Twisted Ankle :(
This is what I wore yesterday to run some errands. I love this little Calvin Klein dress because it so comfortable I forget I have it on. It's easy to wear and I'm not pulling or pinching or shifting it around; it's just so easy to wear. I've been wearing a lot of black and white this summer and stripes. I have quite a bit of color in my wardrobe, but you wouldn't know it by looking at my posts. It's just the color palette I gravitate to. I did add a punch of color with the orange scarf, but it was so hot that was removed after about 3 minutes. I'm wearing my trusty flat snake print sandals.
I am not a 'sitter'. I am always on the go, always moving and doing things. I like to fill my days and nights with purpose no matter how great or small. I like to accomplish things; I like to check things off of my to-do list. Last night, I was flitting about the house, tidying up after everyone and twisted my ankle on the stairs. Yikes, it hurt.
I did the RICE treatment (Rest, Ice,Compression, Elevation) before I went to bed and thought it would be fine by this morning. Not so. Still hurts. I am a former paramedic and so I called on my skills to examine and evaluate...no signs of a fracture, thankfully...but a good sprain for sure.
I have some dance events scheduled for later in the week so today I am going to fight my busy nature and SIT, rest and try to let my body take its natural healing course. Not going to be easy, but I will just keep my eye on the prize of dancing on the weekend, practicing for my September competition.
Can I just sit and relax for one whole day?
I guess we will see.
