Bad news from the doctor
Monday, July 19, 2010
I have had may problems with my feet for years. It makes it very difficult to stay physically fit when every step you take is painful. I went through most of last summer in a cam walker and it wasn't until I got new orthodics with a spot cut out for that problem bone at the beginning of this year that I could start walking again.
I started SP in February and signed up for various exercise classes over the last few months. In one of those classes we were doing a lot of intense cardio and I must have injured my heel. It has been very painful for weeks now. I decided to visit the Podiatrist again kind of hoping he good quick fix it. Not so... he wants me to take it easy to let it heal.
Since I just started a couple of new classes over the last couple of weeks I want to finish those out. I will also have a difficult time not walking at lunch. The walks help with the stress of the day, which in turns helps with the health and stress eating.
I need my fun exercise and I need my stress relief walks. This is one of those times that pisses me off. You are damned if you do and damned if you don't. This is how I got so far into this unhealthy weight mess and I don't want to jeopardize the success I have made.
I know I can find alternatives, but I'm dedicated to what I'm doing now and enjoying it. I wish I could just have feet that didn't cause so many issues.
