my boy, my foot, my date

Saturday, February 06, 2010

sorry I missed you all yesterday. I had the day off from school so I decided to go and help out in my aunts 5th grade classroom. It was a rainy day here so they all had cabin fever. but still, it was so much fun. And it was fantastic to connect with my aunt again. I got to tell her all about the boy and she had about the same reaction to his picture that every one else has had lol. We decided that her and my uncle and the boy and I should all go salsa dancing and to dinner together when I want them to meet him. It'll be fun.
After school, we went shopping and found me the CUTEST top to wear to superbowl. His roommate ended up not wanting to throw the party at THEIR house so we are going around to 2 different parties because he wants to make sure i meet ALL of his friends. I'm so excited!
Tonight he has invited me to his place and he is going to be cooking me dinner then we are going to watch a movie. Perfect rainy weather date I think!
My foot. Okay I have no clue what I did to it but it is still sore. Its not swollen, its not black and blue, it looks totally normal its just sore. It feels better when I have shoes on, especially wedges which I think is so strange. I CANT go to the doctor because I dont have insurance right now. So unless it gets to the point where it is swelling up or bruised I'm just going to be careful with it. I cant really do much else.
My weigh in friday morning was exciting. I am officially 10 pounds away from my goal weight. I actually see myself hitting my goal as a true reality now!! I'm really going to have to be watching every bite because I cant exercise...yikes! Anyway, have a FABULOUS saturday and I will report back about tonights date!!

    My podiatrist has told me wedges are the most comfortable shoes for most women's feet, even more so than flat which tend to put pressure on the arch of the foot... I hope it feels better soon and doesn't get worse and that your date went well!

    Ok - I'm with Pagona on saying "no" ... I'm not trying to preach but this is date #3 and it's dinner at his house. You know what they say about the third date ... :-)

    As for your foot. When I was training for the 39 mile Avon Walk for Breast Cancer I had the same thing happen a few weeks before the walk and it was awful. At first I thought I had a stress fracture and I did go to the doctor and they xray'd it but a stress fracture is so small that it's almost impossible to see on an xray. My foot also didn't hurt as bad when I wore shoes with a heel. Weird! During the Avon walk I was still having severe foot pain - all 39 miles - but I stopped at the medic tents several times and they taped it up and one doctor told me it was tendonitis. So ... they told me to take Aleve ever day, twice a day, for like two weeks. You have to be careful because Aleve can be hard on your stomach but the tendons are inflamed and Aleve helps the inflamation so take it every day even if your foot stops hurting. The second thing is that they told me to take a golf ball and rub the bottom of my foot (feet) over it, hard enough so that you can feel it. It kind of hurts, and it's supposed to, but it's loosening up those tendons. Seriously - I did this remedy for a couple of weeks and my feet have been good ever since. Unfortunately, I didn't learn all this until after I walked 39 miles IN PAIN!!!! Good luck.
