Just when I'm in a groove and feeling good about my workout plan, my ankle starts screaming at me.

I haven't been for a run since last Thursday and that run really turned into a walk. I'm not sure if it's been running on pavement? Or maybe it was just too much in just a few days? I have no idea really, but something has happened. I can actually feel the pins in my foot. I think. There is definitely feel something. Like a catch. And then there is shooting pain. No bueno.

So I've taken four days off from exercise (instantly saw a drop in my energy level!) though I did take a very long walk in the tulip fields on Saturday. Probably not the smartest thing but it was too pretty not to go!!

So I'm waiting two more days, no physical activity on the foot. I'll use the medicine ball and do some other things to keep moving and see how it goes. If I'm still in pain then I'll be calling the orthopedist. Grrr. I'm afraid to even think about what might be wrong with it. I am choosing to believe that it just wanted a break.

This has put a kink in my weight loss plans but I'm just going to get really diligent about what I'm putting in my mouth. Better eating, better body, better vacation photos! :)


Here are some photos from my Saturday adventure. LeeAnn, Amaya and I had a great time. I think it will become a yearly tradition!

Oodles and oodles of tulips!

My new favorite tulips, they are called Angelique. I will be buying some and planting them for next year.

Wait, maybe these are my new favorite...

Oh but I LOVE these...

I think it's safe to say I have a tulip problem. I picked out over $100 worth of bulbs I MUST purchase. But then I'd have to plant $100 worth of bulbs. It might be worth it though, just look at how fun that field is!!
