"Look at you, working out with a broken toe!"
That was Joe today, my buddy at the gym. He's my cheerleader.
This is Week 3 of working out: weights, rowing, abdominal exercises and stretching. Celebrated by getting new workout leggings on sale.
Yesterday I gingerly walked barefoot indoors for 40 minutes. Mistake. In bed, the weight of the down comforter - feathers! - made my broken toe hurt. It kept waking me up.
Resting for four weeks felt like my muscles were melting, growing slack. Reached my disgust level. I'm making a comeback.
Still in the boot. It's been 5 weeks. Will see my podiatrist and get more x-rays in two weeks.
