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!
So Crunchy peeps, what nickname would you give my cast? The reader with the best nickname will win a $25 Amazon.com gift card! Ready, set, go! Just leave a comment on the BLOG post!
