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.
Stay safe!

I am off to shop with my girlfriends in a warm heated mall!

    Love the cartoons! I can't believe how cold it is there, you are more than welcome to come hide in California with me. :D So sorry to hear about your wrist, I can't believe the doctor didn't even look at it. What a joke! It seems the answer is always "here just take this medication" and it's frustrating! I am so sorry about your baby toe! You are proof that you are strong and nothing can keep you down! Everyone has some excuse of why they can't do something, and you aren't letting any of these legitimate t hings keep you down, what an inspiration! :D

    My inspiration comes from everyone here in the Spark community. Every day I stumble upon people who are pushing through, overcoming obstacles similar to my own, and having success. That keeps me going! I've come to realize that the only thing holding me back from reaching my own goals is myself. But if everyone else can do this, I can too! It's chilly in New Brunswick, but no snow yet. Great post! emoticon

    You are too funny! Love the image of the shivering man. It's lovely here in Newfoundland - our two inches of snow has melted and it's fairly warm out. Weird, isn't it!

    Ouch! Your poor wrist and now your toe. I'm amazed that the doctor didn't even look at your wrist. Is it possible something is broken?

    Last night we were back at the emergency ward and they called my husbands name so we went in. Got inside and they said that nobody had called us. People in the waiting room vouched for us as they heard his name as well. A few minutes later a nurse came out and got mad because John didn't go on as called! Gotta wonder sometimes!

    Hope your shopping goes well!,
