I bet you didn't know I knew Spanish! ;-) Muy poquito, my friends. I took Spanish in high school but I'm hoping to learn more while I'm studying to become a Nutritionist!
So, some of you may remember a few weeks ago...um, four weeks to be exact, I was experiencing some heel and Achilles pain in my left foot. I was terrified that it was Achilles Tendinitis so I immediately stopped running and most activities besides walking. I iced it multiple times a day, rested as much as humanly possible and it still ached! So I emailed a fellow runner/blogger friend who has been recovering from an Achilles injury which took her out of running for over a year and a half! Her advice helped me so much! I no longer have tenderness or pain in my Achilles, only slight tenderness in my heel.(Thanks, Kristy!) I put heel lifts in my shoes and I added a tennis ball to my recovery routine. I roll out the bottom of my feet a couple times a day just in case it was a slight case of Plantar Fascitis. I didn't see a doctor because the insurance we have is garbage, sorry to put it that way, but it is; and it's just about impossible to see a good doctor these days for ANYTHING. *stepping down from the soap box*

I talked to a representative for Ashworth Online College and they are indeed an Accredited College. I will be in touch with them within the next few weeks after we find out if my husband got the job he interviewed for last week! I'm so excited to start a new journey into the health and fitness field! I'm ready for a change and looking forward the future!
Like I said before, I'm ok with not being able to run these days. Believe it or not, I'm actually enjoying doing other things! I'm loving the elliptical and I have even incorporated weights into my workouts! No I don't want to be She-Hulk. I have realized a big difference in my lower half now that I do squats and calf raises with dumbbells. I've also been using leg machines and I love them!
Right now I'm loving anything positive and uplifting! My husband and I are working on keeping any negative talk out of our conversations. If it's something negative and we aren't going to benefit from talking about it, don't even mention it. Sometimes we slip but we're pretty good about saying, "ok, enough of that. Think positive thoughts." Life is so much more enjoyable when you focus on the good. This sums up the way I'd like to live:
Enjoy your weekend everyone!
