Setbacks ~ We all have them!

I have been doing a lot of thinking about setbacks lately.  It’s almost been a full year of struggling with my Asthma something that I really felt was gone.  Well I knew it never fully leaves but not having 1 asthma attack since my youngest was born 8 yrs ago really had me convinced I would not have to deal with Asthma ever again.  I love exercising.  It’s the  number 1 thing that has helped me really keep my diabetes in control.  It’s also my BIGGEST stress buster.  Without exercise I am stressed!!  So the past few weeks I have been really thinking about life and how I have gotten through setbacks.  I remembered when I broke my Ankle falling on black ice. I broke my ankle on both sides.  I was half way through my weight loss journey.  I was devastated and depressed when I fell knowing it would make it really hard for me to reach my goal.

Talk about a set back.   I really could not see my journey press forward.  It was depressing.  I began to dig deep and I knew in my heart if I could keep up with my eating plan I could continue to lose the weight and get my diabetes undercontrol.  So I set out to do just that and I did!  Ever since that event I have to go back there mentally and remember what I felt.  I have been discouraged with my asthma.  I have some wonderful goals I have set and my asthma keeps getting in the way of accomplishing them but as with my ankle I am not going to let it stop me.  I am not going to let the setbacks take me to a negative place.  OK, so I can’t workout as much as I would like to but I am not going to get depressed about it.  I am going to be grateful for the days I can breath well and appreciate my workouts that much more.  I can keep a positive mindset and just keep pressing forward.

 

No matter what your set back is don’t you dare let it stop you.  Do what you can and just stay focused on what you can do and not what you can’t do!!  I have had so many great examples of people who have made it through setbacks and we can do this.  Just keep moving towards your goal and don’t give up!!
