Can't really think of a better title than that.
I was doing so great, like happens often, then I let life gets in the way, which ALWAYS happens. I stay drowning in struggles for a few months before I pull myself out again and then have another two to three months of success before I start the cycle all over again.
I've been seeing a wonderful counselor off and on. She's kind of my sounding board to keep me sane, pats me on the back and puts me back in the war letting me know I CAN do it! For some reason I brought up my frustration with my dedication to my health and the cycle I go through. She started digging deep to help me figure it out. Wow, very interesting and brought tears. The Ah Ha moment has not come yet but I know it's something I need to work on.
The half marathon I trained for is next Saturday. My training has been thrown off, I've gotten walking in but nothing intense like I need. The pain in my feet and knees and hips are still there. It doesn't take as long or as far to get them hurting. I've got to decided if my body can do 6.55 miles in one week.
I'm grateful for my Spark Friends and team challenges that keep me somewhat conscious of my choices and make me want to put ME back on the list.
