Boy did I make some silly mistakes yesterday.
To start it off I woke up and tried to focus on the alarm clock without my glasses.
I thought it said 5:05 so got up, turned on the coffee and got on the computer. about 30minutes later my DH got up & went to the bathroom. On his way back he looked at me and said he was going back to bed. Well I looked at the clock and was shocked to discover it was only 2am. WHAT!!!! Boy did I look at the clock wrong. So I turned off the computer and the coffee and crawled back in bed. Took me an hour to go back to sleep.(thank God I didn't have a cup of coffee yet) Anyway I woke back up at 5:20 and couldn't go back to sleep.
After getting the family up & going we got off to Dothan for a day of Christmas shopping. I had a great time and got a lot of walking in. DD's pedometer read over 11,000 steps and I went in more stores than she did so know I did more.
(no matter what I try I can't get pedometers to work on me)
We went to Wendy's for Lunch. I was good and ate 1/2 a Chicken Salad (without cheese) and half a baked potato. My DD ate the other half. Sharing is a great way to cut calories.
We didn't get home until after 3pm.
Then it hit me... I was so tired, my ankles were swollen, my joints were aching, and the bone spur on my rt. heel was killing me.
I wanted to exercise but every time I tried to stand up to do any my heal started hurting again. So only did a little arm & leg stretches while seated. Boy did I pay the price for not checking the clock better and being on my feet so long.
I slept a little better last night, heel is still hurting so will try to stay off of it this morning. (have to take MIL to store this afternoon). I have an appointment with the Dr. on Tuesday and will talk to him about the pain.
I hate not being able to exercise like I want to. I won't lie it gets discouraging.
