On the mend....

Monday, September 15, 2008

Well, it's been a tough few weeks. I fell and broke my right fibula (ankle bone) and am on the mend. This has put a MAJOR crimp in my plans on trying to get back on track after the "LOST SUMMER". I basically fell off the wagon and just stayed where I was for the past 5 months or so. But I was watching the Today show this morning and saw a fellow "Sparker" who lost 110 lbs. staying on track here. It can be done with the right mindset. I'm working as I'm healing to get that mindset back. I'm close in weight to where she started and need to get to close to where she is now. I doubt if I'll ever compete in a triatholon, but I know I can move more than I am now! Currently, I'm rolling around in a wheelchair and wish with all my heart, I could just take off for a 5 mile walk on this new beautiful walking trail near my home! So, patience must prevail. Good thoughts needed!!

    You can do this - the ankle will be okay soon, and then you'll be out there wreaking havoc! :)

    Keep positive - it'll get you back on your feet a LOT faster!
