I’ve hit the wall. This isn’t easy for me, this isn’t who I am, this isn’t how I envisioned it. It’s truly been a summer!! A summer of self discovery, truly learning who I am, the human that I want to be, accepting myself-flaws, weaknesses, strengths, gifts, my purpose. I dealt with an injury, adjusted my workouts, and gave myself grace. This summer I enjoyed the quiet, the fun, a taste of what the next chapter of my life will be like, I felt guilty, and I’ve accepted that it’s all going to be ok better than ok!! My body doesn’t work like it use to. FSHD has been a blessing in disguise, honestly. Unfortunately it also makes it hard to recover. Yes, I push myself because the alternative is a wheelchair and a feeding tube. I push myself because I won’t allow my diagnosis to define me or limit me. My diagnosis has shown me how truly strong I am and how no matter what I will move forward. I am a warrior, I’m more than a survivor, I’ve come through stronger and better.
Last night I was sleep by 8pm because my body needed it. This week, I’ll take it easy with my workouts. I’ll be in bed early, I’ll get back to a routine, and my meals will be simple and nutritious. Come September the real work will being. New goals, new routine, new vision, and I’ll #grinddifferent
I’m blowing up the comfort zone because who the hell wants mediocrity. Self care Sunday is now in full swing and I’m signing off for the rest of the night. Take care of yourself Sis. You need it and it’s ok. You are ok, it’s going to be ok. I’m living walking proof that you are going to be better than ok. You are going to thrive, win, and be happy because you deserve it. #SelfCareSunday
