Thank you for the encouragement. I've had a sinus infection going on for a week now, they are going to let me test on 01/31/11. I know I can do it, I just get psyched out sometimes. I like to drive, my station just dropped the CDL requirement, I have EVOC and Pump class, and I am thinking hard about concentrating my talents there. A few of us took a great Drive To Survive class on Monday night, very interesting.

Beth,

Nice to meet a FF from WPA! I am a Safety Officer for New Kensington FD with 38 years service. I'm not sure if one week of workouts will get you back in shape, but you do have other ways to take advantage. Experience is a great teacher. I have seen young FFs blow through a tank of air in no time because they got too excited and rushed around like crazy, dropping tools, making errors, etc.. If you take your time, and think through the actions you need to do and then do them, you will do well...remember slow is smooth, and smooth is fast!

Good Luck!
Tom

Hi, my name is Josh. I'm in the process of trying to break into the EMS field to work my way into a fire department in the St. Louis area.

My goal with Sparkpeople is to increase my overall health so that I can more fully enjoy my life with my kids as the years come and go, and I want to be in the best possible shape when I have a chance to go through the fire academy.

I'm determined to make this happen!

Hey all! I'm Sara, a 23 year old firefighter/paramedic. I was on my volunteer department back home in Wisconsin for a few months before my boyfriend and I moved to North Dakota. I'm currently working as a dispatcher, but am looking to get back on the box or a fire department. My goals are to lose some weight, to pack on some muscle, and to be in shape enough to take a CPAT and go full-time somewhere for fire!

Mayah's (my Siberian Husky) new brother (a golden retriever resscue) needs your prayer's. Sonny and Mayah bonded quickly, we just got him Wednesday night. I took him to the vet today because he wasn't eating, he was puking the tiny bit he ate last night and had aweful diarrhea. But drinking plenty of water but obviously losing energy over the past couple days. Well he tested positive for parvo!!! He is now at a vet hospital being treated and the both vets that looked at him were optimistic because he was still wagging his tail at everyone and wasn't dehydrated, yet. It looks like he probably got it from the shelter he was at. He is about 6-7 months old and was scheduled to be put down on Wednesday but was saved by my pet trainer at Petsmart. He has to make it through this so he can be a famous search and rescue dog to go in Aunt Vicki's book (the pet trainer).
I just hope he knows that I didn't take him there to leave him. I don't want him to get depressed and give up. So I work a 24 tomorrow at the station and I'm making a trip to the vet to go see him!!! and Justin iis going by sometime too.

Oh and you'd be proud of me. Monday the 10th, some nice lady gave me some bricks for my yard. It ended up being about 3/4 - 1 ton of bricks. I filled up my truck, then brought them home & unloaded. Whew what a workout! Took 4 1/2 hours!!

Don't feel bad Erin. I'm going through the same thing. I go to eat lunch and nothing looks good. I usually end up drinking my slim fast so I've got something in my system or eating a power bar.

It sounds like you had a hell of a day. Glad you are ok.

I had to erase what I wrote originally because I don't want any misunderstandings or hurt feelings from folks who take this out of context or just don't have a clue what we do (paid or volunteer). What I can say is, people sometimes do stupid things to get themselves hurt. We can only hope that a lesson is learned from the experience.

I hope your week gets better.

Wow is all I can say about yesterday! I was home and Justin had just walked in the door with me some hot Arby's! I was home... not on shift, that didn't start til 8pm. But.... I volunteer for the HHART team, High Angle Rescue Team. We got a call with bordering county fire department. Tallulah Gorge is were probably 90% of our calls are. So glad I moved north... only about 10 mins away now. here is a link if you love the outdoors and want a new location to visit...
www.gastateparks.org/Tallulah
Anyways.... a group of 4, 20 y/o guys went to the gorge floor and were climbing up. They all had the appropriate gear for what they were doing and the lead climber (pt) was doing everything right. Except wearing a helmet. There are two ways to fall when climbing, panicked/nervous or calm. Calm/knowledgeable is when you know your gonna fall you push away from the wall so the ropes keep tension on your harness and don't have a chance to tangle in your legs. and the nervous fall is where you try to cling to the wall and frantically cling for a new grip and ropes are most likely to tangle in legs as you fall and sling you into the rock wall.... wearing no helmet killed him. without telling his story in detail those are the two ways to fall. We made a lowering system and sent two guys down to asses, a medic and HART member. we used about 400+ of our 600 ft rope main line to get to the gorge floor to where the GSP chopper could lift him out. I had a serious workout.

