I cried in the parking lot after my workout

I was so overcome with emotion that I just can’t put into words how grateful I am for this opportunity, for a husband who pushed me to get out of bed even when the pain was unbearable and my Lord who heard my cries for the last four years and is giving me a fresh start.

Today I did my assigned workout and was pleased,  but I managed to do 25 minutes on the treadmill at a 3.1 pace and 15 minutes on the bike.  Last year I could hardly walk around the grocery store and the year before that I was in a wheelchair after a botched back surgery and then another to repair that mess.  I never thought I’d be here again.  Praise the Lord for his infinite love and mercy.

  1. Applause dear lady – what an awesome victory and to sing out your praises in tears, in song, in gratitude – God hears and loves it all! You are a champion for pushing through those obstacles and embracing the success! Go Michele!!! 🙂

  2. Thank you Suzy. So many times I wanted to give up and had almost resigned myself to being handicapped the rest of my life. But my amazing husband encouraged me and pushed me and I never stopped praying and believing that there had to be more for me. I’m extremely humbled and eternally grateful.
