ARGH - plantar fasciatis!
Saturday, January 25, 2014
Self-diagnosed, but I'm 99% sure that's what's going on.
My left foot started hurting back in August. I took ibuprofen and naproxen and tried to ignore it. My exercise has been sporadic since then, due mostly to other things, but the last time I ran for more than 5 minutes, I could barely walk the next day.
Guess what I did yesterday? Ran for more than 5 minutes. Guess what happened today? I can barely walk. Actually, I didn't even sleep well, because the pain in my foot kept waking me up. When I got up to go to the bathroom, I thought I might have to crawl there. :( Very, very painful. And it's not getting better. I've had the foot up for a couple of hours, alternating hot and cold, and taken ibuprofen. I guess I have to go to the doctor. BOO!
Also, my darling husband cooked me breakfast and cut up a freaking banana and put it on my plate. Do you know how many carbs are in a freaking banana? A BUNCH! Like, half of what I'm trying to eat a day. I don't even know how I'm going to make up for it. No, I didn't have to eat it, and yes, it tasted AWESOME. Like ice cream. I have been limiting myself to one fruit a day, and usually that's an apple or orange (although I've had some dried fruit, too). No sugar for almost 2 week. No flour, no bread, no pasta, no rice...
Anyway, I'm down for the count today. If I feel better in the next half an hour (doubtful), I'll try to go to BodyBalance...
