 Re: Keeping fit on a fractured foot

I am not the best example of this, since I gained 12 lbs with my broken ankle. But, focus on your diet. For weight loss, focus on your diet. For strength and general health, that's where exercise fits in.

Other than that, I'm in the same boat right now- limping in my boot. I got the go ahead to use a recumbent bike- so I bought one on sale and wear slippers using it. I also found some seated exercises on youtube (HASfit has a really good one!) which is more strength training but a bit of cardio too.

I know the frustration and if anything just want to say I know how you feel. I have my fitbit back on and lol, I'm lucky if I get 2500 steps a day. I live in a very snowy area so I can't really limp/walk outside, so I only get steps from work and the house. I cannot wait to be able to walk without the boot and be able to drive again to go to the gym for walking at the very least. Or for the snow to melt so that I can go for walks outside.

I digress, Myfitnesspal is a good food tracker and if you aren't already watching your calories, it's a great place to start!
