Well I just got back from the Foot Specialist and I have PLANTAR FASCIITIS. Just what I expected. See my earlier blog. He said I need MAJOR physical therapy. I start Monday morning at 7:40. He is optimistic that I will NOT need surgery (maybe a cast but not sure til I see the PT). Says its because I don't no how to walk correctly. GO FIGURE! He loved my new shoes though...LOL Weighed in this morning and I stayed the same. I am nervous about my weight loss now that I have injured my foot. But the doctor told me I can still ride my exercise bike just not the tread mill. So that makes me happier.
I just need to stay as active as my pain level will allow me to be. At least it isn't a MS thing...Hurray for freakin me!
After I got back from my Thursday night WW meeting I watched Survivor and the whole time I was thinking about how the doctor said I could ride my exercise bike. So you guessed it...after the show I rode for 1 hour and 12 minutes. I play my Zune while I exercise. And I have missed riding all week so I especially enjoyed the music tonight. The last few minutes I put on American Pie...What a great song to exercise to. Starts out slow (warm up) and then goes all out and finally the slow part at the end (cool down). And I can't ride without listening to my Kid Rock "All Summer long"...But mostly I love my country music. I put it on loud and sing right along with it. I can't carry a tone in a bucket either. Good thing it is at my house and not at a gym...
Missed a couple of my WW members tonight and I am hoping they are doing ok. I went with a big ice pack strapped to my foot. Nothing will keep me from my meetings. I learn SO much from them. I love our instructor and all the comments that others have. I am inspired by so many people there that it keeps me in check. It helps me realize that when I have bad weeks I AM NOT ALONE!
Cheers and here's to happy biking this week!
