I’m still in some serious back pain and I’ve been letting it get the best of me. Yesterday I drowned myself in chocolate covered peanut butter eggs and leftover meat lovers lasagna. It wasn’t pretty and (surprise, surprise,) it didn’t make me feel any better. If anything, now I feel worse.
So this morning I tried to find my motivation by pouring a big glass of water and making a breakfast with the toddler. We are also planning to hit a local park and a farm stand later today. Sitting on this couch for yet another day is not going to help me get my mojo back. Nope. I already spent enough time feeling sorry for myself.
I found inspiration in this Lance Armstrong quote…
“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.”
So here’s to not quitting. Just because my training and workouts have to be put on hold doesn’t mean I have to give up totally. I can still stay somewhat active and make good food choices. Life is not all or nothing. I need to find a balance and do what I can when I can and that is exactly what I intend to do.
Here’s to a weekend on plan, not matter our situation we have a choice. We can either feel sorry for ourselves or make the best of a bad situation. I choose the latter. Who’s with me?
