The problem with plantar fasciitis, it's really hard to get ride of it. I have the same issue on my left foot and it won't go away and I won't do the surgery for it. (No money)
I would suggest looking into getting hard inserts for your workout shoes and soft heal ones for everyday shoes. That will help lessen the impact on the area and will gradually lessen the pain. You need to take care of your feet even when you are not working out. :)
As for the workouts....pretty much anything that keeps you on your feet is going to hurt it. I know it's bad but I just workout through that pain. In the beginning when its so painful it's hard to walk I don't do cardio, and I let my foot rest a little. I work on strengthening my calf muscles (helps with plantar fasciitis), yoga, Pilates or core workouts. I would suggest you try chair workouts, elliptical if it doesn't give you pain (for some it does, it didn't with me), or water aerobics.
Good Luck and I hope you find something that works!
