Give Me Everything

It’s been a great week!  There has been such an uptick in plotlines, that I feel like I just got to the good part of a really slow-paced novel.

I have had so many firsts that I’m trying to figure out where to begin.  So I’ll give you the best news, the most exciting of all news!  I started JOGGING on the treadmill.  Yes, friends and followers.  Suzy Carney is now a jogger!  Now, I will stipulate that I don’t jog for very long, but the legs are working again!  The last time I was jogging/running was on a treadmill in The Mirage gym in Vegas on Tuesday, August 2nd.  4 months and 1 day.  But, who’s counting?  Uh, I am!

On December 3, I was feeling really energized after a fun night out in the city with my family for Katie and David’s birthdays.  I got on the treadmill, cranked up my new “Kickin’ Ass with GBS” playlist on my ipod, and got into a rhythm.  When “Give me Everything” by Pitbull and NeYo came on, my body just took off.  “For all we know we might not get tomorrow”…

I couldn’t believe what I was feeling!

 

Everything. I was feeling everything! My feet, my calves, my core, my arms….  I was able to jog for 5 minutes straight, twice in a 30 minute treadmill session.  The endorphins were pumping through my brain, and I felt as if I had just won the lottery.  When I was done, I started jumping around my basement so excited, singing at the top of my lungs.  It really is a good thing that no one is around during the day, because I really do make a fool of myself– but, it’s all in the name of recovery, my friends!  I increase the jogging a bit each time I’m on the treadmill, and really can’t believe it.  I am up to 40 minutes a day, with 4-five minute increments of jogging each session.  There are no marathons in my future at this point, but the fire has been lit.  Suzy is Back.

Additionally, I found the best vitamins.  I started taking vitamin D3 which is good for a healthy immune system and natural energy.  We all know that these are my two weakest areas— my immune system and my energy level.  I started taking these vitamins about a week ago, and I can already feel the difference.  Between my new regimen of treadmill therapy and Vitamin D3, I feel like a new woman!

For the first time since August 11, I can honestly say, I Feel Great!

Took my life from negative to positive….
I just want y’all know that, And tonight, let’s enjoy life!

Thank you for joining me on this journey.

Suz

    You’ll soon be running to the shoe sale at Off the Rack!
    So very glad to hear you are logging/jogging miles on the treadmill.
    Keep up the good work!
