Lifestyle change: Your best move is to begin socializing & ultimately trianing with triathletes or other people who are aerobically fit. It's a matter of changing how you feel about exercise, diet and fitness rather than us prescribing a regimen. Eat enough protein to keep / build muscle and plenty of low-calorie, high-nutrient fruits and vegetables. Some resistance training will help with the muscle growth.

Crack out the glue: Anti-bacterial ointment and a band aide will work, but if that is not available then in a tough pinch and depending on the severity of the cut, grab some crazy glue, as silly as this sounds the component in it is basically the same as a liquid band-aide or barrier film, so clean the cut with water and apply some glue if no band aide and ointment are available.
