2012-Getting Back to me!!!

Thursday, December 22, 2011

I want to apologize to the Morning Workout group for not being a good leader for most of 20 11. I was diagnosed with hip bursitis and psisformis (lower back issue). It has been pretty painful. Physical therapy helped with the hip bursitis but I have suffered most of the year with the psisformis(sciatic nerve problem). In December 2011, I went to see a chiropractor that has reduced the pain with my sciatic nerve by 50%. Yea! I have felt well enough to walk a couple of miles on the treadmill. I'm not back where I was prior to the back issues but I am on my way.
I plan on continuing to see him until I get 100% and then stay on maintenance. I wish I would have seen him sooner.
I got down on myself and gained 10 lbs!! I quit exercising because of the pain and tracking WW points. I understand how depressing a chronic health problem can be.
Goals for 2012- Getting back involved with Sparkpeople, working out everyday, back on track with Weight Watchers and finding a special someone! I think it starts with feeling good about yourself so you can attract the right person.

    Lisa, I can understand how the health issues, tracking, and stress of the situation kept you away- heck-I've been in the same boat except the health issues are with my parents and husband. I can honestly say, I've missed you greatly in the threads but honestly I've been lapsed too in being able to find time to even turn on my computer & have time to myself to track and do much SP time.

    I believe if you create a festive and motivating list with goals/rewards to post for yourself it will help keep you moving in the right direction for 2012. I know if you keep to seeing the world with a glass 1/2 full it will come out in your actions and attitude and soon the view will be 3/4 full to full. Keep to your small steps, even 10 min. of exercising is better than none and together we can make 2012 a health one for us each.

    I have a feeling once you recapture your inner spark and let it shine out in your daily actions you will catch the eye of the right person who will come to realize how special and wonderful you are.

    Come on Spark Buddy lets see 2012 in with some healthy consistent habits, a refreshing and energized attitude to see and do our best in 2012, and be true and honest with our actions. I will help dust you off and lend a hand if you'll do the same for me.
