You know the old adage, one step forward two steps back. That is something which seems to hit me on a regular basis. I’ve been improving my eating habits and started exercising, and really enjoying playing football again under the ManvFat guise.
And so the backwards step, or missed step in my case. I missed the bottom step on my stairs and landed on my big toe, breaking it and displacing it (slightly).
Now I have to hobble around for the next few weeks, chewing painkillers like skittles and watching the world pass.
It is but a temporary setback, but reminds me of how fragile everything can be. Not everything will go your way, and sometimes very little will go your way.
Remember this though, if you stop now you will remain in darkness. The only way out is to fight, even when you’re hopping slowly toward the light.
