In which my ankles hurt


Both of my feet/ankles have been hurting me for the last few days and I could NOT figure out why.  At first I thought it was because I performed Happy by Pharrell along side him for the Oscars.
Well, perhaps NOT along side him but I did perform it for Andie and Kevin in my living room while he was performing it on the TV.  Andie, of course, recorded it and sent it to Keely who just HAD to Instagram it but that’s all beside the point. The point is that yesterday my feet were hurting and I couldn’t figure out why.


Then today I went to Pilates and told the instructor that I had feet and ankle problems (which is in itself a problem since this was a Barre class and you had to stand the whole time.)


I told her that it was because Pharrell and I were performing which required an explanation to the entire class. BUT … then I realized that it was most likely because on Saturday I went and did the elliptical with Andie for over an hour.


I didn’t really think of that at the time because you know, it’s just exercise but I realize now that you’re moving your ankles the entire time and I bet I’m not used to it.


So I think it’s time to hang it up; for me at least. After all, if you’re feet and ankles hurt from just working out then perhaps the workout is doing more harm then good. It’s not like I’m losing any weight (perhaps my food intake is responsible) and now my knees and my ankles hurt.




So perhaps Pharrell and Happy are not to blame which is good because I really enjoy dancing to that song.  But ya know what? I got out of breath! Seriously, just dancing to that song made me out of breath, which also makes me question my fitness routine.


All this Pilates and Spinning and I hurt myself on an Elliptical and I’m exhausted just dancing.  How do people stay alive so long?


I’m actually not all that interested in find out because I don’t want to be really old but at the alarming rate I’m falling apart I’ll be lucky to make 60.


In other news I did see two tigers today.  Bet you’re curious about that one huh??? I’ll tell you another time. I’m totally bored with myself and actually have some shit to do today.

    Based on your exercise schedule there is NO WAY you are out of shape. Stick with blaming Pharrell ~ damn kids!

    2 Februaries ago.. I fractured my ankle when I rolled it while walking. It was bad, because I thought it was a sprain and didn’t go to a doctor until it was too late to fix it much, just wore a brace. The following february, I fractured it AGAIN while on a stationary bike! That happened 1 week before I had to start a new job working in a library on my feet all day. When I say that I feel your pain, trust me, I do. It still hurts since I still work standing at all times. Ouch.

      That actually sounds terrible. I’m just whining. That’s as real
