I Found My Marbles


by Kiki

Oakland–In truth I never lost my marbles, I simply didn’t have any.

I have PTTD (Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction aka “adult acquired flatfoot”) in my left foot and it is immobilized in a boot until I go back to my podiatrist for a check up to see how the healing is progressing.

I can’t walk my normal 10,000 daily steps, I can walk, but no exercising.  I see this as an opportunity to slow down, rest, and work on my upper body.

As for the marbles, my doctor suggested I use them in a stretching exercise. I bought some.  I place the marbles on the floor next to a cup, using my toes I lift the marbles up from the floor and put them in the cup.  It strengthens the muscles in the arch.  I repeat it 15 times.

Peace, love, gratitude, compassion, and blessings.
