Waiting and Weigh in Results (Jennifer)

Here I am in town at my parents house just waiting for my ankle to heal.  The 5k I signed up for is tomorrow and if you were to ask me if I am able to do it tomorrow I would say no.  But tomorrow is a new day and maybe I will wake up with a better ankle.  One can have hope right?  I am thinking the sprain probably isnt too bad.  It isnt really swollen and not bruised.  I can put weight on it but the turning and twisting is where the pain comes in.  Oh, and walking...it pops when I attempt to walk normal.  I guess it makes sense because when I fell I actually saw what my ankle did.  My inner ankle went up and the outer ankle went under towards the ground  :(   So after a very cranky day yesterday I have come to terms with me most likely being unable to complete the first 5k I was so excited for.  But there will be others and you better believe that I will be signing up at the first feeling of normalcy in my ankle.  But boy did I have myself a little pity party yesterday.  And it was deserved in my opinion.  I have worked so hard to get fit enough to accomplish one, and whats the chances on my final training run I bust my ankle...grrrrr.  Yup, pity party deserved.

My appts yesterday went.  I had a ultrasound lady who wasnt very nice. They never tell you anything anyway so I didnt dare ask see as she was already unpleasant.  So....now its the waiting game.  And I think for a little while I will play the "no news is good news" game. 

Weigh in yesterday:  162.  That is down about a pound from last week.  It isnt the lowest I have seen in my journey but I will take it.  I used to weigh once a week and now do it almost every day.  And it is interesting to see how much my weight can fluctuate day to day.  I am now taking a few days off from the scale while visiting my family and I think that is a good thing too.  It will be interesting to see what no exercise for a few days (ankle) does for me on the scale.  Just another part of the learning curve of my journey :)

Let's look at the positive part of this. Now, with the potential extra training time, maybe you can enter a 10K in the spring? Of course, then you might end up in an entire body cast 2 days before.

Take care of the ankle, there will be more 5k's!
I just discovered our blog and I went back and have read every entry since you started. I can relate in so many ways.
I started Medifast on June 1 and am down 34 pounds. I have also started jogging, something I have NEVER done. I a up to 1 mile, and have done 1 mile for each of the last 5 days. :)
I totally get what you mean about the scale, I have fluctuated 4 pounds in the last 2 days :) Thanks for keeping me on track!

I'm sorry the race doesn't look good for you - I know you had been looking forward to it.
162 is great. As your blog says, it's a journey. Take care of your ankle.
