I’m just lamenting the fact that I had to put my exercise plan on hold after I slipped and fell really badly on icy steps a couple of weeks ago, during one of Philadelphia’s massive snow storms.
I’m not looking to lose radical amounts of weight for my wedding (which is on July 10, 2010). I just want to get back into a steady exercise routine. When I’m being good about that, I tone up really fast. It just stinks that I can’t do very much more than walking right now, and even then, if I walk for too long, I start to hurt.
I fell really hard on my pelvis, and it looks like it was a fracture, not a bruise. I can’t tell you how much pain I was in! I’m lucky, though. If I had fallen at a slightly different angle, I could have had a clean break through my pelvis, or even severely injured my spine.
Has anyone else been in this situation, trying to up your fitness level in spite of an injury? I’m eating very consciously, but I don’t want to cut back too far on calories to compensate for my lack of aerobic activity. Like I said, the goal is to get fit, not drop massive amounts of weight. Any advice?
