Why I'm Weighing In Part 2

I wish that I could write that I'd done it... that I had reached my goal weight. But the reality is I let others' opinions and self doubt creep into my head. So my 2lbs a week weight loss came to a grinding halt and I hit a massive plateau. This snowballed into a self destructive pattern that has resulted in a very unproductive month. Well, to be honest, I can't say that. Because you can learn from every situation right?

To My Friends With Plantar Fasciitis


If you are a suffer of Plantar Fasciitis, you might want to take a moment and read this. When I broke my foot a couple of years ago, after being in 'the boot', I started having problems with the beginning of planter fasciitis. And for most runners, the mere mention of the word can strike fear. So I immediately began doing stretches and strengthening exercises.

As most of you know, a tennis ball, golf ball or frozen water bottle seem to be the device of choice to use on the arch area of your foot. My tool of choice was a golf ball. It seemed to get to the area better than the tennis ball or water bottle. But after coming across the Oh Ball, I do believe that I will be retiring my golf ball.

The Oh Ball looks like this





And one thing that I really love about it is the handles. An issue I had with the golf ball (or other tools) was that as I would apply pressure, the ball would slip out or move off of the 'spot' that I was trying to work on. With the handles, I can keep the pressure exactly where I need it.

The Oh Ball is made out of maple wood which I have been told is one of the best anti microbial surfaces available. This little device has now become one of my daily staples, especially now that I'm back to training.

So if suffer, or like me, would like to keep from suffering from plantar fasciitis, I encourage you to check out the Oh Ball. I'm glad that I did!

  2. You're right the handles are pretty useful, it's such a hassle when the golf balls slip.

  5. Thanks for sharing the useful method. I purchased this for my girlfriend as she works on her feet about 17+ hours a day. She absolutely loved it. She can put as much or as little pressure as she feels necessary without hurting herself. ~ Brad.
