Taking a break.

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.

    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.
