Many of you have followed my brief love affair with my friend, Mr. Boot. I even shared with you how the gym betrayed me when I developed workout injuries, in the form of Achilles Tendonitis. Now I want you to say hello to my little friend Senorita Cast! She is dazzling, she is a royal hue, and she’s coming to a foot near you. Ok, not near you foot but mine. She needed a dramatic entrance.
Well, here she is. Are you ready? Tada!
QUEEN SPARKLES? PURPLE PEOPLE EATER?
As most of you have probably guessed I didn’t get the news I was hoping for today. Mr. Boot will be so disappointed. My doctor put me in a cast for 4-6 weeks! Friends have already given me the lovely nickname of “Boot.” (Thanks, Dave) I can’t wait to see what they come up with next. I hope they get creative. Purple People Eater, the Purplenator, Queen Sparkles.
If I could go back in time, I would really kick myself in the butt for not stretching. Who knew it was so important? Obviously I would have to go back in time because I am not kicking much of anything right now. (Except for kicking back and sitting my fat butt on a couch)
THANK GOODNESS FOR WAHM AND HOMESCHOOL
On the positive side, I am blessed to work from home and homeschool my children so my husband doesn’t have to take off from work because I can’t drive. I am also TRULY blessed with some amazing friends that don’t mind carting me around to appointments and to run errands. You know, the kind that REFUSE to take gas money. (Hint: Stick it in their glove box, and they can’t say no!)
Being forced to slow down has really given me a LOT of time to reflect on life, kids, writing, and other things I have just been too frazzled to think about. Even though, I am not to sure how my relationship with Senorita Cast is going to go I am thankful that it has caused me to have to slow down enough to pay attention.
INJURED? CAN’T WORK OUT? I THINK NOT!
Oh, before I forget. I am going to be writing a fabulous post about how to exercise while injured! I have a fabulous friend down in Florida that is a personal trainer. Yep, she makes a hobby of making people cry and they PAY her for it! (Now, THAT is a job!) She’s going to work with me on a workout routine that people with injuries can do. Just because you are injured doesn’t mean you can get that rockin’ body! Really excited for that, so stay tuned!
