This Wednesday Word No. 112, from AdView and spotted on Pinterest, is pure facts. I’ve seen it in my own life recently with some strides made with my fitness. Toward the beginning of the year, I set out to take control of my health and made finding a personal trainer one of my 2019 goals. Since I’ve been working out with my trainer, I’ve lost 10 pounds and 2 percent body fat! I was surprised to hear those results, but it just goes to show that a little becomes a lot if you keep your head down and trust the process. I think the (not-so) secret to my success has been making changes to my regimen little by little. I started cutting back on eating fast food and upped my physical activity. Nothing groundbreaking! This could apply to any goal that you make for yourself.
Also, on the eve of World MS Day, I must reflect on my health journey. I’ve slowly been working on strengthening my left foot that became severely weakened after my flareup, which ultimately led to me being diagnosed with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. And slowly I’m beginning to be able to walk for longer periods unassisted by my AFO brace. I WILL be able to leave it off permanently one day soon! To think about where I was back then and where I am today is astounding. I went from having extreme fatigue where I would just collapse after getting home from work, for weeks on end, to waking up at 5:30 a.m. consistently to work out and feeling energized well into the night. All I can say is, “Thank you, God!” I’m writing this to remind you that it — whatever your “it” may be — may look too hard to attain, but taking it one step, hour, day at a time will mean big results if you keep at it. So, don’t give up just yet! You’re closer than you think.
