FFF 2.0 – 2-15

I am on and off the healthy eating wagon like – um, like I don’t know what. Like a merry-go-round? Like a – yeah, like this analogy just fell flat on its face. Never mind. But I’ve gone back to counting calories, recording them carefully in my Fitbit app.

I might have binged a little bit yesterday – Valentine’s Day and all, but even with that I wasn’t too over the top. Glucose levels are good. MP (My Partner) bought dinner for everyone, which was a nice treat.

AND I’ve been walking a lot more. My average step count was 5,132, but it was more consistently that level, rather than 2,000 or 3,000 most days and 10,000 one day.

I’m having trouble with my feet, and that actually makes walking a little bit more challenging than it would be otherwise. Between Morton’s Neuroma on one foot and plantar fascitis on the other foot, it’s not as much fun as it could be. But I hang in there. Do you know what one of the causes of plantar fascitis is? Obesity. No, I’m not kidding. It just seems unfair, doesn’t it? One more way that being overweight hinders losing weight. Ugh.

I’m thinking about trying bike riding, but I keep envisioning me sprawled on the concrete with a broken hip or something. Ok, broken wrist might be more likely. But that would really screw me in terms of work. And even be worse than being fat.

I have my final interview for this contract position I want – in about an hour and a half. Yikes. I think it will probably be ok, but it still makes me nervous. Of course. So keep your fingers crossed for me, ok?

I’m going to take a shower now. And put on makeup. See ya later…

  1. Hi Olivia,

    Oh, wishing you the very best for the interview. Good luck!

    Good on you with the step count, that is awesome 🙂 I need to cut out the sweet stuff, still eating too much of it.

    I’m sorry you are having trouble with your feet, that definitely wouldn’t help! I hadn’t heard of those conditions.

    Hugs

    1. Thanks for the good wishes for the interview – I think it went well!! I feel you on cutting out the sweet stuff. It is just tough.

      Yes, both foot issues kind of suck. 😦 I hope this is the last you hear of them!

  2. Wishing you all the best, olivia! At one time in my life, I was very overweight. I was also having trouble with my feet. I finally did get the weight off (over 50 pounds!), and the exercising I was doing was swimming (very low impact on the body) and a lot of stretching, which really helped my feet. I also purchased good shoes, which made a huge difference in my feet. Don’t give up….it is so worth it to enjoy better health! All my best ❤

  3. Glad the interview went well! Fingers crossed for you. For the Plantar issues, I have it too- like stepping on fire with needles being stabbed in my foot- but running is my cause- so I am a masochist for sure! I run through the pain so yes, I am crazy. I have a walking boot (wearing it right now) which I wear religiously when in the house and the Strassburg Sock every night (I know – sexy huh). I also have had acupuncture for my feet – it really helps. Can not stress the importance of strength training. Target the hip flexors and calves which definitely helps the feet. I practice Intermittent Fasting. Love it as it is really about Dely, not Deny and helps with so many other things. Glad you are using the My Fitness Pal- accountability is the key!
    Keep the walking up and I recommend the bike! I try to cross train a few days a week to give the legs a break from running.

    1. Ok, walking boot and Strassburg Sock are new concepts to me – I’ll have to check it out! Yeah, it can cause moments of really intense pain – good description. So many things to do to try to stay healthy – it’s exhausting!! Thanks for commenting though, it’s good to see you. And good to hear your helpful tips!

  4. ouch. i hope the interview went well I’m glad you had a nice V day. I am also trying to get back to swimming as it really is good for low / no impact exercise. and doing different things helps to move different sets of muscles so i just imagine that is better for my body than using the same muscle groups. eat often. but eat less (portion control) – that’s the rule that works for me. just sharing. you do what works for you. good shoes are also really important with PF. we see a lot of people at the clinic with pain that only gets worse cos they don’t pay attention to getting the proper footwear. Also – i sometimes have Veggie-only days during the week to make up for eating too much crap the days before. It makes me feel better (psychologically) too.

    and make up is always good 🙂

    1. Thanks for sharing your tips!! I’ll definitely keep that in mind about the shoes. A veggie only day is probably a good idea too!! Make-up – lol – is something that I rarely wear anymore. Unless it’s some kind of job event.
