I loved hearing all about your numbers after my random post. I'm still catching up on commenting on your blogs so please hang in there. I really hate it when people don't respond so I'm doing my best to visit all of you.
After work on Monday I paid another visit to my geriatric doctor and my foot is not as great as I thought it was. It also ended in being pitched $750 custom orthotics. Um...don't Manolos and Jimmy Choos cost around that much?? I'm doing some research to see if I really need these things or if I can hobble around for a bit longer. I work in the pharma industry and I know a sales pitch when I see one but I'm still confused. I think I may have been suckered into the idea though. Being an adult is fun, right? Anyhoo, puppy and I took a walk in the open space once I finished working from home a bit more.
Moving on...I've been eating stuff like salads and veggies. I know it's not a big deal since the other 3,000 blogs you read have pages and pages of veggies but I have found myself in a slump and I'm finally coming out of it. Along with not posting regularly I allowed myself to get a bit lazy and only ate carrots and snap peas for my veggie intake for what felt like weeks. Boooooring!
Also helping me balance things out this week is getting to sleep on time so I can get to work earlier and get shiz done. I've received a bit of a promotion and my workload is out of control lately so getting in before the email gets scary has helped me get some focused time in. I pack my lunch, make breakfast, and pick my clothes the night before when I leave early so that I don't wake the whole house and actually make my train.
Tonight's breakfast prep included waffles. I love my waffle maker so very much. I'm still working on getting the shape right ;)
Do you have any experience with orthotics (fancy, I know). Would you get them if they would help you walk/run pain-free?
