Back to work after 1 day off for flu

Thursday, April 05, 2012

I think I ate something that didn't agree with me and couldn't sleep on Tuesday night. Called in sick yesterday morning.

Thank goodness I am feeling much better. I think it is related to the elimination diet I am (eliminating 9 allergens). I found something else I am allergic to and am not sure what it is. I think it was in the coating of the cajun fries from Popeyes. (I most certainly did not eat any fried chicken,) Will try to find out what they put on their fries as it certainly did not agree with me.....

Trying to get serving sizes smaller. Shared my turkey burger with my cat this morning. put half of tomato with breakfast and half with lunch and likewise my sweet red pepper.

Trying to mix it up a bit and hope that will get me off this plateau.... emoticon

Finally figured out how to get up off the floor...took 2 years after 2nd knee replacement!!!

Sunday, April 01, 2012

I can finally kneel a little longer on my knees. I got on the floor for a flexibility test and got on my knees and "walked myself" into an upright position with my hands. I was so amazed...I have done it several times since to make sure I don't forget how I did it. My 2nd knee replacement was 2 years ago and it took this long for me to be able to do this on my own without something to grab onto.

I CONSIDER THIS A MAJOR ACCOMPLISHMENT.... emoticon

Found some shoes that don't make my feet hurt...but...ouch--the price!

Sunday, April 01, 2012

I ended up with size 11D which is the size I wore when I was 50 lb heavier. Apparently I am carrying a lot of weight in my feet. But the shoes feel like a dream for only....wait for it...$175. But my feet are happy once again. Also ordered a pair of the athletic shoes by the same manufacturer. They are made in Switzerland...They are called Xelero. I perhaps I can walk fast with these on? emoticon

Can't eat until after cholesterol blood test....then shoe shopping...

Saturday, March 31, 2012

First thing I will do when I am done with my physical assessment at the gym is get some "joe" and eat a non-gluten bar.

I did take my prescriptions and vitamins with a sip of water except for the fish oil.

I had to set my alarm for 7:00 this morning or I would still be "sawing wood."

After the gym, I need to shop for some new cross trainer shoes. My 2 pair of Nikis are worn out and my feet have been killing me lately. I went to a regular shoe store and nothing fit so am going to a store that specializes in orthopedic and hard to fit feet. I will be surprised if I can get anything for under $100. I do have my custom orthotics which were ordered by my foot orthopedic specialist a coiuple of years ago. She said they should last a long time and I hope they are not the reason my feet have hurt lately. She diagnosed accessory naviculars in both feet (an extra bone in the arch area). I also have plantar fasciitis which hasn't bothered me until recently. I hope the new shoes help my foot pain. If not, I will have to go see the foot orthopedic doctor again.

The problem I had at the shoe store is that I have a medium forefoot but extra narrow heels. I tried on sizes 11 women (their largest size, but those seemed tight but that is the size I have that wore out (maybe they stretched). I also tried mens size 10 but they were way too big in the heels. Hope I find something today as I just hate having painful feet. It also affects my knees and back when I walk differently because of painful feet. emoticon
