A Challenge is an Opportunity!

Talk about a challenging week!

I discovered last Tuesday that there was an abnormal growth on the back of one of my legs; located behind my knee, above my calf.  That Sunday, a doctor confirmed it had developed into an infection.  Yikes!  Since then, I have been staying off my leg, when possible, while it heals.  The lack of exercise is killing me!  I was trying to begin training to run a 5k, but that has been postponed for the minute.  Instead, I ended up having to jump a few hurdles…Could that be considered exercise?… 🙂

Like I’ve said before…If you’re gonna accomplish anything worth while, you’re bound to jump a few hurdles.  A challenge?…Yes.  A setback?…No.  I used this week to fine tune my caloric intake and eating habits.  Since I wasn’t going to be able to exercise, I needed to take into consideration the extra calories I wouldn’t be burning per day.  I had to plan my meals and calories accordingly to maintain my weight loss.  Honestly, it wasn’t as hard as I thought it might be.  I got the opportunity to find new ways to arrange my diet and pair foods for optimal results. 

What did I learn this week?  A challenge is an opportunity!  For what?…Many things…an opportunity to learn, to adapt, to change, and to enhance; perhaps it’s an opportunity that has the power to show you your own strength and will…

How you receive it makes all the difference.
