Since I sprained my left ankle two weeks ago (just over), I have been completely inactive. My workout routine usually consists of yoga, spinning, hiking, and then light weight lifting; but ever since the ankle went-I haven’t been able to do much of anything. That’s how bad the injury was, and I didn’t even break it.
In 8 years of playing football, I got one concussion, and that was it. I can honestly say that this was the most painful injury I’ve ever had, and the worst part about it was not being able to workout. My goal for this upcoming year is to get into really good shape. Since I work out often, it shouldn’t be a huge problem, but I also love to eat.
This boy loves his cheeseburgers, pizza, cookies, ice cream, and Moon Pies. I give you guys full permission to check me into some kind of Food Rehab, because I have eaten at least one moon pie everyday for the last 15 days as a “treat” to myself for hurting my ankle. I realize that’s absurd, but I’m a fattie and I love food and I don’t care.
The only thing is-if I’m serious about achieving my body goals-I can’t eat like that. Scientifically, it’s just not possible. My genetics don’t allow me to eat whatever I want and not gain a pound (anymore-it stopped being that way after 25). Since I’m not one to sit at home, I thought I would treat myself to a hike in Runyon Canyon with Gia yesterday.
Hiking up the mountain-I could feel the pain in my ankle agian, but what’s that expression? Oh yeah-“NO PAIN, NO FAME”-so I kept trudging along-up the mountain so I could get my ankle used to harder inclines and stuff again. Tomorrow-I’m going to go to yoga for the first time in two weeks, and I wanted to see if I could do an Ardha Chandrasana (Half Moon Pose).
That’s me up there-en route to completing my half moon pose without any issues (on my right foot). I tried it on my left foot, and I could basically do it. Since yoga is a new passion of mine, I am not going to let my body dictate what I cannot do. I shall dictate to my body what I am going to do, and my body is just going to have to buck up, put the pain aside, and deal with it!
Additionally, my body seriously needs to get a clue if it thinks I’m going to be squeezing into some tight, black, Parke and Ronen mini swim trunks in the next three months without the help of yoga. Like get a clue, Body.
