I hurt my ankle months ago, in July, and I've been going to doctors ever since. Last week I finally had an MRI and found out that I have a torn tendon and a torn ligament. I have spent the last 6 weeks in a walking cast boot and symptoms have improved, but I think the next step will probably be surgery. Surgery doesn't scare me, I'm up for anything that speeds up my recovery and gets me out of the boot sooner. I just find it really hard to stay on track with my nutrition when I can't get out and exercise that much.
Allowing myself to be depressed about my situation has lead to a lot of overeating and subsequent weight gain. I feel like it is time for me to switch my focus to all the other parts of my life that are whole and healthy.
This is the perfect time of year for me to adjust my attitude. One, I will be able to use this positive focus to keep myself on track nutritionally during a very difficult season. And two, I will increase my feelings of gratitude for the wonderful health and the many blessings I do enjoy.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my many Spark Friends!
