What you’re seeing here is the face of a woman who finally got to lift after being told on Tuesday she wasn’t allowed to lift again until Sunday!
There is nothing glamorous about an injury and there is nothing more defeating than being told you can’t do something that you love because of said injury.
As most of you know, we are in the process of moving from Okinawa to Hawaii. We moved out of our home a few days ago and have been living in a hotel until our flight on Saturday. There hasn’t even been a semblance of a routine in my life and mentally, I have been all over the place. The gym is the place where I recently and find my groove so being away from it was pretty rough.
Am I feeling my best? No.
Am I looking my best? Definitely not.
BUT! I know that taking that recommended time off and staying away from compound lower body lifts is in my best interest right now. Why? Because if I want to get back in the gym and continue to live my best life there, I better take care of my injury and not make it worse!
So excuse my sweaty, fluffy mess, but I don’t even care because I love my body through all of its phases and stages. I’m deserves all the love, respect, acceptance, and care that I have to offer it so that’s what I’ve been giving it!
