After my spinal surgery, I was frustrated, depressed, angry, sad, envious, embarrassed, and weak. Admittedly, 90% of the time I’m a very positive, happy, see-the-bright-side kind of person. Yet, I would be a phony if I didn’t admit that I have had all of these feelings at one point or another following my surgery.
After 3 months, I was able to start low impact exercising again. I started doing several in-home fitness programs using my Team Beachbody On Demand Fitness Library. In addition, I added an all-natural, 74-ingredient protein shake called Shakeology® to my nutrition plan. I was a renewed, happy, positive woman with more energy and optimism.
I recognize that I have been given this experience to help other women honor, embrace and release those things that are holding them back from creating a life of peace and purpose. The confidence that emerges when you do that helps conquer any challenge and ultimately reach your goals.
So develop a new plan. Define yourself by what you do for others, and not by the number on the scale and I promise your major setback will become minor and happiness will be yours to have.
