WOW where has the time gone....it's going to be friday already, and I found out yesterday they are giving us off Monday so I am thrilled about that....
Things are going well, the usual struggle with food temptations and even more candy and junk at work, we all brought our left overs to work, to share.....yikes....but I did not do to bad,...
now working on the New Years menu.....crablegs and shrimp for New Years Eve, and Spaghetti, per request from Gary for New Years Day, it's one of his favorites, with what he calls real Spaghetti, the long thin ones...lol
As for the feet and legs, they have been bothering me, but I must admit I sort of know the reason, I upped the grade on the treadmill, and have been pushing it, that seems to bother the calf muscles and then the feet I have a condition can't remember the true medical name but the short and sweet of it I have a congenital foot malformation, it is inherited from my Dads side of the family and was told years ago it will get progressively worse as I age, gee guess I am aging...like who isn't....I have malformed bones in my feet and they are starting to grown up ward ,and thats the pain.....I want to pretend it's not true but have seen x-rays of my feet and I was shocked, that was about 25 years ago. so a lot has happened and well to be honest I never wore the inserts that were made for me....so I have only myself to blame....can I do anything about it now, I'm sure I can, but will I....the pain is not that bad yet so knowing me, stubborn and bull headed, I won't till it gets so bad I can't walk....
I do have exercises to do and using heat and ice helps....also tomorrow or this week end a new pair of walking shoes will be bought....The best fit I can find for these toes that are growing upward....
enough of my footsies.....I am a tough old bird and I will get through this , the snow is all but gone and the temps were in the low 60's and that alone helps my pain....

thanks for listening and being my sounding board....and mostly putting up with me and my issues...

HUGS

Kitt...

    Plantar Facitis killed many exercise programs of mine in the last 10 years until I went to a store called "Goodfeet" 13 months ago and got fitted that day with inserts. Within a month, I found SP and have walked/run 800 miles in 2011 without foot pain. Best $500 I ever spent!

Get help now!

    I can relate with the foot issues, Kitt -- my old foot bones weren't happy at all with the races I did this past year, so I had to curtail the walking. That's okay because I prefer riding my bike anyway. Hope you have a wonderful long weekend!!!!!

Blessed Christmas

Monday, December 26, 2011

We had a wonderful Christmas..I did well with my eating and feel really good about that..
I did eat ham, it was lean but loaded with sodium, so ankles and feet a bit puffy but should be fine in a day or so....

I had today off from work so that made it even nicer, relaxing and don a bit of laundry, vacced the house again and getting food ready for the week
Made my hard cooked eggs I share with Leah, the yolks really make her coat look beautiful, I give her cod liver oil as well.... I made up a huge batch of steel cut oats fro my breakfasts, and cleaning veggies so they are ready fro my lunches as well, have a lot of chicken breast left in the freezer too. so seems I'm set for the week....my plan for sucess...

We are planning a sea food feast fro new Years eve, we don't go any more, to many drunks and things have gotten so over the top with price for what you get....so we are happy to be home, in our warm safe house...We cook together and that is always nice....

Last night was so much fun we listen to Christmas music while we ate dinner then enjoyed a Faith Hill concert on a channel we did not know we got....The fondue dinner was great too on Christmas eve, so all seem right in my corner of the world, hope yours is too

Happy New Year to everyone.

Kitt

    Sounds great, Kitt! I did pretty good too. I also had ham, which I love and only have on the major holidays. I was a little swollen, but not as much as in the past. Have a great evening!

Change of plans did not go well

Saturday, December 24, 2011

Last night because unforeseen changes, we had an early dinner at the Black Eye Pea...a local restaurant...(our plan was to go to a fancy place with healthy made foods)..but when we got there it was closed...not sure why) so we both decided to have angus burgers, I think they were lean meat...but the side dish was onion rings, I did not want to make a big deal about the whole thing as I knew Gary was feeling really bad about the situation...and heck one greasy meal won't kill me, and hey its Christmas, right......well late last night I was up, on my hurting tummy, feeling very sick...not sure what to do, so i took a tums, tried to get back to sleep but up at 4am, no energy to exercise and still having a huge belly ache....is it possible that one greasy meal could cause me so much problems.....guess so...so lessened learned.....drinking hot tea and hoping this will pass, no thoughts of eating for today so far, we do have a fondue dinner planned....oh brother not sure what I might have, I know what not to have......

Well it was a fun night while it lasted, we enjoyed friends and getting together....and we will again today...

Wishing you all a healthy and Merry Christmas......

in my photo gallery I have posted several years of me at Christmas, still trying to get this years in there....gee I have changed a lot over the last 6 christmas's....you go check it out and let me know.


Merriest of Christmas's...

    Those pictures are amazing. The difference from beginning to end is STUNNING. (I went and looked right after reading the post, before I commented.

It is funny how that one meal really gave you "what for". It's a real point to consider before giving in to a "bad meal". Sorry it had such a horrible effect on you, but maybe it was a good thing. You won't be doing that again soon. haha

    Sorry to hear you were ill last night, Kitt. Hope you're better now. It probably was your body rejecting the greasy food that it's not used to. I've had that happen before. Take care!

    My thoughts are you eat so clean .. healthy.. that the greasey meal was just ejected by your stomach--
Hope you feel better --do you have green tea? try that...

have a great time with family tonight

    Hmm - sorry about that. Hope you feel better soon. Most places will often substitute an equal side with no problems. I often ask for coleslaw instead of french fries, which I view as a healthier choice. Someone told me recently, if you don't ask, the answer is always no.
