Renewal and Recommitment

Sparodic attempts-i.e. lack of consistently have plagued me during the past six months. However, I recently read a blog by JMerleau which shook me up: Shut and Sweat was the tile of the blog. Merlau's blogs inspire me. Especially important to my state of mind was his quote:

"We must train from the inside out. Using our strengths to attack and nullify any weaknesses. It's not about denying a weakness may exist but about denying its right to persist."

It was the notion of persitence over weaknesses which resonated in me. Though I have read Sparkpeople emails, articles, recipes etc. daily through the 6 moths, I have not commited to healthy living as much as I did today. Thank you JMerlau.

Nancy....

Thank you for all the comments on my feed....well haven't been doing too much of sparking as I am not sitting up too much. Right now my Nurse Chanda is reading the posts out to me and is typing as I tell her to.

Well traction is helping the back, but just sleeping on my back, is making it uncomfortable for my shoulders and yes the traction causes a lot of soreness especially on the calves and thighs...I only walk to go to the bathroom and can feel the muscles pulling, as I haven't been doing my PT... but hope to start that from today. My senior PT will be coming in to help with the new exercises for the next one month...till my chiropractors treatment is done.

Hugs & Prayers
Mani
