Took this picture last Sunday right after I hurt my back.. I didn't think it was as bad then as it actually was so I was tryna pose buuuuut ouch.
Ever since then my body has not been reacting to anything very well. Haven't been able to do HIIT, lifts have been less than mediocre and some days I can't lift at all. Cardio is done on the treadmill at a slower pace than preferred.
I refuse to give up. I refuse to let this crush my spirit! I am extremely frustrated by it but I am trusting in God. I truly believe that everything happens for a reason. I'm going to keep taking my medicine and stretching and I'm going to keep praying and keep my faith strong. .
Will I compete in December? We'll just have to see. I am still cutting! I am still working as hard as my body will let me without taking it too far!
I will not break. I will not crack. I am using this to make me stronger. Mentally, physically(eventually), spiritually, emotionally! When life knocks you down, you determine how you respond. Happy Monday!
