Here's the Deal-EE-O!

Wednesday, April 06, 2011

Ok, so after taking a bit of a break from SparkPeople, I feel like I am not SOOOO obsessive with it, and can get down to focusing on other business....

So, now to update you all:

WE ARE PLANNING TO MOVE BACK TO THE STATES!!! And I am totally BEYOND excited! After much prayer, we totally feel that this is the right decision. My husband and I are totally at peace. We have no idea how all the details will work out, and it seems so complicated and difficult, but we are trusting in the One who holds ALL things in His hands!

Have you ever gotten something you thought you had always wanted, or something you "asked" for, and it just NOT turn out to be what you wanted??? That is EXACTLY how coming to Germany has been for me. I had ALWAYS dreamed of living in a foreign country, even more specifically - GERMANY! So, when my husband started talking seriously about moving here to be close to his family, I totally jumped on the bandwagon!

We were promised this from his family:
* a job with the family biz (BMW, Ford, and Suzuki dealership, working for his aunt and uncle)
* a car
* a free apartment (a family-own apartment above the family biz)
* even our GAS for our car, since the family owns a gas station too.

It sounded so good! Moving to Germany is super easy too, when you are married to a German. You just walk into the immigration offices here, fill out a quick form, pay something like €35, and BAMM!! You got yourself a Visa to live here! Not like immigration to the States, which costs about $1,000 in multiple different forms, and takes about 6 months to be approved.

Anyway, our moved here seemed so easy. We had everything handed to us. Yet, before we even got here, we BOTH really had some doubts, my husband even MORE than me! But by the time he expressed them to me, it was too late. It was 2 weeks before our flights were to leave, we had sold our house, our car, EVERYTHING! And we had already shipped the things we meant to keep to Germany. Try reversing that.

So we went ahead and moved. But I have to say, the 4.5 years we have been here have been FULL of turmoil - VERY strained family relationships, horrible working conditions with his aunt and uncle which = total job stress, financial issues, everything. We had a falling out with his parents in the first year we lived here which got so bad, that I couldn't even be in the SAME ROOM as his mother, she was just absolutely hostile to me! His aunt and uncle are HORRIBLE managers and HORRIBLE people to work for, and it's been nothing but stress working for them. It's been a very difficult 4 years. Only a few months after we got here, my husband was already talking about going back.

But we have stuck it out. Honestly, I didn't want to leave Germany. I really love it here. I love where we live, and I love running out here in the country. I love being able to be submersed in a different culture and learn the language. I love that I can speak German now.

But while Germany is nice and all, Jan and I are ready to come "home!" He even says that. He loved living in the States, and he felt more at home there than he does here. And if you compare my family with his???????? Yeah, MY FAMILY, ANY DAY!! I have an AWESOME family who love him and except him just the way he is (unlike his mother with me.) And my family is just, well, AWESOME! Did I mention they are AWESOME? My 3 sisters and I, even though we have lived pretty far away from each other as adults, are all very close, and we LOVE getting together! They are just AWESOME! Yes, my extended family is pretty AWESOME!

So, as of now, we will be taking the necessary steps to head back. We are meeting with the real estate agent tomorrow to put our house up for sale. We are starting to apply for all of Jan's permanent residency junk. And we are moving forward!!

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR MY PLANS NOW:
First, I am gonna nix the vegetable garden. I just don't have the time, and it seems useless if we are going to be selling the house. The patch of yard that I have cleared for my vegetable garden will look much nicer with grass growing on it, so I will be planting grass there for now.... Makes me a little sad, but I want everything to look it's best.

Secondly, I will still be finishing up my schooling here in Germany. I want my CERTIFICATE!! We take our written final in May, like I said before, and our practical final in October. So, we are planning anytime around finishing that to return to the States, dependent upon when the house sells, of course.

Thirdly, I will still be studying toward my ACE Fitness Certification as a personal trainer, and coming over in July to visit, if all goes well.

Fourthly, my races - now, more than EVER, I want to do that marathon in October, the mountain trail one!! So, I definitely don't wanna leave until I conquer that mountain! I will, hopefully, be proceeding forward with all my races as planned.


So, there you have my update, Sparkers! I have some other updates to come, but those will have to be on another day....

Happy Sparking, everyone! Happy and safe running to all!!

Good-bye, SparkPeople!

Monday, March 21, 2011

Well, it's not really good-bye... Only a "See-you-later," I guess. After much contemplation, I have decided to really cut out all the Sparking time. I love SparkPeople. And you all have been such an inspiration to me. Everything I said in my Vlog a couple of weeks ago, I meant whole-heartedly.

But there are so many things I need to focus on right now, so I will be signing off of SP for a while. If I do not answer you immediately (or at all), please don't think I am rude!

Here is what I have going on:

**May 10th - I will be taking a HUGE exam, about 4 hours in duration, for the schooling program I am taking here in Germany. So, not only is it a HUGE exam, but it is in GERMAN. Not exactly my mother-tongue.

Normally, a person fresh out of highschool would take this program over 3 years, and have exams spread throughout. But I am taking a program for people who already have work experience, thus the program is only 1.5 year in length, with one accumulative exam... for me, that accumulative exam is on May 10th.

**July - I am flying back to the States with the main purpose of taking my test from ACE Fitness to become a certified personal trainer, something I have wanted to do for YEARS! So, as soon as I finish my exam in May, I will be studying HARD for July!

** My gardening - I am DETERMINED this year to get a head start on my garden. Last year, I started way too late, it wasn't well-planned out, and I didn't get as much accomplished as I had hoped. But this year, I want to really get gardening.... which requires a great deal of time.

These were all part of my 2011 Goals, and FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION!! In order to accomplish all of these goals, I need to focus and work hard. Any prayers, positive thougths, and words of encouragement are MORE than welcome during this time!

