Day 285   My Struggle……

I woke up today feeling like I had been beaten in my sleep. I got up limping through the house. Not a pretty picture. I put on my foot sleeves and the ones for my knees and started cleaning. It took about an hour and I started feeling some relief.

I knew if I kept going I would feel better. I start off with aches, pains, and stiffness then by evening I’m feeling normal. This is almost a everyday thing. Main thing is I don’t give up.

I’ve ate very good today! I had a salad for lunch, a hamburger patty by itself for dinner, and I made protein powder brownies. I have everything in the green, and I still have calories left for a snack. I’m thinking popcorn, or something else low in fat. I had avocado and eggs in my salad and after eating the hamburger patty, I don’t have many fat grams left. My goal is not to go over the next three weeks.

I have in almost 15,000 steps with 89 active minutes. I had Zumba tonight and I practiced some before leaving. 

Hope you had a great day!

Day 139  My Struggle…….

So last night when I posted I only had my steps I needed in (10,000). I was watching TV and decided to get a few more steps in. Before bed I managed to get in 21,500 steps with 155 active minutes. 

This morning I felt it too. Between the rain and walking so much I got up limping. I have trouble with my ankle sometimes when I walk too much. I got up and put my tennis shoes on and danced to the eighties. I just keep on going because if I get moving around my pain subsides a lot. 

I have house shoes (tennis shoes for indoors). I should have knew better to try to get in more steps last night without wearing shoes. We don’t wear shoes in the house so when I get a lot of steps in barefoot it’s not good for my ankle. I have a pair of Asics I wear in the house that helps my feet. I have supination in my feet ,so I have a pair for supination. They really are worth the money for me. I never paid that much for shoes till a couple years ago (still got them on sale).  I really don’t want to lose being able to walk because I didn’t take care of my feet. I also invested in these sleeves for my ankles. I don’t know why I’m telling you all this except to let you know no matter how much pain I’m in I don’t give up, and take care of your feet!

So today I got in my regular steps with 50 active minutes. I would have had more but I went to town and got groceries.

My eating has been good today. We had fish for dinner. I had to fry my husbands but mine was baked. I only did one hush puppy and a Tablespoon of coleslaw. I used a salad plate so that is why my plate looks full in my blog photo. 

So that’s how I did on my diet/exercise today.

How was your day?
