Thanks for the awards! and Fighting back (Jennifer)
I would like to say thank you to Lesia, Dawne, and Bob who all gave me awards. These are some of my favorite blog writers and I was so honored to get an award. So thank you!
Today I decided (thanks to Jen and Lesia's comments yesterday) that I was not going to sit back and let this ankle get the best of me. And this is exactly why blogging is such a wonderful thing for me. There is always someone who can put something into a different perspective for me, or flat out put me in my place. I am counting calories to the very best of my ability. And, today I went to the gym and did some weight training. Usually I do my cardio and then weight training. Today I skipped the cardio and hobbled around from machine to machine and attempted a workout that I was capable of for today. I didnt have that sweaty accomplished feeling that I get from cardio but at least I am not giving up on me. This is a journey regardless of what is going on in my life. There will always be obstacles and even more excuses, and it is up to me to find a way to fight back...every single time. If I dont then I will end up back at square one like all the other times when I came across a road block, which seemed to be all the time. But that was the old Jen, and the new Jen is really learning to deal with things differently. And let me tell you, things MUST be different because I got to the gym this morning only to realize that my gym bag with all my necessary *stuff* was still about 20 miles back at home in our other car. So...it was a perfect situation where I had a choice to make. Either I go back home and let that obstacle get the best of me, or...I could go home, get the bag from the other car and go back. And that is what I did. Even though I knew I couldnt do a normal workout I didnt give up. And for that I have to give myself credit because my mind was really in debate mode. Was I a bit cranky over it? Yup, no doubt. But 75 miles later I fought back and beat my obstacle.
Hope you all are having a great day. Oh, I decided to hold off on the dr for a bit and give my ankle the full 10 days before going to see the dr. I am sure it is not broken so I will try to wait it out. You all know how much I dread dr visits....
