Ending Up Resting, Today!

Friday, September 27, 2013

I did stay on track today with my food. No emotional eating! I had planned to work out in my yard, today. This morning when I woke up I was stiff with pain. My back, my right hip, and both my feet were writhing with pain. It took me 15 minutes to manage to sit up on the side of the bed. When I put my feet down my feet felt like they would explode. I slipped my foam bottom house shoes on in order to walk. I felt terrible all day. I decided I might need to take it easy. I have been exercising everyday for a while. I can straighten up now and my feet has calmed down a lot. My hip is not as painful, either. I hope I am doing better tomorrow. I want to be active. So I did read a lot of articles and worked on my page. I did cook. Hubbie helped me. I had injections in my feet Wednesday. I walked Thursday for a 1. 5 miles. I had put Volterian on my feet before leaving. Volertain is a prescription. It reduces inflammation and helps pain from inflammation. It really worked well. I was able to do the walking. When the medicine wore off my feet hurt something awful. So I put more Volterian on my feet before bedtime. I did it again this morning, when I saw they were still inflamed and hurting. They are doing much better this evening. In the morning I am starting the day with back and hip exercise I learned in therapy. I was so bad this morning I could not do them. I am looking for a better day tomorrow. Today, was not bad, however. I did eat what I planned on my tracker. I have a good attitude today, too. Feeling very good mentally and spiritually. I am thanking my GOD for HIS help. emoticon

    Best wishes to you in overcoming this pain. I really sympathize and sending prayers for your health and healing.

    Re exercise -- Have you considered trying a water aerobics class? I did that when my foot was injured, it helped a lot to keep the weight off my foot because the water was so buoyant. You do not have to know how to swim in the deep water class -- you wear flotation belts that hold you up as you run or bicycle or ski motion through water. I went to our local municipal park pool, so it was not expensive. Many heavier gals like me are nervous about putting on bathing suit in public, but I realized when I went there that the class was one of the few classes very obese people could do, and the pool was filled with all shapes and sizes of women (and a few guys too)
