my achy breaky, everything!!!

Monday, April 28, 2014

Feet and legs are still aching.
Why is this I wonder?
I didnt walk anymore in the 3 days I went to the festival than I probably do in a week.
Maybe its due to walking so much at once, and so many people that you are walking in such slow steps you are standing more than walking.
Seems like I can predict it will take 4 or 5 days after the festival every year for my body to fully recover.
Someone suggested this could be a part of my vitamin deficiency.
I am taking vitamins daily, and now that the weather is getting warmer, I am trying to get my vitamin d thru the sun as much as I can.
Instead of taking it or eating it because apparently its in my intestine where the issue resides.
Guess I will find out if its working in 13 more days when I go back to the doctor.
But not today, the sun is no where to be seen, its getting ready to start down pouring rain.
And as tired as I am, I have laundry to do and rooms to clean and alot of trash to take out.
I am also feeling down due to having made the mistake of getting on the scale, going against my little voice telling me not to and against my own judgement.
So, I have gained a few pounds and I shouldnt be surprised.
Stress eating and not exercising as much and the festival junk.
So, this is all just coming to a head and its time to stop this before it gets any farther out of control.
Yesterday was a fair day for me, while I was too sore and achy to exercise, I did make much better food choices.
And stayed within calorie range.
I am actually looking forward to these next two doctor appointments because I plan to have them test my thyroid, a1c and other hormones and such.
I have to find out what is causing this weight gain and lack of losing, and yes I know I can be working harder, but I am NOT eating to the point of gaining this way.
There has to be something I can do now to nip it.
So today I am going to lift weights and use the stretch bands, focus on the upper body until my foot begins to feel better.
It was swollen so big yesterday and the pain was bad, last night in my sleep I must have flexed it and made it hurt worse.
I am positive that the bone isnt healed at all and this is just something I have to live with.
I am tired just posting this.

    Aww, I'm so sorry you hurt. But I admire you for finding a way to exercise even though your foot is hurting so much. Atta girl! Let us know how your hormone testing turns out. My thyroid stopped working when I turned 50 and I'd never had a weight problem but I did then! And it's not so bad; you just get on thyroid hormones and you feel so much better and then you can lose the weight.
    Let us know how things go.

    I hope you do get some rest and good answers from the doc. I would definitely take it easy if your foot hurts that much. I wish you well. Feel better soon!

    Poor thing! I have been in that same position of foot pain getting in the way of my ability to exercise or do much of anything else. Best wishes for your foot and your doctor visit as well!
