@mattbennett44 wished me a happy 28th birthday & asked how I felt. I laughed thinking yes I'd like to take off 15 years.
Quickly those years flashed back to 2003, #hellno
a severely injured back left me debilitated where doctors said I would probably #noteverrunningagain let alone walk without issues. #pinsandneedles you know that feeling where parts of your body are either waking up or falling asleep? Yep that sensation I had in my legs and feet for almost a year. #thankstoyoga some type of #yogaeverydamnday and no I'm not talking about fast paced power vinyasa types of classes. I had already been doing yoga for over 8 years (oh, there's that number again. Wait till you read THAT post). I started yoga in 1995 to #preventbacksurgery (still have not gone under the knife!) to #preventbackpain so I could lead and live the #activelife that I love. #dontlooseyourplay Back to 2003 Saving my dog and husband from drowning in the river is what #wreckedme. I could barely walk let alone work out. I was on #painpills that were to take the pain away, but instead they took away more than that. I became heavy & lethargic, what else was there to do. Diagnosed also #hypothyroid which is so weird because I'm usually so #energetic.
Quickly flashed back forward 15 years through years of therapy, issues during pregnancies and loss, parents divorce, threatened, cancer diagnoses (not me), blackmailing, almost bankrupting (professionally & personally), arguments, getting sued, loss & death (also not me). So would I go #backto28 #heckno would I go back and change any of the happenings along the way? Getting sued or bad business choices maybe, but each and everyone of those things have #shappedme to be #whoiam today.
Now for the physical changes especially in this last year are #myhardwork, but I can honestly say I could not have done #withoutalittlehelpfrommyfriendsThanks to my coworkers for #pushingme and #supportingme and #helppingme #bethebest. #bodyignit @ignitsport @zakeshoo94 @rodney_filer34 @joesandhoff @midwest2cali @matbark1991 @gerardbruns
For real ya'll it is more of a total #lifestyle If you need something different, ask me.
