dinosaurs, and not just in the movies.

Dinner and a movie??
Staying in tonight to watch Jurassic Park, yet again, I can never get tired of that movie and Jeff Goldblum is just a nice added bonus!!!

Coming down off the high I was on from walking and working out yesterday.
Last night, NOT for the first time, I had a foot spasm.
In my sleep, I have had these several times since I broke that foot and they are very scary.
I seriously dont know if they have anything to do with the break, which according to the ortho is healed.
Or, if it is just a muscle spasm, maybe caused by the walking.

All I know is, sometimes, during sleep, I am woke up with my foot moving in an angle that it isnt supposed to move.
It isnt really a cramp, because it doesnt really hurt, but my foot moves in such a way that is unnatural and wakes me up.
It scares me more than anything due to it is always the one that I broke.
The outside of my left foot, the metatarsil bone.
So, my foot will move outward, as though it is trying to bend sideways.
I have been meaning to discuss it with my doctor, but to be honest, she isnt very skilled in anything such as this and doesnt seem to give alot of concern to it.
I would call and make an appointment with the same ortho who treated me for the break, but dont know if he would see me or not.
I had extensive nerve tests done on that foot in August of last year, due to numbness.
They said there is no nerve problem and they did the needle conductive tests.
Electrogram or whatever its called.
They told me there is some very mild neuropathy, probably caused by the break and maybe a vitamin b12 defiency.
I have decided to try to find some type of wrap, that wont bind the foot to tightly, but will keep it steady so it cannot move unnaturally..
Other news.
For that reason and some minor aching, I decided not to walk today.
Woke at 7 am with good intentions and the sound of rain falling hard outside.
Speaking of walking, yesterday while at the track, I was thinking about buying some new, much needed clothes, bras most especially. All of mine are worn out, and I am always such a coward to try new items, but the problem lies mostly with proper fit.

But I really need to find some new workout clothes.
Right now everything I have is dark blue or black capris, danskin stretchy pants and such.
and for a shirt, I wear the same two or three gray or green plain tshirts,
My shoes are always cute, usually pink in some way.Time to move ahead and that starts with getting rid of the same baggy saggy overly used workout clothes.
and maybe try to find something cute yet comfortable.
I think some people put more thought into the clothes they wear to the gym or to workout than they do the exercise itself.
But for me its a matter of just making a change. I am stuck in a rut.
They stopped making the Champion womens workout compression shorts that I loved.
one pair just went in the trash this week, after having almost no hold or thread left.
and the second pair will probably not last the rest of the year.
I have found nothing else that gives me the same control and comfort like those shorts.
Believe me, I have tried the alternatives.
I ordered a pair of the alternatives they came out with and they sit too low on my stomach, they are more of a yoga pant, I felt very little support and I sent them back.
I like cute, but to a point, then I need real support and compression and wicking ability.

As stated, I havent been back on the scale and dont intend to until Tuesday when I go back to the doctor.
I know the number I was last month and had hoped for a loss of 8 or 9 pounds.
Right now I am thinking it will be more like 4. Possibly and hopefully 5,
That isnt very good for a full month!!!!
I really just dont understand it.
I know I could do more.
Tonight I did weights and laying leg raises and worked on my abdominals.
But not a whole lot.
I know adding more gradually SHOULD eventually show results.
But for way too long I have felt like I am just digging my heels in and going nowhere.
But let me steer back away from the negative thoughts and feelings and just say I can only do what I am doing and at least I know I am eating healthy, mostly.
and i know I am in a better state of health than I was 3 years ago.

    I'm thinking good thoughts for you right now. I still have neuropathy in my left foot that is an after-effect from my accident a year ago. Mine isn't the cramps you experience, but the numbness and hyper-sensitivity are annoying, and so I can sympathize with what you're going through. I hope you're able to get to the root of the problem!

    Have a great week and best of luck with the doctor's appointment. I hope he is willing to see you. Hang in there, and keep sparking!

    All things considered, you're really doing well. Good for you!!! Working with weights is really important so keep at it. Being strong it what it's all about. Yeah, workout clothes can be a real pain. I'm not picky but finding something that fits can be problematic.

    Take care!!!
