When you can’t control what’s happening, challenge yourself to control the way you respond to what’s happening. That’s where your power is
This photo was taken the day before I broke my left arm!
Let’s make this very clear. This fracture is a blessing in disguise and things really could’ve been so much worse. When I really think back to all the events I’ve participated in and how hard I was pushing my body, I know I could’ve done a lot more damage. I put on a good amount of weight for this competition, which no doubt definitely had me at my strongest but I’m looking forward to focusing on being a strong healthy girl again without needing to push the limits to these kind of extremes.
I’ll come back strong but when you have the one thing you love stripped away from you and you can’t move a limb and it feels DEAD, it puts a lot into perspective…
An update on my progress:
It has been three weeks since the break and I’m in good spirits. I am making slow progress with finally being able to move my arm again and I’m praying my x-rays on Monday continue to show good alignment to avoid surgery.
Looking forward to sharing as much of my recovery as possible. As you guys have seen on my story I celebrate my daily gift either by going on long walks or getting a 30 minute bike ride in.
Fun Facts :
- I still have not tried to drive
- I sleep on the couch in a seated position
- I have my mom come down almost every other day to wash my hair in the sink
- AND I am so blessed to have so many people around me that continue to check on me send flowers and balloons and even stop by to help me with my rehab.
Thank you all for the continued support and encouragement I receive on a daily basis!
ZERO excuses and only one hell of a comeback to come!
