Foot Health: Foot Health is knowing your feet, checking them daily for any signs or changes that are unexpected. Noticing any changes in colour, hair, feeling, or lesions on your feet. Also making sure you are wearing the proper shoe gear, socks, for whatever type of activity you are attempting to preform (work, workouts, climbing etc.)

HIT Training: What you are basically describing is a short version of High Intensity Training (HIT) is a form of strength training popularized in the 1970s by Arthur Jones, the founder of Nautilus. The training focuses on performing quality weight training repetitions to the point of momentary muscular failure. Given your age I would recommend you speaking to you physician before going on any longer.

Odd sensations: There are a lot of things in that area, that could cause this kind of discomfort. From arthritis, to sprain, from nerve injury to stress fracture. Give yourself a couple of days rest and elevate the leg/foot with ice. Make sure you wear good supportive shoegear (not Sandals or flip-flops!) If the pain or discomfort continues without improvement ask your PCP for a referral to a podiatrist!

Depends: Sometimes strains in you abdominal muscle groups are just a result of using them in different activities (ab crunches, sit-ups etc.) or other types of physical fitness where you are engaging your core muscle groups. It is important that if you do work your abs that you also do workouts to build up your back muscles. Remember in fitness and life BALANCE IS KEY!

Moderation!: This is not a bad thing, being healthy and getting excited about the results you are seeing is a benefit to getting more fit. On the other hand if you are not a professional body builder, athlete, or something along that lines; working out more than once a day or back to back days on the same muscle groups is a rapid way to injure yourself!

Loosing fat: Keep things simple, burn more calories then you put into your body. Stay activity and build your activity level up slowly. Do not attempt a "fad" diet or pills that promises localized fat reduction. Fat as we get older does tend to migrate towards our abdomen as well, so maintaining expectations will go a long way as well.
