If the heel pain starts up again I may have to get a membership at a club to go swimming regularly and do water aerobics. My podiatrist actually doesn't want me to walk at this weight (there's a nice catch 22) because I have a deformity of gait that puts pressure on the tendons going up the inside of my legs. He warns that they can become inflamed and burst, necessitating surgery. Perhaps I can alternate walking and water aerobics when I get my 401K money. In the meantime I'll keep an eye on how tender they get and how my heels are doing and lighten up on activity as needed. I will also add some strength training. I'd love to get a punching bag too. I wish I didn't have to store my car in the garage, because it would make a nice work out area. I guess I could get things that I use while parking my car on the street, then put them aside so I can park the car at night. I'd like a basketball hoop too.
It's really helping to be able to do my own cooking again. If only I could get rid of the ants I'd cook even more and make myself some bread too. Periodically they gross me out by over-running my kitchen. I guess they're avoiding the rains we've had.
