What does a virtual card game have to do with fitness??
Five days ago I had no idea what the deal (pun intended) was with this card game, Spider-2. My brother even said to me, “ugh, how can you be bothered?!”
That’s when I thought, “how can I NOT?”
So there I was, a little bit every night for the last 5 days thinking that I’m getting somewhere, but the cards kept stacking up against me. And I’d be back at square one.
Instead of letting frustration get to me, I kept saying “one day, I WILL beat you, just wait and see”. It became a challenge that I almost gave up - but I’m not a quitter. And believe it or not, Card Shark is one of my ways of dealing with stress! Maybe that’s why I persevered. Or maybe it was just that the fighter in me knew that to win you have to ‘play the game’; be strategic, and go for it.
I went for it, and here’s the result.
So my point is, if you’re not in the right headspace, you’re going to give yourself every opportunity to quit in any of life’s challenges. If you want it bad enough, you’ll play the game.
We chase the taste of victory because it’s that sweet destination along the winding path of endurance. If you can remember that each time you’re faced with a challenge, you’re already the victor.
Be one of a kind :))

Throwback Thursday
It’s okay to acknowledge the past, but leave it where it is. Your energy is better invested in what drives you forward.
Your future depends on it.

Wellness Wednesday
Let’s talk injury. Sometimes it’s inevitable - other times it comes out of left field. Whatever the reason, I know first hand how frustrating it is, having spent the last 6 months sidelined from hip and foot issues.
I had good days; I had bad days. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy, but I persevered, and it’s only the last week or so that I am feeling more positive about my situation.
If you’re in a similar predicament, here’s some of my tips to get you back to 100% 🔸Be patient - recovery takes time. Don’t rush it; you’ll just end up back where you started, or even worse off. 🔸Don’t let your thoughts get the better of you. If you work this out from the start, you’ll save yourself a lot of frustration and disappointment! 🔸Pay attention to your nutrition. Injuries add enough stress to the body by inflammation, so focus on reducing that as much as possible - eating lots more greens and less processed foods - your body will recover faster the less stress you ADD to it. 🔸Think of what you CAN do instead of what you can’t - in my case, swimming saved me mentally AND physically. Being immersed in the water allowed me to forget about my injury and focus on my breathing, which in turn calmed me down! Bonus? Improved sleep and better stress management. 🔸Get help! Don’t let Dr Google diagnose you! Seek proper diagnosis from an allied health professional. And do the right thing by your body - that is follow whatever advice you’ve been given to get back on your feet. 🔸Don’t let your injury stop you from moving. I know it can be disheartening not being able to do what you’re used to. Don’t suffer unnecessarily. Find a coach who understands and will work in conjunction with your allied health professional to get you moving again. It will benefit you in your physical recovery and keep your mind focused on getting better.

Remember: this phase is just temporary. Your body needs you to do the right thing RIGHT NOW so you can be back to your normal self in the near future.
Injuries can be debilitating if you let them take over. Be the one in control; modify, seek help and get back to what life has in store for you.
