What to do while in a boot?



Recommended Posts

So, I was getting in a good groove - Pilates Sunday, personal trainer Monday, walking or bike Tuesday-Thursday, and some sort of just walking around Saturday. But I fell on Thursday and broke a toe (maybe 2) on my left foot and exacerbated and old stress fracture and likely tore something on my right foot. I'm in a boot on my right and have to wear Tevas on my left to allow for the taping and swelling on the broken toe. So, none of my current exercise routine works for me for about a month. Anyone have any suggestions of what I can do? I don't know that I really need it to be good exercise. I more just want something to keep me doing something so that I am still in the habit when I'm cleared to exercise again.

Thanks!

Ask for PT. They'll set you up for exercises that continue to work on your core while you heal then will work with you to redevelop your food. Sorry about the fall!!

Thanks - I hadn't thought of that. I'll call my doc on Wednesday and see if I can get a referral.

      Today I had my first post surgery update. I haven't eaten anything other than the occasional popsicle and my daily protein shakes in 2 weeks. I have lost 30lbs in those 2 weeks. The doctor is happy. I am starting to see changes I have no more swelling in my legs after sitting at my work desk all day. I don't get to eat an egg till next week. I have my total carb and protein counts so when I can start eating I know how much I can have. My surgeon / doctor has been great thru this whole process. He listens and gives good information about what to expect and what I should be doing. He has an amazing team here in Boise. I am glad I went with him to do this life changing process.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.
