No Really…I Suck at This
Posted November 14, 2019 by Prairie Wife - 2 comments
It has been a whirlwind of activity around here.
From Emceeing events to traveling around the state to talk about leading a life of grit and grace it has been a full few weeks.
You may remember me posting a month ago about a sprained ankle, and how I was trying to take it slow.
Well, I really suck at taking it slow.
Which I already knew, and I’ve been working on it…really.
Earlier this week I knew it was time to head to a professional.
Despite only wearing high heels when I “had” to and keeping working out to once a week, and shorter distances my ankle has still been swollen and painful to the touch.
It looks like I need to take it even easier, and meet with a Physical Therapist at least twice a week. He says that I should (maybe) be up and going in 4 – 6 weeks. IF I follow orders and everything goes as planned.
Double Boo Hiss.
I can already feel myself becoming short-tempered and snippy after only a few weeks of no working out. My inner voice is getting edgy and my inclination to shove my face in my phone instead of deal with life is growing each day.
I’ve dealt with it before when I had my mastectomy, but oh how I hate it.
Everything just seems so much harder to deal with when I can’t hit the mountains and hike my way through it.
I know, I’m complaining and whining.
But, what can I say, I’m human too…and this has me feeling down and discouraged.
This time will fly, especially right now as we approach the crazy holiday season.
And as GuruJoe said in yesterday’s session, maybe I can use this time to do some more work on the inner me, while the outer me heals.
Touche Joe 😉 and 100% correct.
After all, my word for 2019 was “pause” so it looks like I’m being forced to delve even deeper into it as the year draws to a close…and I don’t think that’s a bad thing.
