Don't Give Up On Your Dreams!


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Tuesday, August 06, 2013

That was my daughter's advice to me yesterday when I was feeling "too old" to run & bike.... when I was tired of all my aches & pains. "Don't give up on your dreams."

I appreciate all of the encouragement & advice you all gave me yesterday. And, I'm determined to be more faithful with my strength training & my nutrition. And, to stay kind of steady with my mileage for now until I feel more comfortable and stop having these nagging injuries. In fact, I am going to my trainer's today to have a pilates reformer session. I also made an appointment with a hand specialist to look at two of my problems.

Thanks again, and I WON'T give up on my dreams!

    Glad you have family to encourage you. I only have my husband with me now and he keeps putting me down when I say "I'd like to ride a bike again." so for now a friend and I are walking. When it gets "cold weather" again, I'll probably get my "bike time" at the gym. Either that or the pool when I do my own version of water aerobics. As long as I'm moving, that's what matters.

    You are so wise to check with personal trainer and a specialist to check out your injuries. You certainly don't want to do anything to make them worse and / or prevent healing. You are doing your part to keep your dream alive!

Wishing you all the best as you work to be more consistent with exercise; that's a tough one for me. I don't know about you, but having a personal trainer sure helps with the consistency and accountability!

    You have the right attitude about it today, keep up the good self-talk and try not to listen to the bad stuff.
