I was in tears yesterday watching The Biggest Loser and it was all because of this woman.....
Abby is one of the contestants on season 8 of the US show and what she has been through is horrific. At the moment she has a stress fracture in her tibia and her reply was "that's not devastating"........"I have lived my worst nightmare." Abby went on to explain how she lost her husband, her 5 year old daughter and her 2 week old son. They had been killed in a car accident by "some guy going over 100 miles per hour."
I honestly don't know how she got through that day, and the fact she manages to get up at all every day is amazing to me. Abby said "I got through it, I did what I had to do that day", she just takes it one day at a time. She also said "I want to feel better physically now"...."if I can get up and exercise each day, anyone can." She is so right!
If a woman who has lived through her "worst nightmare" can get up and out of bed everyday to go and exercise, then anybody can and that includes me. My silly, little, insignificant flu is nothing compared to what she has been through and even though I feel like total crapolla, that feeling can not and never will compare with losing your whole family.
If Abby can find the strength to just get out of bed each morning then there is nothing, absolutely nothing stopping me from getting up and exercising.
