Watch me hop!

I noticed this afternoon that my left foot felt a little off. Then I went out Lowe's to get the materials for my birds' new cage stand and suddenly my foot became very unhapy with the fact I was walking. Sigh. I gritted my teeth and carried home a large wooden board (think: oversized cutting board), bag of bungee cords, a book, a purse and myself. Ow! I just put together the whole stand and cage (looking great, birds seem to like it) and my foot is feeling worse, not better.

To explain what is wrong... Hmmm, hard to say. I've had this before, several times. It's not a sprained ankle, but more like something that hapened to the top of my foot, so that flexing my foot up or down hurts the top of my foot like crazy. I don't know if it's a muscle, tendon, pinched nerve or what, but something is snapped out of place. I don't think there's much I can do about it but wait.

Meanwhile, I think I am going to have to skip my workout tonight. I would really like to do it, but I don't see how I can do the treadmill, bike or stairmaster, since all of them involve the foot and ankle. The only thing I could is lift weights but that seems pointless since I'm out to burn calories, not get buff. Too bad, since I just bought myself a pair of those knee-length spandex workout shorts -- the end of chafing, I hope.

I think I'll getting hopping (ha ha) on dinner, then maybe soak my foot in hot water with something like lavendar in it.
