Here I go again
Thursday, August 18, 2016
It's funny how sometimes it takes a crisis to get you to get out of your head and just do what needs to be done. I've been struggling to get back on track for quite a while now. I've tried several different plans, challenges, means of support and often too many things at once. To add to my difficulties, I suffered a knee injury several months ago, which I tried to ignore. Now that I am limited on what I can currently do physically and have many stressors going on in my personal life right now (including my mom in the hospital and a teenage daughter whose going through her first break-up), I'm finally learning to focus on what I can do, instead of what I can't. I've started using SparkCoach again, which helps give my Spark time structure and encourages me to track. I'm faithfully doing my PT exercises and tracking those instead of sulking that I can't get on my elliptical or do my DVD workouts. I've also asked my PT how I can slowly start working a little more walking into my days. When I get overwhelmed with my to-do list, I'm asking for help. None of us likes to be in crisis mode, but sometimes I think it's just the thing to make us re-focus on what's important.
