**Days 481 - 483**

Since Tuesday I've been sitting around nursing my sore foot, and gaining weight.  Weight today:
That's 1.5 pounds gained, and I have no excuse.  I mean, just because I can't exercise doesn't mean I can't lose weight, but I was feeling down because I couldn't exercise, so I was doing some emotional eating.  Again, that's no excuse - I'm just being honest about the bad choices I made.

I went to the doctor today, had my foot x-rayed , and, the good news is, I don't have a fracture, or anything like that, but, as I suspected, I do have Plantar Fasciitis, and I, also, have two heel bone spurs.  So, this will be my new bed buddy for awhile:
I don't know how I'm going to sleep, comfortably, with this thing on, but I'll give it a try.  It's suppose to allow stretching of my calf and plantar fascia, which will, hopefully, minimize stress on the inflamed area of my foot.  I'm really hoping it will help with the awful pain I have first thing in the morning. 

Thankfully, I can start exercising again, but I MUST ice my foot after exercising, and, also, do some stretching exercising for my foot.  I still have pain, so I'm going to continue to rest my foot over the weekend, and get back to exercising on Monday.  So, that's my plan!  

Have a great weekend!


  1. You've had this on a few days now, how's sleeping been? I honestly wouldn't know how I'd cope with it!

    1. Hi, Tim! It seems to be helping a little, which is better than nothing! Thanks for asking! :)
