I was able to hold on to the exercise bike A lot longer, and when I got home today I was able to with the poncho that I was wearing over my head by myself.
I tried wheelchair yoga for the first time and to be honest I didn’t have high expectations. I never saw myself as the meditation Namaste type, however after a few minutes I got into it. I’m planning to go back and give it a go, but I am still on the fence about this whole thing.
I decided to keep going to Voices to workout. Stephanie assured me I am making small gains. I was able to open the refrigerator by myself. Plus it gives an excuse to get out of this hell hole of a building. I love the exercise bike. I need upper body strength. I think we get to a place where we all want to give up, but we can’t. We got to push through, so we can persevere.
What I’ve come to learn is that is small victories. Life is better when you compete against yourself, instead of others.
Stephanie killed me in the best possible way. Tried battle ropes for the first time. I did not lift them very high, but the fact that I was able to with them at all was amazing.
