Fractured Metatarsal

I got a call this morning from the radiologist, & I do have a fracture in my food. *insert extremely sad face & massive emotional drama here* I have to go to get fitted for a boot today. And I thought the running shoes at work look was bad.

Since I'm in a very squirrely mood today, I'll save you the rest of my whining & show you pictures from our first night in Las Vegas! We went to a fancy dinner at Botero, played craps, & had a great time. Note my sandals in the picture - I avoided heels like a good girl, even though it totally killed my style with the dresses. :-)

Answering the tough life questions - hair up, or down?

Michael, being cheesy :-)

The lovely indoor gardens at the Wynn
I'll be the first to admit that I struggled with my eating yesterday. I know that food is not the cure for my current emotional feelings about my foot, but yesterday I tried to fill the void. No more self-medicating with snacks - I'm back on track & ready to maintain my 15 pound weight loss. No gaining!

From yesterday:
  • Breakfast - 1 egg and a bagel thin, coffee + strawberries
  • Snack - 1 skinny caramel macchiato at the doctor's office
  • Lunch - cottage cheese, 1/3 of a burrito + 1/2 a salad (Michael & I shared lunch)
  • Snack - nanaimo bar (I know - healthy, right? ;-))
  • Dinner - tortellini + fresh tomatoes
  • Snack - grapes
Operation Regroup starts today. I could indulge in more self-pity, but honestly, I'm tired of it already. I love a good plan, so I'm going to focus on what I can actually do, and not look back on the five months of training I put in. I can go back to running after this is over. In the mean time, here's my plan:
  • Stick to my eating plan, cutting back 1 snack a day from my running diet, unless I'm swimming and/or super hungry.
  • Hire a swimming trainer who can help me get comfortable in the water so that I can use lap swimming as a workout. (I know how to swim, but I have terrible form.)
  • Focus on upper body workouts + abs, as well as any lower body exercises that don't put pressure on my foot
  • Stay positive. This is a minor blip in my running life.
Any cheery or funny news to make me laugh today? :-) Bad jokes?


  1. Oh, no! Broken bone? That's much worse than a sprain. :(

    You seem to be staying positive and that's great! I'd be clawing at the wall like a trapped rat :)

  2. Kara - only because I've already indulged in the crying fits & mini depression. :-)

    Let me just say that my bitterness that I definitely won't be doing the 1/2 this weekend & most likely won't be able to do the one in July knows no bounds. But, I can't focus on it, or it will piss me off even more.

  3. Sorry to hear about your foot. But, it should cheer you up that your hair is lookin' mighty fine in those pics. LOVE your hair curled like that! Keep doing that. Meow!

  4. Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear about your foot.
    You do look so beauteous though and the Wynn is always wonderful. Hang in there!

  5. i love the dress, you are really rocking it even without high heels. Sorry about the foot I hope it heals up fast.

  6. A blonde goes out for a run. She comes to a river and cannot see a bridge anywhere nearby. She spots another blonde on the opposite bank. "Yoohoo doll!" she shouts, "How can I get to the other side?" The second blonde looks up the river then down the river then shouts back, "You're already on the other side!"

    kinda lame but you asked for it!

  7. Sorry to hear about your foot! Sounds like you have a good plan. Love the dress. It looked great even without the heels. :)

  8. Oh no, sorry to hear about your foot! Your outfit and necklace are cute!

  9. Paula - I had my hair done when I got to the hotel. I'm totally incapable of something like this on my own. ;-)

    Christy - LOVE the blonde joke. :-)

  10. Oh no! I'm so sorry! Hang in there. I wish I knew some funny jokes or at least ones that are so bad they are funny.

  11. How do you get a peanut to laugh?

    You crack it up!


  12. ah you look so pretty! Love the dress & the necklace :)
