Dealing with set backs

Saturday, December 21, 2013

Growth and wisdom are two of the gifts that I have received on this journey. I see these attributes when I have small set backs or slip ups. I have dealt with two surgeries since October and was limited with exercise choices. I have not been able to keep to my earlier exercise routine so I have to make do with what I can do! In the past this would be an excuse to just go back to my old way and give up on exercise and eating healthy, since I can't do the exercise I want....why not. I know that my limitations from surgery are finally coming to a end and I am looking forward to getting back to my exercise program!! I have also learned that when I have a slip up I don't have to turn it into a catastrophe! It is just what it is and I need to go back to my healthy choices asap!! I am doing this for myself and I am the priority!! To me these examples show me the growth and wisdom that I have learned on this journey ...thanks to Spark People and all the wonderful members!!

    I was in a wheel chair for two months with an ankle injury and skin cancer surgery. Now, I'm having a really, really hard time getting back into my groove. (Plus, these darned holiday drinks aren't helping the cause.) Anyway, I decided to stop beating myself up for where I'm at and try my best. I hope you keep going strong!
