I went to the doctor last week because I was having problems with my left heel. The pain was awful. Apparently I have inflammation and I need to find another form of exercise. I have lost a total of 3 whole pounds. While some might say that is nothing, for me, it is the motivation to keep me going. I just need to step up my game. Here are some of the things she suggested.
1. Try water aerobics. Less stress on my feet and more resistance. 2. Keep a food log(I am starting this one on Monday). 3. Riding a bike. While it gives the same effect as walking, but, again less stress on my feet.
I am checking into the local gym around my area to see what type of deals that they offer. Money and pain are my enemy now. Money to join a gym and keep my heel from being irritated. Until I find both, I will keep on walking.
Oh by the way, I made my first smoothie yesterday and it was delicious. Check out my recipe.
I wanted to find a way to use leftover coffee. Then it hit me. I freeze the leftover coffee in ice-cube trays. I can make ice coffee( my way) or this smoothie. I used what I had on hand
I added the coffee ice cubes (6), lite vanilla ice cream (1/2 cup), one package of hot chocolate, banana ( whole), flax-seed powder (1 tablespoon) with a little water. I also added 1 tablespoon of honey and a few drops of butter pecan oil . You can add cinnamon or nutmeg, with a dash of vanilla extract to your desired taste. I am sorry I don’t have a pic. Next time I make one, I will ready with the camera. I need some more recipes.
