Now some of you may read this and say, so what? I'm hoping others will know what I mean. Yesterday, for the first time since I have been on this journey, I got injured during working out. I rolled my ankle big time and fell hard to the floor. My foot and knee got messed up pretty bad. I limped to put ice on it and sat down for 20 minutes. The whole time I was sitting there I was thinking whether or not I could finish my workout. I checked and it wasn't swollen and I was able to put weight on it, hurting, but still able to, so I went back to the DVD and finished it. Not well, but finished it. This morning it still hurts, but not unbearable and I find myself thinking of what I can do today that won't aggravate it: upper body strength, core, stretching, video of sitting down exercises? Why am I telling you this? Because before I would have used this to a way to get out of exercising for yesterday, probably today, and then many more. Now I am figuring out how to exercise anyway? Major attitude change. I'm feeling like a warrior!
