I’m still dealing with heel pain, so I’ve decided to really rest my foot and give myself a break. I’m disappointed, but when I started this trek I told myself – first and foremost – I was not going to punish myself. I have stopped exercising, but have not gone back to eating food that is generally bad for the population. I’m still not eating carbs or sugar, but I may re-introduce brown rice into my diet. I’ve heard it’s bad to completely cut out carbs for an extended period of time.
My weight keeps fluctuating up and down about 2 pounds, but is otherwise steady.
So, I wait.
The good news is I’ve re-connected with the stable where I had signed up to lease a horse before. They have a new trainer who said she could teach me English lessons, so I’m really looking forward to that. Considering you mount a horse with your left foot (my bad foot), I have to make sure I’m okay before I start riding again. But, it’s giving me something wonderful to look forward to.
I will update again when things start moving again. Literally and figuratively.
One thought on “Taking a break.”
But still trending down according to your graph – patience and healthy eating. Exercise alone won’t do it so don’t beat yourself up about it. But – make sure you continue to do weights and swim if you can.
