Wanted to exercise today and I thought I better not, my ankle has been swollen the last two days. I just want it to get stronger so that I don't have to go slow on the treadmill - I feel like it is holding me back. I am not a patient person and I know that watching what I eat helps and walking slow is better than no walking at all but I am still frustrated... I am in the "Let's Exercise and Lose Some Weight" mode and I don't want my frustrations to overcome that - it is hard enough to get motivated anyway!
Dear God, please help my ankle to heal and become stronger each day. Please help me to be patient and understand that You may have a reason for this obstacle. Please help me to remain motivated to make this a lifestyle change this time instead of continuing to live this cycle of losing and gaining. These things I ask in your son Jesus' name. Amen.
