They told me to stop….

Both of the PT kids told me… if it hurts, skip it for a day or two…

Oh I liked hearing those words, because that means I get to goof off and have a valid reason not to exercise…

That old excuse got put to the way side, several months ago and I have pushed to do exercises and when I make an excuse not to… I didn’t put up much of a fight an exercise was getting done every other day…

Now, I’m working out daily… and I think I’m at that point where I got to listen to my body or have a problem…

I remember these same pains in the Air Force… my right pelvis and hip joint causing me pain and my left knee causing me pain… the knee they shot full of steroid junk, gave me relief for about 20 years… no more shots though, they have been found to impact the brain and cause problems…

My upper body isn’t too much of an issue, other than the callous’s building up in my palms, from doing the strap exercises…

I just got on the elliptical and the pain hit, from the hip and knee.. so NSAID taken and day off from the workout…

It’s hard, when your brain is still young, but the body is saying, hold on ole woman, you got issues and we want to be recognized an not ignored any longer…

No more tests… no more x-rays… no more psych exams….

I’m 66 years old and my body was badly beaten as a child… I have to accept that those injuries aren’t going to go away, just because I exercise and do all the right things for my body and mind… I gotta slow down some, so the body can heal along with the mind…

My brain wants to go go go… my body is saying, I’m parking my ass, till you listen…

Yep, this has been one hell of a ride, getting my memories back…

I got to remember… this all happened to my first 17 years of life… I want the next 30 or so, to be less painful, not more…

Slowing down… I knew this day would come…. well my typing is slower….

Adorable Spite… looking for the positive in the moment in time….
