Another challenge to face

Well last night I bumped in to my new plyometric box and broke my toe! I knew right away it was broken. I saw stars for a moment. I thought maybe 3 of them were crushed, but the X-ray confirmed only one.

With that being said, I will have to modify my workouts tremendously. Kind of bummed since I was just starting to enjoy my freedom again.

I believe the saying, "What doesn't kill you will only make you stronger". Maybe some how I will end up stronger with this little bump in the road.

I broke two of my'll be able to walk in about 5 days....I taped the ones broken to ones not broken, ice it when you are sitting...and you'll be able to pistol in about 13 weeks. I was back running after 2 weeks.....only thing I noticed is that the toes I broke...don't quite flatten out as the ones I didn't flip flops were my best friends :)

happy healing. Regina

Thanks Regina!

Yeah it isn't as bad as I thought it would be. I went for a 45 minute walk today while pushing the stroller. It was a little sore afterwards.

This is nothing compared to when I broke my foot and had to be on crutches. Thank god!

That sucks! I hope it heals ultra fast! Take tons of essential fats (fish oil, flax oil) and some systemic enzymes to aid the healing process. According to the experts, WOBENZYME is an excellent product for systemic enzymes.

Thanks for the tip. I'll definitely have to try that. I'm taking the Flaxseed oil but I may have to add some fish oil as well. Luckily I am still able to walk around and do lots of kettlebell swings.

What Doctor's don't tell you after a C-section

I have now been through 2 C-sections since writing this blog post and thankfully I've recovered beautifully from both with the appropriate progressions. For those who are new and are just finding me. WELCOME! First let me say I did NOT want a C-section. I did everything in my power to avoid the first and even the second. I'm a kettlebell fitness strength and conditioning coach who relies on her body to share, teach, educate, and I was under the impression that having to give birth via C-section would and could destroy my body and career. Boy was I wrong! If you're feeing the same way, start by reading this article I wrote many years ago that still applies today! Many people have asked and here is part of my experience.  I don't claim to be a medical expert but not only have I successfully healed my C-section, my abdominals are no longer numb, and I've successfully helped others who've had multiple C-sections (even some 20 years ago) find their core aga

5 Year Blog Anniversary and Giveaway

My blog was born March 10th of 2007, 5 years ago, with this  post  that started it all.  It all started 6 weeks after giving birth to my first baby.  The purpose of this blog was to share my journey of embarking as a new mother recovering from a C-section, lost strength, and fitness.  I wanted to share my struggles and perseverance in getting back to my pre-pregnancy self all while enjoying my new road in to motherhood.  I felt this was an easy and convenient way for friends and family that live all over the world, to see photos of my children and updates about our life.  What an amazing experience it  has been for me.  I never thought blogging my experiences would turn in to so much more.  Through my blogging I got the chance to connect with so many wonderful people around the world.  I never fully understood how powerful the stories would effect so many people.   It's truly been an honor.  Being able to continue to drive motivation and hope in to someones life by sharing my life
