I am with you Danielle. I am not a tracker. I do keep a food journal, and I do measure for portion size on certain foods, but we can get too obsessed about things scales, etc. Like you said it is a lifestyle. How many people on the SAD diet track every morsel…. it can be overwhelming!!
Hello Daniela I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis last year and what was a game changer for me was wearing a splint at night and shoe inserts during the day. There are 2 kinds of splints but the one that looks like a boot is the one that really worked. I bought it online from Walmart. Worked very quickly
I had plantar fasciitis in both feet for years. I went to a running shoe store. They watch you walk/run etc in shoes. This way you get one the supports you properly. Also stretching before you get up, freeze a water bottle and roll it under your foot, ibuprofen. Mine is completely gone. Hope yours doesn’t last too long. You’re doing great by the way!!!
You rock, girlie – you're so motivating & relatable – keep it up! I had it in my right foot – I have flat feet & years in unsupportive office shoes was likely the culprit. Take it easy, it can take a REALLY long time to heal…like a year+. It's hard because you need to reduce the swelling of the tendon that runs along the bottom of your foot for it to heal, but yet we still gotta live, walk, drive, etc. Tips: Intermittently ice the bottom of your foot daily, stretch brace for bedtime, stretch the tendon by pushing the bottom of your feet over a soup can or tennis ball. I took Aleve and that helped reduce inflammation & pain. I even had 2 cortisone shots (moderately helpful, I wouldn't do it again) – finally once the pain was down to a 1-2 level, I had a reflexologist work to help my nerves release the calf muscle (it was locked due to muscle memory of the injury) which leads to the tightening of the whole muscle system. Hang in there, but you'll have to be patient with this one. 🙁
Planters fascitis sucks😪 I’ve struggled on and off for years (particularly more if I was heavier). Th worst was when i waitressed. Finally, it came back big time about a year into my Medical assistant career. I went to the podiatrist and she had these suggestions since I didn’t want to do shots. 1. Wear supportive shoes at al times even in the house….no going barefoot 2. Stretching prior to long walks 3. Orthotic inserts (this was the one that finally made it go away) I had them done professionally after molds were made of my feet
Now 2.5 years later, I can have cheat days and wear less supportive shoes. However, Spenco sells some really cute sandals so I don’t cheat as much anymore. (Ok, well maybe in the house🥴 but who likes wearing shoes in the house) that’s the best part of coming home…kicking off your work shoes👍
I had the same thing for over a year but then I found accupunter helped alot in the foot, Achilles and calf. stretching your legs is very important and new supportive shoes is a must! Mine has gone Thankgod but I keep on top of it.
My daughter had the same problem with her heal when she was doing track. Her PT suggested going to the road runner store and getting her evaluated for the proper shoes. We went to the Naperville’s store. They put her on a treadmill and it showed how her foot 🦶 landed and what was the best shoe and inserts for her. They recommend Brooks running shoes but got them somewhere else because that store is way too expensive for me. She hasn’t had any problems since.❤️💕
Girl the Fasha… be very mindful of your body bc it can get really Bad. On the positive side I did my exercises, rested when I needed too and I have been pain free for over 10 years and mine was really bad where I could barely walk on it in the morning. No surgery needed!!! I pray it passes soon
I also suffer from plantar fasciitis. When I get a flare up episode, it lasts about a month. Dr. Scholls makes insloses specially for plantar fasciitis. I slide then into my gym sneakers, and it really helps alleviate the shock on your foot while working out. Hope your foot feels better soon!
I'm half black half Mexican and if I brought my own food to a family event, that would be a problem. Lol!! My family would 100% be offended. I have however taken a keto friendly dish to share with everyone and that has gone over better.
Same thing happened to me and my dr told me to go to a running store well i paid $165 for a pair of sneakers and let me tell you it felt so much better at the gym when i went 2 days later but I’m only using the sneakers for the gym.
Once again, loving the support! I posted on Insta what I did to prep for my trip to Chicagoland recently to keep it keto/low carb while traveling. When you're sitting solo in a hotel room, that online support means everything!
