I was moving forward with my goals,satisfied that I had made some positive changes, when I fell down AGAIN, (literally). This time I broke my hip! I cried when I realized I had to withdraw from school this semester, and had a pity party..I don't regret it I was in pain and my plans were crushed. Anyone who says they remained positive through any similar circumstance is lying...I did slowly regroup and look at what I could do. The hospital provided a nice selection of healthy, lo-cal foods-so I chose them. The nurses were very happy that I was drinking water. Physical therapists were excellent exercising coaches. And with extra time I read lots of motivational blogs here on Spark. Today I can once again put on my own shoes and found that I have actually lost 3 lbs. So forward I go again, just from a different starting point!

With balance and mobility problems it is often necessary to modify exercises for safety. I would like to share with others ways to keep moving while disabled

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

And then the day came, when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

This isn't my blog but it is for me the most inspirational one I've read yet. AWESOME

Experience is not what happens to a man. It is what a man does with what happens to him.

"If your going to think 'I may as well', then you might as well think 'I may as well not.'
