I sprained my ankle this morning. Yep. Sure did. While I was walking down the stairs leaving to go grocery shopping Grace said something to me and I attempted to turn around. When I did I twisted on my ankle/foot and sort of fell onto it's outer side, rolling it under itself. OUCH! I didn't know it could move that way and not break! Needless to say the grocery shopping trip never happened and RICE quickly ensued ... you know, rest, ice, compression, elevation. Oh, and a nap. That was nice :)
Fortunately, it doesn't seem to be bad. Just a tiny bit of swelling and some pain that I can endure. I've stayed off of it for most of today (minus taking Grace to swimming lessons and picking up Lydia from school ... oh, and going potty). Brandon has been an angel (he always is when I am sick or somehow incapacitated). Things could be a lot worse and I am aware of that!
But I must confess that I am mad!! I just want to rewind the day and start over and make this not happen! I'm sure I will not be able to run for a week or so. Grrr! I finished Couch to 5K 2 weeks ago and am now at the point where I can run 30 minutes 5 days a week. And it seems I am at a plateau in my weight loss too. This set back isn't going to help me out any! Grrrrr!
But it could be worse. I keep telling myself that. In a year I will have forgotten this ever happened. But for now it's poor me .. boo hoo hoo!
