An honest moment: what people don't tell you about a sidelining injury...Muscle atrophy is so real! 5 weeks after I broke my ankle and got my cast off, I saw my calf for the first time. My leg looked like it did when I was 12! It was tiny and hairy ๐Ÿ˜‚...and I made the mistake of weighing myself. In 5 short weeks, I had lost 14 pounds! 14!! I think 10 of them were from my left leg and butt alone. How is that even possible! All of these years I've spent building my lower half and within 5 weeks, my legs looked like I had never squatted in my life. Ha! #noreally
Honestly, the worst part for me is getting dressed. Dresses look inappropriate with my I walk and none of my dress pants fit. None! They all look terrible! For someone who dresses up almost everyday for work, this is not only a frustrating struggle for me to find clothes to wear, but everyday is a reminder to me. A reminder of what I've lost for lack of better term. Plus I just feel so sloppy wearing baggy dress pants. ๐Ÿ™„ Thankfully with @rpstrength and being able to workout, I've been able to gain 7-8 lbs back. I know the rest will come once I can start walking and squatting again ๐Ÿ™. In the meantime, I broke down and bought two pairs of new dress pants last night! I hated spending money when I have SO many great pairs already but I was tired not only of the constant reminder that I'm a hot mess, but of just feeling self conscious. I just kept holding out, hoping I would magically go back to being the old me overnight. I know it sounds dumb, but buying new pants to me was accepting that this is my current reality and I have to be okay with it.
I'm rocking a pair to court today and feeling so much better! Cheers to little confidence reminders and to accepting what you cannot change overnight. โ˜บ๏ธ #itsthelittlethings #likenewpantsthatfit #brokenanklegains #confidenceboost

Another day, more arms and core ๐Ÿ˜œ. Today I had lots of strict work (seated presses, hspu, rope pulls), inverted rows, my favorite core cycle (๐Ÿ˜‰), some butt/hammie accessory and the bike! While I can't put weight on my foot, I'm allowed to set it on the ground (and gently on a petal). I've figured out how to bike without putting much pressure on my foot and it feels so good! My arms are going to be so dang strong after the boot comes off! I love starting my week with a good ole sweat sess with friends! ๐Ÿ’ช #sweatingmyassoff #iloveit #mytherapy #Mondays @vullsport @blonyx @tenperformance @tryabouttime @rpstrength @greaterthan @2poodperformance

Learning to say no so I can slow down and enjoy the little moments so much more. โ˜บ๏ธ I've enjoyed every second of my weekend relaxing and refilling my cup. Feeling refreshed and excited to start a new week! Cheers to Sunday's spent catching up on life, eating cornbread and gelato, drinking wine and friendship. #weekendvibes

Date night stop #1 ๐Ÿท. Getting tipsy with my man and talking about our hopes and dreams. โ˜บ๏ธ #myforever #myguy #hegetsme

Getting back to the habit of early morning workouts! If I'm being honest, it SUCKS to wake up early...Especially when Daniel stays in bed and tries to keep me there! Ha! ๐Ÿ˜ด But once I'm up, I'm up! Plus I love being home at night! The only negative = having to shower before work because I can't stop sweating ๐Ÿ˜œ. #itssohumid #thestinkylawyer #caniwearthistowork #gettingbackontrack #earlybird #whyismystomachsowhite #ineedatan #tgif @rpstrength @tenperformance @blonyx @tryabouttime @greaterthan

When the best part of your day is hurrying home from work to hang with your best friend ๐Ÿ˜˜.

Little footsie update 5 weeks post surgery no โœŒ๐Ÿฟ๏ธ. The great news: the doc said my bones are healed and my mobility is light years ahead of what he's seen in the past at this stage ๐Ÿ˜. Yeah!
The "be patient" Melissa news: because my break was so bad, the cartridge needs time to heal. 6 more weeks with no weight bearing (boo!!) BUT after 6 weeks, I'm totally boot free! I can't wait!
Everyday I get a little stronger mentally and physically. Today I wanted to walk (who wouldn't!), but I left still feeling happy with the great recovery news. No tears this time. Ha! #babysteps What's 6 more weeks ๐Ÿ˜‰. Thank god for my little peg leg @iwalkfree and thank YOU for the continued cheers and prayers! #babysteps #brokenanklegains #gettingstronger #6moreweeks #thenfreedom๐Ÿ˜˜

Daily reminders not to give up = Seeing a picture of yourself and knowing dozens of people see it everyday. I want people to look at me and say "because of her, I didn't quit." โ˜บ๏ธ Regardless of your situation, we all need that somebody- I want to be that somebody to someone. #lifegoalsโค๏ธ #bethatperson

Breaking my ankle has meant working on my "holes". Core is most definitely one of them! My abs are fake! ๐Ÿ˜‚ #noreally Abs may be made in the kitchen but unfortunately I can't eat my way to a strong core! Ha!
For me, a stronger core means less back pain and tighter gymnastics positions, both of which I could use! @hoosiergator has me doing this core circuit a few times a week and I hate it, but need it and will learn to love it. Give it a go!
5 rounds of:
10 hollow rocks
10 v ups
10 tuck ups :20 hold

1:00 min rest
My holds at the end were just sad ๐Ÿ˜‚ but I did my best! Have fun! #corework #rebuilding #basics #operationfixmyholes #bionicMel @greaterthan @blonyx @tenperformance @tryabouttime @rpstrength @2poodperformance
