I really do try to focus on the positive. Some days, that's easier than others. This week hasn't been easy. I came to a hard revelation this week that nearly fractured my soul. The pain couldn't come at a "better" time (extreme sarcasm). With my monthly visitor already making me feel like crap and going cold turkey on the Diet Coke, the last thing I needed was the slap in the face I got.
BUT I refuse to let the trolls of my life win! I REFUSE! After taking a half day of personal time and getting some sleep, I'm in a much better mood; and something amazing happened in water aerobics tonight!
Our GREAT instructor, DeNease, always walks us through a series of stretches. One of the stretches requires us to bring our leg back and grab our foot. I haven't been able to do it, so I just hold my leg up as high as I can. Tonight, as I pulled up my leg, I realized something amazing! I was touching my foot! No kidding! While I didn't lose any weight this week, I did achieve something!
It's more than just the number on the scale. It's about how you feel and what you can do. I'm so very excited. Great things are on the horizon!!!
