Bruised, but Not Broken

Sunday, July 07, 2013



This week was an interesting one. I was doing well with my training plan until Jillian Michaels hurt me again emoticon lol. I have always hurt myself doing her exercises in some way or another. I believe that it is the fast sequence of high impact moves back to back. I can do jumps but not 2 or 3 different jumping moves emoticon. Atleast it wasn't my knee like last time, This time it was my foot. BUT... I do believe the injury was my own fault. I was exercising barefoot. I know I knew better! I've hurt my foot this way before. But I feel so much more comfortable being barefoot when I exercise I've come to find out. But high impact and barefoot wasn't a good idea. I've stayed off my foot since Tuesday and have kept up my healthy eating. Until yesterday when my sister and I had In-N-Out emoticon emoticon and a burrito from a local Mexican restaurant that just bad there grand reopening after being away for so long. It was very nostalgic lol. But I won't be doing it again anytime soon.

My foot feels better from all the icing, compressing, and elevating (Remember to always I.C.E.) and tomorrow I'll ease back into something easy exercise wise. I think I want to look into some minimalist shoes with good padding, if they exist, to do my strength training and other aerobics and also a pair of good running shoes emoticon . My current sneakers I use them for everything but I don't like them for anything but running.

So the search is on and I am chugging along slowly but surely! Choo choo! emoticon

    injury does not seem that serious which is good. Maybe with a few more tweaks - you'll be able to do J M injury free.

    I have had foot pain in the last week, so I can relate with taking it easy! I have to be careful with the high impact! Have a great week!

    Sorry you hurt yourself :(( I wouldn't dream of doing any high impact with bare feet, just puts too much strain on your joints.. My boxercise class had a girl trying to do it in bare feet and the instructor immediately told her to put shoes on. Its too easy to get an injury. I hope you find something you can be comfortable in! Also, there is the factor if you are carrying extra weight that puts even more impact on a rather small appendage.. Please be careful and look after yourself!
    Once and a while, treats are okay! I had lunch out with my sister, who I rarely see, a quesadilla from La Paladas as well as sweet potato fries, not likely I will be going back there any time soon.
    Have a good Sunday!

    About 3-5 years ago I hurt my foot exercising barefoot. I have been in PT two different times. A couple weeks ago the PT and doc both told me because of the length of time I have had the injury I will probably always have some pain. Just be diligent about the stretches. I was told to get a good pair of running shoes as they offer the most support.

    If you find the right shoe, please post about it.

    Two different pair of shoes are a great plan. I love Jillian but even modified I am not ready for her! Maybe someday. I am really doing well using my fit bit and run/walking the couch to 5 K (c25k) program. Week 5 day two. Good luck and keep it up!
