Gotta Roll With the Punches

Hello everyone! I did not forget to post today, I've simply been at the doctors office since noon and before that I was at work. Needless to say, busy day and I have done absolutely nothing that I need. I know that I promised today to tell you all about the bad hormones in our bodies and I promise that I will do that very soon. However today I got some bad news. I have had a reaccuring medical issue since I was 17 and have had surgery on the same thing five times now, the last time was January this year.

While I was at the doctors office today he advised me to not continue doing the P90X and that I have to have surgery again at the end of this month. He said a few weeks after the surgery if he feels that I am healed well enough I can continue the program. Initially this really upset me because I've been so proud of myself. I cried like a baby while sitting alone in the waiting room, then it dawned on me. Sometimes (often times) things don't work out the way that we plan, but I believe everything happens for a reason. I've decided that I'm making changes and maybe to get the best results this medical issue needs to be resolved first and maybe this time it will.

I am not going to let something silly like this stop me. Instead of continuing that particular program I will continue eating well and doing what minimal exercise I can do. As we all know something is better than nothing and I think that by keeping a positive attitude about the whole thing will also help speed up the healing process. I'm sorry to have let you all down and I'm saddened because I feel like I've also let myself down, but there is nothing I can do and it is out of my hands. But I am not a quitter! So I will continue to progress. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade so they say!


  1. I am so glad that you are continuing with your goal! Those bumps in life can really throw you off but you're not letting it! Way to be!

  2. Thank you. I was really upset yesterday. I know that it's not going to happen as quickly now and that it's going to be harder, but that's life.
