....and She's Injured!

Yeah, what a not so great way to start of the weekend! I went to the gym on Wednesday and did one of those 30 minute circuit training workouts. I think I went too hard on the cardio part and now my calf feels so tight and I'm limping. I hope that the pain goes away soon! The hubby keeps calling me gimpy, and although it gets me to laugh, it's starting to become annoying!

So, what do I do when I'm limping around and feeling sorry for myself? I try this free chocolate sample that I got in the mail forever ago.

Betty Crocker Warm Delights Molten Chocolate Cake.

For only 150 calories, you get to make a chocolate cake in the microwave in less than a minute.

It comes out looking like this.
Pretty tasty, no?

All in all, I thought this was a great little treat. It was very tiny though, and I found myself wanting more of it after I was all done. I wouldn't buy this in the store unless they were on sale. From what I remember, they can be a pretty expensive little treat!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! Does anyone have any tips on how to make my muscle relax so that I can walk normally again?

Question of the Day:

What cheers you up when you are sad?

Until next time!

Make sure to stretch out your leg. Flexibility will keep you from being injured.

My hubby usually cheers me up.

Try using a foam roller to stretch out/massage the muscle...the foam roller is my 'wonder drug' for injuries :) Your hubby sounds nice, I need to find one of those!!

Oh no! I hope you're not gimpy for long, girl! That little cake looks good - i've never tried those!

My little family cheers me up - I think having puppies around is an instant cheer-up!

Aww, hope your leg is feeling better! I hate injuries, just make sure you don't work it too hard and make it worse!

Hope your calf feels better soon Anne Marie:) I agree with the chocolate cake, I would want more too!

What cheers me up is seeing my kids laugh or my husband give me a hug.

i got one of those in the mail forever ago too. I made mine recently, but I didn't like it too much. Although I'm not a big chocolate cake fan, so that could be why. hope your leg feels better!

Oh no! Feel better! I'm not sure if this would help, but maybe tiger balm? I used to use it all the time after pointe class.

Ouch! Sorry you are injured! I am injured every other day, it seems like! A cup of new tea (preferable an impulse purchase) makes me feel loads better. I hope you feel better soon!
