I was workout challenged yesterday.
My daughter became ill and needed to see a doctor ASAP. She had fever, chills and was quite shakey. She did feel safe driving; so of course Mommy to the rescue. We were at the Urgent Care office for quite awhile. No Strep throat but Upper Chest Infection has her side-lined for a day or so.
So you say what didn't I do again? Workout!! Day before yesterday because of my OA (Ostesoarthritis in my right knee) and yesterday to help my daughter.
I had forgot how much time it takes to help someone who is really as sick as she is; its quite time consuming. She hasn't been this sick in years so I was glad I was in town and my office is just down the street from her apartment.
Though I missed those workouts, rather than beat myself for "being bad" or "time lost" instead I chose to think a different way.
I reminded myself how much, by the Grace of God, has been accomplised: eating habits healthy, weight is down, blood pressure, cholesterol, are down and my self confindence is way up!!
This is change from the past. When I use to miss a workout, I use to immediately think failure; I was no good, can't finish what I start. I was my own worst enemy.
Now with the help of God Almighty and the expert advice from SparkPeople I now see the glass half full rather than half empty and cracked!!
