Y’all, I bailed so badly tonight. Like, worse than Bette-Sue on The Biggest Loser last night.
I was walking from the bus stop to meet my Brownies leaders for a meeting. I was running late, but also trying to get my heart rate up a bit, so I was speed walking at quite a clip, rocking out to my iPod. I must’ve caught the edge of my shoe on the curb, but I went down HARD. Both my knees are ripped up, and one of them has a HUGE lump (like it looks like I have a second kneecap!). The worst though is my hand – it’s super torn up and bruised… my thumb hurts a tonne too, and I think I might have chipped the bone. Guess I’m going to the doctor tomorrow if it still hurts.
The good news is that my meeting ended up being 4 hours of heavy cleaning and organising, so it was quite the workout, at least.
Sometimes I think the world is out to get me… just as I was happily settling into a near-nightly routine of pushups, situps, squats, etc., I rip up my knees and hand so much I can’t handle the pressure of pushups or the knee-bending of squats.
