Thu, 5 Jul 2012 12:40:24 EST Plantar Fasciitis - Advice? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4954793 The other day I went to my Dr. because I've been having some joint pain and some foot pain. Doc says the foot pain is plantar fasciitis, her advice is that I wear shoes with good heal support (no sandals and my reebox youflex have to go :( ), foot exercise and stretching and possibly night splints if things don't improve after a couple of weeks. I'm also supposed to stay off of my feet as much as possible. My problem is staying off my feet, I need to exercise. For the past month and a half I ... Wed, 4 Jul 2012 09:26:28 EST More Things That Have Helped Me and Maybe You Too http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4951597 In my last blog I covered a few things that have helped me take off about half of my goal weight so far (42 lbs), e.g.,chopsticks, pop, portion control etc., and there is more. <BR> <BR> Here's a good one! <BR> <BR> *Snacking*~ <BR> First of all when I think about snacking, I think of sitting in front of the T.V. or computer screen and mindlessly reaching for a handful of popcorn or chips. Mindlessly is not good, snacking is fine as long as your brain knows what's going on. I won't sit here... Mon, 2 Jul 2012 09:44:40 EST Things That Have Helped Me and Maybe You Too. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4946020 Reminding myself of the things that have helped me get this far in my weight loss is a great way to insure that I continue to do things that get me even further. Everyone has different weight issues, these are mine. I have P.C.O.S. which I've heard described as a double edged sword. It makes it very easy to gain weight and very difficult to take it off. For me I feel like my weight loss has taken so long and I've worked very hard for it and it's always been that way for me. Another is growin... Thu, 28 Jun 2012 10:29:59 EST Too Busy To Take Care of Myself...I Call B.S.! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4943088 I'm not gonna lie I haven't been doing the wonderful job of taking care of myself that I know I can. I haven't been tracking my food properly so, I'm sure there are some bad days that have gone unnoticed or more likely ignored. Exercise? What's that? No I have been exercising but not nearly the way I should be. I have been busy, I really have! It's not a good excuse, I should be saying NO when I need time for me and others are being demanding. This has to change, I've got to get back to me. I... Tue, 26 Jun 2012 11:45:25 EST Birthday Changes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4867062 Today is my birthday. Every year on my birthday I have a big dinner, eat cake and ice cream, then feel like garbage because I couldn't control myself. Today was different. Today, I put on my workout clothes before I took my kids to school, after I went on a bike ride. A nice sweaty bike ride. Then I came home and cleaned my house instead of watching T.V. or playing on the computer. Today, I got dressed up (and looked hot!) and went out to dinner with my husband. I ate my favorite yummy enchil... Fri, 4 May 2012 23:45:41 EST
