No formal gym time, but I walked for close to 3 miles. Best part - my foot didn't hurt at all! I'm still in my orthopedic shoes, I'm nervous to go walking very far from home without them.

Diet:

pineapple
"beef" and veggie stew
1 apple, 1 banana
salad with romaine, green beans, carrot, tomato, and nutritional yeast
1 apple
chickpea and cauliflower curry, brown rice

I'm always inspired by how you include fruit in your diet.

I would also like to see a picture of your new shoes.

I love fruit! I have a serious sweet tooth and fruit keeps me from reaching for other sugary things. I've tried lower carb diets and they just never work for me because I miss fruit too much.

These are the shoes I ended up getting. My surgeon was adamant that they had to be Dansko, and luckily they have a very different vegan options:

I'd like to get these ones eventually but I need to get a job first:

12/01/12:

Didn't get a workout in today. I had an interview at a company that was so draining - I talked to 7 people! I basically had to talk and be on my game for four hours straight so I am drained. I just want to curl up in bed with a book.

Diet:
oats with applesauce, banana, and soy milk
cauliflower and chickpea curry
sushi tacos (tofu, brown rice, lettuce, and carrot wrapped up in a nori 'taco shell')
1 glass blueberry juice
a couple of oranges

Ha, no expense account. The whole job situation is so frustrating right now, made complicated by work visas and the like. Some big decisions to be made in the next two weeks, I'm just waiting to hear back from a couple of interviews. The ones yesterday went alright, I have a follow up phone interview this afternoon so I'm taking that as a good sign.

None at all! I went with my husband and I always tell him to say something if I'm limping, because I can't always tell. He says I'm walking normally but when I try to increase my pace to speed walking I start to walk funny. Once I slow down to my normal pace (which is probably somewhere around an 18:00/mile) then I'm walking fine. So for now that's where I'm staying.

I'm hoping all of this walking helps me make a comeback to running at the end of January, so only a couple of weeks away!
