A Little Pinch Goes A Long Way

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

This past week, my fitness minutes have not been out of this world as I have been dealing with a pinched nerve in my neck. Pesky little thing, however I am taking advantage of it. I am a person who is on the go, and I love my 2 hours of cardio daily they bring me peace. So I am taking it easy, as my mobility is limited, a real pain in the neck I tell you!! Ha!!!

That being said, I am eating healthy and very focused, drinking plenty of water and taking good care of myself. I have not fallen off the wagon, just changed my focused for the next little bit.

People during injuries can easily become discouraged and frustrated, as we can see it as a road block in our journey towards our goals. Its merely a pit stop, chance to refuel and tune up if you will. I hate stopping just as much as the next person, but there is always a positive in it.

My food consumption has been spot on, my attitude has been that of enthusiasm. I cant change where I am right now physically, it is a healing process, but I can take charge of so many things I have been unable to do or pay attention to while I am healing.

Life is good, it is what you make yes a little pinch goes a long way

    Wow, two hours of cardio a day - good for you!!!

    I can totally relate to this post, too. I have had two surgeries in the past two years and it has slowed down my workouts. But that's ok because I will one day get back to where I was.

    I wish you well with your goals!

    I can totally relate with this email! In a week, I get to LOSE the BOOT I've been having to wear since I had major tendon surgery on my ankle in October. It started to really get me down, but I decided to do whatever I CAN do, and I found there was a lot that I could do with the doctor's approval! I've only gained 3 pounds since then! You can do this! I know you can! emoticon
