Monday's Musings: On the Mend

Turning forty a couple of years ago forced me to look closely at my fitness and health habits.  I decided to stop complaining and begin doing.  I went on quite a journey with fitness and changesd many habits.  As of March, I felt strong, I was in the best shape of my life.

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 the power of love...I have visualized the future.

New, happy heights it will be.
