Good morning my friends!
I haven't had much time of late to do a blog or anything. So this will be a short update on whats been happening around here.
Well first off I am freezing my buns off!
We have had snow for a couple of weeks now, but this morning woke up to temperatures of -20*C / -4*F. It has been a little blizzard here yesterday, and now the cold!
Send me some of your warm weather! Or better yet a plane ticket to the beach! Yes!!
Well trying to stay warm I am still doing my boxing class's.
I unfortunately did something to my hand 3 weeks ago where I can't twist my wrist. I can still do pushups and punch straight on, so have not missed a class.
I am persevering.
Went to the Doctor and she never even looked at it. Just prescribed me a topical anti-inflammatory and pain killer.
I dont' understand how they can even 'know' without actually checking. Let's say I am not getting better and the pain is increasing.
Then to top it off I kicked the can.
I stubbed my toe on the garbage can and think I have broken my baby toe.
The pain is high on the Richter scale.
I need to exercise.
I need to lose weight.
Basically I just need to MOVE.
So I worked out at home in the snowstorm with my injuries not stopping me.
I walked on the Treadmill, S-L-O-W.
I had to.
I had to walk my way through the pain of my toe, it eventually went numb and I could walk faster, but I walked an hour and felt good afterwards.
I then decided I needed to lift weights.
Most of the exercises I could do without pain in my hand, as I made sure to keep my wrist immobile.
Squats / Deadlifts / Rows / Shoulder press / Biceps / Triceps
All with weights.
All I can say is nothing is going to stop me (except myself and I am not allowing that to happen).
I watched one of my taped episodes of 'EXTREME WEIGHT-LOSS' with Detective Bob Brenner and it is so inspiring to me. This one was where he had both knees pop and give out. Did he stop? NO. He even didn't stop for surgery that was how strong his commitment was.
Now that is someone I truly admire for his dedication and commitment.
I am hoping to continue strong and try to emulate his dedication.
So what is holding you back? Who is your inspiration?
I would be truly interested to know.
Love and hugs my friends.
I am off to shop with my girlfriends in a warm heated mall!
