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!

    Hey girl

    Well you know that I am no stranger to injury but believe me when I say this too will pass but take the time to let it heal....RICE

    Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation.

    Grab a good book and relax today.

    Love the quote and your enthusiasm. I still want you to careful though. Spark has some great chair exercises. I did some and they are a great workout. Hope your foot and knee are better today. emoticon emoticon

And you can hardly believe that it is YOU that is thinking these thoughts! Hope you found something good to do that made you feel like you had a good workout and didn't hurt too. Take good care of you ... I know you will!! You're doing GREAT!!!
