I must be getting old! I went clothes shopping yesterday. The weather is starting to warm up a bit and all my stuff from last year was donated in the fall because it was all too big. I'm happy to (still) be in a smaller size, just not happy about the prices!
I walked into one of my favorite (plus size) clothing stores yesterday just to be sticker shocked. I knew going in that they are a bit more expensive than I would like but the other retailer that I used to frequent has since closed their doors...most of them anyway...the next closest one to me is 20 minutes away. Anyway, in I go knowing that I will only be able to buy 2-3 tops. HA! I didn't purchase a thing. All the cotton shirts (nothing special about them) started at over $30! I couldn't believe it! Out I walked.
I did end up finding another store (the one that closed it's local doors). I was able to buy a week's worth of tops for the price of 3 at the other place.
Seriously, what is going on with all the rising costs. It's crazy! I used to shake my head and roll my eyes when my (late) grandmother would complain about prices. And here I am doing the same thing. Then I think about it and realize how crazy I am. I'm OK with spending just over $2 for a cup of coffee at the drive thru but won't spend the money on stuff that I need. What is up with that?
And to yesterday's business....just keeping me on track and honest....

And a photo of my ugly feet while being iced and electric stim. Gotta say that as crazy as it sounds, this is one of my favorite things. I think it's one of the things that is really helping me. I'm considering buying my own machine when PT is over.
I asked my therapist what she thought of the cortisone shot. She said she hates shots but if I thought it would help to go ahead and do it, but based on my pain level the last few days I should probably hold off.
My appointment with the doctor is this afternoon. Very curious to see what she has to say about it. I just feel like if I could get to a pain-free (or as close to as possible), I'd be less depressed and more willing/able to get into the gym without worry about how I am going to feel when I am done.
