Setbacks are a part of life and they are going to happen no matter what we do. We cannot control the events that come into our lives, we can only control how we deal with those happenings that so easily beset us.
Last week I got back on track with my workouts and was continuing the consistent pace of that this week, UNTIL I pulled my back out of place just two days ago. I do not know what pulled it out, I can only say that I suddenly started having trouble moving from a seated position to upright, or from up to down. I am currently under chiropractic treatment for this issue, but it has put a damper, to say the least, on my workout regimen.
It is discouraging to me. I have no idea why this happened, but I am sure God has some reason for it. How I choose to handle it will be the key to my success through this set-back. I hope that I handle it properly and make it a stepping stone in the right direction instead of a rock I crawl under in the wrong direction!
