At work today - pain is down but still puffy so I need to stay on top of the ibuprofen.

Going to have two work trips in the next two weeks now. The good news is that for the one next week, I'll get to fly on the company plane (private). The bad news is my dog sitter is now charging $45/night... she started at $30/night and it just feels a bit too much. I'm willing to pay a fair rate, but $40 was about my limit, based on what others are charging and what it would cost to kennel. I want to use her through my Paris trip since I've already booked her for that (when her rate was $37/night). I don't have time to start over with a new sitter until March, but need to find someone who won't raise their prices every month.

Update: I got out of going on the 2nd work trip, horray! And the trip next week is only one night instead of two like I originally thought. They re-scheduled one of the events so our COO could attend and fly back on the same night. The plane is wheels up at 7 a.m. Tuesday which is stupid early for me (considering an hour Uber ride and arriving early), but at least it's private. And we come home Wednesday evening.

Exercising patience as I wait for my ankle to heal. Definitely feeling better and swelling is going down. Work is keeping me busy with a series of meetings starting next week for one of the functions I support. But I don't love being sidelined. 

Also YES watching The Bachelor. I can't help it! I'm still salty over Mike not being chosen. But Peter is cute. And Hannah needs to move along. No early favorites, but I did appreciate the woman who wore a PANT SUIT and HIGH PONYTAIL on the first night - I'm sure that took a lot to buck the trend of a boob-tastic gown and beach-waved hair - she looked fantastic.

Swelling is down this morning but still puffy and starting to bruise. I drove up to work and had Christina run my laptop down so I can work from home for a few days. I think I can probably go in on Wednesday.

Spent 2.5 hours at urgent care this afternoon. So many sick people, I did not touch a thing, not even the sign in pen (used my own). Finally got looked at and the doctor was concerned with how much swelling there was, didn’t think it was broken but ordered X-rays to make sure. This is the same leg and just a few inches from my IM LOU leg break so I was glad to have confirmation. No broken bones. Bad sprain.

I’ve seen this doc before and I like her - she’s very liberal with meds. I told her I’d taken a 2015 era Percocet last night (I’d saved them!) and she called in a fresh batch of those plus a huge batch of 800 mg ibuprofen. I need to RICE until swelling goes down and she recommended staying home from work for a few days. Walking/running as soon as all pain is gone. Probably 2 weeks before I can run.

Tallahassee half marathon up in the air at this point. I’m just so thankful it’s not broken. I was having vivid flashbacks of after I broke my leg - similar pain just a bit less - and didn’t want to think about what a break would mean for the rest of this year.

Oh no. I slid on a pine cone and twisted my foot and ankle so bad. Limped home and saw it’s crazy swollen. Can’t believe I was going to try and keep going.
Put a compression sock on and am icing it. It’s kinda bad!

Shana came in today solely to teach this spin class, haha! Tracked my heart rate on my Garmin on the "indoor bike" mode and it automatically uploaded here and on Strava - cool. Pushed a little harder than normal today.

Sport

Extra steps on the treadmill at an incline. I'm experimenting with wearing my new Garmin all the time because it tracks my steps - and I was really motivated when I wore a Fitbit for the same thing to move more. I intentionally got the "pretty" Garmin (white and rose gold) so I would do this.

Despite horrendous sleep last night, I'm feeling great today. Down a teeny bit on the scale, and my lunch workout left me feeling super energetic. The key for me losing this weight will absolutely be not eating after dinner. I'm so bad about this! Last night I ate dinner, then an hour later I wanted something else. I told myself if I was hungry enough to eat, I had to eat veggies - so I sauteed up a few brussels sprouts and ate them - that did the trick. Then I had a glass of wine but whatever

Treadmill after work - not good, not bad.
