Pity, Party of One, Your Table Is Now Ready.

UGH. I’ve had a sprained ankle all of 6 days and I’m being really dramatic whiny and pissy. 
It’s really frustrating to have an active job/lifestyle and not be able to move at full capacity. I keep telling myself to grow up and quit whining. It’s only a sprained ankle. It could be plenty worse and I could have WAY more recovery time than just a few weeks, but I’m still pissy. I was told to stay off my feet for 6 weeks by the doc. Six weeks?! That’s just not possible in my line of work… so I was given this boot. It’ll keep my ankle as still as possible when I am on my feet. The boot really is amazing. It makes a world of difference and I’m completely grateful for it… but it’s still annoying having to wear it. 
Even though I’ve got really great clients/bootcampers who are able to still take class without me being able to show them everything, I still want to punch something because I can’t fully demonstrate the exercises I want them to do. “I just want to be able to show somebody this sandbell lunge combo!!”
Look out. 
Even though I’ve got this boot that makes getting around SO much easier, I still want to break something because it’s my right foot that’s hurt. Which means I’ve got to take off the boot to drive, then put it back on to get out of the car. Is that hard? No. Does it take more than 45 seconds? No. Is it really just a small price to pay for mobility? Yes. Why am I so whiny?!
I’m so glad that I’ve got a vast network of active friends and colleagues on Facebook. I love getting to see what they’re up to all the time… except when I can’t partake. Then I get envious and want to CUT somebody. “I really don’t care about your awesome workout today. Or your stupid PR on your race this weekend. Or your beautiful scenery photos from your hike this afternoon. You can all go eat a d***.” 
Not really. 
Really, Ami?
Let’s keep acting like a 5 year old.
That’ll be productive.
And attractive.

Sorry… needed a little venting action.
Back with a more intriguing/entertaining post later.

Being Hurt… And the Glad Game

I’m a big proponent of the Glad Game (full story here) and finding something to be glad about most of the time. It helps keep my mind in the right space and keeps me from being a B when things don’t go my way… There’s nothing worse than Debbie Downers so I try to steer clear of that attitude as much as possible. Unfortunately this was NOT the case the other day when I sprained my ankle and was pissed. I apologize if any of you read my expletive-filled tweet/instagram about it. Can’t be glad all the time…

But then I straightened up and got my ish together. There’s no sense in being pissy for the next few weeks while this mutha heals. Soooo on to find some ish to be glad about. Here’s what I’ve come up with: 
{1} 
Being glad my cueing skills are pretty good. 
I was able to host my TRX bootcamp class from a chair, successfully. 

{2}
Since I couldn’t walk to take out the dogs, my friend/bootcamper Shannon
and her kiddos came over to take them out for me! SO sweet.
And glad I ended up getting to meet my biggest fan, Amelia! 
She thinks I’m famous because of my Kelly Combo TRX video on youtube. I’m ok with it. 
{3} 
Glad there’s a good reason to lay on the couch, drink wine, and watch movies.
My ankle hurts to point/flex so there’s’ no driving for this chick… 
{4} 
And the BEST reason of all to be glad?! 
Getting to drive the electric cart around the grocery store!! 
It was the most fun I’d ever had shopping for food. I swear 
probably 8 people asked me if I needed help. I think they were just jealous
that they weren’t driving the cart, but they were all really nice to me. 
Those electric carts are slow, but they have surprisingly good maneuvering capabilities.
AND they beep when you go in reverse… which I did a few times… just because I could. 
I’m thinking of just wrapping my ankle up in the future just so I have an excuse to ride one again. 
Kidding. 
Maybe. 
; ) 
And definitely glad it’s Friday!! 
What are you glad about today?
