from a tiny spark to a roaring blaze

Friday, November 08, 2013

It dawned on me this morning that it truly has been Spark people that has inspired and propelled me to do what I thought was impossible for me. I joined spark people, and a chair exercise team. That was all I was physically capable of doing. I found it frustrating, and boring, and I hungered for more than the 10 minutes a day I had committed to doing.

I decided to talk to my pain specialist about physical therapy, so I could learn how to exercise more, and do it safely. Here I am 3 months later, and my whole world has changed. Despite the steroids I have lost weight. But the miracle is what I can do physically. When I began I could not walk 1/8 mile. Yesterday I walked 2 miles at a 2.5 MPH pace. I feel fabulous. I am thinking about going back to work again. I feel all bright and shiny all the time. I am remembering a person I forgot how to be. My life ROCKS OUT LOUD right now.

Thank you Spark People !!!!!! What started so small has grown, and will continue to grow.
