Avoid excess carbohydrates. Even inactive, if you consume fewer than 150g carbs/day, you should be fine. No sugars/sweets/pasta. Do as much as you can. Pushups? Planks? these would involve you being on your forefoot. Look into Yoga leg extensions. Just don't push the area affected - let it heal properly; you'll spring back fast after you convalesce.
