Alright, so I was doing so well into September...and then I fell down a set of steps at work.
Even though it felt like I rebroke my ankle, I didn’t. It swelled up to the size of a grapefruit and everyone said it was just a sprain. (Except my sister, she said t might be a ligament or tendon issue). 4 weeks later I saw my doctor (they almost made me wait 6 weeks until I gave it back to them on the phone). She suggested physio and I suggested an ultrasound. Thankfully I pushed for my own health (with a push from my fiancé), because I just got the ultrasound test result and now I’m getting an MRI at some point.
So here I am, with a tear in my tendon of my left ankle. Having not moved my body for 2 months, my depression slowly crept back in with a loner bounce back time, I gained over 15 pounds since the injury, and my muscles are completely lost.
It feels that every time I get somewhere in my movement journey, something happens and it pushes me back. But each time I get back into it slowly. This past week I started on cutting out the foods that showed up high on my sensitivity test, and today I begin moving through yoga & @chalenejohnson’s @piyoworkout.
This program is what gets my muscles firing and my body stretching when “it’s been a while”. If it’s been a while for you to, hit me up and let’s stretch & strengthen together.
