February 29, 2012

After looking back at  this post about flat belly, I decided to post an update. I managed to get a flat belly. I am currently in the best shape of my life since I was 18. And I eat everything I want.
My secret is - running. I started a program to increase the mileage, and I've been running about 10-13 miles a week. It's a lot for me.

However, I didn't expect to get my foot so injured that it would hurt to walk, not to mention run.

Today the pain was so strong, I had to slow down my pace. When I walk, I step on the outside of my foot, which is hurting now too. After consulting my doctor, the Internet, I know it is metatarsalgia. I know exactly how and when I got it. It was last year, from my stupid high-heel boots. They were the only presentable winter footwear that I could wear to work. It took me several months to heal that pain. And it took one day of wearing heels a month ago to bring the pain back.
This time I ignored the pain and kept to my weekly running routine. Until today. After the articles and videos my "doctor' showed me, I decided to give my feet some rest.
I don't want the pain to get worse and with the increased mileage and all.... it's just better to wait a little.
I do want to start walking normally again, not thinking how to angle my foot every time I make a step.
Big sigh......

I am still going to work on elliptical machines

P.S. Today managed to be different


I need to buy this print when I get back to the States. It's so magical and makes me feel peaceful, dreamy, happy :)

More pillows

This time,  it's something of an inspiration. I look at these beautiful pillows and I want to try make them myself (if I could only sew)
They look so fun, modern, effortless, that I just want to cuddle them.

I found them at this beautiful store sukanart, that is based in Turkey.

Home decor

The pain of decorating any space is getting here. We have a dark heavy leather couch that needs some color. We already have bright red and orange pillows and throws on it, but I am itching to buy more. I also want to dress our bed and make it look hotel-like polished, but with colors. And what will bring those colors?- pillows of course.
I've found these beautiful pillows on etsy from StillLifeHome. They would go great with shades of blue we already have in our bedroom and bright colors of the living room:
