My diet was going so-so before last Friday. I was doing pretty good, but not great and was not really losing any weight. My running, on the other hand, was going well. Friday night, I was up to running 28 minutes straight.
However, on that run, I had some significant pain in my left foot. I almost had to stop. However, I pushed through and it totally went away and I continued. I did not notice any other problems until that night right before bed where I noticed my foot was a bit sore. During the night, however, when I got up to go to the restroom, I could barely walk it hurt so bad.
So something went wrong. I figured I would give it a few days and see if it felt better. In the mean time, my diet took a turn for the better.
Not sure exactly what changed, but something clicked. I was all the sudden dedicated to doing what I have long said I was dedicated to. Only eating when I was hungry and when I eat, controlling what and how much. I have since had an unbelievable week of doing this.
So something about this foot injury helped me to focus. I still cannot explain it.
My foot is now feeling much better. I don’t have any pain in it. I am a little concerned about running again since I don’t really know what I did. I guess I will just have to hit the pavement and see how it goes.
As far as my weight, I have not stepped on a scale. I was very tempted to this morning, but I was afraid if I did not see enough of a loss, my spirit would be crushed. So I am not going to for a while. Not much point anyway. I am doing all I can do. The loss will come from God in His time.
