I’ve been missing but not truly, sometimes life is the normal day to day things and then I have nothing to really share with you. Sometimes a small thing happens in the day and I think….I should blog that but then maybe several things shall commence and I’ll wait.
Life is a journey for sure, my kids have a daily journey as the life of a child and dealing with all the things associated with being a child, getting older, exploring life and boundries. They are having a really hard time with this weather and the crabbies have entered our house 10 fold.
Me, well, journey continues as always. I had an awesome time at the Zumbathon for Budda Box and managed to reach my goal of 100 participants. Still continue to teach several classes a week and love every minute of it. I am going to venture into the journey of R.I.P.P.E.D next week and I’m very excited. It’s a 60 day challenge and hope to come out of it stronger and leaner.
I spent last Saturday celebrating my 1 year Zumbaversary. Silly as it sounds I was licensed to teach 1 year ago. It has been an amazing journey of new friends, somewhat understanding family and my body who said “you need to slow down.” So I taught a pretty tough (in my opinion, HRM said 675 calories burned) playlist that morning and spent 3 hours that afternoon with Krista at Zin Jam Session in Sun Prairie. It was an afternoon of constant movement and although fun and a great experience, My body was done (HRM calculated 1,187 calories), I got home Saturday and had nothing left…literally, my foot hurt, my body sore. I took a shower and sat on the couch. Sunday my body still was not moving I still had nothing to give, managed to grocery shop and took K to Guys and Dolls. A very nice musical but too long for an 8 year old and it was super hot in the auditorium so I was fighting sleep through the whole thing.
I tried my best to muster energy to attend Zumba Sunday night. As Heather can tell you I had nothing and looked like I could collapse into a nap. My HRM attested as an hour of Zumba grabbed me 425 calories burned when a normal class, I don’t teach, gets me 550.
I managed to great nights of sleep and felt fantastic on Monday morning. Raring to go, grabbed Ivan and off we went. Great class, great energy, great friends, felt fantastic. Came home, did some normal things. Sat down and the computer to work on somethings and…BODY SHOCK…
The bottom of my right foot started to itch, so I itched it and continue what I was doing. Then it really itched and as I itched it a felt a HUGE welt and as I turned my foot over it’s swelling and the welt is black and blue and it hurts!. Really, how do you get an injury sitting still. May was I ticked. I needed to teach class in Harrisville in 1.5 hours how was I going to do this as I could not step with out a very uncomfortable feeling…UGH – class cancelled and I don’t cancel for anything. I’ve taught through pnemonia, bronchitis, torn ankle tendon and a bicep tare. But, I couldn’t put a shoe on and could not walk comfortably so off to Urgent Care. The short version of Urgent Care is…wow that is a pretty color and swollen but we have not idea what is wrong with you. If it’s the same in the morning go see a podiatrist. That was after a 2 hour wait. Grrrrr
I have an appt. today at 12:30. The bruise is twice the size of yesterday along with the knot inside the bruise. Still swollen but I can put a tennis shoe on and walk comfortably, not so much in barefeet or sandals. My body tends to lean on the side of injury to slow me down as I HATE, down time, I’m getting older and I don’t want to. So, we’ll see what the Dr. says today. Hopefully something really simple like ice, ibuprofen and a day of rest. I need to teach on Wednesday and Thursday 🙂
Have a great day. Sun is partially shining atleast.
