crabby--foot situation

this summer i had my derma check a mole on my foot--she checks it every year and measures. this year she noted it had a red dot in the center--a sign that my body is fighting it. so i had to have it removed.

i didn't want to take care of it this summer....because COVID and i was running 5-6 days a week. she said i shouldn't wait any later than christmas break.

so i had it done yesterday. WHAT was i thinking? i think i was in complete denial about the seriousness...it took 2 stitches to close up...and i asked, "how long until i can run on it?" "2 weeks until the stitches come out...maybe 3"

lost 20 pounds last year (really just march-november)--then gained 5 back in past 2 months. one of my goals is to lose 20 again (that previous 5 and 15 more)--my plan was to up my running/walking game---i don't do a great job exercising during the school year--so another goal was to track my workouts on a calendar (with fun colored pens) so i would be inspired to not break a streak and see how long i could go.

seriously--how did i not think this through? so now i have to do leg and arm lifts and sit ups and planks and other random body movements that don't require being on my feet. blecchhhhh....

Hurt foot workouts

I had a stress fracture in my metatarsal this summer and I'm still recovering. I was in a boot for 9 weeks. I found on youtube some workouts by Caroline Jordan specifically geared for people with foot injuries. Some are better than others, but you might find something that will be helpful.

Pahla B on YouTube has some seated workouts. They are free.

Oh yeah, that is a royal PITA. Commit to doing all the other exercises that donít require the foot. And stay off of it. I didnít, and everything came back and Iím looking at a second surgery.😩

A friend's sister had the same situation from what I can tell.

She ended up having 3 toes removed, and then found out it had totally metastasized. She passed.

Please turn your focus to what you have rather thanfocusibg on what you temporarily can't do.
