"cut"ting through exercise!

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

Ok, since when do you put on your shoe, walk halfway out to the mailbox and then discover you have something in your shoe that cuts your foot enough that it bleeds all other the place? I'd wore these shoes last night and the day before all day and not had a problem then today I put them on and OW!

When I pulled it out, I was too concerned with all the blood that I didn't pay much attention to what it was, but I believe I know because Sunday afternoon, late, I dropped a bottle outside in the garage and it went all over the place. I have a feeling this piece of glass (that's what it felt like when I pulled it out) was down in the bottom/side area of my shoe and worked it's way out this morning when I was walking. It figures, I'm supposed to be going to the Midwest Horse Fair Saturday, a movie Friday, grocery shopping Thursday, I'm hoping it heals well so I can do all those without any pain. Right now it's not too bad, I put my foot in water to clean it out and checked it in a mirror (it's on the bottom/outer side left foot. Thank goodness it wasn't on the heel, that would have been far worse.

So I'm not going to do my walking exercise today, I'll replace it with the other one I'd been doing before I started the walking exercise, only because when doing the walking one, it's more than just walking, there are side steps, leg lifts, kicks (not sure about putting a lot of pressure on it , I don't want it to start bleeding again, it's not the pain, that I could tolerate, I'm sure.

Well enough about my foot, being Diabetic I do worry about them and after this many years of having Type 1 I don't want something to go I worry too much? Nope! :D

The Playground meeting went pretty good last night, it was the general concensus that we stay together, even though the one guy did put out a lot of names of people who "couldn't do it anymore" (one of them even said "you're saying I'm old?" because he did, and then she argued against what he was saying :D) We pointed out how there are new members coming on board, then I think what really hit him hard, was when my Mom asked the City Parks Director if the playground would be taken care of like it is now, if we disbanded and he said he didn't believe it would be. There's the ace card.

We did tell him that if a person wishes to leave we wouldn't hold anything against them, that we understood, but he never gave up his membership. I'm kind of wondering if it's because he came to the second meeting we had and he just don't want to "drop out" because he wants to be with it for the long run, but that's up to him.

The Parks person has to leave because he got a higher-up job as head of the Parks Dept, and that's wonderful, he deserves it, but he's going to have someone else come on board, so that's great.

I'd better get my exercises done, normally I'm done before now, but I wanted my foot to have that extra bit of "rest" before I do it.

Have a GREAT DAY, everyone and don't forget that SMILE! emoticon

ADDENDUM: I finished 43 minutes of workout including a new "walking" video, and it didn't seem to bother my foot at all, so I'll be GREAT! Have a good one, I'm going to!

    Well it seems like things are starting to work itself out as someone has a replacement by the sounds of it. See no point in worrying to much as things always have a way of working themselves out. emoticon

    Your foot sounds painful. Hopeful it will heal fast. Let the air at it as much as possible.

    Way to go in getting your exercise in!!!! emoticon emoticon
