Happy Friday! I freakin' love Friday. Not sure why, except maybe it's a holdover from working the insurance job full time. Shrug.
Shortly after I posted yesterday, I shifted my weight in my desk chair and BAM. My hip/ITBS/whatever muscle went out. That's the part of my body I (and anyone actually) use when climbing stairs. Especially climbing stairs holding a 40 pound puppy. Or lifting said 40 pound puppy in and out of the SUV. Yes people, I'm not 20 (or even 30 or 40) anymore. I overdid it and sprained/messed up my hip. Badly. As in, iced for 20 minutes on the couch moaning in pain. I could barely walk, never mind climb the stairs or lift up the puppy.
I ended up taking one of my husbands prescription anti-inflammatories and icing. After a nights sleep, it's better, though still not good. But better. What pisses me off is I couldn't hit the gym. First the ankle, then the hip - what am I, 90? Come on. So I skipped the gym, read some, and didn't write a single word on the book. Bad me.
Today, will be different. While I still don't know if the gym will be a good idea, I'll wait and see. But I will write. I will. Starting.... now.
