 What a rollercoaster of a day!!!  I woke up early today.  I felt refreshed from a good night’s sleep (getting to bed early just like I planned).  I had my green smoothie with spinach, mango, blueberries, whey, psyllium, flax seed and wheat germ (Breakfast of Champions).  I packed my gym bag and headed to the Tuesday nursing home.  All was going according to plan!!  I had a patient sing to me..”You are my Sunshine, my only Sunshine.  You make me happy, when skies are gray.  you never know, dear, how much I love you.  Please don’t take my Sunshine away!!”  She had a Beautiful voice!!  I was going from room to room, doing my thing when I ran into a new rehab patient.  She  had neuropathy.  I began to debride her nails and I noticed that her big toe had dried blood on the tip.  I cleansed the area to find the source of the drainage and I noticed that she was missing the tip of her toe.  There was a steel pin exposed from a bunion surgery performed 20 years ago!!  The patient denied any trauma to the toe.  She couldn’t feel her feet so she was completely UNAWARE that the pin worked its way through the tissue.  I had to inform her of the status of her toe.  I have wound consults all the time, but I was consulted to see her for diabetic nail care!!  This was yet ANOTHER wake up call for me!!  I’m YOUNG and HEALTHY and it will ALL change IF I DON’T get the weight off and live a healthier lifestyle!! 

Still keeping to my plan, I went to my NM office, did a little paperwork, changed clothes and I was OFF TO THE GYM!!!  I did a KILLER lower body/core routine (generated by dailyburn.com and revised by moi) I felt STRONG!!!! After which, I slid into the last 20 min of a spin class!!!  (I must RE-Introduce my BOOTY to the SPINNING BIKE SEAT!!!  This was a Hills spin class so I was out of the saddle for most of the ride!!! YIPEE!!  I just wish the spin bikes had a distance reading OR than my Garmin could record a stationary bike!!!  Unfortunately, neither are true….

I went home, took a shower and began to make dinner for my WEEKLY Biggest Loser Par-Tay!!!  Spaghetti:  Wheat Pasta, ground turkey breast, and a killer salad!!! 

 This Biggest Loser episode was the “marathon” episode!!!  So much fun tweeting with my Biggest Loser Tweethearts!!!  I’m going to do a post with their blog links next week for the finale!  😉  Had a few tweets from @Tara_Costa (Who held the BL marathon record before last night) and @Ali_Sweeney who took it like a champ when I asked her if one of her tweets was english!!!  LOL!!!  We laugh, cry and even workout OR should I say #Tworkout during commercial breaks of Biggest Loser as @AprilShowrs of @shrinkingjeans tweets out exercises for us to do after 9 PM!!!  #GoodTimes  Watching the marathon unfold last night brought up strong emotions!!!  Exciting memories of watching Trish and Jenn of @FitBottomedGirl run their marathon in Jan. Excitement for Lori @slorunnermom who will be running her VERY FIRST MARATHON on 10/10/10 in Chicago with US, her Blackberry hearts cheering her on!!! (Yes, we ALL are planning to be there!!)  Some things were said to me via blackberry that made me think…I will dedicate a future post to that topic!! (Stay Tuned)

The Proudest, most Touching moment for me, last night was when former Biggest loser contestants were meeting the runners on the route to run with current contestants and give them support and encouragement!!!  @Ali_Sweeney Tweeted :  “Who would you want to run with you? #BL9”  to My SURPRISE….This tweet popped on my screen….

Slorunnermom: no hesitation I’d want @FitInMyHeart  🙂 RT @Ali_Sweeney: Who would you want to run with you? #BL9

Ahhhhhhh…….(That’s me exhaling) Ive finally kicked this cold/flu thing that was dragging me down! Now, I’m ready to “Get Back In The Game” and kick my Fitness “Butt” into HIGH GEAR!!! People have always referred to me as a “Workout Machine”. Taking a “FORCED” fitness hiatus made me realize just how much I love the way Living the “Health and Wellness” lifestyle makes me feel!!

