Exciting accomplishments

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 something new

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.

Things that suck about my disability

Yesterday I had gotten what started out as a sinus headache, that slowly turned into a migraine.  All of a sudden, I had the urge to poop, before I knew it poop was up my back.  I had to get my PCA to cut one of my favorite shirt off my body, so I wouldn’t get poop in my hair.  I had to throw my pants away.  Moments like this are the reason why I don’t like spending a lot of money on clothes.  I hate those kinds of days.   

I am going to continue

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. 

I was disappointed in myself last week

I ate five huge slices of pepperoni pizza and it was so greasy and delicious. I love this while I was doing it, But I hated myself afterwards.

I’m telling you this because we all have days where we fall off the wagon so To speak. We just got to get back on and keep going, because when it comes to your health quitting is not an option.
