And tomorrow...

I haven't been online consistently for a while and needed to be back with my Spark Peeps. You help keep me sane more than you'll ever know.
It's amazing how a small injury can set you back. I initially thought giving it some rest and modifying my workouts would do the trick. Two weeks later, the pain was getting worse. I thought I just needed to take more time to rest before working out again. After a few days, I tried working out and it was unbearable. I went to the DR and was given even worse news. I not only needed to make changes to my physical activities for the next week or two, I had gained 7 pounds. I felt like I'd lost the steam I'd been building for over 2 months. I cried on the way home, started finding more reasons to skip work outs and continued down my shame spiral.
Then I remembered, if I did it once, I can do it again. I started working out every day in March and was really proud of my efforts. It was not easy at first, but nice to see progress over time.
So, I'm going to spend time this week getting back on the road to good health.
Slowly and thoughtfully, I will eat healthier and incorporate movement. I will drink more water and remember that portion control is important. I love myself too much to give up again.
I'll also remember that my Spark family has always had my back and will cheer me along the way. I've missed you all.
Have a wonderful week!
