Injuries and Setbacks

So the past week has been a frustrating one for me. On top of being quite busy I somehow managed to injure my left leg in two areas and I don’t even know how it happened. I have had this constant ache close to my hip.. not sure if its the muscles or my IT band but it really is uncomfortable. The other is my ankle. I was having pain when I walked and moved my foot. So I was feeling around and realized it was also swollen. So yea no running and major weight bearing activities for almost a week now. I have done workout for my upper body and core but tried to minimize things that I thought would aggravate it. So running was definitely out of the question. Today it feels a bit better so I did some squats and lunges on top of my other exercises but no running just yet.

Injuries suck and it is frustrating not being able to do what I want. I just hope this goes away soon and I am able to easily get back into the swing of things.

On another topic I start my new job tomorrow!!! I am super excited 😀

My sis and fiance were both feeling sick so I made this immune boosting juice! Carrot, orange, grapefruit, sweet lemon and ginger!

My weekend has been decent so far. Last night went out for dinner with 10 friends to celebrate our recent engagement. It was a great night surrounded by great friends.

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend so far.

    • Honestly I don’t follow a specific recipe I just taste and go from there but approx it was:
      3 oranges
      3 grapefruits
      5-6 carrots
      1 sweet lemon
      about a 2 inch piece of ginger

      I put quite a bit of ginger because of the health benefits but keep in mind the ginger is quite strong and gives quite a kick. I would suggest putting less and tasting it and add as you see fit.
