Forced Healing Fractured Feet and Bending Jean Genders

Thursday, March 24, 2011

I've got a busy weekend so I need this foot to get healed already. I just got some cool jeans and I wanna be able to boogie Saturday night on my favorite dance floor.

I'm wearing the brace when I have to go anywhere, and I have my foot on ice otherwise

There it is, wrapped up with a cold compress (Watching Top Chef All-Stars)

I'm being good... but it's soooooo boring! I miss my walking. Even though I shouldn't cut back on my intake, I find it hard to eat when I know I'm not going to burn any additional calories in the day. I am, however, getting a lot of curls done with the weights while I sit on my butt. Yay! I'm gonna be beefcake.

I discovered that I wear a size 18-22 in women's jeans. This came up because I was telling Heather about my womanly hips. As I get leaner it becomes apparent that my mother gave me yet another strong feminine trait (I unfairly blame my mom for stuff like that). Anyway, she thought I should try women's jeans, since my hips are kinda wide even though my waist is shrinking... what the heck, I'll give it a go. Luckily, she has pants from every size she's been, so I can test the fit. If only she were taller.

I really want to hike Cowles Mountain on Saturday, so I am pushing for some super healing tonight. Mind over matter! 2 days out of commission is more then enough. Looks like I am the owner of a shiny new Stress Fracture (
ic.cfm?topic=a00379) the symptoms match exactly to what's going on and how the injury occurred. Dang.

Oh well, enough whining. I hope everyone is having a great week and the calories are being burned away!

    Praying for your healing, but please don't push ahead to hard and fast. Because you don't want to end up being cast and unable to bare any weight on that foot! You made your month take a week at leaset. I'm only a nurse, but sure don't want to hear that you hurting any more than you are right now!

    Haha, very funny that you know what size woman's jeans you wear! I don't know if hiking and dancing on Saturday is the best idea. I wouldn't want you to hurt your foot any more than it already is. Then you would really go stir crazy! Be smart! ;)

    I'm all for mind over matter but fact is that you are going to end up sitting on your butt for months if you try hiking AND dancing tomorrow night. Don't even get me going on jeans. I'm only 5'9" but for some reason manufacturers think all fat women are short and I can never find cool jeans that are long enough. Just look on the bright side and think how beefed up your upper body is getting. I can hear the cat calls now. emoticon

    Ha! I've bought a few pair of boy jeans, because they're less expensive and I can buy my waist/inseam exactly without getting the waist with the pants being too short or vice-versa!

Take care of yourself honey. Don'tstress the stress fracture any more than you HAVE to. You don't want to end up worse than you are now! I'm giving you my stern look and finger waggle.

    Chair Dancing

I do NOT mean like this:

I was actually talking about more like this:

Although, I know you can find better music and moves than Jodi.

    Sooo. Cowles Mountain Saturday, and dancing Saturday night in your cool jeans? On a stress fracture? With no insurance to cover SERIOUS additional injuries?


I worry about you.

And you know what else? There's chair dancing. THAT'S RIGHT, I WENT THERE! Chair dancing and other cardio that will get your heart rate up without injuring your leg further. There's even a SparkTeam about it! Heck, there's even a SAN DIEGO COMPANY that makes videos for it. I know it's not the dance floor, but if you're really itching for some calorie burn, what are you waiting for?

    I wasn't even gonna ask about Cowles with your current condition, so as much as you are going stir crazy, please make sure you feel up to it so you don't injure yourself further! BUT, if you are up to it, text me the time and we're there! Hiking and dancing huh? Your poor foot! emoticon Take care
(Oh! and I expect you to be wearing womens jeans next time I see you...LOL) emoticon

    Boo for forced healing that keeps you off the dance floor!
And dont' worry about the opposite-gender jeans. It's all denim. I wore my sons' cast-offs due to cheapness for almost three years....
