As recently as 3 months ago, I had finally gotten mediocre at balancing my LIFE. But, the nagging pain in my foot was becoming more noticeable, And I didn't want to stop exercising, I was feeling so good in my clothes! So off to ZUMBA & SPINNING I went, and the Treadmill and weights and walking. But there came a day when the just walking around the house doing housework became so painful I just had to stop doing what I had taken for granted. After researching what I think I have, I followed the advice given for relief which includes staying off my foot. I can only get to gym if my husband is home to be with the kids. And since that is sporadic at best, I got angry that my foot wasn't allowing me to go even when I could go. Of course what followed was emotional eating trying to comfort the thoughts of what would happened with my foot. Will I never be able to exercise again!? Are they going to suggest surgery!? I was mentally paralyzed by the fear that I wouldn't be able to lose weight, and I would get fatter, my husband won't love me, my kids embarrassed by me. But thanks to SPARK, my SPARK Team, and reading other blogs, I'm going to get over this....1 small step at at time. I brought my clothes with me today. I will change into them after work. I will walk to the Wellness Center, and I'm getting in some exercise.......for me!
