Why do I have to learn the hard way?

So I remember and you all probably do too that not too long ago I was blogging about my working out and is it worth it and why me. Why can't I lose weight if I workout? I was complaining, I know. Well, I guess sometimes I have to learn a lesson in life the hard way. I have been having some pain in my neck the last three weeks but nothing big and so I have just figured it would go away. Well, last Friday it got worst and I couldn't stand it. The pain was in my neck, the top of my back and down my arm. I took an 800 mg of motrion and it still was hurting really good or bad, so I went into the doctor's office to see if they could do anything for me.
I was right they just told me to take motrin for 5-7 days every eight hours and also they gave me some muscle relaxants which made me sleepy. That was it. I knew I was going to be frustrated but not this bad. The pain was so bad on Friday and through the weekend that I had to take tylenol in between the motrin. I also had to ice it as often as I could and Mike was so awesome, he has been giving me back massages since last week every day a couple of times a day. The reason why I say it serves me right is because they also told me not to work out at all not even walk. It has been driving me crazy. Now I can't even work out. I shouldn't have complained about working out because now this week I haven't been able to.

The first four days I was in so much pain that I didn't even feel like working out but now I am really missing it. I am finally feeling a lot better but when the motrin wears off I am still hurting but not near as bad.

I guess some things we need to learn in life. I have learned that I need to be grateful that I have a body that allows me to workout. I need to try to be happy with me just how I am.(yeah right) I need to be a little more thankful and not complain so much. Thanks to all of you that listen and don't judge me for the attitude that I have some days. Thanks.
Any way wish me well, and if anyone wants to go work out with me even a walk I would love a partner. I hate going alone.

Kathy, you were always my inspiration. Every day I would see you out running or walking or biking and I would think "I wish I was that motivated - she is awesome". You have always looked great. I think you are too hard on yourself. Enjoy the daily workouts but don't worry so much about losing whatever weight you think you need to lose. You truly do look fabulous! I miss you!

I hope you are feeling much better! Do you know what caused it? You are right that we should always be thankful for what we have and for what we can do. Thanks for the reminder! :-)

I hate those lessons in life. Sorry you have to go through it, I thought you already knew all these things and didn't have to learn them again. Just kiddin I am always needing sweet reminders in life of the lessons I have learned.
