I've got the fear! I need to run faster!

Okay, so I've had some time off from getting Zombie Fit, but I've had good reason! Not only have I been convalescing after a foot op, we've been going through the arduous task of buying a new house and selling ours. And no nightmare can come close to the home buying process!

So, last Tuesday I was declared fit to start exercising again - 12 weeks after my operation. And I'm not one to give up easily, so off I went to bootcamp again to get my fitness back up to scratch. And it's like starting all over again (I have eaten quite a lot of cookies).

But you don't need much more motivation than the reports coming from Miami about the flesh eating dude that was shot, then shot some more to stop him in his hungry ways. Is this the start of the zombie apocalypse? Whatever it is, it's making me a little nervous. Should I start buying slightly more food to stock up - just in case? Should we start sharpening our tools and fortifying the house? I do know that I need to run a bit faster and strengthen those flabby arms to the point where I become a neck snapping power house.

Whatever happens, it would be somewhat embarrassing if those dead zombies do start wandering the earth, I'd have to answer my own blogging question: Am I Zombie Fit? No. Very embarrassing indeed. Better to be safe than sorry.

Can zombies type?

Has the Zombie Apocalypse started?

There's some crazy stuff going on at the moment. Not only has Miami had its first flesh-eating episode, other strange stuff has been going off too. Check out this post from Dread Central:

Have you heard any crazy or weird stuff recently? We need to keep up with these reports so we can be prepared! Remember: don't become zombie fodder!

Zombies are Alive! And living in Miami!

WARNING! Never trust a naked in the street!

Yikes! It's already started. Read this report from the Huffington Post. Naked man? Eating another man's face? In broad daylight? And continues to eat after being shot? All the ingredients for a zombie attack.

My New Left Foot - Hold Off The Zombies!

I'm writing this from my sick bed (well, hospital bed), with a big old bandage around my new and improved left foot.

In my quest to become zombie fit, I thought it would be advantageous to get all my physical weaknesses sorted out before the onslaught of the undead. Although if they appeared now I wouldn't be much good!

I've suffered from bunions for as long as I can remember. At the tender age of ten years-old, I had both feet operated on to correct my prematurely Old Lady Foot (OLF) condition. The right foot worked but my left foot was left with very much the same OLF I started with.

Fast forward 25 years and here I am - with my new left foot! I must say the staff at Park House, Nottingham were absolutely super!  They run a very slick operation there - the NHS at it's very finest!

The whole operation was conducted under local anesthetic. I was really nervous about this factor, but preferred this option due to all the risks with general anesthetics. Once all the injections were done, I just had to wait for it all the kick in and have a truly numb foot.

Once I was in the operating theatre, a screen was erected and the surgeons got to work on giving me a beautiful new foot. I heard the sizzle of my flesh being cut and the vibration of the power tools sawing through the bones in my foot. After feeling the initial sawing (only the vibration), the rest of the op was fine. I was shown my stitched up foot (good looking!) and then bandaged up.

It's now day two, and I must say it was very painful as the anesthetic wore off last night. I think your brain needs time to adjust to pain and the sudden lack of numbness was a bit of a shock. Luckily I took some hefty pain killers and managed to get some sleep.

So, come the zombie apocalypse, I should have a foot good enough to walk, run or hike away from those beasts! And a foot that will hopefully keep me walking until I'm a very old dear! Failing that, I could use this leg as a weapon to club those nasty zombies in the face (if it didn't hurt so much!). Am I zombie fit? Getting there!

How I was transformed into a zombie!

I spent to day as an extra on the short film The Shot, directed by Paul Whale, one very cold Sunday in January. One scene was as a zombie and one as a normal human (well, as normal as I get!). It was great fun - so here's some of the pics from the day!

Just looked in the mirror.

This isn't my hand - my fingers are a lot fatter.
This is me... just as myself!

I'm a Zombie Star!!

When invited to be an extra in The Shot, directed by Paul Whale - how could I possibly say no?!

I'm the lady having her lunch and my sister just happened to come along too for some kissing action!! We had a blast of a day, even though it was freezing cold, but a great experience all the same.

Hope you enjoy it!

Me, a Gun and a Swimming Pool.

There's never any excuses to practice your aim.

Could the "Zombie Bee" be the end of us?

This is an interesting article about the discovery of a parasite that seems to turn honeybees into zombie-like creatures before killing the host for the fly's larvae to hatch. And we all know about the effects of the declining honeybee population...
