Set Backs

Well, it is bound to happen.  I just didn’t think it would happen quite so early in my endeavors.  Here I am, ready to devote myself to daily exercise and really strengthening my body, and WHAM!  I am incapacitated.  Not by my MS, but by a sprained ankle.

I allowed two whole days for the ankle to heal, then I got back to business.  Not exercising, mind you, but I figured I could at least accomplish my everyday errands and commitments.  A day or three of that, and the ankle was telling me that it meant business.  This was no ordinary sprain…or, I am no longer immortal. 

Now, two weeks later, walking is not too bad.   The stairs are the worst, and still being taken just one at a time.  My hubby made sure it was iced it all weekend, and he picked up a brace for me.  Those things have helped tremendously.

Here’s the deal.  There will always be set backs.  There will always be days when we don’t get to the exercise that we intended.  You gotta get back on that horse.

I started this blog to track my progress and to hold myself accountable in a tangible way.  I am also hopeful that this will encourage others with MS to stay strong and healthy.  So, I am getting back on that horse.

I feel a bit behind the eight ball, as I have been inactive for far too long.  There is so much work to be done, but I want to see results.  I want to feel strong.  Exercise is going to be key in keeping myself healthy as I continue on this journey.  I believe that with all my heart.
