WIDE Wednesday!

Exercise is a relative term. I think all forms of activity should be counted as exercise. It doesn't have to be in a gym or on a mountain. Some of us have a broken foot and do what we can. That being said, I've been really busting my ass the last few days at work and I've been coming home every night with a very swollen left foot begging for sweet sweet release from it's caged Skecher.

It makes me wonder if this stupid foot will ever get better. I was explaining to Jeff tonite that eating better makes me naturally want to do things besides sit on the couch watching Pawn Stars marathons. I sit there, I want to eat. I can go to the mall and pass every pizza and pretzel stand and not care because I'm not sitting somewhere deeply immersed in finding out if the Paul Revere spoon is a real or fake. (it was real!) BUT...this foot is fucking with my good intentions. It's like walking around with a bear trap stuck to my leg.

I guess walking around a little more at work and defying the deeply set Rules of the Cubicle, coupled by some mall browsing a few times a week, will have to work for now. I'd like to see some pool time in my future but apparently there's some law that no one I know will set up their pool until at least May, so I'm just biding my time...

In this rare time in my life where I'm trying to make no excuses, it sucks that there are so many readily available. I don't intend on letting this foot keep me fat...but it will make things slower. Oh well, baby steps, remember? Baby bear-trap steps...

Anywho, it's Wednesday, so that means it's time to see WHAT I DIDN'T EAT! (who else realized the acronym is WIDE? oh man...perfect.) There was lots of shit I didn't eat from that potluck at work. I was pretty proud of myself. Nary a cookie touched these lips! I ate a lot of my green fruit tray...and pretty much no one else touched it. So hurt.


If I'm being totally honest, I did eat 6 mini eggs. But that was only like 100 calories and I had that to spare. I still included it because I didn't eat the whole bag in one sitting, which would have been the norm. There, now my conscience is free and I can sleep at night. Make it a great Wednesday, dudes!

Whoo! Good for you! I think it's hilarious that the acronym for it is WIDE. Makes me giggle. I honestly don't think I could resist all of that stuff if it was put in front of me. If there were other people around, maybe. But leave me alone in the room and things are gonna get crazy.

I hope your foot gets better soon. Sounds like you're doing awesome. I've gotta work on the exercise department soon...it's one of those babysteps I hate. I think I would have included the mini eggs too...it really is a BIG deal not to eat the whole bag in one sitting. I know what you mean b/c at one time I would have eaten that and a Debbie cake to wash it down. lol Cheers for good choices!

You are killing me. I better go eat a boring filling breakfast right now, because I'm about ready to jump in the car and find any of that!

Is that Reese's Pieces pizza? Good Lord.

The WIDE thing made me almost pee my pants. Hilarious!

High Five on not eating the whole bag of mini cadburry eggs. I still cannot be trusted around bags of candy as proven this week with my MIL's large bag of Peanut M&M's.

My Waterloo is Reese's Pieces Eggs. It's a miracle I haven't eaten the entire two bags I have stuffed in the back of my closet waiting for Easter distribution.

And the W.I.D.E. acronym is hilarious! Nice little oxymoronic twist :)

good job on keepin clear of all that crap! You should see if your Dr. (or did u go to physical therapy??) can recommend a pool that you can go to. All of the people at the one I go to are there for therapy which makes it easy to get in the pool- no one looking at my hiney and checkin me out. lol

Way to stay away from the naughties!!!

Hope your foot is feeling better soon so you can start moving more. Good luck!

I've got an award for you on my blog just as soon as I get it posted. :)

awesome!!!I like the idea of taking pics of things you avoided scarfing down too. W.I.D.E is gonna catch on! hope your foot feels better soon, I fell back a few months ago, and parts of me that have never been bruised were quite bruised--took a while to heel and nothing was even broken! You're doin good shit, keep it up!

Thanks for making me crave those damn eggs at 1 in the morning.

Nobody starts this journey exercising like Jack LaLane, Tricia. I lost the bulk of my poundage by spinning on a stationary bike, but I could only do it for 10 minutes or so when I began. Last week I did an hour and a half on it, and that was before my workout (I was listening to an audiobook and completely lost track of time). Baby steps are fine, espescially since you're nursing an injury. Just keep taking those baby steps, a couple more every day.

Sounds like you're really got the right mindset this go-round. I'm excited for you!

Sorry about the foot! Last year I broke my foot, stress fracture while doing an agility drill for my trainer. It was so tough not being able to work-out... having to do spin all the time. I just don't like spin.

That was a little over a year ago.

I just got home from the doctor.... I had to have a bone scan for another possible stress fracture... this time in my leg and apparently this time from running. SUX!!! I think I am still in denial.... not a river in Egypt!

But reading your post has made me remember that we all face adversity and we have to push through... I have been feeling pretty down today, I needed the little pick me up from your humor.

Thanks!! Enjoy your blog!

Have you ever seen those DVD's Sit N. Fit?? I know they are geared towards older people, but its an exercise DVD you do in your chair - no bouncing the joints or anything. They have them at my library so that may help?

Hooray for all you passed up - great job!
