Broken Foot

Friday, September 10, 2010

Well, I spent 2 weeks in Emerald Isle for vacation and stressed over gaining weight. I got home and weighed and found that I did in fact gain one pound. I figured that wasn't too bad. Then on Sunday, I decided to take another trip......rolling my ankle and breaking my foot trip that is. So NOW what do I do. I know dragging a heavy boot around and walking with crutches is somewhat of a work out but I don't think it is enough for me to lose much less keep me from gaining while I am grounded for the next 4 to 6 weeks. HELP!! If anyone has some advice, I would love to hear it. I don't want to undo the weight I have already lost. The doctor has said to stay off of it for 3 weeks and on the 4th week try to use it with the crutches. I think this is going to be a LONG 4 weeks.

    So sorry to hear about your accident! Maybe you can do strength training on your upper body to burn some calories. You might not do so bad on your weight if you keep up with your nutrition. You are's going to be a long 4 weeks. But I have faith in you that you will make it through!!!

    Oh no! Such bad luck, but I'm sure just as MPALMER said, just keep up with your nutritional goals, don't let your ankle stop you from achieving your goals!

    I am so so sorry! All I can suggest is to just be really good about your nutrition. Hope it heals quickly!
