Sorry I have been gone for so long, I don’t like to make excuses. So I’m not going to say that I didn’t have time. Im going to say I didn’t have anything to say.
I was stuck in a lull state. I couldn’t figure out what to do with myself. Don’t get me wrong I have been super busy with keeping up with rehab & work. What I mean with not knowing what to do, is not knowing what to occupy my mind with. My wheels are usually spinning at 100mph, but the past couple of months I feel like my mind has been on pause. Have I been afraid of boredom that I’ve stayed so busy?
I will admit that I was pretty down and was tired of the grind. My strength coach could see this in my face and body day after day. He had the great idea for me to go anywhere I wanted on my de-load week in the gym. So why not Hawaii?
This trip gave me a taste of fresh air. I am now back in the gym and more motivated than ever.
Maybe because the end goal is so near?
When I am back to being in full gear I want to answer this question. “What could you have done better in your rehab?” And I want my answer to be “Nothing.” I see this as knowing I put in everything I could.
With that being said I think a mental break is just as important as a physical break sometimes. It’s important to be able to switch gears, eat some good food, and relax for a minute.
Enjoy the process!
