Day 63 (day 7 / week 9)

All yesterday it rained, and it snowed while we were sleeping. I woke up early this morning to go do laundry and the first step I took out in the open, I slipped, totally fell and ate it (I couldn't even stand backup the floor was so icy so I kept landing back on --the kind I couldn't see lol). My right knee has a huge gash (that wont stop bleeding) and is throbbing. From my left hip down to my knee (on the side), it's skinned and pretty swollen. It hurts to stand, walk and it all stings pretty badly. I guess today, has to be a (non)rest day :( (for now). Stupid laundry.

If I feel any better will try to do Turbo Jam later this afternoon and will post an update, if I do. For now I will stick to Slim & 6pack and Slim & Limber, and will just listen to my body.

This totally stinks! :(

Hope everyone has a better day than I am having so far. Have a great workout (for me!).

I can do this. I am a star.


UPDATE

(2:30PM PST):
After the bleeding stopped and I finished laundry *grumble* I decided to go for a 60 min walk with Logan, to get moving, warm everything up and listen to my body to see exactly what's going on with it (I fell pretty hard on my side/leg). I am very sore and most of my lower body stings still (and my right wrist--I think I landed on it somehow or maybe the laundry basket crushed it--I don't know), but all in all, my knee and hip are fine, and it seems to be more fleshy wounds than anything. They don't feel painful like when they pop--it's more of an outward kind of pain, than inner (they haven't done that for a while btw--i think the glucosamine is starting to work!). I felt like I wouldn't be hurting myself more if I exercised.

That being said, I did Learn & Burn (Turbo Jam) and feel OK. I pushed through the aches, pains, stinging and what-not (no red flags to worry about) and I didn't go down as deep into the plie thingies (I forget what she calls it) and I didn't kick as high either. I think my left knee might be a little swollen, so I just listened to my body while doing the workout. Learn & Burn is a beginning workout and seems to be pretty gentle on my joints and knees (very low impact). I am happy I worked out, and I don't think that I did anything that will make it hard for me to workout tomorrow or that will hurt my knees/hip anymore. I don't think that I pushed myself to do anything I shouldn't have.

I can definitely say that if I hadn't been exercising for the past few months, that this fall probably would have hurt a whole lot more, and I probably could have done some damage to my knee and/or hip. Exercise has strengthened my body, and protected it at the same time (almost as if its more spongey lol). yaay!

stupid laundry.

Ooouch! Sorry to hear about your fall. I hope it feels better by the end of today...but don't screw up your knee by doing TJ...do your bands or something on the floor...

oh that stinks! I agree, stupid laundry. clean clothes are completely overrated when you have a new workout to do!! hang in there, you're resolve is being challenged and quite honestly, I'm not a bit worried.

There's a reason to buy a dryer right there! (Oh, unless you were walking to the dryer... oh, never mind.) Feel better soon! And I must, must thank you for your kind, supportive words on my blog. I cannot tell you how much it really helped and boosted me, and I really, really appreciate it!
Now go put your foot up and have some (sugar free) hot chocolate! (And remember, even stars have to stand on two legs!)
