OUCH!! And yes, super-fit gym gods and goddesses can ignite hubris in just about anyone, not remembering that some of us are mere mortals. My former boxing coach has a body that seems unfair because she is also super nice and brilliant - she has a PhD in Psychology. But she worked so hard to get and stay that way. She would push us to the limits all the time and I, too, would be the one who would end up injured because I didn't listen to my body - I looked at hers!! Also I think that we live in a culture that encourages working through pain - in exercise, in life, at work, etc. Quitting or modifying is considered weak.
Take care of yourself - you want to be able to play with your grand-babies some day and not be the old woman who has to sit down every five minutes!!


Hey - I wanted to tell you, and don't know how except here - the last few times I have read and tried to comment on your posts, the "Captcha" image won't come up. I have to refresh it multiple times to even get an image at all. I'm telling you because it's possible others are having this issue? Guess I'll go see if that happens now . . .

About Me

  • Carmen Staicer is a whirlwind of energy and execution, who never sleeps and drinks way too much coffee. She works from home as Social Media Programs Manager for SheKnows, and is the mom to six kids, most of whom play instruments, sing or dance and all of whom are much smarter than she will ever be. In other words, her house is never ever quiet or still. A concentration of asthma, food allergies, spectrum disorders and learning disabilities means that she spends an awful lot of time second guessing herself and Dr. Googling, as well as learning to cook everything the family might like to eat. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, boxing (she has her Black Belt in Muay Thai), sleeping, exploring coffee shops, photography, ballet class and cooking. She excels in being a smart mouth and has her major in sarcasm, with a dual minor in BS studies and avoiding laundry.
