This week was chaos but I reached a milestone

Sunday, October 04, 2015

This week was an example of how unexpected things in life can throw me off track. I can't believe I hurt my foot. I've been so careful this time around to do things gradually and ease into everything. It's taken me three months to work up to walking for an hour. Pretty much I'm an idiot. lol. I laced my shoe way too tight. Those shoes are already kind of too tight anyway. The top of my left foot was completely bruised. It hurt so much Monday night I couldn't even sleep. I stayed off it all day Tuesday and took it easy most of Wednesday. It seems to be ok now but that and my new earlier work schedule made me disorganized this week because I was just too tired to stay on top of anything. That means I didn't plan my meals or snacks very well. That always leads to a stop at the drive-thru. I also didn't track a darn thing I ate for most of the week. So I've retired those shoes and have learned to tie my shoes right. I also got in a good, long nap today. I feel ten times better and worked out hard at the gym. It's not all bad news though. I have officially lost 20 pounds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I also somehow still managed to finish 11th this week in the FitBit challenge at work. Pretty good considering two of the seven days I didn't walk much. I'm hoping to start off this week strong.

    Congrats on the 20 lb. loss!!! emoticon

    It is hard when things happen and reorganizing needs to be done, especially after you have a set routine-you can do it though!!

    Sounds like this week got off on the wrong foot, but congratulation on your 20 pounds (very impressive) and getting back on track! Now the shoe's on the other foot! Just remember to toe the line and not let the other shoe drop.

    I hope you continue to heel nicely.

    Sock it to 'em.

    Ok, I think I'm out of foot/shoe puns for now.

    I hate when shoes end up hurting my feet. They're meant to protect, but the littlest thing and they turn against you. I'm glad you're feeling better now, and no long term harm done. Congrats on your milestone!

    We share a milestone... As of today I have lost 20 lbs also!!
    I had to start lacing my shoes differently and it took all the pressure off the top of my feet. Instead of x's they are straight lines(does that make sense?). Congratulations!!!! emoticon emoticon
