Guess who has an acute case of plantar fasciitis in their left foot. I do.... Fun, huh? I've been told, no more flip flops, no bare feet, and make sure I wear shoes with good arch support. I'm thinking I'll have lots of time to recover before the half and I can still go walk and do the elliptical so I'm not worried.
On a more positive note...
My name is Cathy and I'm a habitual weigher. A week ago I weighed myself and I was 194.6 and yesterday and today I weighed and I am 190.4...nice!!! I love when water weight falls off and gives you that nice weight loss. Now...don't get all worried thinking I'm trying to lose weight while pregnant...this is not the case. I love to eat and boy do I eat! I'm just glad that I'm not that close to 200 this early in the game. I just know the more weight I gain the harder it is for me later in the pregnancy. My IT band starts flaring up, my feet hurt from all the weight, and my pelvic muscles/joints/whatever get all out of whack and hurt like a mother when I try to lift my leg to put pants on...I just don't want that happening again. So, I'm hoping that with continuing running/walking/ellipticalling I can take control of this weight gain, before it gets out of hand.
Today I got some inserts so, I'm planning on doing my 5 miles around the lake. Lets hope the inserts help with the ache in my foot.
