You have my total respect for keeping it up. I would have given up after the first 5 minutes. I wouldn't be able to stand the pain. Also, my knees can't take the punishment these days, so there's that.:)
It's literally just the balls of my feet that hurt; my knees and back are fine (I think those problems develop after YEARS of wearing heels a lot). I have noticed sore muscles in my legs though but that's no big deal, it just feels like I've been working out a little. Which I guess I have, in a way....

DeathClock .com says that if I have a normal outlook I will live to 79, but if I am optimistic I will get to be 94 1/4 on June 24, 2044; Wharton School (U PA)Gosset scale, asking much more information tells me I will make it to 91; Bureau of Labor Statistics says 84 1/2.
FWIW both parents are alive and in their 80's, grandparents died at 72, 77,76 and 93.
Mine told me 99. May 14, 2067.

Death Clock told me I'd live until I'm 95. I'm good with that.

I put "optimistic," but I thought I heard/read recently that research showed that peeople with pessimistic outlooks lived longer becuase they didn't bury their head in the sand with their health and pretend that nothing could happen to them.

I'd be surprised about that. All the people I know who have lived past 90 have been optimistic people. But that's just people I know so it's not a research formal thing.

Mimi -- a friend said she changed deathclock to "sadistic" (from optimistic) and said it told her she'd die in January 2014. hEH.

We lost my great Aunt at 105 and she was always cheerful and optimistic, even though at times...her life on the farm in Michigan, must have been tough...She unfortunatly did'nt know who i was for the last 10-15 years....

Day Three of high heel training begins... I think it might be getting slightly easier. Actually, more accurate wording is that it might be getting slightly less horrible.
Hi, you!!
What's this? Why heels now?
I am an avid daily high heel wearer, so I support this.
Now I did go from 3 inches down to 2. I buy a size larger than I wear and use the inserts, long ones with the arch support.
I stand mostly and get flak at work (from the larger, Birkenstock crowd, gah) but I don't care. They are lovely. ;)
