I Do Have a Choice. And I Choose to Be Positive


Phew. I am feeling half way normal again. Nothing like a migraine to make things more interesting! I am making progress with my back. I am not quite out of the woods yet. The good news is my chiropractor said I could take short walks. The bad news is, no running for at least a month. No running means I don’t know if I will get enough training in to run my first half marathon. My spirits plummeted. And the migraine hopped on board. But progress is progress. A week ago I could barely walk. So after the pain became manageable, I started  forcing myself to focus on the things I can do. Yesterday I organized my closet. Did you know you there are all kinds of places to organize around the house sitting down? I feel better when I am productive. Even if it’s not the kind of productive I am used too.
The weather has changed from cold and rainy earlier in the week to nearly 100 degrees during the day. So sitting by the pool was and is a must. Yesterday mother went with me. It was nice to just relax and spend time with her. And after it cooled down, I went for a short walk. I did half my creek route and even though I am still limping a little, the pain was manageable. But let’s be honest, it took every bit of self-control I have to not run. And most of my walk was spent arguing with that little voice in my head that even if I ran the short distance to that tree up ahead, or that mailbox by the corner, it was still running. Funny, usually that little voice is telling me I can’t do things!

Buckaroo and the Mr get back from fishing today. Although it’s nice to have the house to myself, I am looking forward to having a little help with some of the things around the house that I cannot do.
It’s already well into the 90’s s,so today will be spent next to the pool again. My heavens, I feel as though I have missed so much around here! I will be catching up with all you pretty awesome people and returning messages soon!

Until next time, always be true to yourself and think like a boss!

  1. Sorry to hear that your training isn’t going to plan! Hope you’re able to run soon 🙂 When I ran my second half marathon, my longest training run had been 6 miles (due to injury) but I still managed to run the whole thing so stay positive!


  2. I am sorry to hear about the time off from running, as I understand what that is like, but I am glad that you are starting to feel better. I felt out of sorts today, so, your blog was just what I needed on this rainy evening to remind me that I have a choice when it comes to my perspective, thoughts, and feelings. Thanks:)
