Today’s workout included Chest & Triceps with some abs sprinkled in. I’m playing around with equipment and figuring out what I can do without putting any weight on my right foot. I get a lot of help from my loves, my friends (near and far) and my Blue scoot. Thank you for the good Juju you put out into the world. I’m grateful as hell. 🙌🏽 xo Denise

Two weeks down and I can’t wait to put my foot down on the ground. So far so good and this woman is being a model patient and doing everything I can to keep my foot off the ground. I’m looking forward to seeing my surgeon this week and fingers crossed he will tell me I can start putting weight on my foot, which brings me to my next idea. Maybe I can do my next live cam show this coming Saturday early afternoon !?

A recent video posted to my YouTube channel got over 1 Million views. I was surprised to find that almost half of those views were from India! So in response to that I went looking for women bodybuilders from the top five countries that watched that video. In order: 1) India, 2) US, 3) South Korea, 4) Brazil, 5) Germany. Here are some of the amazing ladies I found! Things get pretty interesting, check out my reaction video and let me know where you are from! xo Denise

Denise Masino Boot Season

December 2, 2019

Yesterday was my first day out of the house and I decided to embrace my moon boot and the season. Boy am I glad my left leg is strong enough to do all the work around here. This last week has made me hyper aware of my leg strength and balance because I can’t put my right foot down. So what is this challenge meant to teach me? I can’t see my short term disability as a problem because I know I can be better because of the test my left leg and upper body are getting. And, I appreciate my strength and balance even more than before. The loss of muscle, bone and balance as we age can stop us from enjoying life and I’m sharing this because I hope to remind you to keep moving by strength training so that you can live your most powerful, joyful life. Are you with me on this? #strengthtraining #fitnessmotivation #fitover40 #missfit4lifeShow #denisemasino

Denise Masino on crutches!

Walking with crutches for the first time in my life, tackling steps, the bath, chairs & every NORMAL obstacle on the floor like a small floor rug or a piece of clothing has been a real eye opener. The crutches are helping me get from point A to point B in the house, but I can’t carry anything, not even a cup of coffee!!! Regardless, I think there is a new workout routine here somewhere. 💪🦵🦶👩‍🦯👩‍🦯👩‍🦯 #keepmoving

My post surgery follow-up yesterday was a little tense, but all went well and I’m happy with my progress and so was the doctor. I got new doctor’s orders which include toe exercises of 25 reps of movement for my big toe each day. I’m thinking I will mix my toe workout with my morning crunches to make it feel like more of a real workout. I’m icing and hoping around on crutches and my goal is to master these sticks so that I can start doing tricks with them 🙂 One step at a time! Thank you all for your love and well wishes! I am #Grateful for you all and wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. xo Denise

New Kicks to help me heal.
One to protect the non-weight bearing foot and the other is a cryo foot and ankle cuff for icing. I think I really love this cryo gear and can’t wait to see what my doctor says about my progress so far. I’m going to see him tomorrow so keep your fingers crossed! I’m learning how to make this all work and you know that I’m already plotting my next workout! Stay tuned!

‪Day three of my “keep your foot up” adventure and I’m doing better. I have great people and good energy around me and I am thankful for that. I really just want to thank you all for the well wishes! 🙏🏼 I think I have everything I need to move forward. I’ve got my moon boot, my crutches, my pain medications and lots of healthy, high fiber fruit to keep things running smoothly. And I just discovered the loopy emoji!🥴That’s me right now, moving slow like a turtle and a little loopy, but most of all I am grateful! ‬🐢🦶

One step at a time baby!

“Loosey Goosey Metatarsa… No Bueno”
I should have asked the surgeon to draw a smiley face on my toe!

Dear members, you may remember that I was complaining about problems with my feet earlier this year. Those issues turned into me doing a lot of research and to talking to several podiatrists and surgeons before finally making the decision to have surgery this week. I am happy to report that I am on the other side of surgery and that I have my first follow up appointment this week. I plan to be a model patient and to do everything in my power to aid in my recovery. I will follow all of the doctors instructions of no weight bearing on my right foot and take my medication like a boss. I will also include icing and the best nutrition and hydration I can use. I suck at down time but I’m looking forward to getting back on both feet and into the gym again. Stay tuned for more updates on my progress as I will be sharing the details with you and if you have any questions please email or leave a comment. I have lots of fun new video and photo posts coming this week including my new Vampirella Video. Love and Thanks! xo Denise
