So yesterday I had my appointment with the foot doctor, don't have a clue and neither does spell check how to spell the correct job title lol. I had to laugh when she looked at my feet and moved them the way they are suppose to move and she said, I had perfect feet. Personally I am not very fond of my feet, but I guess from the bone structure and they way they function they are just perfect. Having maybe the perfect feet is because I remember as a small child wearing orthotics, because of flat feet, but what kid doesn't have flat feet? Seemed to be a generational and maybe a German thing, because I remember everybody had them. Also my dad was a stickler for good foot wear, no matter at what cost, it's your feet that carry you everywhere so you have to take good care of them. He rather only bought shoes every two years, but you can bet they were the best you can find. So why in the hell do my feet hurt so much? Well can you believe it....too much exercise and overuse of the tendons and of course prolonged excessive weight ( omg I can't believe I am admitting this again...yuck...what is wrong with me?), when I lost some of my weight, and I still have tons to go, I exercised every day like a mad woman, liked it and did some more every day, then came the walking challenge at work on top of my daily workout, and pretty much since then my feet are shot. I have plantar fasciiatis on the bottom of my left foot and Achilles tendonitis and retrocalcaneal bursitis on my right heel. Both very painful and on some days I don't know which side hurts more, some days it's both equally bad and in reality I could just cry from the pain at times, but I pull up my big girl panties, smile and I am fine and pumped full of pain medication. I definitely have slowed down with my exercise, which really makes me mad, because how am I suppose to loose more weight if I can't exercise properly and eating right only goes so far. So hopefully getting the proper shoe wear and orthotics will help with that and make life a little more enjoyable.
Since I have my foot x rays here at the house, I thought I take a picture of my fixed up ankle, lol looks like a do-it-yourself fixer upper to me lol, but hey it works...what more do I want? Maybe a perfect ankle to go with my perfect foot?
