One step closer with my foot
Friday, May 20, 2016
I leave in about a half hour to go the my orthopedist appointment. He won't let me delay any longer. Today will be the cortisone shot.
It's probably time anyway. I have been making progress but it's time to take the next step. After talking with John (PT guy), I feel a little better about it. He said I'll still feel the tightness and discomfort if I overdo it, and if it tears again, I'll DEFINITELY feel it. I'm actually happy about that. I know that sounds weird, but it's true. If I DIDN'T feel it, I'd overdo it and could injure it worse without knowing. At least with pain and discomfort, I know when to back off.
My eating was horrible yesterday. I'm chalking it up to nerves. I'll be glad when this is done especially for that reason. I was doing good all day, then went through the McDonald's drive-thru on auto pilot last night. I had a grilled chicken salad, which would have been great, but I also had a cheeseburger....not so great. Then there were to two slices of cheese pizza at the house.
I wish it wasn't even brought into the house! It's like my brain completely shut off and I was sleep-eating!
Today will be a better day, I promise! I have leftover spinach lasagna at work, and individual serving sized bags of veggie straws, so I should be good.
Time to get ready to face the music! AFTER I take some ibuprofen...just in case lol.
