Happy lunchtime, y’all!!
This post will be a brief one, as I have loads of packing to do for the weekend!! Knocking that checklist down, slowly but surely.
That being said, today’s workout was an early morning one, my favorite kind! I headed over to the gym a little before 7 am for my favorite BodyAttack class at O2 Fitness . The instructor, Javier, is FANTASTIC and always manages to pump me up despite it being over an hour before my average wake-up call. Today, though, did not go as smoothly as usual.
My workout looked like this:
About 15 minutes into the workout, during a little ski jump agility action, I twisted my right ankle. Sort of like this:
Having broken that food in 10th grade (and the other foot 6 years later), I knew not to mess around so the second I twisted it, I fell to the ground, hobbled over to the side, grabbed my stuff, and left.
I finished the workout with some weights, situps/ab work, and even some pushups (hear that Michelle?! I’m trying!!) Here’s proof that I did pushups for once in my life without an instructor demanding them of me:
I was feeling particularly snarky at the gym after twisting my ankle, when I saw the posters that encourage me to join a group fitness class. And I decided that would make a hilarious blog post. So expect it on the horizon, because sometimes… Jordan’s just gotta be rude and
Breakfast was provided by Meghann and Attune Foods from winning on the Healthy Living Summit blog.
The Uncle Sam cereal is delicious, I loveee the flax seeds in it, and it pairs nicely with some blueberries.
Ok, off to pack!!
Ever had a workout related injury?

Never had a workout related injury…I feel pretty lucky! I did fall in the middle of the night and I couldn’t run on my foot for two weeks. I wish I had a cooler story for it though.
Ouch!! Hope your ankle is feeling better.
I’ve had sports related injuries… and the usual aches and pains from running/weights/whatever, but never a real set back injury (knock on wood!)
Pushups! I’m glad you got evidence, but who did you ask to take the photo?
Sorry to hear you twisted your ankle, hope it feels better soon. I have had several ankle injuries do to my klutziness (can’t blame it on working out). I nearly had to cancel my marathon due to a freak trampoline accident the week before. It wasn’t pretty, but I managed to run anyway.
mwahahahaha I’m a sneaky early bird at the gym and took the photo myself with the timer! I vowed that I’ll never (well, at least not right away) force my beau or loved ones to take any REALLY ridiculous photos for the blog (if I’m gonna do it, I should find a way to do it myself).
It’s already feeling better, I iced it earlier and plan to again before I leave work. Gotta be ready for those kitten heels on the dance floor! (jk I never wear shoes.)
Not workout related – but I broke my foot once when I was drunk in college. I didn’t know it until the next day. Ooops.
Hope your food feels better soon!
