Cankles

Excuse me while I gross you out...but folks I have some self induced cankles. Not usually do I possess these large and lovely ladies but this week they're all mine. This is what happens to me when I consume gluten and then throw 2 days of beef jerky and then 2 days of hotdogs for dinner (and that leftover one for breakfast) into my belly ("GET IN MY BELLY!!") This is utterly pathetic. And yes even organic, nitrite free, healthier hotdogs will do this to you (Are hotdogs really healthy? I'm thinking twice about that statement.)

Meet Matilda and Mavis, my little, (er pleasantly plump) little friends. These gals have put my 30 Day Shred routine on the back burner for a couple of days..they're painful. I flippin hate getting old and what the freak is up with freakish ankles??

Are you seriously grossed out yet? Cause I sure am! What kind of sick joke is this? I guess it could be worse, but damn.

Oh no! My ankles looked like that once but it wasn't from hot dogs and beef jerky; I was 9 months pregnant. I hope the swelling goes down soon.

thanks guys for your thoughtful comment. it's discouraging but at the same time probably a good thing that I can't just eat whatever I want without a clear impact on my body. It was a kind of frustrating weekend not feeling like I could exercise b/c of pain or even walk up and down the stairs without knee and ankle pain. Ugg. But better today, much better, no pain!!!
