Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is maintaining a sense of humor about her recent foot injury.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum, 39, revealed on Instagram New Year's Day that she will be recovering for at least four to six weeks after suffering a dancer's fracture. Mellencamp Arroyave shared a photo of herself wearing a mask while on crutches in a pharmacy, explaining that the injury happened while playing pickleball.

"I gave 2020 the boot— and 2021 returned the favor! 4-6 weeks to be exact," she said in her photo caption. "Starting Monday because apparently foot fractures are all the rage and there's not a boot in all of LA! See you Monday @weissorthopedics. The silver lining: it's called a 'dancer's fracture' so I'm basically a ballerina now. Pickle Ball: 1. Teddi: 0."

In the comments section of another post on Sunday, which featured Mellencamp Arroyave smiling alongside her 9-month-old daughter Dove, Real Housewives of Orange County star Braunwyn Windham-Burke commiserated about also hurting her own foot.

"I'm in bed with a sprained ankle doing the same thing!! Oh 2021," wrote Windham-Burke, 43, as Mellencamp Arroyave — who also shares daughter Slate, 8, and son Cruz, 6, with husband Edwin Arroyave — replied, "hahaha! I can't wait for my boot to arrive so I can be mobile. I am not the worlds best stationary person. Hope you heal quickly."

On Sunday night, the wellness coach and trainer also expressed her "word" for the new year, setting her intention for growth in 2021.

"I was recently pressed to give my 'word' for 2021. And I came upon 'trust,' " wrote Mellencamp Arroyave, sharing a sunny selfie. "Trust in my family and friends. Trust in my intuition and faith. Trusting what the future holds. Trust in the fact that I have pores like all humans do and there's nothing I can do about it 😂. I know we wanted to wake up to 2021 being 'back to normal.' But we will get there in due time. Trust me."
