So, after 5 weeks of working hard, my knee decided it was unhappy during my workout today and the bursitis pain kicked in hard. There I was, sitting on the couch with ice on my elevated leg practically in tears. It felt like a hurdle I was not going to make it over; all of this hard work for nothing. I planned on writing a blog to ask you all for motivation and positive thinking to keep me eating healthy while I waited out my knee recovery.

But then I remembered...

That is NOT who I am anymore! Since when do I just give up because the hurdle was higher than I expected? I have a pool downstairs in my building I am going to jump in it tomorrow and keep doing my workouts there, as well as the knee strentghening exercises my physiotherapist gave me. Before I know it, I'll be back in full action again!

Oh no, negative self talk...don't you ever try to tell me I can't do it. I dare you to try and build an even bigger hurdle. If I have to get a trampoline, stilts or simply run right through it, YOU CAN'T STOP ME!!!
