Broken Toe

Friday, May 28, 2010

Can you believe I broke my toe last night? I was carrying the recycling into the garage and came down on slightly on the step, slipped and fell and somehow broke my toe. I saw a doctor today who did xrays and it is broken. He wants me to see an orthopaedic doctor which I am doing on Tuesday.

Now I have to figure out what to do about the weight loss and exercising. How does one exercise with a broken toe? I will do some strength training, but not sure what kind of cardio one can do not involving the legs. Ideas? It is either that, or I imagine I need to reduce my calorie intake a bit while I am less than optimal on the cardio. Currently, before breaking my toe, I have been alternating between the treadmill and my stationary bike. Not going to do either until at least after Tuesday.

    Ouch, I've stubbed mine and know how much that hurts, I feel for you. I'm sure someone, more experienced will be able to answer your question about exercising with a broken toe. Hoping it mends quickly, for you!

    Sorry to hear about your broken toe. I hope it mends/heals soon emoticon
    As for exercise, you could try pilates, upper body ST, swimming (?) and maybe a few Yoga poses.

    Try yoga. You might be surprised how much of a work out you get. You should be able to do most of the posses with out hurt your toe. You could also try a row machine. Good luck I have broken my toe a few times and it really stinks.
