1) Dancing Girl and I
wasted spent some time last night giggling at many things on Pinterest. I’ll share a few of our favorites throughout this post today. (edited to add: I was going to share more, but then Pinterest pooped out)
2) Big doctor appointment today. My ankle feels pretty good. There are moments when I feel a little pinch. I’m really wondering if there is a pinched nerve? Or is it still the inflamed tendon that I think it is. The GP from last week prescribed Naproxen for me, but I was only able to take it for a few days. It destroyed my stomach. Major cramps and stomach pain. I had to start taking Zantac to fix the problem and decided I should probably stop taking the Naproxen. I went back to the Aleve and still am taking the Zantac as my stomach still hurts.
3) I went to my favorite Sunday morning Yoga class this weekend. I made me giggle in the first few minutes listening to the creaks and cracks of everyone’s joints warming up. It was like a little musical orchestra warm up.
4) We had that same Yoga substitute from a few weeks ago. I still didn’t enjoy the class as much as I do with the regular teacher, I stuck it out. And, it was a good enough workout to make it so that I was pretty sore the next day. I modified a few poses to not put too much stress on my ankle (it didn’t hurt, I was just being careful). Each Yoga session reminds me that my hips are tight and weak. I wonder if that’s related to the ankle pain?
5) A few days ago I received some exciting news. I was accepted as a FitFluential Ambassador. See that little pink logo on my sidebar? “FitFluential is a growing family of fitness fanatics spreading a positive healthy message year-round. FitFluential is Fitness Found.” from the Fitfluential Website. The amazing people over at Fitfluential think that I am one of those people that I fit the bill of being “the best person to motivate everyone around you to eat well and get their fit on”.
