April hit and with only five more P90X2 workouts left, my body shut down. It had enough. I didn't really listen and tried to continue working out. Not enough rest, bad posture and a stressful end of the school year caused a perfect storm.
I had to stop working out. As in, even walking caused pain. I listened and went to the doctor, chiropractor and finally, PT.
After time and hard work, I would say that I am on the mend. Some days, up at 99%. Other days, pain is still present. I can see the end of it though. I am visualizing being strong again. I have learned that I can simply maintain now. Fitness can occur without pushing like I am a world class athlete.
It has been a long summer, especially in the beginning when I was in constant pain. It effects mood. I couldn't get any projects done. Through it, Steve has been understanding. Hour and a half long therapy sessions twice a week and he has supported me.
I want to get back to being the old me again, fit, happy, strong. I just plan to get there with a bit more moderation now. I want to be the best me, pain free. He will help me get there.
I used the Park Drive collection from Webster's Pages to create this layout. Super pretty stuff!
I believe in the power of positive thinking...in the power of love...I have visualized the future.
New, happy heights it will be.
