foot update.

Sunday, May 17, 2015

So, after a week of foot pain, I do believe it is finally beginning to ease off.
I havent walked for exercise since Wednesday. But I walked some over the weekend around the local festival.
Pain was worse on Thursday evening.
Applying the pain cream daily and soaking my foot in epsom salt seems to have helped.
I hope to try for a Tuesday morning walk.
My foot issues are nothing new.
I actually have, somewhere here on SP, a journal dedicated to my left foot.
It is all about how the pain began when I became a real active walker.
Going for orthotic fittings, podiatrists, etc.
Then the broken bone and the almost year long struggle to overcome that break and set back and wearing the bone growth stimulator, etc.
I suppose knowing what I went thru for that year, slow to heal, vitamin d deficet, etc. gives me fear.
Not wanting to push too hard, but I have to.
This means finding and creating all new means of exercise to avoid too much time spent on the foot.

I did nothing much over the weekend.
Stayed home yesterday and watched Mad Men marathon.
And found myself drawn to late evening/night snacking.
This morning waking up feeling guilt and anger for having indulged a little too much.
I asked myself, "Why didnt you just go to Sparkpeople, for support and to get some much needed ideas about how to avoid this problem"???

Oh well, hindsight.
There will be no junk food in the house this week.
Honey has to start stopping on his way to work to pick up his sweet treats.
Going grocery shopping today and it is going to be healthy and clean eating for me this week.

I know.
I have known for a long time and its time to really get busy. I know it is beyond time to stop this weight from creeping back. It is time to LOSE.
No more excuses or reasonable explanations.
Time to work out and work harder.
