Toe-tally Awesome!

Today's installment of the Broke Toe Chronicles:

Today, I decided to try out the elliptical. I need some more cardio in my life. I love yoga, but I need some extra stuff, too. Instead of wearing my sneakers, I wore my sport flops. Like those Ni.ke ones that all the soccer players where. I wore them with socks. It was looking maaaaad country. But, it worked! Right now the broken toe is NOT liking sneakers or any other shoe that is too snug in the toe area.

Now that I know I CAN elliptical with minimal impact on my toe, I plan to add that three times a week, for now. I know I'm supposed to be making sure to pay attention to every day and enjoying the transition, but I really want to get to week six and be able to move the toe without pain.

Thanks, mama! Had to get back in the saddle. I had it between resistance levels 7 and 8. :)

Usually watching the morning news...local and then Good Morning America. There's so much crap going on in this world, I can't help but be distracted. LOL!
