It’s been a long time since I posted. I hadn’t realized it has been so long. I just returned from a nice vacation to the warmth of Arizona and Mexico. It was nice to rest. I feel like I have a new outlook on a lot of things.
The last post was about me hitting a wall. I am happy to report that I did make it through the wall. Unfortunately very shortly after that I injured my back and I was unable to exercise at all. I went for long walks on my vacation but I haven’t been able to run in three weeks. I miss running. I am going to start getting slowly back on track today.
I was discouraged when I hurt my back but I also decided that I would not let it defeat me. I went for physiotherapy very early on. I got the help I needed right away to help me get back on track. I also had a doctor’s appointment that caused me to reflect on where I have been and how much progress I have made.
The last time my blood sugar was measured I was on the edge of being pre-diabetic. Now my blood sugar is in the normal range. My resting heart rate is under 80, it used to be over 90. My thyroid is under control. I have lost 13 pounds. All of this news came exactly when I needed it.
I am excited about my life. I will do the 5K race no whether I reach my goal of running 10, walking one or not. This is not about being perfect. I am making progress. And the awesome thing is that this feels doable for the rest of my life.