DNR ranger said that area was the rattle snakes favorite place... glad he said that as I was walking out. It was tick heaven too.... found one trying to latch on while coiling rope.

So I had a busting dehydrated headache for the next 4 hours. the call lasted about 4 hours including clean up and debriefing.

then I had to go to work for my 12 hour shift at the FD. blah!

GA state law to wear helmet on motorcycles, bicycles, but not rappelling or climbing? retarded!!! would have saved his life, we would have just been dealing with an altered LOC.

So frustrating!!!!

Dang girl! I drove to Rainbow City AL Friday afternoon and helped sis move in her house she bought and clean her apartment to get her deposit back. Then drove back home Sunday afternoon. 4.5 hour drive... stunk bad... my hip hated the trip there. i didn't stop at all. I made myself stop and walk around twice on way back. I think I'm finally on back track losing some weight. Blah it's about darn time.

I've been looking for work since June of 2009 with no luck. It's ok, it gives me more time to get the house straight and play with my animals.

Which proposition did you like? Erin moving here or us moving to Tennessee?? :)

Move closer to me and you can workout with me doing the Billy Blanks Boot Camp Elite stuff with me. And then on the other 2-3 days of the week we can walk the dogs for a few miles. Then you can join my firehouse and we can workout on the Bowflex there together :) Come on Erin...it's time for a change!

Or we can both move to Tennessee....

Erin, don't feel bad...I did the same thing. I got a little lazy about my eating habits and gained a few pounds back. Plus I'm cutting down on my smoking, which is not helping either.

We can do this together! Let me know when you need help and I will kick you in the butt!

Good job Erin! I'm back to doing my regular Billy Blanks Boot Camp workout 3x/week. I took Monday off this week because I was having an issue with a food allergy that messed up my stomach.

I did a Jillian Michaels' circuit. I'm going to hurt tomorrow. I had my captain do it with me. He implemented 30 mins cardio each shift, so.... his butt go whooped too. I had intended to do the cardio P90x but forgot it at home. I haven't tried the Plyometrics yet. might have to try that one.

ERINLINDZ:

How about trying the Cardio or Plyometrics P90X workout?

I love the Plyometrics one: even if you do 1/2 today and 1/2 tomorrow, it will be a start.

Let me know how you get yourself to movin!

Yesterday I did my first complete Tae Bo Boot Camp workout. (First since I got re-injured Labor Day weekend). Recovery has been slow, but it felt so good to do the workout. AND I moved furniture all over my house. I feel great!

Flexeril...like a mini-quaalude. I hate not being in control of my faculties, so I took those on a rare occasion.

I did another SP video today! The kickboxing one too! I feel GREAT!!!

I finally tried one of the many SP mini workout videos the other day. It was fantastic! I'm working my way back to my regular routine with the help with SP!

I'm glad you survived your Wilderness class. An A? You're awesome! I was up on the roof because I'm much smaller and less likely to damage the roof. Plus I figured since it is my house, I ought to fix the issue. I know, I'm stubborn!

Erin, I'm glad you had the willpower to do the Fast. I know I wouldn't be able to do it. I have to have pasta & rice - it's what I was raised on, being Sicilian. I do eat a lot of veggies to counteract the carbs. I eat very few sweets. I am just starting to exercise again. My knees are still bothering me a bit.

Justin - Way to go!!!

I'm not doing P90X. I did a combo of Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred and some Walk Away The Pounds the 3 weeks before my PAT. The cardio definitely helped, but I still wasn't nearly as prepared as I should have been. I think that when I get into my rhythm of my gym workouts and start feeling better about it, I may add in some P90X here and there. The workouts look fantastic.

80/20 % rule. If your good at 80 % of the time u r allowed 20% to eat what u want but still in moderation.
Of course if u do the fast at least stick to it strictly for at least 7 days so u see the results. Its awesome! Sorry im on my phone typing this so its quick.
Dont stress to much on your diet intake. U dont need those stress horomones...

If u fail to plan then u plan to fail! Very valuable thought when trying to stick to something. Helped me thru the fast.

Good luck

That's awesome JustinJH! And it's just around the corner! Are you doing P90X, too?

Erin: I want to try the Fast but I don't know when I'll try it. I have to confess that I'm very very interested in making Jamaican Beef Patties.... I got a recipe I'm just dying to make them. It has almost everything that I shouldn't eat. I think this could be one of my big downfalls... I'll report on whether I make the patties or get (daniel) fast food.

Hope everyone is doing well!