Not to mention, that I am also a wife and mother of 4 beatiful kids - a 9-yr-old son, a 4-yr-old special-needs son, and 2-yr-old twin girls. My family needs me too, and I need to make sure they get some quality time from me.

emoticon I will NOT be slacking off in my running and other exercise, of course!! Yeah, you all know I am a bit of a running FREAK!! And I will continue tracking, and keeping up my healthy lifestyle.

I appreciate you all understanding! And this does NOT mean I will be slacking off in my exercise in any way, shape or form!! I ASSURE YOU ALL, my lovely Sparkers! I may update you all as far as my Vibrams go, here and there, or post a race report, but I really have to keep it all to a minimum...

Happy running! Happy working out! Keep moving forward and reaching for your goals, Sparkers!

  I don't think that makes you a slacker at all! Rather, I think it's quite nice. I don't feel SP was meant to be a life-long endeavour. We need it for a period of time but eventually grow stronger and beyond the need for consistence usage. You have accomplished much with so much more coming and this was just a stepping stone onto bigger and brighter things. Good luck with all that you have planned and I wish you the very best!

    LOTS of GOOD LUCK will your 2011 goals!!! I'm sure you'll ACE those tests and have the most beautiful garden on the block. I find gardening to be theraputic. As far as family...yes, they need you. I have 3 girls and I understand that mommy/wife commitment that needs to be fulfilled. THEY are MORE important than xtra SP/computer time! The little ones grow up fast and you don't want to look back and say I should've spent more time playing. Even if you allow yourself 20 min to spark, set a timer and when it dings...you log off.

We'll see you when you return.

Vibrams & Post-Marathon Update

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

Since my marathon almost 3 weeks ago, I've been able to jump back into my normal exercise routine, which feels GREAT!! My runs have been much shorter and less intense than during my marathon training (which they should be, I know), but as soon as I felt ready, I picked up my old schedule again, of getting out there Mon., Wed., Thurs., and Sat. Plus, last week, I added my ST back in.

Let me just note, I was also completely pain and discomfort free only 2 days after the marathon, which I was super surprised about. I thought I'd be hobbling along for at least a week! I really don't know how I got off so easily, but I did. Besides being dead tired for several days, my body felt fine.

Anyway, I have no idea what post-marathon depression is, let me tell ya, cuz if anything, I'm on FIRE about running! LOL. I don't really know why I haven't experienced a real downer, but I haven't.... Hmmmm.

My EATING has been BAD, BAD, BAD! That's gotta change. So I'm working on that this week, now that all the chocolate is outa my house, thankfully!!! Time to get down to bidness!!

NO MORE:
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

emoticon Went out for quite a distance with my Vibrams Saturday : 7 miles!! The run went well. I built in some walking here and there, which was needed. My calves did get quite tight throughout! But nothing really bad.

But after the run, on Sunday, I noticed some tenderness in my ankle/lower leg, so I ran in normal shoes on Monday. The discomfort is now gone, and I ran another 4 miles in my VFFs this morning. I think stretching out the calves is VITAL, and the foam roller works WONDERS getting the tightness out of my calves! So I'm definitely doing those....

So far, I think we are gettin' on pretty well, my Vibrams and I!

Have a great day, everyone! Happy running to all!!

    Good for you for getting out there so soon after the marathon. After rocking my first 15K back in November, I got the post-race blues. I'm bound and determined to not get them after the marathon!!

NYC_NATIVE 3/17/2011 12:36AM

    I think the post-marathon letdown stems from a few things, mostly from having been focused on that big goal for so long, and suddenly, not having that anymore. Which is why scheduling more races, or coming up w/new fitness goals, are so important!!!

Glad to hear you are doing great, too!

    I don't think what I had was "depression" after marathon #2... I think it was more simple exhaustion. I took a LONG time off, with just spotty runs here and there... plus we had Thanksgiving and Christmas during the "post-marathon" phase. Needless to say, when I did what little training I did do in late December and early January, my half marathon in mid January sucked, which motivated me to get back out there and do better. LOL
Way to go on getting back into the game! You're doing AWESOME!

Here are some details:
Event: 65. Paderborner Osterlauf
Where: Paderborn, Germany (west of Kassel)
When: April 23, 2011, the Saturday right before Easter
Distances: half marathon, 10 k, 5 k

If anyone, ANYONE is interested in this, PLEASE let me know!!

VIBRAMS!!!

Friday, March 11, 2011

Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh, someone help me!!!!! Running has consumed me, body and soul!! It's all I can think about! Someone please help me snap out of my crazy running stupor!!! LOL

So here's a quick VFF update.

Total Vibram miles: around 33.5 miles
Vibram miles in the past week: 14.3 miles
Longest run: 5 miles

I wore my VFFs last Saturday for my first *real* post-marathon run of 5 miles. Previously my longest run with them was 3.3 miles, so I knew 5 was crankin' it up a bit. Man, my calves were KILLIN' me on Sunday and Monday!!! But Monday, I took the VFFs again, which really loosened up the calves just as I'd hoped!

So each one of my runs has been with my VFFs this week! My runs have only been 5 km each this week. My calves are feeling good, and I have no other noticeable pain or discomfort. I started wearing the socks with them, due to some nippy temps, and they fit well too.

Tomorrow, I'm aiming to do a little bit longer of a run (6-7 miles), and we will see how that goes. Next week, I will start a more structured training plan aiming for my up-coming races. My goal is to fully transition to VFFs for my 30K in June, and maybe (?????????) for my July marathon, but that's a bit iffy. We will have to see, and safety is my main focus. So I'll be tuning in closely to how my body reacts....

Happy running, Sparkers! (Or happy whatever-you-do-for-exercise! emoticon) Get out there and ROCK it!!!!
