2016 begins on level 12 and 15,309 spark points.
3 February 2016
I'm fighting my way back after years of regaining weight, enduring severe pain, and having almost no energy at times as a result of Crohn's Disease. I thank God that things are getting better since I was diagnosed in 2015 and began treatment. There is currently no cure known to man, but God knows all and I'll leave it at that. I am now working on getting back to where I was. It hard because I'm often physically unable to work out due to either flares (when the disease rears its ugly head flooding me with symptoms including excruciating pain) or exhaustion, and on the other hand I know that exercise is actually good for most conditions including mine. I am now determined to push when I can taking advantage of the periods when I feel well instead of wasting time on less beneficial things. I'll be okay with resting when I'm physically unable to workout. My good days now truly outweigh my bad days! This is even more important to me now that I have achieved a long-time dream (over 10 years) of becoming a personal trainer with multiple fitness/nutrition certifications (currently working on an Associate's in Exercise Science). It is important to me that I be an example and look the part to inspire others to take better care of the temples God has given them. We can do more of what He has instructed us to do when we are maintaining our bodies to the best of our abilities.
