Another BOO BOO

WARNING! Yucky toe pictures 

On Monday I was out in my gym  garage where my workout equipment is.
 I was lifting and having a great time. 
 I was picking up the weights out of the holders getting ready to do dumbbell rows.
I started to lift the weight and one of the individual weights fell off and fell on my right foot.
Tuesday my foot was hurting ,but I thought it was the third toe that I had clipped off the end 2 weeks ago.
Thank you OCD for let me doing a little too much clipping.
Anyway I wasn't able to wear shoes for a week due to it. 
So I took off my sneakers and look at my foot and saw that my toe cleavage was bruised. 
The big toe was fin but the 3 toes were puffy after having my shoe off for a while. 
I know it doesn't look too bad and it could have been worse. 
 Excuse the chipped polish. Lamo pedicure! 
I really need to be more careful with my weight and my feet. 
Hugs, Bobbi Jo

So not only have I been a blog slacker but also a fitness slacker. 
For two weeks we had gone to Pinetop on vacations for 4 days each. The other 3 days of the week I did my workouts. I didn't eat terrible but I didn't eat fantastic either. 
 Then the week after that when we were home I was feeling just lousy. I had a ear infection that my body just wanted to shut down and sleep, sleep and more sleep.
This week was much better. I did my workouts, kicked up the weights and felt every muscle that I had worked after it was done and still a couple days later. 
Eating is better but I don't think I have been eating enough so I need to up that.
I am at a plateau it seems or it could be that I didn't have my period in July and I am feeling bloated and gross. (Sorry if that was too much information).
I have to wonder if I am headed into menopause? 
This truly scares that crap out of me! 
Any way I am going to tweak up my program adding more running and cardio along with continuing with the weight training.
I decided to start training in my running in my bare feet on the treadmill. 
I thought it was a blister but seems that I just took off some layers of the skin. 

 I took pictures for progress yesterday and I am seeing a little but not much,
But a little is better than none.
 The pictures on the left (in the socks) are from June and the ones on the right in the sneakers are from yesterday. I am seeing loss in the belly and the waist and thighs. 
These always get me depressed. GRRRRRRRR! 
So this is it for now. 
On with life, working out, eating clean and making every day a new start.
Hugs, Bobbi Jo
