I borrowed a bike and so far have gone on two rides with my kids. We live in a hilly subdivision with private streets in a rural area. It was more challenging (a good thing) than I expected! I was able to get my heart rate up tonight!! So excited. I am still healing from the two stress fractures and running (my true love) is out of question for who knows how long. I do need a better bike for safety reasons and am praying for the right size (used) bike to come my way at a good price ($150ish).

I have been pretty down since this injury. I think I am finally ready to focus on my health and weight loss again. The scale is finally moving down. I have close to 40lbs to go. I have not been this heavy or out of shape for 3 1/2 years. Very humbling to be injured. Praying for healing..know there is much work to be done spiritually. I am trusting God more and in His power I am strong. Looking ahead. What a journey of grace and mercy. What a great God..

    So glad you have a temporary way to get out and move! You're so right that God is good...even through this discouraging injury, He has a wonderful plan for you and perhaps opportunities to give Him glory that you wouldn't have had otherwise. Keep looking up!
