A Big Ball of Mush

If a deep-fried Twinkie doesn't sum up this post, I don't know what does.

It's officially been 8 weeks and 4 days since I injured my foot. Good news is my doctor is letting me transition into sneakers. No more hideous boot.

Bad news is I have no idea when I can get back to cardiovascular activity. I have a follow-up foot doctor appointment Wednesday (my bday!) but the doctor really can't tell much from me just sitting there and him poking around the bone. So, I'm assuming he's going to tell me to start walking/jogging on it and see how it feels.

Which is awesome, trust me. I can't wait to get back out there. But at the same time, if I go out for a light jog and have pain, I might just crumble onto the sidewalk and bawl my eyes out. I need this to go away so I can get back to being active. Because right now I feel like....


In 60 days my body may have not changed that much. But in my head it's a big ball of mush. I have no muscle definition, cellulite for days, and am just all over puffy. And to make matter worse, I went dress shopping this week to find something for the many weddings I'll be attending this year.

I don't know if there is a shortage of dress variety or if I just really don't like what's out there currently, but I cannot find exactly what I'm looking for when dress shopping. And the MUSH body didn't help the process.

It's hard for me to get energy to do anything without running. That's what gives me energy. After a run I want to clean the whole house, do laundry, write blog posts, lift weights, and cure cancer - all before turning on the Real Housewives.

But, while I'm still unable to that, I need to do SOMETHING. So I'm going to start some toning and strength exercises. I need to lose some of the mush. Yes, I should have been doing this all along. But I didn't.

So I will attempt to get into a routine of the following exercises before my nightly showers: push ups, crunches (of all varieties), leg lifts, biceps, triceps, shoulders, butt toning exercises, etc. I will ask my doctor next week when I can add lunges and squats back in to that.

I have less than a month until our first wedding and a month and a half until Jamaica. Sooo yea... something's gotta give.

It's not going to be fun or easy to stick to, but I need to decrease the MUSH. Even if it's mental MUSH, it's got to go.
