How did the Material Girl get injured? Dancing, naturally! "She bruised a bone in her foot from dancing in her high heels," her rep explained to The New York Post's Page Six. "She'll be fine and off crutches in a week."

But the fitness enthusiast -- who co-founded Hard Candy Fitness in Berlin, Mexico City, Rome and Toronto -- doesn't appear to be taking any time off to recover. On Thursday, she was spotted hobbling down a New York sidewalk on crutches while heading to her morning workout.

The mother of four, flashing a slight smile to photographers, dressed warm for the winter weather by wearing a fur hat, coat, black sweatpants and sneakers.
