Tuesday afternoon I was chugging away on my elliptical when I started having stabbing pains in my left hip. I don't think I did anything weird, but after a couple minutes the pains started getting worse so I slowed down until I finished my planned 20 minutes on the machine. It quit hurting a few minutes later, but my leg was stiff whenever I got up from my desk that night at work, so I decided to stay off the elliptical for a couple days and just do my nightly walks outside.
Walking outside is a nice break in my workday, but on Friday I wore the wrong shoes, choosing my old favorite dress shoes because I couldn't remember why I stopped wearing them. I remembered about halfway through my walk: they have little zippers on the side of each foot, and the right one won't stay up. This makes the shoe too loose, my foot slides around a lot, and by the time I finished walking my loop I had a quarter sized blister on the bottom of my foot. Yep, the bottom. No getting around that. I get a reminder every time I take a step.
Then on Saturday, Walker, Diva, and I went grocery shopping. I was digging around in my purse looking for the shopping list on the way into the store, but I should have been paying attention because one of the trucks in the parking lot had a big tow bar sticking out from it's backside and I walked smack into it. Hard. I hit the dang thing just under the knee on my right leg. I was rewarded with a ginormous bruise in a really pretty shade of purple.
I think I'll just read a book today.
