Does anyone ever feel like they are trading a good for a bad, or a bad for a good?
In order to try to up my iron, calcium and vitamin d levels, I have found myself eating a little more, drinking more milk, Today for lunch I had a baked potato with some vitamin d and calcium fortified butter.
Before, I wouldnt have touched a potato with a ten foot pole.
When I refer to before, I mean during my weight loss period.
That time between May 2012 and January 2013, when I lost 70 lbs and was walking daily and eating healthier choices than ever before.
I find myself struggling to get back to those food plans.
But today is such a great and beautiful day that I am not going to worry about calories.
I am eating healthy, making good choices for the vitamins and nutrients my body needs right now.
The sun finally made an appearance today and not just peeking out, but really OUT.
I, in my shorts and tshirt, sat out on the lounger for nearly an hour, soaking it up.
I hope it was enough for my body to jumpstart that vitamin d process.
I dont go back for more lab test until May.
So, every day that the sun comes around, I am going to, hopefully take full advantage of.
The weatherman, who I have decided is my arch enemy and the first one I will take out in a zombie apocalypse, lol, is telling me that once again, the sun will leave and be replaced with cold, damp, wind and rain, and possibly even snow.
NOOOOO, I cannot take much more!!!

I walked yesterday evening and was distressed and dissatisfied with my walk, because my foot began hurting me again and I am not sure what is going on.
But I am scared the break isnt healed at all and since I have gained some of my weight back, I am putting more stress on that foot.
I did some reading recently about flat feet and one article suggested that doctors have it all wrong when it comes to telling their patients to wear shoes with orthorpeadic inserts and lifts and arch supports, etc.
Some naturalist type doctor suggested the best solution is to go bare foot as much as possible.
To train the arches and feet to support themselves.
Wonder if anyone out there has an opinion on that.
Going barefoot has never been a problem for me, I have spent many summers barefoot.
But my feet are more tender now and I guess since I am a little older, its expected of me to wear shoes, lol.
Not so much planning, but dreaming and idealizing summer vacation and have my eye on the beach again.
Hoping the taxes come soon so we can sit down and do some planning, figure out the priority on bills and payments and make sure the car is in tip top shape for that 8 hour drive.
Hope all of you are having a good day and that the sun is shining where you are.

    Well, the weatherman zombie apocolypse is too funny! I know I have felt that way, often, this winter! We have finally had a couple of nice days around here so I was giving the weatherman a break but now it is back to cold and rain the next two days...he is back on the list!

    Keep making those healthy choices!

    I'm not sure where you live but I am laughing about your wish for your weatherman! Ha! It reached a balmy emoticon -6 degrees here today so I, too, sat outside. I sat on our back patio and had a mini picnic with the dogs.

    Have you ever worn Birkenstock sandals/footwear? My arches fell in both if my feet and then I cracked my spine - have sworn by Birkenstocks ever since.

    Anyway, I hope the rain stays away!
