I'm not sure how so many people with serious debilitating conditions are able to maintain positive outlooks. In the scheme of things, this back problem is more of an inconvenience than anything else. For now, it means I can't exercise in the way I would like, I can't sleep in a bed, and I have to let go of my plans to complete a triathlon sprint this year.
Really, how bad is that compared to people with MS, cancer, and others of the many awful bad things that happen to people through no fault of their own?
Luckily, I have SparkPeople habits like goal setting and evaluating to fall back on. So, what does this mean now? It's time to take realistic look at what I'm allowed to do and set goals that are consistent with capabilities.
