my focus was on acceptance.
accepting that i'm hooping in a small room, accepting that the nerves in my left hand still needs time to reactivate, accepting that my knees need time to heal too.
and whooopsie! after a while the feeling of happiness and content reached me. it's so awesome to have this lil space to myself, so wonderful that my wrist got this second chance thanks to modern medicine and positive reinforcenent pared with a lil stubborness, grateful for becoming more aware of my movements through this knee insecurity phase.
really felt this reduced flow!
aaaand today i was told that i can get at it again, yass!
over and out flowing - respecting body signals and being grateful for whats possible.
✨don’t force it!
as the end of the year looms and our schedules are busier than ever, i’m seeing alot of tired, stressed and burnt out humans 😥
if this is you, don’t force yourself into any training that you know you won’t recover well from.
don’t feel obliged to smash yourself because of summer, parties, social obligations or xmas!! this will all pass, soon it’ll be january ... and if you’ve hammered yourself in your workouts - but you weren’t eating or sleeping to recover from them - you might be worse off for it. 😩
if you’re feeling like poo, choose training types that are lower intensity for you, but will still make you feel gooood 🥰
easy outdoor treks (depending on your fitness level)
reduce the volume in your resistance training program!
take your dog down to the park.
kick a ball around or play cricket with the fam.
or grab a partner and play tennis, squash (yep it still exists!), hit the beach for a swim or a jog - there are so many options!
move your body!!! but please, be kind to it 🙏🙏
My ex 💯! but i promise myself i won’t ever again fall in love with the idea of them because deep down we know they are not who we want them to be. it’s more of us wanting to love them and hoping that what we want out of them really come from them. can’t force love because they put it down in the bedroom. have to be #woke and see the person for what they are and choosing to walk away so that we can one day meet the person who is truly the one for us ❤️💯🙌🏾 #saturdaynight#waitfortruelove#single#patientlywaiting#dontforceit#dontsettle#worthyoflove
