefinitely I really have to stick to WW if I hope to get back to my before I stopped going to the gym and started going to school and then decided to eat all the food weight.
As for my ankle, I really don't know what's up with it. It still hurts a good bit. The swelling has gone down considerable but it's still really swollen. You can't really see my ankle bone. The bruising has started to really set in and goes up my leg a bit. Last night I realized my toes are tingly, sort of like when your foot falls asleep. If I'm up for any period of time (like to shower while standing on one foot) it begins to swell even more. I've never had a sprained ankle like this. If I don't hear from the orthopedic doctor about my walking boot by tomorrow afternoon I'm going to call the office to let them know about the continued swelling and tingly toes. I have no idea if that's normal for the severity of my injury and I'm not going to consult Dr. Google.
All in all, I'd really just like to put on my trusty Newtons and hit the pavement or even the treadmill. For now, I'll just keep counting "walking with crutches" as my daily workout. Yes, walking with crutches is something that you can earn AP with. I'm totes counting that because trust me, it's a workout.
