Going under the knife, Again

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Back in 2009, I had a major foot surgery. Other than an occasional pain here or there, that foot is good. I just left my doctors office and am looking for a Day in July to schedule m next surgery for my left foot. I am ready to get it over with so that the healing can begin and I can get back to working out and working on running my half in 2015

    I am glad your surgery resulted in an improvement. I had surgery about 4 years ago on my left foot and still have pain when standing more than a few minutes at a time. However, it has not stopped me because as long as I am moving, it does not bother me much. Good luck on your next one! emoticon

Happy 2014, Another Chance to get it right

Wednesday, January 01, 2014

Welcome to another year. I am soo glad to say that I have made it to see another year of life. January 1, is always such a interesting time for me since I no longer do resolutions but I try to set fitness goals for myself. What do I plan to do this coming year regarding my fitness. Well I plan for 14 races including the cooper River Bridge Run in Charleston South Carolina, and the Rock and roll Half Marathon in November. These are two big races for me since back in September of 13 I fractured my foot in 2 places and may not actually be able to get back to running. I have been walking each day this week and my foot feels fine, I am not rushing anything because I want to be able to do more in the future.

have a GREAT 2014 and may your year be fitter than ever!!!

1 Year Sparking - 365 day Streak

Sunday, December 29, 2013

Today marks the 365th day that I have logged into to spark people. That is pretty amazing for me to remember even when I don't work out, Even when I fractured my foot in September and could not workout at all, I was still attempting to maintain my streak and my learning for health. I am headed for another 365 total days. I wish you a blessed 2014. This road we are on is a life long journey, it is hard and lonely sometimes but I am glad there is a place called spark people where others know the struggle and understand the frustration.

Double Down DECEMBER - Let's get it in

Monday, December 02, 2013

Well, I am back. I was up at 4:45 did my Shaun T video at 5, and got in some Zumba instructor practice. The goal is to go to a Body combat class tonight. I hope that the 2 a day workouts can really get me to where I want to be. my goal is to be down 5 lbs by January 1, 2014. This is going to get interesting because as I work out harder, eating to loose weight and eating to fuel my performance sometime conflict with one another.

I am thankful

Thursday, November 28, 2013

today I am thankful for the ability to sleep in. I must have been really tired. I slept for 11 hours last night waking up only once to go to the bathroom. you never know how tired you are until your body just shuts down and gets the rest it needs. It felt so goo not to have to do anything but share in the cooking of dinner and the partaking of dinner and good conversation. I am truly blessed to be surrounded by so many people that I enjoy spending time with. I pray that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well.

    I am so jealous! I would love to sleep 11 hours straight. You are right our bodies do what they need.
