Bum foot

Monday, April 06, 2009

About a month ago, I found out I have plantar fasciitis, which I can't even pronounce. My poor foot. Today, the dr. gave me a cortizone shot. I'm still losing weight without full workouts, but still, I look longingly at the treadmills. My regular physician gave me a June deadline to lose more and improve my cholestorol levels, so I'm eager to get back to my gym workouts. I just need to take it easy to get my foot to heal (get it!).

    Sorry about your foot. I hope the cortizone shot helps. Being in pain and unable to work, etc is difficult while trying to lose weight.

Three of my friends have the same thing and can not pronounce it either. It is pronounced like Fash itis. Itis means inflammation. Losing weight is the remedy along with resting, elevating and icing the foot, taking anti inflammatory drugs, and stretching the foot when you get out of bed, up from sitting, etc and decreasing the amount of exercise you do until the foot feels better. Two of my friends recovered.

I have faith that you will decrease your weight and cholesterol.

    Sorry to hear about your foot...hope it gets better soon! Lucky you, to lose weight without full workouts!!!!!

A helpful hint I got from Jillian Michaels..."boxing" your arms quickly can be aerobic enough when you have a foot injury.
