couldn’t stay away from the bench despite injuring my ankle this weekend bcs i’m clumsy and have weak ankles. might as well injure my back too by arching right?
anyways, my ankle sprain count from over the years has come to my attention. pretty sure it’s not normal to regularly and randomly roll your ankle while walking on flat ground and almost fall down because of it.
anyone know how to strengthen ankles?
Seriously it was a pretty awesome day today! had the first successful deadlift day i’ve had in a while! ended up hitting 675 off a deficit...which is a nice little pr for me! tried 690 afterwards but for some reason i tried to stiff leg it instead and needless to say it didn’t move very far 😂😂😂! not gonna lie my new awesome shorts from @feedmefightme probably helped me a lot 🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼! @americanirongym@barbell_republic
Some of you who read this will be struggling. and i’m sorry, because that’s not very fun. i’ve struggled a lot at times, but i’ve come a long way from being a person who was sad on the inside but pretended to be happy on the outside. i spent a lot longer doing this than i should have.
the reason being is that i relied too much on myself to make things better. i expect so much of myself that i couldn’t figure out why i couldn’t just be happy with what i had, which was a really great life. i spent a lot of time hiding away when i should have been reaching out.
my mistakes are ones i don’t want others to make. please don’t rely on relating to others on social media to make bigger issues seem less important, just because others are experiencing them too. if you’re experiencing something that you think isn’t quite right, reach out. seek help from a professional. if you don’t know where to start, ask a close friend or someone you know and trust and can confide in.
let’s not normalise behaviour that requires a little further assistance. let’s be unashamed about getting help when we need it. that’s part of growing up.
