As some of you know I'm tackling with Achilles Tendonites in my left foot and I haven't been able to any miles or workout like I had since the end of June. Last month I started walking miles and doing easy workouts. My Achilles has been feeling so much better, so this week I started jogging. Monday I walked/jogged a mile and today I walked/jogged 2 miles. Achilles is holding up and I thank the power of prayer for my healing.... Wed, 9 Oct 2013 11:21:50 EST My Achilles... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5469601 Wow!!! I started walking last week after not being able to do anything since the end of July. I can honestly say my foot is doing GREAT!!! I noticed on Monday that it wasn't hurting as much. Tuesday it was feeling really good. Set up my preschool classroom. Walked & worked out with friends. Didn't have a single twitch or anything. A little heal pressure from my shoe, but NOTHING like what my achilles had felt like. I was on cloud nine and really itchin' to jog a little... but holding...

I've worn the boot for the last 2 weeks faithfully. My foot has been feeling pretty good while at home, so this weekend I tried walking in normal shoes. As long as I took to walking long distance slow and focused, foot felt pretty good. I used KT Tape yesterday while at church, seems to help some with the pressure of the shoes I was wearing. I am trying NOT to wear flip... Mon, 5 Aug 2013 13:37:33 EST Injured! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5421787 I come with not so good news... <BR> I have a Achilles Tendonitis in my left foot <em>39</em> I created the situation by wearing flip flops the whole time at Church Camp. It was so hot I didn't want to wear tennis shoes. I probably would have been better off going bare foot. So now I'm on crutches and using a walking boot until it feels better. Praying for a speedy recovery... <BR> <BR> Now I WILL have to be more strict on my eating, because I don't want to gain weight. As easy as it ...

Because I had trained for an event in the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon, my legs were pretty strong - BUT my upper body a whole different story. It's been 15 days now and the program has you re-take the 'Fit Test'. As results will show my upper body is getting stronger. The workouts are still pretty tough, BUT I'm pretty happy with the results thus far and in a weird kinda way I look forward to working out each day. Haven't felt lik...

I enjoyed every minute of it! I loved figuring out our workouts each night. My oldest son has decided to play baseball, so I had to cut FIT Camp 2 months short. It was a hard decision to make, but one everyone understood. Attendance had tapered off due to sports anyways. FIT Camp will continue through email and on Facebook. I am giving out weekly workout plans + we are going to have monthly weigh ins with prizes through the end of May. This is the best wa...

As some of you know I'm very involved with little league. Well...Saturday was my last & final home football game. My DH will not be running for any position, so it's time to move on. I'm excited about the new opportunities opening with the school football booster club and spending more time with my family. My son will be a Freshman next year and I feel we can really help make a difference with the school football program. Less stress, too. Little league i... Mon, 5 Nov 2012 14:35:27 EST Bootcamp Update... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5125004 October 24th was my last blog entry. Then, I was pretty frustrated with the group I was running with. That Friday the bootcamp instructor split our group up. I went to the advance group and the beginner's group she split some into an intermediate group. I asked to go to 'that' group and the instructor said “NO!” I love that she pushes me =) The following Monday was going to be my 1st time running with the advance group. I was pretty excited until I got a text Sunday evening asking us t... Mon, 5 Nov 2012 14:30:30 EST Another Bootcamp Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5111233 Oh SO Frustrated with bootcamp this morning!! Our bootcamp has 2 running groups...Advance & Beginner's. I opted for the beginner's group, because I hadn't ran in a while – so I didn't want to hurt myself. Our main bootcamp instructor really pushes us, where her helper not so much. It was up until 2 weeks ago the bootcamp helper would run with us on Monday's and the main instructor would run with us on Wednesday's. Now the helper has been running with us on Monday's and Wednesday's for th... Wed, 24 Oct 2012 12:48:17 EST Rejoicing Today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5101763 Had to worse scare EVER last night. Our Middle School Boys were playing in their last season game. They were playing Lexington and there they combine 8th & 9th graders to make 1 team. My son wasn't suppose to play due to his size (8th grd). He was very upset, but I told him just stick by the coach and see what happen. Again if you don't already know his position is Center. He weighs about 125lbs & is 5ft 2ins.. If you know anything about football OF COURSE they WILL put the BIGGEST nos...

Tue, 2 Oct 2012 17:39:18 EST 5K Today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5079642 I've been doing bootcamp for 6 weeks now and hadn't really pushed myself to run run. Our group does running segments on most Monday's and Wednesday's. Back in March of this year, I was dealing with pinched nerves in my back. It took almost 4 months to clear up and I wasn't allowed to exercise at all for 2 months in beginning. Bootcamp is doing wonders for me now. My back was bothering me a little when I started bootcamp, but nothing now. Body feels GREAT!!! <BR> <BR> A few days ago t...

It was an Awesome game!! Our boys scored first and from there they fought until the end to stay ahead. Us parents were so excited for them. I've probably wrote this before, but my son plays 'center' for the team. He did an amazing job!! Every snap was right on and quick!! We got home about 10:30pm...good thing this morning we were running, since I had to be up at 4am. Not much sleep...pretty tired...but I still feeling the excit...

I kinda know her, but we got off on the wrong foot during baseball season and hadn't really talked since. <em>48</em> to a fresh start. I hadn't had a partner for 2 weeks and I've really struggled with accountability. I'm excited!! I'm ready for this!! It's like the 1st day!

Left Friday for Joplin, MO to a youth conference with some middle schoolers. The conference was at Ozark Christian College, very nice place with LOTS of stairs. When we left to come back home on Saturday we explored some of the area that was effected by the tornado 1yr 1/2 ago. Not very much rebuilt. There were still buildings that hadn't been torn down. Very sad and humbling. <BR> <BR> Finished up week 4 of bootcamp with bring a buddy on Friday. I ...

We had a good group this morning, about 1/2 showed up. That means the other half have to do 150 burpees. I rather run then do burpees again. Tomorrow is going to be a kick butt kinda day. Preschool starts tomorrow on top of doing calisthenics early in the morning. Gotta get to bed early early tonight. <BR> <BR> Mon, 3 Sep 2012 08:18:06 EST Resting... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5041448 I completed the bootcamp challenge yesterday of 150 burpees. Phew!! It was tough. I did 10 at a time about every hour or so. Started at 9:30am and finished around 8:30pm. My arms were pretty sore along with my abs. Abs have been pretty sore while doing some exercises that the instructor has had to modify some of them for me. Most of the burpees I did without the push up and at the end I did the cobra stretch, which seem to get me through the day. Today my abs aren't as sore. May star...

Mostly worked our legs, some arms and defiantly our abs. <BR> <BR> She asked us today, "why are we doing bootcamp?" <BR> I'm doing bootcamp, because I'm tired of being overweight.

With much hesitation and talking with the instructor I opted to started with the beginner group. Baby steps to not getting hurt and not being able to run/walk at all. It was perfect this morning. My legs felt great. My back felt great. My sheen's are a little prickly, but all in all I made the best choice. The instructor had me stay in the back, so when we did a bonus 15 sec sprint at the end...it felt GREAT to just run... <BR> <BR> Not sure what's in s...
