oh. em. gee.

My toe is still kinda swollen and tender, but in general doesn't really hurt. So I tried putting on my sneaker. Felt fine. So I then decided to run. Yippee! I could feel it, in there, threatening to hurt really bad if I stepped wrong. But 6+ weeks sans running has been more than enough.
Especially when you consider how I ate while I was in Dallas.
My favorite: Babes. I don't know why it's called "Babes," but I'm going to go ahead and say it's after the pig, in the movie "Babe," cuz I ate like a little piggy there.

{my hungry little man, always thinking he's about to be fed}
{idk why they had a creepy dummy in the lobby, but I convinced my little scaredy-cat to take a picture "next" to him}

Since messing my toe up, I've been doing the 30 Day Shred level 1 workout that is free onDemand. I've been using 10lb dumbbells to keep it challenging, and I lost something like 6-7lbs just doing that in the absence of running. And being that I haven't ran in 6+wks, I could really FEEL the difference. My running tank did not ride up, as I have no little gut that I'm stretching it over. My legs seemed to glide as my thighs hardly touch each other anymore. I'm light and free. Yay running.

  1. I am getting the 30day shreed as well! Free with my SwagBucks! Woot! I am glad it works for you. I am hoping that this will be what I need since its hard for me to peel myself away to get into the gym.
