Welcome To The Real World

So, last week was tough.  I couldn't exercise because of this darn ankle pain.  I tried to rest it like the doc told me to, but I just knew I needed to be doing some sort of movement.  For some reason I equated rest with eating and made some horrible choices.  I snacked on stuff that I shouldn't have and I ate when I wasn't hungry.  I know better!  I knew it was wrong!!!  With that being said, I knew that when I went to weigh in last night, it wouldn't be good.  And, yep, I was right.  I went up 1.2lbs......oops!!!!  Welcome to the real world.  I have to get back on track. I cannot and will not let this slip up derail me from my journey.  I have already been to the gym twice this week.  And let me tell you, my ankle has been PAINFUL....ugh!!!!!  I struggled through though.  I guess if there is a positive to this, it is that my ankle doesn't hurt when I am actually working out.  I can make it through the workouts.  It hurts when I am done and continues to hurt throughout the day when I move around.  I'm thinking that maybe I should switch to swimming for my activity until I can get this thing under control.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  I don't want the pain to discourage me from working out.  Until next time, stay strong and eat healthy.


  1. Have you seen a doctor about the ankle? I'm new to your blog so not sure what the back story is. I think swimming is a great idea!

  2. Yes, I went to the doc and he said it looks like some tendonitis is setting in and it doesn't help that I have flat feet. So I should be wearing some orthotics.
