Working on Working Out

So today I went to the gym for first time since surgery.  I have been doing a little bit of arm weights, abs and stretching at home but this was my first time at getting in some cardio.  I went to the gym and did some arm and ab work and about 17 minutes of cardio before I felt like anymore was going to be too much.

It is only my second day in a real shoe (tied very loosely) and I am doing my best to push myself a little but be smart and safe about it.  What I can and cannot do at this point is all up to my foot and me.  I’m pretty free to do activity as I feel up to it.  I do still have a decent amount of bruising and some swelling along with the pain of the actual incision so a little seems like a lot right now. Nonetheless even a little workout did feel good.

So here’s to working out more and more and getting my strength back and my foot to being normal again!
