Fall, Get Back Up, FALL again, GET BACK UP again!

Saturday, October 01, 2011

The month of August was a very trying month for me, health wise. After my episode of overworking myself and going to the ER, I was not in a happy place. Then, on top of that, I wasn't able to exercise and I was still having problems with my leg. In comes headaches that I had never had. So, I started going to physical therapy (which I'm still in) and I just didn't feel like eating better. I didn't feel motivated to get on SP, because I just wasn't in it. The month of September was mostly spent getting myself mentally together.

I started my student teaching, and that takes up SO MUCH TIME, that most days I would come home and stare at a wall. emoticon I've gotten better though with my schedule, and I am happy to say that I am eating well at school with my healthy snacks and wise lunches. I've also come back down in weight, and I'm feeling better. My physical therapy is also going well and I'm getting better.

The things I'm working on changing this month: my 10 cups of water, being on SP again, not overeating at dinner, and keeping up with at least my stretches.

What was the lesson I learned? We all continuously mess up, but it's really not about the number of times you mess up that count. It's the times you get back up that determines what sort of person you truly are! emoticon

    Glad you're back - you've been missed. I know the past couple months have been really challenging for you and you're so right that it's about the times you get back up. Learning how to deal with the challenges will make you stronger. I don't think you can say that you messed up though. Your health followed by beginning your student teaching was a lot to handle together and you just had to take a step back.

Sounds like things are going a lot better for you. You're finding a way to work with your schedule, eating healty again AND your weight is coming back down again. emoticon That's all because you never really gave up.

So glad to hear that you're feeling better and that your physical therapy is going well. You've set some good goals and you sound positive and determined. emoticon I know this is going to be a better month for you and I know that emoticon .

    You don't fail until you stop trying. I'm delighted to see you're back. We all understand the hurdles of life in general, and have had those "stare at the wall" days/weeks.
The successful venture you've already made from horizontal (fall) to vertical (upright) will be an exercise that, although capable, you don't want to do too many reps, if you know what I mean. It's the horizontal that tends to sabotage our future.
Welcome home, and many prayers and blessings. Who couldn't use a few more of those, eh?
