I Think I Love You

Last night's dinner was ah-mazing. Amazingly simple, and amazingly delicious.

Amazingly simple as in, throw pork tenderloin in a crock pot, season it with garlic salt and pepper, slow cook on low for about 8 hours, transfer to a baking dish, slather with barbecue sauce, then bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. My house smelled great when I walked in the door after a long day at work.

Slow cooker, I think I love you.

If you're wondering why my fries are orange, its because they are "sweet potato" fries. They, were also amazing.

Since I have been stressing out a bit about my possible plantar fasciitis, I did not do any cardio last night. My workout plans for the week have changed. I did my arm strength training routine, instead. It actually worked out well because since the weather was so nice on Monday evening, my husband and I went for a walk. So, technically, I'm just swapping my days around. (But we all really know my possible plantar fasciitis is to blame.)

Readers, give me some more hope, please. Will this pain ever go away? I need some more success stories for life after plantar fasciitis and/or heel spurs.


  1. Great minds think alike! We had bbq pork in the slow cooker & baked sweet potatoes last night!

  2. I also had plantar fasciitis. I was from when I started "running" without getting fitted for running shoes at about 270 pounds. It was so bad when I would wake up in the middle of the night with my kids I would hop out of bed and instantly almost collapse due to the pain in my heels. It was horrible.
    I dr googled my self and tapered back to only walking and stretches I found online. I did walking and water aerobics for about 2 months and then had my physical. I talked to my doc and he agreed with my opinion and added I can start running again he highly recommended getting fitted for running shoes. He also recommended base building. So I would walk .9 miles run .1 if you're fine the next day you can bump it up to .2 running... And so on. If it hurts the next day step once back and stay for a few days/a week and try again... I now am training for my first 1/2 marathon.

    I still draw the aphlabet with my toes several times a day and if my feet hurt at all I really enjoy rolling my foot on a frozen water bottle. It will get better, take care!

    1. Thanks for all the information! I'm starting to wonder if this is caused by my shoes. They feel very loose when I run. I have an appt. for March 25th, and I will take my sneakers with me!
