Good News & Bad News

Sunday, July 28, 2013

You want the good or the bad first?

Good to know. I'm telling you the bad news first, anyway.

So a few days ago, I went running, and I must have run on it funny, cause my right foot was sore when I got home. The next day, It was a little more sore, so I tried not to put too much weight on it while I walked throughout the day.
Yesterday, it hurt a little bit more, so I thought "Maybe I just need to use it normally, and the soreness will go away." I figured I'd just pulled a muscle, so I stretched it, and went for a 5 mile run.


I could barely walk on my foot this morning, so for the first time, I gave my foot a decent inspection...Oh. It's swollen. Woops. So I've been taking it easy today. I used a foot spa thingy of my moms...sooo nice! I filled this thing with water, and it vibrates and makes bubbles it felt SO good! Then I put my feet up and iced my swollen one. And took a 3 hour nap. The only bummer is that now I'm afraid to go running on it :( Any ideas for me to get some good cardio in without putting a whole lot of pressure on my foot?

The good news is that I'm back down to this year's low, 169! WOO! So my weight ticker is accurate again, haha. I will *NOT* see anything in the 170s again on that scale.

Other than that, things are going well. I've been staying on track, eating well, exercising regularly and pushing myself. Hope you're all having a WONDERFUL day! emoticon

    oh gracious! I hate that you've injured your foot. Maybe you could try some water aerobics...its a low impact workout so that may help! Congrats on reaching your lowest weight! :)

    Nice job!

Can you find a less damaging form of exercise until it gets better? Swimming, maybe?
