chronically_determined The past couple of weeks I've been feeling like I plateaued with my improvements.i was starting to feel a little down, and then this past week something dawned on me. I wasn't doing ENOUGH. It'd been such an effort to go to the gym and live with the pain and disorientation that I just took it for granted that I had to keep taking it super easy with myself. I was doing my normal routine and realized that not only I needed to bump it up, but the pain I felt was normal muscle pain from working out, not the pain of having overdone it and hurt myself. When it clicked I was sitting on the rowing machine and I got all teary-eyed. This time last year I was in a #neckbrace, wondering how I was going to keep working, driving, buying groceries, caring for myself. 1 year later and my persistence has taken me so far... farther than I thought possible. To confirm this, my acupuncturist told me Wednesday when I was hollering from the needles that I was doing better than she ever thought possible. I should have more issues remaining than I do. It's been a week of things hitting me between this and moving into an amazing new place. My life is beginning to turn around, in unexpected and marvelous ways. Lots of years in the making. Whew.
