Sooo it’s been somewhat of a secret that I’ve recently decided to get off the couch & get healthy. I have a few “go-to’s” who have been aware of my journey thus far. So I guess you could say the cat’s coming out of the bag.
Recently, I’ve been taking the boys to the local park. They ride their bikes and I walk (eventually going to be a jog or a run). I usually do 2 or 3 miles per day. In addition the boys and I have been working out at home (they will confirm this is true Lol) and we’ve been spending time in the pool. They swim… I focus on water aerobics and let me tell you- I wondered if they were working on day #1 and day #2… but on day #3 I started swimming and doing donkey kicks under the water and my hips definitely let me know that day this yes, this is working!!
So in any case, for about 2 weeks my right foot has been bothering me. No trauma. No bruise. It’s hard for me to even explain the pain… but it’s worst in the mornings. I have been sorta walking around with my coffee cup in the mornings trying to determing if walking will be possible that day, while the boys follow me around, begging to load up their bikes so “we can go ride”. They love it! It’s a win-win-win situatuon! We’re all happy and all moving. Score.
After a few days of this I had to evaluate my foot. Pretty sure I’m going to end up visiting the Dr. But in the meantime… I’ve been using Footworks products to sooth my aching feet. And they have kept me going (see below today’s walk):
Oh yesss! Almost 4.5 miles! Amazing! I feel wonderful! & although I seriously hate my scale.. I’m noticing other victories. NSV’s. Nom-Scale Victories. Great, great feeling. So what are these products that are allowing my feet to continue providing NSV’s? I thought you’d never ask:
The FootWorks Lavender Pampering Oil is amazing! I put some in some warm water and soaked my aching foot for a while. It was very soothing and rejuvenating. Put some life back into my poor foot. Lol
I think I love the peppermint reviving leg gel the most! I’ve mentioned it before in previous posts. I can’t say enough good things about it. I use it on legs and feet. It’s not too strong and not very tingly. Many people don’t like tingly feelings. But again… this stuff has definitely been putting some life back into my feet and legs from all this hard work I’m putting them through.
& lastly… nothing to do with aching feet. I live with a bunch of smelly boys & look at this…
This deodorizing spray is only $3.99 (so I bought 2!!) We definitely, definitely need and use this stuff!! & for Hubby with BIG feet problems & constantly wearing work boots at work 75+ hours per week:
Deodorizing foot powder. Also just $3.99. & totally worth it.
