Today on Fit2B in our Facebook group, Beth placed a challenge for us to acknowledge where we REALLY are, and to give ourselves permission to be in that space. Well that wasn’t her exact wording but that was spoke to my heart.
I’ve been really struggling post surgery with how slowly it feels like I’m “getting back” to where I was before surgery. Granted I don’t hurt as much in some ways as I did prior to surgery. And with the staples out the pain is getting easier post surgery. But I still feel like I’ve run part of a marathon doing a trip around the local supercenter. Those who know me, know I don’t run. Well if I am you should probably be running too. 🙂
Anyways… As I thought about this challenge and how I feel after just getting home from that trip to the supercenter. This is how I commented.
I’m having to acknowledge that I’m super weak after surgery and starting over at the F5 again… Trips to the grocery store are still rough, but I managed to push the baby in the cart before we started putting the heavy groceries in. 🙂
I do feel better that I know I can walk around the store easier. I am however discouraged that I can’t just take the girls out relying on Miss C to get Miss M in and out of the cart, she cannot she’s just not tall enough. So for now, while I’m still weight restricted I have to take it easy. Another week and we will see if I can start lifting Miss M. But I still need to give myself permission to say its too soon, or I hurt today and to take a step back from what may have been planned.
I love the Fit2B Facebook group, and I know I’ll receive encouraging words as I participate in this challenge by starting over with the Foundational Five routines again. Or Bedtime Mediatation, that one is lovely to do before bed. You can only be a part of the group though by becoming a member of Fit2B. If you are interested please use my link. 🙂
