It’s time for True Confessions. Let me be the first to say that I haven’t done my best the past few weeks. I’m not proud of it, but I’m fessing up and telling the truth. True confession is good for the soul, right?

As some of you know, I’m dealing with some tendonitis in my foot. There are way to many things that I’m not supposed to do. Walking and zumba are two of my favorite forms of exercise and both are not allowed right now. I can do core, upper body and yoga as I can tolerate.

I am supposed to be off my foot as much as possible which doesn’t really happen much during the day working in a preschool. I have a wrap type thing that I am supposed to wear (and I do) and ice my foot at least three times a day. I go back to the doctor tomorrow and get exray results and decide on the next course of treatment. I could keep doing what I am doing. I might need inserts. A small part of me is wishing that he says hairline fracture and puts me in a boot for 8 weeks and then it’s all good.

Here’s the confession part of this post! As a general rule of thumb, by the time I get home from work and get supper on the table, my foot is throbbing. Many days it is swollen. Because of this, all I want to do is get my foot up on the ottoman and get ice on it. Needless to say, I have not even tried to go to an exercise class for three weeks!! I’m embarrassed to say that, but it’s the truth.

I’m being a baby and I know it. I will go to class tomorrow after the doctor, unless I am in a boot and I don’t really see that happening. If my foot already hurts, what’s the big deal if it keeps hurting for a little while longer? The worse part of this is that I feel like I haven’t worked out in three weeks. I’m tired and if I was going to class, I would have some energy back. I feel slow and I hate it. So, it’s back to class, like it or not. I am going!

How about you? Anything you’d like to get off your chest? Just tell us all about it in the comments. You’ll feel better. I know I sure do.
