Moving Forward

Monday, October 06, 2014

Here I go... I broke down and went to the foot doctor on Sept 11th. It was confirmed that I have bone spurs in both feet at the back of the heel at the end of my achilles. My right foot is worse then my left. The doctor said I had to stop running/walking outdoors and I had to do only low-impact workouts... ugh, kinda figured he would tell me I wasn't allowed to run anymore, but to actually hear it was hard to take. He told me to do 1 stretch everyday 3 times for 15 mins for the next 30 days. Well, I've been doing that stretches and haven't exercised as much and my feet feel a Whole Lot better. I can actually touch the backs of my heels and not cringe. I do flexing motions before getting out of bed and I can actually walk somewhat normal and with little pain. It excites me to feel progress, but not being able to workout like I had has taken a toll mentally. The past 3 weeks I got to where I just didn't care and ate whatever whenever.

Jerome M... Team Leader of the Make It Happen team has been posting on Facebook that has been hitting home the past few days. I'm coming to the end of my 30 days with doing what the doctor suggested and it's time to make a change...
I Need to move forward...
I Need to quit making excuses...
I Need to quit using my injury as an excuse...
I Need to find my way again...

I pushed around thoughts on joining a gym instead of buying home equipment to help in my recovery and to help me move forward. I have some friends that own Impact Nutrition in Newcastle, OK and a few of their kids attend our preschool. Last week they brought a flyer in about a 3 month challenge which included a gym membership for 3 months. That got me excited, because I was just talking to my husband about joining one... and to do it with people I knew I thought it would motivate me and doing this challenge will motivate me + my running buddies planned on joining with me. We signed up yesterday and I became their Wellness Coach - Oh talk about pressure, I don't want to fail them. But this, I feel will give me the motivation in helping Me move forward. The 3 month challenge starts Today!

After a long discussions on our needs as a team and as individuals yesterday... I will be texting my team every morning and through out the day until the end of October. As a Team Leader for the OKC Team I am going to post to a thread every morning and will blog as well. I'm NOW excited about moving forward and again helping others do the same.

No matter where You are at in Your journey it's OK to start over every single day JUST don't EVER give up. Keep pushing until You find Your pace. Take each day as it's own and Own It!
