Someone asked me today, ‘how do you do it mentally?’ My answer, ‘lots of constant work on myself and my mindset.’ So to be transparent, today is a day that I really need to work on that. Some days are just crappy, there’s so sugar coating it. My knee hurts. It’s affecting my mood and the rest of my body. It affected my PT session today.
The positive: the last goal I set was to be able to go up and down stairs, and I CAN DO THAT NOW!
The other goal, to get full extension of my knee, has not been met yet, though I’ve been working on it religiously...and affected my clearance to go back to work. Recovery can be super frickin frustrating.
This video was from Friday’s PT session, and it gave me a good laugh, so I thought it might make you giggle too. Laugh with me, not at me! Working on proprioception and coordination can really make you feel like Bambi on ice. 😂
I heard a great quote at my R+F event this weekend that’s resonating loudly today: ‘EASE IS A GREATER THREAT TO PROGRESS THAN HARDSHIP.’ Tomorrow is a new #aclwarrior #physicaltherapy #progress #aclrevision #meniscaltransplant #mindset
