I'm Not Counting It!

 I'm a little bit sad because yesterday, for the first time in a long long time (maybe years?) I didn't get my "minimum" exercise in.  I PURPOSELY didn't. 

See, I went for a walk on Saturday and then on Sunday my left ankle was weird.  Like, hurt to walk on OUCH but not all the time.  And then again on Monday, I woke up and it was OUCH to walk on (and then got better) and then same Tuesday OUCH what?  Yesterday I had an acupuncture appointment which can I just say is the best thing to bring my anxiety down and I feel like it's saving my life, not exaggerating, but anyway, when I was in this appointment I mentioned to her that my left ankle had "gone rogue" and she asked some questions and looked at it and said the achilles tendon looked a bit swollen.  She did some things and some stuff and then gave me some wraps to put on it and she suggested I rest it for a couple of days so, no walking? I said?  She said yeah, that would be best.  So, I didn't.

I mean, obviously I did, I didn't go on bed rest or anything, but I also didn't do my "bare minimum" exercise which I've been doing no matter what for ages.  I'm sad about it because I like my wins and I like knowing I did something, but in this case I'm trying to avoid an ongoing injury and so I'm not going to think about it other than this post.

But yeah, I'm not going to count it as a fail because it was a purposeful, healthy choice to stave off what could become an issue.  But I'm still a little bummed.

My brain is weird, I know.  Trust me, I know.

But good for you for making the choice to at least take it easy.

"Yay boo"

I don't know why, but that just made me laugh so hard. It's like the perfect response to nearly everything this year.
