Total Walks: 2
Total Other Workouts: 0
Progress on Training Plan(s): Currently on hiatus while broken toe heals
Injury Report: I broke my left middle toe last Thursday, and it hasn't showed any real signs of healing yet. I've had it "buddy taped" to the toe next to it for stability, and I'm trying to stay off my feet as much as possible, but the toe remains swollen and grossly discolored. According to the sources I read online, it could take 6 weeks to heal, but I'm hoping it won't be this bad that long. The pain is kind of ridiculous considering it's just a toe, but it's nothing I can't handle. I hope to resume some short, easy walks in a week or so, but that will depend on how the healing progresses.
Last Week's Goal(s): Total failure, mostly due to my toe.
Next Event Goal: Still planning on the Arlington 9/11 Memorial 5K.
This Week's Goals: (1) Work on a nutrition plan. (2) Attempt some yoga or some other exercise that doesn't necessarily involve the toe. (3) Get a new battery for my pedometer.

Analysis: There's really not much to say this week. All I can do at the moment is wait for my toe to heal enough that walking isn't too painful. I'll resume my exercise as soon as I can, but for now it's rest, rest, rest. I don't want to end up gaining weight during this period, so it's time to start being more careful about what I eat. As usual, I'm not going to "diet," per se, but I will try to rein in my bad habits and work on moderation in food quality and quantity. I will figure out some guidelines this week and post about them when I do.
