Desire is strong, patience is short./Not losing site of goal with Amy

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

I have been really busy this weekend. So I am going to write my blog in 2 parts. So you get 2 for 1.
Part 1.
Therapy has been working. My foot feels so good. Or so much better than it was before. I want to run. I want to join couch to 5k. Which I will not until I get the ok.
I have hurt for so many months, that the improvements that I am feeling in my foot makes me feel that I can do anything!!! I want to go for it. I am not patient. I want to run and do a 5k so i know that i can do it!
Amy has been dealing with aches and pains. I feel so bad. I know that her fibro and her desire to run has caused her some aches and pains. So inside grows a fear. Fearing injuring yourself so that you can not go further.... This brings me to Saturdays dilema for me. WE have a big boat. There are bigger boats, but it is a 33 foot cabin cruiser. It is in our yard and Saturday's job was to get the inside ready for the trip to the ocean this week. So I go to climb on the back platform and I fall off. I fell 4 feet off a ladder and landed on my back. I layed there crying because it hurt like heck, but I was crying too because i did not want to hurt myself so I could not go forward with this trialthon. Dana and the girls came running out to me. they checked me out and helped me out. My right side is sore, but nothing is broken except my pride. So sunday I was sore as heck, but I am ok. I went to the gym and got a good work out in. But i could really understand how Aims is feeling. She is so strong, but the fear of hurting so you can't go forward is a true concern for anyone. I have gained patience from this. And my Physical therapist told me I am not ready to run yet. NO. so I will listen. Give me patience!!!
Part 2 of my blog for the day.
Not losing site of my goal with Amy.
AMYJEANHEALTHY, Aims, is my weight loss buddy. We are sister(in-laws), we used to be sabatours. We have moved past this point and we are each others biggest cheerleaders now. I could not do this with out her. We have both lost 33 plus pounds since January.
So this spring we did the biggest loser challenge, boot camp, and we have been climbing mountains. Mount Monadnock and Mount Watatic. Now we have both signed up to do the Sprint Triathlon together. I had posted on Sparkpeople about doing this. But Amy posted it on Facebook. So then I did so that my family and friends could see that we are in this together. Now here lies the challenge. Amy and I have done this together. WE have set goals and enjoyed reaching them together. WE have pushed each other. We have been there for each other. Now people are asking to join us in this next accomplishment. I have mixed feelings. I do not mind my friends doing this. More people to cheer us on and encourage us. But I do not want to lose site of what this means to Amy and I. This is our next big milestone in our weight loss journey and our journey to good health.
Amy We are doing this one challenge at a time.
You are the best..
And we deserve this!!!
We will finish this together!

    It is natural for people to want what you and Amy have. But it is up to the two of you to decide if you are ready to open up your relationship to others. I can't advise for you, but you two will need to make that choice - and whether it's just the two of you or then entire Eastern Seaboard, I will support you and cheer for you from the west coast!
