Now, how does something foreign get into my foot? It must be a tooth or maybe a tiny ear drum, or maybe even a toe (wouldn't that be ironic?). A friend of mine suggested it could be a bug, but I don't even want to think about that, so I can't wait for my appointment on the 30th. Although, with as much thought as I've been putting into this, I may end up being a little disappointed. My mother always tells me I make things too complicated. She may have a point every once and a while.
So my foot pain may not be just because of my weight. Something that I can blame on something else. Hallelujah!! When you're big, most things get blamed on your weight and honestly, most of the time rightly so. This extra weight really does cause a whole lot of trouble. I'm feeling lucky that my blood work came back pretty clean. I've just got to work on getting my triglycerides down a bit. Other than that and the tiny twin parts in my foot, I'm getting there. I'm nervous about some possible exploratory surgery and how that will affect my exercising - just as I'm getting to really like the way I feel. My lifeguard friend at the Y told me he can tell that my range of motion and my strength is much better (he can tell all that from me climbing out of the pool, thank you very much). It's nice when others notice.
This week I'm working on eating less carbs, even more vegetables and less sugar. Luckily, the farmers markets have started here locally on Wednesdays and Saturdays. There are a lot of options. I love summer food! But then, I love Fall, Winter, and Spring food too. Sigh.
Have a great week!
