WOW where has the time's going to be friday already, and I found out yesterday they are giving us off Monday so I am thrilled about that....
Things are going well, the usual struggle with food temptations and even more candy and junk at work, we all brought our left overs to work, to share.....yikes....but I did not do to bad,...
now working on the New Years menu.....crablegs and shrimp for New Years Eve, and Spaghetti, per request from Gary for New Years Day, it's one of his favorites, with what he calls real Spaghetti, the long thin
As for the feet and legs, they have been bothering me, but I must admit I sort of know the reason, I upped the grade on the treadmill, and have been pushing it, that seems to bother the calf muscles and then the feet I have a condition can't remember the true medical name but the short and sweet of it I have a congenital foot malformation, it is inherited from my Dads side of the family and was told years ago it will get progressively worse as I age, gee guess I am who isn't....I have malformed bones in my feet and they are starting to grown up ward ,and thats the pain.....I want to pretend it's not true but have seen x-rays of my feet and I was shocked, that was about 25 years ago. so a lot has happened and well to be honest I never wore the inserts that were made for I have only myself to blame....can I do anything about it now, I'm sure I can, but will I....the pain is not that bad yet so knowing me, stubborn and bull headed, I won't till it gets so bad I can't walk....
I do have exercises to do and using heat and ice helps....also tomorrow or this week end a new pair of walking shoes will be bought....The best fit I can find for these toes that are growing upward....
enough of my footsies.....I am a tough old bird and I will get through this , the snow is all but gone and the temps were in the low 60's and that alone helps my pain....

thanks for listening and being my sounding board....and mostly putting up with me and my issues...

    Plantar Facitis killed many exercise programs of mine in the last 10 years until I went to a store called "Goodfeet" 13 months ago and got fitted that day with inserts. Within a month, I found SP and have walked/run 800 miles in 2011 without foot pain. Best $500 I ever spent!

    Get help now!

    I can relate with the foot issues, Kitt -- my old foot bones weren't happy at all with the races I did this past year, so I had to curtail the walking. That's okay because I prefer riding my bike anyway. Hope you have a wonderful long weekend!!!!!
