Oh dang the holiday is over

I cant believe I haven't posted for a couple of days. Lets start with Sunday, I tried out my new shoes at the gym. I did the treadmill for just 1 mile. Seemed still a little sore but ok. I then went to the bike and did a couple of miles. It sure hurts my arse on that thing. But it didnt hurt my heel.  I then did the weight machines, I still dont know what they are called. I call the ones I use as the arm thingies.There are 3 that I use.

Monday, yippe was holiday. I went to the gym, this time I did the bike first and I did 3 miles. Again, my arse and this time my back kinda ached. But it wasnt that bad. Then I did the treadmill. This time I did 1.5 miles. Maybe I shouldn't have cause my heel ached later on big time. But, when I am at the gym, I seem obsessed with working out till I sweat. I think I am going to try the elliptical. I have always been intimidated by this machine. I dont know why, but it looks really hard. But, I think it is easier on my heel than the treadmill. Things went well on the diet. I weigh in tonight. I think I forgot to mention that I had gained 2 lbs, at the last weigh in. It was the day after Brandy died and the day TOM came. But, sadly I didn't care. I was still grieving. But I do care today. I better have lost those 2lbs plus more. I have never gained weight on this diet so I think if I wasn't so sad I would have been pissed. But, it was my fault I know when I came home from the vet , I said I'm not hungry when husband asked what I wanted for dinner. Then I ate and ate and ate. Thank God the xanax took effect and I fell asleep. Of course on the other side of the coin, while walking at lunch, I pushed myself so hard due to not even paying attention, just crying over my dog. So maybe that and bad shoes is what hurt my heel. But, the great thing is that even though my heel hurts the gym has so many different options to work out on. So it forces me to move out of my comfort zone(treadmill)  and use the scary equipment LOL. This will be my last time at these classes for about a month because the surgery is next week. So, I want to go out with a bang. Wish me luck!

I DO wish you luck! And blessings for the surgery and healthjourney!

YOu'll do well with the Brooks. EXCELLENT shoes for folks with heel/foot issues. I have reoccuring plantar fasciitis, and Brooks were a footsaver. I have a messed up right ankle and bad knees...you feel the difference with the proper footwear.

Enjoy them!

And thank you for the birthday wishes...
