Not my best workout (or sweaty selfie), but Strength :25 is in the books.
It's been a rough couple of days since getting back from Summit. For those of you who don't know, my mom is going to be having surgery tomorrow to remove part of her foot because of an infection that goes all the way down to her bone. It's scary and awful and I can't imagine how my mom is coping with it. Personally, I've been keeping myself busy so that I don't have to think about it.
But since posting about it on my Facebook page this morning, I've been slammed with emotions that I don't know how to deal with. So, I turned to exercise, which is my #1 coping technique these days. I cried through the entire workout. Half way through, I lined up my agility markers with the messages that I had written for myself so I could be encouraged to keep going. By the time it was over, I couldn't tell the difference between my sweat and my tears.
I'm not going to lie and say that everything is fine now. But, sometimes you just have to get the emotions out in order to move forward. I am thankful that my body allows me to continue to workout and that this habit has become a way for me to cope with powerful emotions.
If you are someone who prays, I would appreciate some intercession for my Mom. God is in control and I know He is working for our good.
