In light of the tragedy in Newtown on Friday, I feel like everything I've ever complained about is petty and pathetic. My heart breaks for those children, teachers, and their families, and I can only hope that in time they will find some measure of peace.
Even though my "problems" are insignificant, they are still challenges for me and my weight loss / health goals. And since life moves on for those of us blessed to have another day, I suppose I better get back on the wagon.
Last week I worked out on Monday, then began having my pesky back muscle spasms on Tuesday. I did a careful, light workout on Tuesday, then ended up helping a co-worker finish shopping for our company's "adopted" Christmas family on Wednesday (so no workout then). I was also starting to feel a bit under the weather, and have been fighting a head cold and/or sinus infection since then. So... Wed - Sun I did NOT work out, and although my cold may have been an issue (I've been exhausted!), I still think I should have done something, at least a couple days.
I started off the month so well, and now I feel I've failed. It's going to be extra challenging to get back on the wagon this week, but I have no reason not to (other than the lingering cold, but I'm not bed ridden so a workout I shall do!) I'm also trying to be more positive, thankful, and greatful for everything in my life. It's so easy to take it all for granted.
So here's to spreading love, support, and happiness during this holiday season, and on into the New Year!
