Last night, I went over to a friend's house to help his sister paint. When we were done he wanted to eat. So he ordered some Indian food. I did not even try to explain detox to a man, especially a black man, who thinks that I have already lost to much weight. I ate some chicken and rice (I tried to limit my portion to one cup), but really I watched what I ate. I even said no to Timbits (they are these donut hole things)
Today, I went to run with my running group we were doing 10K, it was steaming hot and it was only 9:00 in the morning. At around 5.5K my upper back started killing, my left sole also started to bother me. I stopped running and walking back to the store. I am thinking that the upper back pain is due to my breast size. I have large breasts and for most of my life they have been a pain in the ass. I used to say that I wished breasts were like blood and I could donate to those in need. I had hard time finding bras (to this day I go once a year to a specialty store in Toronto, were I get fitted and drop a few hundred for a few bras), inability to wear shirts with buttons, were as others looked at me in awe, I considered a breast reduction for many years. At 19, I mentioned it to my doctor, he suggested I lose weight since breasts are mostly fat (Have you heard that joke? How do you make 5 pounds of fat look good? Put a nipple on it). In the last three years I have lost weight and my breast size has gone down along with the rest of me, but they are still huge. Today, the pain stemmed from my breasts, I am sure.
My right sole is a whole other story, I really think that I have planter fasciitis, ever since the Half Marathon a month ago, I have had pain in the sole of my foot, some days it is way better than others. I have tried rolling my foot and icing and I must admit that it is better. Has anyone ever had this? What measures did you take to cure it?
Woo Hooo. 14 pounds in 7 Days! I must say that I am presently surprised. Now how I am going to keep at this? I plan to continue eating fruits and veggies, but I will have to start incorporating protein. I will continue to stay away from carbs and limit dairy. I am also going to try and not go back to juice and sodas. I am only 3 pounds away from my lowest adult weight of 203! Ahhhhh crazy!
