HI, I must report that after my exercise class from hell yesterday I have pulled up better than I thought. Yes, my muscles are tired but not aching which I am very much surprised about. I forgot to add yesterday that this instructor does a lot of whole body movement, arms and legs at the same time. Also a lot work above the head. The other instructor works on one section at the time.

Since I fractured my toe late last year I have only been doing gentle exercises because my toe was not healing. Unfortunately I still not thnk it is healed yet unless I just cannot wear shoes anymore. If this is the case I am going to have cold tootsies in winter LOL.

I did have advise from the podiatarist? not to do strenuos exercises to give my toe a chance of healing. I have done everything she told me. Now I will have to organise another xray.

I will be back to my gentle exercises today, shopping tomorrow then the exercise class again Thursday. Sounds good to me. LOL.

Weigh day again on Saturday. That is another thing that I have changed,not weighing everyday only twice per week now and yet I forgot to weight today. I found that I was getting to frustrated when weighing everyday and not seeing any change. It is also more exciting when you see a weight loss at the end of the week.

    Good that your body seemed to tolerate the exercise class pretty well. You probably are in better shape than you thought you were.

    Good for you, hanging in with the exercise in spite of the toe. Hope the x-ray shows no damage. Sometimes it just take a long time for it to stop hurting, so maybe that's the case.

    Sorry to hear about your toe. I pray it does end up mending. I know my mother broke her little toe once and it seemed to take forever to heal. I hope yours doesn't take too long.

You are doing so well with your food and your exercise regime. As much as it is hard to not weigh daily it is often better to only do it once or twice a week as we tend to go up and down daily.

Keep up the good work.

    Sorry to hear your toe is still giving you trouble. Another x-ray sounds like a good idea, same with the gentle exercises, and not weighing yourself every day. You are doing great!

    Yes I agree, better get it checked again, feet things take a long time.
Great that you stop weighing every day, once a week is more than enough!

    You are doing really well Wendy. WTG!
I hope your toe is healing well. When I injured my
knee, it was so frustrating not to be able to work
out. Now I go to circuit classes Tues and Thurs and
just love it. Great idea not to weigh everyday. emoticon

    I broke my left arm, falling off a ladder, in Jan. 2012. It was taking forever for the swelling and pain to go away. It wasn't till my pain management doctor sent me to PT for my Fibromyalgia, in September, that the pain and swelling started to subside. I can once again wear my wedding and engagement rings.

Maybe you just need PT for your toe.

    Doing well, Wendy. I can't remember which toe you busted now, but if it was your big toe, then try some T-Tapp SATI (Step away the inches). Since discovering T-Tapp the pain in both my left hip and right knee has gone!! I am a total sceptic, but still waiting for it to come back after a week or more, and it hasn't .. awesome.

T-Tapp is at and they have video try-before-you-buy. Maybe I have talked about this before to you. Can't remember now... but is all good for me.

Have the best day, girlfriend. You are doing really well.
