I seriously have no clue of what I was doing when I sprained my toes. I've been a klutz since the day I was born. I have sprained toes, sprained ankles (each one at least 3 times). I could have been walking and twisted my foot wrong initially. I woke up with the toes twisted in the bed sheets. It's more along the lines of...."here we go again".

Are you a member of a local gym? You could use the rowing machine. You do push off with the ball of your foot but it doesn't affect your toes like running might. Talk to your doc. Good luck and great job trying to work around a challenge!

Ouch! You could focus on upper body. Coach Nicole also has some chair exercise videos on here.

Ouch! Take it easy and maybe talk to your doc. What were you doing when the injury happened?

Getting injured isn't something to play around with. Too often folks will try to "push through the pain", or are afraid to stop exercising long enough to heal.
This is a mistake! Continuing to exercise is a great way to exacerbate injuries. You need to see your doctor and get his/her clearance for exercise. It's impossible to isolate your body in that way; even if you stick to non-impact exercises, you still risk straining the injured foot.
Take care of your body... taking some time off won't derail your efforts. Remember that weight loss is about diet, anyway... not exercise!

Ouch! That sounds painful. You may want to check with your doctor to get clearance for exercise while you heal. And good luck in the healing process.

I don't know how I did it, but I sprained the two smallest toes on my left foot. So I'm trying to be careful in any exercising I do. Walking is out. I think that I can probably peddle my exercise bike. We'll see how it goes!