Ive decided to go out of 2009 WITH A BANG and enter into 2010 SWINGING!!!! Once I made this decision, I needed to get my FITNESS ARMOR Together! Sooooooo…. what are some of the things that I have in my “Bag of Tricks” To help me reach my goals?!?!? I thought you would never ask!!

First things first……. Being a PODIATRIST, I must have on a Great Pair of comfortable, supportive shoes!! My Shoe of Choice Is A New Balance! My feet are mega flat and kinda wide. I’m also “Pleasantly Plump” and these shoes are some of the best Shock Absorbers around!! (Gotta protect my knees)

Next “Weapon” is my “GoWearFit” gowearfit.com (Body Bugg with sleep analysis). My friends @KyraTX and @Fitter_Mandy brought this little gem to my attention. I’m a Total Gadget Girl! This device tells me EVERYTHING I need to know about my calories in vs. my calories out. It also tells me how many steps I take (built in pedometer) and how many calories I need to burn daily to reach my goal by a set date. It also tells me how well I’m sleeping….Or should I say how poorly I’m sleeping! (I’ve averaging 49% on my sleep…NOT GOOD!!) In order for this gadget to be accurate, I must input my daily food items. This brings me to my next gadget.

I keep my daily food and water intake in my “FITBOOK” fitbook.com @Bwjen told me about this awesome, affordable fitness goal “Helper” It is the cutest most complete food/fitness/emotion/goal/measurement tracker out there!!

I “LIVE” for the camaraderie of “Like Minded Individuals” that I find at the gym!! I’m a total “Gym-Rat” like @MizFitOnline and @Chubby_Stubby_K I LOVE to feel the BURN of that last rep to failure!!! I love machines, I love the free-weights, I love the classes (especially spinning, kickboxing, and Zumba)…..Not yoga so much but I’m trying! (Did you hear that Tami?!? @widfirefitness) My gym doesn’t have NIA that @foodiemcbody loves so much but maybe in 2010, it will make an appearance on the roster!! *fingers crossed*

Sometimes, I’m unable to get to the gym. When that happens, or I need a QUICK kick in the booty, I Just Look to my old Pal Jillian Michaels!! Her #30DayShred DVD is NO JOKE!!!!! Just ask @TeeTee_71, @Phatbff, @Pseymour, @Biggestloserlvr, or @Jeepjenn!! They will tell ya!!! SHE WILL MAKE YOU CRY IN 20 MIN…..OR LESS!!!

Of course….My Life is ONE BIG MUSIC VIDEO….. at least in my head! LOL! I always have my ipod on my hip!! One of the artists that Inspires me and Keeps me PUMPED is My girl JANET JACKSON!!!!! I’m ready to take “CONTROL” Of my Life…..THE TIME IS NOW!!!

One “Piece Of Armor” That without which NOTHING, FOR ME, Is POSSIBLE…..is my BIBLE! I turn to it for STRENGTH….In Good times and the Bad!! People often ask me “How do you stay so happy?”……THIS IS WHY!!!

So that, in a nutshell, is what I’m going to use to take me TO AND THROUGH MY FITNESS GOALS!!! Oh ya…..There is one more “Thing” I need…..That Thing is…..YOU!!! One of THE BEST THINGS TO COME INTO MY FUN FILLED LIFE IS MY TWITTER FAMILY!!! The SUPPORT, MOTIVATION, INSPIRATION, DEDICATION, & LOVE I feel FROM and FOR YOU is truly One of my MOST PRECIOUS BLESSINGS!! Thank You ALL!! From the bottom of my Heart….I LOVE YOU!!!

So please….no matter where you are in your fitness journey….no matter what you’re going through….YOU’RE NOT ALONE!!!!! Let’s LOCK HANDS and REACH OUR GOALS……TOGETHER!!!!! 2010……HERE “WE” COME!!! 😉
