I wanted to share this because I was feeling really cute yesterday BUT I also wanted to share this because I need to do some real talk. I need photos like this posted where I can see them because the past several weeks have been hella frustrating. I thought my #tendinitis
was under control so I started back to #refit
with modifications but now it hurts to walk too much. The injury has been exacerbating swelling in my ankles and that swelling has kept the scale either barely moving down or throwing caution to the wind and moving upward with abandon. I've upped my water intake, watched my sodium intake, and still I'm not seeing the quantifiable results that I hoped for based on my efforts. I had the thought last night of, "What's the point of trying to be healthy if my body so vehemently fights back against it?" So I took a deep breath, stepped back, and looked at these pictures I took, and looked at my progress photos, and reflected on how significantly my mindset has changed since this summer and realized that, even though I have this setback right now, I'm still doing so good. I'm making better choices, feeling better about the body I'm in, and recognizing so much more confidence. No injury or water retention can take that kind of #nonscalevictory
away from me, right? So now I'm researching #lifting
exercises for upper body, #lowimpact
exercises for my legs while I let myself heal, and coming up with a new plan. I'm going to stop looking at my tendinitis as a burden and start looking at it as an opportunity to try new things. And, after all, isn't that what this whole journey is about?
