What is up with my toes?

Sooo…I went for a nice relaxing no radio/ipod or watch run (which i lurrrrve to do!) this afternoon and everything was fine and dandy until I got home and started doing some strength training.  I was doing lunges when I noticed that a few of my toes hurtOdd.  Kept going and finished all the weights and ab work and stuff and finally took a shower before the rest of the family got here for our third christmas celebration.  Anyhow, upon observation of my toes (only 4, the middle on my right, the big toe and middle and 4th on the left) were super red and swollen as hard as rocks.  I could still feel them but they were quite numb and they hurt to the touch.  I went through a process of elimination with my dad to figure out what it could be, from new shoes/socks to weather to running style…and nothing has changed or done differently.  anyone heard of this or had it happen?  I’m currently propped with my feet up and popped a few advil in hopes it would die down and go away…it’s totally weirding me out!

Anyhow…Today was a pretty good day.  I woke up with a pretty itchy throat and automatically hit up the tea pot.  Two cups of smoke’n hot tea later and I was feeling a bit better.  Then I got to making some more ting-a-lings for tonight’s dessert and helping clean up the house.  I eventually had breakfast and decided to try something different.  I’m a creature of habit and normally you see walnuts in my oats…but today we had some peanuts left over from the tin-a-lings so I decided to use those instead…VerdictSoooooo good with the cranberries and the banana!  I wasn’t a fan of pb w/ my oats so this was great to try!  I think it’s because it included the crunch I love in my oats; I’ll def be using these again!

After all the cleaning I made lunch out of the great bakery bread we picked up at the farmer’s market on Saturday, along with the fresh sun-dried tomato pesto hummus we got there too.  Fabulous sandwich…along with the blueberries and kiwi. Oh yeah, I had an apple before eating lunch…i was ravenous!

Before heading out I had this wonderful bar….then went to Costco to get some more goods for tonight…

Got home and went for my run and snacked on some TLC crackers and laughing cow cheese (sorry, no pic!)  while waiting for everyone to show up…

But, I did get a wonderful surprise in the mail today!!  Sharon from Snippets and Bites sent me a little something for the Gnu bars I sent her just before Christmas!  I was way excited to open it and enthralled at what I got!  I’ve been meaning to get a new book and she said she read this one and it was good so I’m excited for that.  And of course, a girl can never have too many pens and pencils…

    Can You Keep a Secret is one of my favorite books. It’s awesome (:

    Tea is absolutely the best cure for a tickly throat in my opinion!
    Do you think the toe thing could be an infection. Sometimes fungal infections can be red, painful and sore.

  6. Peanut Butter and Jenny says:

    yikes – sorry about your toesies :(!! I wish i could help!

  7. Sharon says:

    I’m so glad you love it! And horray for tea!

    I really do hope you toes are okay soon, I’ve never heard of something like that happen! Hang in there!

    Sounds like your shoes could be too small, but they are not new, right? Weird. I would ice the toes to reduce any swelling and inflammation. Hope they are feeling better soon!

    Salty peanuts and sweet cranberries/banana? Bet that was good :) Oh, and keep drinking that tea – so many healing properties.

    Yikes! I hope your toes feel better soon! Good thing you received a super sweet bloggie gift from Sharon :o)

    Peanuts in the oatmeal sounds yummy!

  11. Vegetation says:

    Hope your toes feel better soon and that throat doesn’t turn into a cold! I’ve had a scratchy weird throat the last 24 hours and am hoping desperately that mine won’t!

  12. K says:

    Hm that is odd regarding the toe pain, hope it gets better!!

    What a great gift from Sharon!

  13. Meghann says:

    I agree that book is a must read. I love anything written by Sophie Kinsella, have you read her Shoppaholic Series?

    Sorry about the toes, the only thing I can think of would be shoes, but it sounds like you’ve already eliminated that option. I hope they feel better!

  14. ttfn300 says:

    ooh, like the tigger mug :) hehe, and i haven’t a clue about your toes, but i sure hope it was a random occurance and they’re better soon!

    i’ve been doing the no ipod/watch runs alot and love it :)

  15. Katie says:

    Weird toe issue! If it’s still going on this morning, maybe you should see a podiatrist. Strange.

    Love those gifts! Shopaholic is pretty fantastic.

  16. Juliet says:

    Take it easy. I hope you feel better soon!! Tea is a great remedy. :)

  17. loveofoats.com says:

    oh no that is so totally weird about your toes – i hope they are back to normal today!

    i love adding all kinds of nuts to my oats… peanuts are a nice change from the texture of walnuts, almonds, and pecans :)

  18. Krista says:

    I adore TAZO Calm! It’s a nice just before bed tea for me.

    Weird thing with your toes…wonder what’s up with that?
