I had my first physical therapy session today in over two weeks. TWO WEEKS, PEOPLE! I was busy with Humanities Month for work, volunteering for Domestic Violence Awareness Month, my big brother’s political campaign, and trying to deal with the unexpected death of a loved one. Now that things are somewhat back to normal and I feel like I’m somewhat back to normal, I have the time and focus I need to finish up my physical therapy.
It has been a little over two weeks since my last appointment but MONTHS since I last worked out with my trainer. My body is feeling the repercussions of my lack of intense physical activity and healthy eating. Today, I had to do a few exercises on the reformer and on the mat while holding myself up and now my arms are aching. It was tough. I really did let myself go these past few months. But, no sweat! I am happy to challenge myself to get back in shape. I’m going to rest up for now so that I will be ready for tomorrow’s set of required at-home PT exercises. I hope my aches and pains will be gone by the time I wake up.
Here’s to good health!
