It seems that every time I start on a new weight loss and exercise program I end up hurting something: knee, sciatic nerve, lower back, foot. You name it, it's been hurt. Well after a very good start, and not to mention having a great time on my new mountain bike, my knee gave out while doing my 8 day of 28-day challenge video. Nothing fancy just a little bit of shuffling of the feet. Boy talk about pain and weakness! Well this is where I would normal get so upset that I'd totally give up on everything -- exercise AND diet. Well not this time. This time I'm acknowledging that I need to rest the knee (my son says at least a week to start) and watch my nutrition even closer to make sure that I don't gain that I have already lost back. This a total turn-around attitude for me and I'm so happy with it. I now know that bumps in the road are not the end of the road. I will still reach my goal, just maybe not as soon as I'd planned. But I will reach it!
