It's been a rough couple of weeks. My motivation is practically non-existent. I have been experiencing horrible pain in my foot. I have been to my doctor 3 times, had x-rays and an MRI, and nothing has been found to explain the pain. Sunday was the first time since the pain began that I worked out, and I paid dearly for it - the pain from my workout was excruciating. To top it off, I stepped on the scale last Wednesday and was back where I started from. It's so hard for me to stay motivated when I can't see or feel the results of my efforts. I try to keep reminding myself that it's just a temporary setback, but it's hard to keep my focus.
God, grant me the...
Serenity to accept things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference
Patience for the things that take time
Appreciation for all that I have, and
Strength to get up and try again even when I feel it is hopeless.
