About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Plantar Fascilitis

For years I lived in Keds. A new pair of white canvas Keds was perfect with so many things. Then, I graduated to K Swiss in college. Do they even still make those? I saw a pair on someone during my metro commute and I was in love. Well today I graduated to New Balance. The reason? I'm old and in pain. Yes, I went at it too hard during my nightly walks. Sad, I know. Go ahead and have a little giggle. It all started a few weeks ago when the bottom of my foot started to hurt. Well, being a Mom I just kept going. After all- No pain, no gain. So now I have heel pain (When I bend over it feels like someone is ripping the skin off my heel. Nice.) and my new friends are an ice pack and stretching exercises. Exercise is evil.

OH my goodness! I just went to the doctor today and he told me that is what I have too! I knew running would be bad for me. Evil exercise! Hope yours feels better soon!

I love my New Balance shoes! They are a really cool company & I think their shoes are pretty stylish. Gotta take care of those feet, I hope they feel better soon. Hugs my friend.

I just KNEW exercise was BAD for you!!!!....lol. Hope your feet feel better soon. My feet hurt if I wear my flops too much. It is time for me to get a new pair of tennis shoes too. I love New Balance and have had them several times.

Hi Lori
So sorry you are in pain with your feet. Those New Balance shoes look so comfy. I really need to exercise more - I would love to join you when your nightly walks resume!
Hoping your ice pack does the trick. A friend of mine had to roll her foot on a cold bottle of water when she had that problem.

Exercise is so so evil! I've been trying to get back in the groove, but haven't been very committed. I LOVE my New Balance! My hubby has that plantar fascilitis too...he has really flat feet too which adds to the pain, and he wears New Balance. He loves them.

Hope you're having a great week!♥

Hi Lori, Sorry to hear that you're hurting. I had trouble with this same thing in the past. I still have flare-ups every once in a while too...What helped me the most is the stretching exercises that my doctor told me to do. I hope you are all doing well. I've been SO busy that I've not been getting on the computer at all. I've been thinking about you though...I do hope you are happy and healthy...
Hugs!!! Jerelene

Hey Lori, those are some cool rocking shoes! Who knew we could get shoes that actually can go with our different outfits! I have a few pairs to go with my different workout outfits! The only exercise I can do now cuz of my bladder is walk! I would miss it so much if I couldn't take my walks! Hang in there and I'll shoot a prayer up to the big guy for ya!! XOXO Fran.
