Push on-there's nothing to fear but fear itself!

Monday, May 18, 2009

It has been decided that my arch has not fallen, but that I am overexerting my poor foot muscles...so while I have not changed by exercise plan I am doing better changing the way I perform the activities...some standup exercises have been switched so I am sitting or lying down and so far my recovery is coming along. So nothing to fear, my new routine has not taken me out of the race, just changed my notion of what I need to do to reach the goal line, become healthy and strong and stay there....so I'm pushing on!

  


Be the master of your time!

Tuesday, May 12, 2009

While it may seem like I'm not setting a good example of mastering time, I've tried twice to fall asleep and just tossed and turned, so I'm putting the time to good use...drinking water and tea instead of grabbing munchies... and with the reduced exercise schedule to help my foot heal and stay well I'll still be able to fit everything in. That will work!

    Good for you. And you may want to look into exercises you can do that won't put stress on your feet. One that I do sometimes is lay on my back and move my legs as if I were pedaling a bicycle. That works your legs, abs, lower back, AND gives you a nice cardio workout.

    YAY for you! It's hard not to start munching when you're in pain and you're unable to sleep. Stay positive and hope you're drinking soothing tea emoticon

Find the balance!

Monday, May 11, 2009

My foot has started hurting again...at first I thought perhaps my arch was falling, but that didn't explain when it went away after pampering. A friend saw me researching the topic of falling arches and noted that perhaps I was simply overexercising that area (I mean really how many things do we do that does not involve the foot in some way). Today I came across an article I read a long time ago, that addressed overexercising (I've included the link below), and put into place a modification of my exercise schedule. Let's see if this helps in thelong run!
